Hi I'm Tyler

I grew up in Oregon and Utah, I love everything about the South, Sports and being outside are what I do and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 23 years old. Born and partially raised in Oregon. GO DUCKS!!! I moved to Utah when I was a teenager and absolutely love it there! I am currently serving a full time mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in South Carolina. I put school on hold to come out here and serve. I love playing sports and anything outside. I love to learn and talk to people. Canada is place I'm going to visit. I'm known for my always happy and jolly attitude with a big smile on my face! I always strive to live life to the fullest, Laugh at every possible waking moment and love everyone that crosses my path.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church and truly took it for granted. I fell away from the church for a pretty good min. Why? I didn't know who Jesus Christ was. I always had it in my heart that happiness was there but I never listened. Over time, life became harder and harder. Life came crashing down and I came to realize there is a bigger picture than what I was looking at. I began to seek for happiness. Some wonderful examples in my life helped me to return back to church. I knew there was something there that I could find out. Was it true? I didn't quite know, but something was pulling at my heart to figure things out. As I began to return to church and straighten up, the love of my Father in Heaven began to fill my heart. I remember being in an institute class as the teacher taught about the Atonement. At that moment it all seemed to turn on. I knew Jesus Christ lived. I knew He came to this Earth for me personally. I knew the Book of Mormon testified of Him. True Happiness prevailed and the Atonement of Jesus Christ changed me into who God needed me to be. That is why I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by spreading the Gospel far and wide to the wonderful people in South Carolina!!! There is no better feeling than helping someone to recognize truth and grasp on to it. I continually study the words which He spoke to His Prophets and Apostles that walked this Earth. Daily fervent prayer really keeps the Faith nice and strong.
