Hi I'm Tyler

I'm a Mormon, and I plan to serve a full time mission after graduating from High School!

About Me

I am 18 years old and a senior in High School. I have always loved sports and have played close to ten different sports in competitive leagues. During high school I have played football and soccer. I also do Pole Vaulting for our high school track team. I have worked as a lifeguard over the past two summers and enjoyed being able to make a difference in my community by having a job that directly corresponds to our patrons well being.I love my family and my greatest experiences in life have all been shared with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I was blessed to be born into a loving family where both of my parents were faithful and active members of the LDS church. Being able to grow up in the church has helped me to grow into an intelligent, kind, and determined young man. My several teachers and leaders in the church have helped me learn and understand the gospel and the blessings that my Heavenly Father has given to me. I am grateful for my family, my friends, my teachers, and leaders and for the wonderful examples they have been to me. I know that I was sent to this Earth for a purpose to learn and to grow and to become what my Heavenly Father plans for me to be. I know that God answers our prayers and that he loves each and every one of us very much. I know that I have an eternal family that I will be able to live with even after we leave this life. I have a testimony of the Book of Mormon and I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet that was called of God. I love my family and want to be able to live with them after I die and I know I can do this by following the God's commandments. My beliefs and my religion is very important to me and within the next year I plan to share my beliefs by serving a full time mission for my church. I know with all my heart this church is true and I am excited to be able to share this knowledge with all those I come in contact with on my mission and even afterwards as well.

How I live my faith

I am a priesthood holder and a member of the priests quorum in my ward. I am a home teacher along with my father and we visit our home teaching family every month. Being a home teacher is an awesome opportunity for me to share gospel principles with a family in my ward every month and gain experience in teaching lessons that can help me to be a better missionary in the future. I also serve as the first counselor in my priest quorum and help include all the members in my quorum in church activities and services. This opportunity to serve allows me to help the young men in my ward learn and grow along with me in several different capacities. I know that this calling is also helping prepare me to become a better missionary and leader in the future and I am glad for this opportunity to serve.
