Hi I'm Tyler

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and I am grateful for my Lord and Redeemer Jesus Christ.

About Me

Hi, I grew up in Utah. I am in a family of four, myself, mom, dad, and sister. My sister currently is married, I have a little nephiew too he's the best I've ever had. I've never been out of sate except when serving as a Full time missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Missionary work is the best part of being a member. We make new friends, meet new people, and enjoy one anothers company. I really love the Book of Mormon and know it is true. Some of my favorite scriptures are Alma 34, Alma 37:36-37, 1 Nephi 3:7 and Moroni 10:3-5. I remember having to ponder and pray to our Heavenly Father about the Book of Mormon, and having to put my faith in Jesus Christ and trust in our Heavenly Father that I would get an answer if this is the true church on the face of the earth today. Sure enough the answer came and I do know it is true and brings much joy and happiness you cannot find in the world. I would encourage all and challenge them to read Morni 10:3-5 and do what it says with sincerity and the answer will come as to weather this Book is true and that this is the True Church of Jesus Christ that has been restored on the earth today and that Jesus Christ is the head of this Church he lives, he loves us and truely desires for all of us to come to understand of all the treasures that can be yours; only if you seek by faith in him and our Heavenly Father.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the Church, but that does not mean that I am exempt from coming to know of myself that this is the restored church of Jesus Christ on the earth today. Just as I mentioned in the about me section, I had to pray sincerely and come to know for myself that it is true. If you do so sincerely I know you will get an answer to that prayer. I also know that all our prayres are answered. The main reason I continue in the faith is because it is true, and it strengthens me every day as I read, study, ponder, and pray about the Scriptures and speak with our Heavenly Father sincerely in humble prayer. Each day in my heart, on my knees in the morning, and at night. Also whenver there is a need. Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ are there they loves us and desire for us to return to live with them. Although that is only part of what they have in store for us. Alma 26:5 is the main reason that we are sent here to fulfill and complete. This being the case is so that each of us has, and will have the opportunity to live with Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ again.

How I live my faith

I do my best to do my duty to our Heavenly Father by serving his children every day, reading the scriptures, pondering about our savior Jesus Christ; and what he has done for us in his great and infinate Atonement. Each one of us is a child of our Heavenly Father, and I strive to remember that so I treat them accordingly. I serve in my callings that we as memebers are given, and do so faithfully. Without the faith I would not be who I am today.

What is faith?

Tyler
Faith is an action word, the first principle of the gospel of Jesus Christ is Faith on the Lord Jesus Christ. Without Faith we cannot even worship. Faith requires on our part doing our callings, serving Gods children, and when you are in doubt, or seeking help and answers to your questions about life; also praying and putting your full heart and trust in Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father; knowing that they truly do, and will answer your yearnings and respond to your needs. This all requires faith. Alma 33:11 also pertains to prayer, having faith that we can be forgiven of our trespasses towards our Heavenly Father by relying fully upon the merits and mercy of Jesus Christ through his Atonement. Faith requires all these things and so much more. Also another Scripture to ponder about on faith is 1 Nephi 7:12 "The Lord is able to do all things for men if they exercise faith in him."
