Hi I'm Ty

I'm a California boy, have a little California family, and I love being a Mormon.

About Me

I have a beautiful little family. My wife and 20 month old son mean the world to me. I love to come home from work each day to see them, visit with them and play with them. I work as a chemical engineer in an oil refinery and in my spare time I like to play raquettball, ski and play games with family and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the pure joy and peace that the full gospel of Jesus Christ brings to my life and the lives of those I love. Without the hope and faith that His teachings provide I would find it nearly impossible to live in this hectic and sometimes crazy world. The teachings of Christ and His gospel encourage and motivate me to be the best possible me because I know that all we learn and do on this earth is not in vain. I know that my family will last forever and that helps to overcome the day to day struggles I face. Having a wife and son beside me who I know will be with me for eternity helps me to know of and understand the love that our God, our Heavenly Father, has for us. I set apart time everyday to study the word of God. The word of God is found in ancient writings like the Bible and the Book of Mormon. It is also found in the words of God’s modern day prophets. All that we might ever want to know from our Father in Heaven can be found in His words. I have found that a daily study of them provides a great and uplifting experience for the start of each day.

How I live my faith

I work with the young single adults who are at the stage when they are trying to figure out their life. I find it very rewarding to meet with them each week, talk about the life–changing decisions that they are making, and hear about their strong faith in the gospel of Christ. They are pillars of strength to me as I see how they live their lives each day.
