Hi I'm Tylissa.

I live in Arizona and I'm currently preparing to serve a mission in Utica, New York. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I just finished my freshman year at Arizona State University and I loved it! I am majoring in Kinesiology, although I have not decided what I would like to do with it. I do have time to figure it out, partly because I will be leaving home for 18 months to serve as a full-time missionary. I have been called to serve in the New York Utica Mission, I report to the Provo MTC on August 5th, and I could not be more excited.

Why I am a Mormon

I decided to become a member of The Church of Jesus Christ when I was 15 years old. I know that my life is profoundly better because of it. I know that I am a daughter of a loving Heavenly Father. I know Jesus Christ is my savior and through the atonement of Christ I can overcome, endure, change, and return. I know Joseph Smith was called of God and that the church of Jesus Christ was restored to this earth. The Book of Mormon is the word of God and I have come to know this through reading it and praying about. Though times are certainly not always east I know that Christ is always there reaching out His hand to help.

How I live my faith

I attend church meetings and activities throughout the week and I have recently been attending a missionary preparation class.
