Hi I'm Ty

I'm from Georgia. I'm a missionary. I love sports and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm from south Georgia where football is life! I was an offensive lineman for all of middle school and high school and Iove it. I also played baseball for most of my life and even coached a little league baseball team for a few years before I came on my mission. I love all kinds of music and I was singer in a garage band for a little while. haha. We weren't that great! I love serving the Lord by being a missionary and will be sad to see it end, but then I will continue to serve Him in other ways. I'm planning on going to school for an Engineering degree once my mission is over and settling down and having a family.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints my whole life, but when I was 14 I decided I couldn't just go off what my parents and teachers told me was true, I had to find out for myself. So I did and through many prayers and lots of study of the scriptures, I came to know that this church is God's church once again established on the earth.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving a mission. I'm currenly serving in the Arizona Phoenix Mission and loving it. Each day I go out and teach people about their Savior and how they can strengthen their relationship with Him through scripture study, prayer, going to church and keeping the commandments that He has given us. Some days it gets hot, but it's totally worth it to help one of my brothers or sisters recognize God in their life.

What do Mormons believe about Jesus Christ? Do Mormons believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God?

I know that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and the Savior of the world. He is the only way to the Father and He provided that way through His Atonement, or sacrifice. He provided a perfect example of how we should live our lives and as we follow Him, we will be able to make it back to our Heavenly Father. Show more Show less

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Well, I do it because there are so many people out there that feel an emptiness in their life, or a seperation from God. Many people don't believe there really is a Heavenly Father that knows each and everyone of us. And these people are all God's children and even though they don't know Him, He wants them too. So I go out and try to help people understand this principle. God is our loving Heavenly Father. He wants all of us to come back and live with Him again. And we can only do this through the way that He has prepared and that is the gospel of Jesus Christ. As you come to know that God loves and knows you, then you will feel more of a purpose for your life and desire to follow Him in all that you do. Show more Show less
