Hi I'm Tyler Abbott

I'm a Gentleman, I'm a Scholar, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

My name is Tyler Jordan Abbott. I am the seventh son in a big family. I grew up in Yorba Linda, California. I love my famiy, the Lakers, basketball, my friends, and my dog Sam.

Why I am a Mormon

Because I want to live with my family forever. That is why I am a Mormon. Wouldn't you want to be one too?

How I live my faith

I think it's a day to day process, and it's all about becoming better. But knowing and living the Gospel are two different things. It's more than something in your head, it's gotta be something in your heart in order to really live it. So I guess it all comes down the day to day decisions, and deciding to follow Christ and his teachings before doing what the rest of the world does. And making those right deicisions is what brings us rea happiness that lasts.

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

Tyler Abbott
Well, I'm going to tell you what I think the purpose of life is. It's really just to be happy. And I think I have a fairly good idea how to be that way. It's all about the people you love. Family is what it's all about out, that's why Heavenly Father gave us families. Also, realizing your potential. Being the best you know how to be, surrounded by the people you love, with Heaveny Father and Christ's support behind you. Key to life, mis amigos. Show more Show less

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

Tyler Abbott
Well if you ask me, a testimony is something personal. It's basically your personal understanding and conection with God. A lot of the time a testimony is something than comes gradually, and not really all at once. It comes from personal experience, and so we have to do our part by obeying, then the blessings come, and we gain a testimony of that principal. So when you hear someone's testimony about something, it's because they've experienced it, and they know from that experience that it's true. Everyone can have a testimony, they just have to try these things out for themselves. Show more Show less
