Hi I'm Tyler

I love snowboarding. I am spontaneous. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I hope that I can tell you about myself and make it simple. I am a very laid back person. I love to do random things with my friends. I am really grateful for my friends in my life because we were able to have a lot of fun and grow together. I love to do sports! Basketball is one of my favorites. I am still wondering what I will do with my life but I know that as I have fun and do as the Lord wants I will know what I need to do. I grew up on a farm, so I had to learn to work. I didn't really like it but I did enjoy the service I could provide my family in helping out. I love to serve people. It is one of my talents I believe. I am currently in college after returning home from my mission in Cleveland Ohio. It is fun, because I love to learn. Somethings that I would like to do are to help people, snowboard, and just enjoy God's creations. I love to have fun! If I never had fun in life I would probably just hate it. That is the beauty of the Gospel it shows us how we can have fun and enjoy what our Heavenly Father has given us. I love to be active and outside. I love snowboarding it really is a way for me to release. I love hanging out with my friends and just having a good time. There is so much to do in life and why not enjoy it with those that you care for. I like the colors red and yellow. I love mexican food! I am pretty random but that is what makes it fun. I really am just a normal person that is for sure!

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member my whole life but I am a Mormon because I have come to know that this church is Christ's church. I really love this church because it has blessed my life and I have come to know for myself that Christ is my Savior and Redeemer and that he suffered for me and not only me but everyone in the whole world. I have come to know that this church is true through prayer. I grew from my parents testimony and I had to find my own testimony and I was able build on that as I had served my mission in Ohio.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by how I act and apply the things I learned from serving the Lord on a mission. I am going to school but that doesn't mean I can't live my faith. I try my best to do as the Savior taught and I try to live my life as he would have me do.

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Tyler
The Atonement of Jesus Christ is the pinnacle of human existance. What I mean is that the fact that Jesus Christ did what He did, makes a way possible for us to do all that we can in order to live once more with our Heavenly Father. The Atonement consists of three things: The Garden of Gethsemane, Death on the Cross, and the Ressurrection. When Christ died for us he took upon him all the sins, and pains of the world. You and I all can now be saved! (Alma 7:11-13) It was neccessary because if Christ did not do that, we would be subject to never again return to live with Heavenly Father. The question you might ask is why Jesus Christ? Well He is the Son of the Living God! He loves us so much and he wants for us to have the blessings of the gospel. This knowledge has blessed my life. It is something that I can't deny, I have felt the warmth of his love. I have felt His love, and I know that is is something that is of great vaule and importance. Show more Show less
