Hi I'm Tyler

I grew up in California. I'm the 10 child of 13. I am an Eagle Scout & student. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I'm a college student and when I'm not at school I'm at work! I come from a large and awesome family of 13 children and 2 very loving (and patient) parents. I am an uncle of 25 (as of today - this could change at any moment;). I love to spend time with my family - especially when it's really loud and crazy:) I have a passion for photography. When I have free time I love to go out and take pictures of nature and cool buildings! I own a small videography business too! So when I have the chance I get paid to do what I love! I am an eagle scout and a very involved citizen! I love America and it's beauty. I feel so blessed to have the freedom I have. I also love this world for it's beauty. One day I hope to be able travel around the globe and see Gods many creations!

Why I am a Mormon

I love my Savior Jesus Christ! First and for most, my faith is centered in Christ and his atoning sacrifice for me and you. That is the core of the gospel. If you were to comare my faith to a tree, Jesus Christ and his atonement would be the trunk and the roots of that tree. I have come to know that Jesus is the Christ through reading the Book of Mormon and the Bible. That is where I learned of his life and teachings. Through prayer I have come to know the truth that God is real and that He loves me, that is why He sent his Son to suffer and die for me and you. I remember kneeling in my room when I was about 11 or 12 and asking Father in Heaven "are you there?" I can't describe the peace and joy that I felt in my room that night. He is there. He hears and answers us. We are His children. Through the power of the Holy Ghost you too can come to that knowledge. Whenever I look up into the sky at night and see the stars, I think of how vast and great Gods creations are. To think that an ALL knowing, ALL powerful God is our Father and that He knows and loves us perfectly and wants us to be happy....I can't describe the peace and happiness that this brings! I'm at a point in my life where I am looking for answers of what to do with my life. To know that Heavenly Father knows me and my worries and wants the best for me is what brings the peace! I invite all to come and see. Ask God if He is really there. I testify that by the power of the Holy Ghost you may come to know this beautiful truth!

How I live my faith

I am blessed with many opportunities to live what I believe. I volunteer at a local homeless shelter where I help prepare and serve meals for the homeless. I also have the chance to work with youth who are trying to make something of their lives in spite of tough family and community back rounds. I also have the chance to garden for several elderly couples as well as take out their trash. On my trail to become an Eagle Scout in the Boy Scouts of America I served hundreds of hours in many different ways! From beautifying parks, to helping someone in need of a helping hand. I love to serve. I do these things for one reason: Love. I love my Savor and because I love him I follow his injunction "if ye love me, keep my commandments". If I have ever felt that I was ever better that someone I always found that after serving them I saw them the way Jesus see's them. That is the cool thing about service! You always get more from it than those you serve. I know that happiness come from thinking of others and showing my love for them by serving them.
