Hi I'm Tyler James

You name it, I will try to play it, I love sports and would play all day, but most of all, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hey! Just a little about me, i grew up in the AMAZING state of Uah, some would call it a desert, but i call it home. I grew up loving and playing sports and played all that i was allowed! But my favorite of them all is football, just something about it so different! I played for a short five years and I loved every day of it. And take any chance i have to play it with friends or family, maybe even the occasional video game. And a strange hobbie of mine is that I actually enjoying mowing lawns... Yeah it may sound kinda strange, but there is just something about being out in the sun and just mowing a lawn. Its a great past time! I am the youngest child in my family, and i love them all! And right now I am doing the greatest thing of my life, serving a full time mission!

Why I am a Mormon

I have had the amazing opportunity to be born and to grow in the church! But believe me, its alot harder then it sounds. For as long as I can remember i have been going to church with my family and going to all other church functions and always enjoyed them. I was never very good at reading the scriptures.And as i got older the choice to keep going was getting tougher, I started to pull the "im to busy" to card. But boy was i wrong! The last couple of months I have truly found the gospel and how amazing it really is! I know that the key to being happy and to have joy in my life was as easy as praying for help and to actually READ my scriptures! I love the scriptures and all of the incredible stories that are held in that book! Its so simple, all i had to do was open up the Book of Mormon and I would find exactly what I needed to hear and read, without fail! It proved to me, that my loving Father in Heaven knows who i am and is always watching and listening to me and will do anything to help build me to be a better, stronger person who is always happy, about one thing or another, and it was as easy as that. I now love this gospel, and look forward to church, and only wish I had more time to read the Book of Mormon!

How I live my faith

Well right now, I am having the greatest time of my life serving a full time mission in the beautiful land of Raleigh, North Carolina! Lets just say, its not exactly the same as Utah.. But I love it here and everything i am doing! I get to go around and talk to everyone i can about this great gospel! Its the greatest thing I have ever done in my entire life and am so thankful that i have this opportunity to help others and serve all those that i can!

What blessings can we receive through the gift of the Holy Ghost?

Tyler James
The amazing thing about the Holy Ghost is that he can and will ALWAYS be with us, and all we have to do is to, Stop, Listen, and Feel! Through the Holy Ghost we can recieve the gift of comfort, because he truly is always with us and we know, that we are never alone, and he will always be there. We also recieve the gift of protection. He is always with us, and he will protect us the best that WE allow him to. Those are two of my favorites and there are many many more. But the amazing thing about the Holy Ghost is that everybody can recieve it! And through it, it will bring joy to our lives! Show more Show less
