Hi I'm Tyson

I have a fascination for science, I want to leave the world better than I found it, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

As I have always had an interest in how the world works, I took up studying physics and got a BS in the field a few years ago. Now I'm continuing my education as a graduate student in engineering. I hope to eventually work on solving problems that will help improve how we live. I am currently working on a prototype medical instrument, and in the future, I may work on other things like finding alternatives to fossil fuels. In my free time, I enjoy reading, playing ultimate frisbee, and spending time with family and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

There are many reasons why I am a Mormon. First of all, I know that Christ is my savior. His gospel brings joy to my life. It gives me hope that I, along with my family, will be able to return to my Heavenly Father after this life. The gospel of Christ also brings to me an increase in love towards those around me. It is a love beyond that which I would attain without the true gospel. It is a love born of the glorious surety of who I am, the surety of who everyone else is, and the knowledge of the plan our Heavenly Father has in place for us. Second of all, it is through the teachings of the Book of Mormon and the words of the modern day prophets that I have come to truly know the gospel of Jesus Christ. Through the Holy Spirit, I have been able to grow in the knowledge that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is God's true church upon the earth. The witness is God given and is only kept as I remain humble before Him.

How I live my faith

Every week I go to church, and I do my best to fulfill the responsibilities I have there. I currently help keep track of records for our ward (a ward is essentially a congregation). As I serve, I know that I am helping the work of the Lord to move forward. I strive to share the knowledge I have of Christ with all, including those within my church as well as those who are not of my faith. I do my best to live as God would have me live by giving service to those around me and by keeping his commandments.
