Hi I'm Tyler

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a very happy father of four children, with one more on the way. My wife and I have been happily married for 10 years. I have a bachelor's and a master's degree in business, and currently work for a university as both an administrator and a faculty member teaching business courses. I enjoy singing, playing basketball, and doing fun things with my family!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have received a personal witness, through much study and prayer, of the truthfulness of the teachings of the Church. Reading and studying the Book of Mormon, Bible, and other teachings of prophets, both living and dead, brings a great feeling of peace and comfort to my life. I know that I have a Heavenly Father who loves me and wants me to be happy, and that through the sacrifice of His Son, Jesus Christ, we can return to live with Him and all of our loved ones again after this life. This knowledge gives me great comfort in times of difficulty and trial. It also deepens my relationships with both family and friends, because I know that those relationships can continue on for eternity after we leave this life.

How I live my faith

Our faith is one grounded in volunteerism and service to others. We believe that as we are serving others, we are also serving God. As such, every member is typically asked to serve in some capacity within the church, and we are given, and encouraged to seek, additional opportunities to help our communities. One calling I have had in the past was working in our local scouting program. I truly enjoyed working with young men in scouts, as I got to see them learning new things and build character that the scouting program helps foster. I currently serve in a leadership capacity within my local congregation. I, along with others in the congregation, have a responsibility to oversee the progression and wellbeing of the people living in our area. As such, we regularly visit various families, and provide service and assistance to anyone who might be in need.
