Hi I'm Ty

I'm a Veteran of the United States Naval Submarine force, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up on a ranch in the north western panhandle of Nebraska. After high school, I enlisted in the United States Navy and went straight to Submarines. Now, being a disabled veteran, I work for homeland security. I grew up in a christian family and have always known the Holy Bible to be true and believed in my lord and savior, Jesus Christ. In this, I have always had question in my religious beliefs. Over time I fell out of the church and started falling into sin and a long road of heart ache. After two failed marriages, I knew that doing the right thing wasn't enough when you are with the wrong people and even more destined to failure when I wasn't the best man that I could be for them. This leads me to why I am a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I fell into the Mormon church with pure dumb luck, and Love. I met a wonderful woman that grew up in the Mormom church. I knew that I wanted Christ back in my life and yearned to live the life that I knew that I was capable of. My now wife turned me on to the Book of Mormon. We started reading it together and I instantly recognized the answers to the questions I have always had going to my former church. The more that I read and studied while bouncing back and forth between the Holy Bible and the Book of Mormon, the more I knew beyond the shadow of a doubt that the Book of Mormon is true. Since then I have been baptized in the church and merried to the love of my life. The difference is, this one loves me the same, for this life and the eternal one in Heavan.

How I live my faith

Since joining and becoming active in the church, I have accepted the calling of Ward Missionary. In this I am able to assist the Missionarys in meeting and helping non members see and find the truth that truth that I have for themselves. It is truely a blessing to give the gift of truth that I have been given, to other people. Outside of the church I am a member of the Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association. This is the side of my life that at first was a conflict of interest. That's what I thought at first at least. Keeping to my beliefs, I am able to show my fellow leather clad veterans that being a Christian, being a Mormon is still Cool. By not using alcohol, tobacco, profanity etc. my friends and family get first hand knowledge that doing the right thing is not the end of the world, on the contrary, it opens up for conversations about my religious path to follow Christ and makes it possible to share my testimony to those who need it. Every Sunday, I look forward to seeing my Mormon family. One that will always accept me, always love me and will be by my side in lifes trials and tribulations to come. The part that excites me the most is that my Wife and I will be able to have eachother and our families for eternity.
