Hi I'm Ty

I live in the South and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Idaho and moved my family to Georgia over 10 years ago and have fallen in love with the South and the people. I have worked in many different industries in management positions from the grocery industry, internet companies, consumer electronics, and in distribution. Where ever I have worked I've been surrounded with great people that have made lasting impacts on my life. As a father of 4 children and the husband to an exceptional wife my life is busy supporting my children in their desire to play sports and in their muscial talents. My children and wife are the light of my life. I am proud to say that I am a Braves fan as well as a Cowboy's fan.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon becuase I have chosen to be. I grew up in an active Mormon home where the principals of the gospel were taught. I grew to learn for myself that the teachings of the church are the true principals of the gospel. Living in the South has given me the opportunity to live and interact with people of all types of faiths and beliefs that living in the Idaho did not afford me. I've learned to love and respect all their beliefs and them personally. I have found that the principles of the gospel and the doctrines that I have learned since my youth have left me fulfilled with knowing that my father in heaven has a plan for me and my family that is not taught any where else. I am a Mormon because the teachings have lead me to ask my father in heaven in prayer if the teachings are true and he has answered my prayers through the Holy Ghost who has spoken to my heart and mind.

How I live my faith

I live my faith every day. Each day my standards are measured by those around me in the office place. My standards have come to be respected and accepted as I've shown the same respect and acceptance of others. I have had the priviledge to provide service to my fellow man by traveling to New Orleans following hurrican Katrina and assist the emergency personal with cleaining out their damaged homes and helping them rebuild their lives. I've been able to assist hundreds of church members move out or move into the area which has built lasting friendships. As an active member of the church I have been involved in virtually every organization within the church and have helped organize, plan, and participate in many service projects that have aided in lessening the burdens of struggling familys, single mothers, and the elderly. I have been able to share my experience and provide assistance to many people who have been laid off from their work and assist them in finding new employment. I've been able to work with them on resume building, networking, and skill building in order to assist them in finding suitable employment. In the 10 years of living in the South I'd been laid off 4 times and this experience has helped me help others.
