Hi I'm Tyler

I'm from Utah. I love basketball and graphic designing. I also crave Oreo ice cream, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi, my name is Tyler and I am 20 years old. I have three brothers and no sisters. I have been called to serve in the California Fresno Mission. I went to BYU-Idaho for a year before I went on my mission. I love to play basketball and do graphic designing. I like to create posters, flyers, etc. I have lived in Utah for almost my whole life. Utah is the best because of the people. I love living in a state where there are so many people who share the same standards as I do.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know this gospel is true. I have read the Book of Mormon and I know that Jesus Christ lives. My family and friends have helped me to live the gospel more fully. I have grown up in the church my whole life. I love being a Mormon because I know that I have learned things in this church that have benefitted my life. Being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has helped me become a better person. I know this church was restored for us through the prophet Joseph Smith. I know the Book of Mormon contains the gospel in its fullest. It is the word of God. I know that we can find the real truth in the Book of Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith when I study the scriptures. The scriptures, especially the Book of Mormon, are the best sources to look for truth in my opinion. I go to church every Sunday and I want to share the gospel to people who don't know it yet. I earned my Eagle Scout Award when I was 16. For my project, I made first aid kits for people who live in a village called Salkantay in Peru. There was not much medical care in the village of Salkantay. Interns who worked for humanitarian aid went to Peru and translated the English instructions in the first aid kits into Spanish. They helped me a lot with my Eagle Project, and I am happy for those people in Peru that have access to medical care now.

What do Mormons believe about the Holy Ghost? Who is the Holy Ghost?

Tyler
We believe the Holy Ghost to be part of the Godhead along with God and Jesus Christ. They are all separate beings. The Holy Ghost is a personage of Spirit that can testify to us through our feelings and thoughts. It brings comfort. The Holy Ghost teaches us when we listen. The Holy Ghost can only be with us when we are making the right choices and when we submit our will to the will of our Heavenly Father. Show more Show less
