Hi I'm TY

I've been called alot of things a gamer a father a husband! But most importantly I've been called a Mormon!

About Me

I am married and have a daughter and two step sons. I play video games (xbox 360). I work for the rail road. I like playing sports and spending time with my family. I grew up in california.

Why I am a Mormon

When i was 8 i was baptized like most 8 year old kids whos families are lds. At that time i didn't know what it meant to be a member of the lords church. My family was inactive for most of my youth, which lead me to fall astray. At the age of 21 I decided to go on a mission not truly knowing if the church was true. At the start of my mission I read the Book of Mormon for the first time. Only after reading and praying with a desired heart, the lord let me know it was the true church through the holy ghost. This church mean everything to me. It gives me the knowlege of who I am. I know where I came from, why I'm here, and where I'm going. I have the knowlege that I have more than just this life to look forward to.

How I live my faith

I have been given the responsibility to teach sunday school to the 14,15,16 year old youth. This calling from the lord has blessed my life. Every Sunday we study the gospel. Right now we are studying the New Testiment. I also have been giving the calling to organize blood drives in my community. I also have two families that I visit with and teach. This allows me to build relationships with people. I am so very blessed to have these callings, it allows me to understand and grow closer to my Heavenly Father and Savior.

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

TY
Anyone can go to church and listen to someone speak, and never be fully satisfied. It is only until we read that we will have a full understanding of what our savior has done for us. The scriptures keep me on a path which allows me to live with Heavenly Father and the Savior. Every question I have ever had has been answered in the scriptures. If we follow the teachings of the scriptures we can live a christ like life. By reading the scriptures I know how much Heavenly Father loves all his children. Show more Show less
