Hi I'm Tyler

I love joking around, I love basketball, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hey, my name is Tyler. I was born in New York, raised in Utah, and have been Mormon all my life. I was able to get my eagle at the age of 13 and continued getting other awards like the varsity letter, the Denali, and other such things. I love playing sports, but especially basketball. I am really good at the circus shots, or so i'm told. I enjoy playing board games; especaily Risk. I also love comic books and could tell you all you want to know about comics; maybe more than you want to know. :) I love to make people happy and laugh.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because of the testimony that I have that this church is true, not just because of my parents or family tradition! I did what every missionary will tell you, I prayed about the book of Mormon to find out if it was true. I earnestly prayed with an open heart and a contrite spirit wanting to know if these things were true. I received an answer just like everyone else has and now I'm sharing it with everyone I can. I love the gospel it truly does change lives it has changed mine and i am happier then ever because of it. :) I know that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is true and I am so excited to continue to share that knowledge with everyone! I know these things are true because I feel it in my heart. I know Thomas S. Monson is a prophet of God and he is here to guide us and lead us at these times. I can't express enough gratitude for my savior. He has truly changed my life, He has carried my burdens, He has felt my sorrow, and He has never left my side. :)

How I live my faith

I'm on a mission right now serving in the Charleston West Virginia Mission. I'm the one who comes knocking on your door in a white shirt and tie wanting to share a message to you, and I absolutely love it. I love it, because I know that what I share is true! I know what I teach is what Christ would teach. I know that it can change lives and it has changed lives, including my own. I don't ask anyone to do anything I haven't done already or wouldn't do myself. I'm so grateful for the opportunity I have to share what heavenly father has let me know. I can personally testify that I know that this church is true. I know that God is my loving Heavenly Father. He cares so much for me; enough to send me here on earth to get a body and to preach His Gospel. This is the Lord's church and I am involved in His ministry. There is nothing else I would rather be doing right now than preaching His gospel! This is how I live my faith.

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

Tyler
We believe that Jesus Christ is not only our savior and redeemer but he is the son of God and he is at the center of our church. I know that Jesus atoned for my sins he died on the cross for me and bled at Gethsemane for me and for that i am eternally grateful. I bear my testimony that i know that Jesus Christ live that he lives so we can live once more after death he lives to make man free. The atonement means to do something that someone cannot do for themselves, i can't pay the price for even one of my sins but Christ has already done it for me so i can live with my family after this life so i can experience all the joys and wonders and hardships and sorrow so i can grow and become a better person each day and come closer to him.
