Hi I'm Tyler

I'm a Mormon. I grew up in the church, but am currently living in another country serving as a missionary.

About Me

I felt like i was just your average kid. i liked to do this or that. i had a thing for video games; computer, xbox, even the gameboy on long drives. but thats just what i did in my down time. i love to go out to the lake and wakeboard, drive out of town to find a place to go snowboarding, on the occasion i liked to take the time out and go paintballing. but most of all i love to swim!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a long time member family of "The Church or Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints" and as such i joined in in all the activities that they held between, Sunday services and activities they held for youth in the church though out the week. For me it just felt like the normal thing to do. It was just what I grew up doing, but as I started my high school experience. I started to reach out more, my circle of friends grew. It grew from just that group of member kids. I started to talk to people of other religions. It was there that I started to see real different beliefs about things. And it was there with those people I really started to realize all those things I had grown up learning and following, other people didn't believe in, some even shocked. It was then that I started to question what I had really believed. It was only then that I tested what I had learned. Did I really believe what I had been taught? It was there that I really started to search, not only the beliefs of the church but doctrines, I started to search myself, what did I believe down in my own heart. I know with out a doubt that this church is true the principles and doctrines it teaches are the truth. I know that god restored the true church to the earth again through a prophet of god. I know its hard to explain how you can saw that you can "know" something like that. But pick up a Book of Mormon for your self and read the introduction. You will know how to "know" something as great as that, I testify of that, I know that is the truth!

How I live my faith

I'm a mormon. i live my faith by going out and living what i know to be true principles. currently, i have devoted my time and energy to serve as a missionary for the church. And it is by far one of the greatest experiences i have ever had! our "job" if you could call it that it to find and teach people about, what we as members of the church believe. I get questions every day. What does this mean? Why is like this? just all sorts of different things, im not perfect i cant come out every time and give you the perfect answer, right off the bat. But i know, with this gospel at our hands we can know anything and everything.

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Tyler
Yes, we believe god has called a living prophet for our day, he called them in the past, more specifically the time of the bible. But more recently he called a prophet named Joseph Smith and through him god restored the priesthood keys to the earth again and again giving all of us here on earth that guidance only a living prophet can give.
