Hi I'm Tyler

I'm a pilot in training. I love engineering, the outdoors and spaceflight, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Utah. I have family that lives all over the United States and Canada. I am an Engineering Student at BYU, and I have found a passion for anything that flies. I have found some of the happiest times of my life are when I am with my family in the familier Redrock deserts of South-Eastern Utah, or the high Uinta Mountains. Life at its greatest always seems to happen when to me when I am with my family, or extremely close friends. It is the little things that are the most special. Playing computer games with a brother, having dinner as a family, and especially when my family is together for special events. I see vast potential for outerspace, and in harnessing the vast amounts of energy and resources in relativly close proximity to our earth. I look at the stars and see the majesty of a God who loves each and everyone of us on this earth. We have a responsibility to this planet, and for what we create to shape it. I see the creations of God, and I see the hand of a master engineer. The designs in nature far out-class what we have created. If we can learn to borrow from nature what we design, the whole world will benefit. In nature lie the keys to extordinary advances in technology and a greater understanding of our Father-in-Heaven.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up in the faith. I do have pioneer ancestry on both sides, but while one is of the handcart and wagon variety. The other is of being a modern-day pioneer. My mother's family lived in Great Britain, where her parents met some missionaries and accepted the Gospel. They then sacrificed to come to the Western Hemisphere, and they then settled in Canada. My mother met my father in college, and the rest is history. I have been blessed with a heritage that lets me know that I am not just following a tradition. This knowledge, and also many personal experiences, have helped my to solidify my faith. Though I cannot say that I have been completely committed to the LDS faith. from the age of 15-17, I really just went through the motions of being a Mormon. I then met a wonderful man who inspired me to be better, and to really go through the conversion process myself. I determined to find out for myself if the faith of my father and mother was true. I read the Book of Mormon completely for the first time by myself, and took the challenge in Moroni. I asked God if the LDS faith was true. I felt the Holy Ghost tell me that it was true! The Holy Ghost also testified to me that I had allways know it was true, and that I just had to be awakened to the knowledge of it. That night when I went on my knees before the Lord has become a anchor for my life and will always be special. I testify to you that God always answers prayers as long as we are seeking for the answers. When the answer does come, It may not be what you expected, but you will know that it is your answer. I will continue in the faith of my fathers, because I now know for myself that it is true! Nothing can take that away from me. Jesus Christ is the Savior and Redeemer of the world. He has once again restored his church to the earth, and prophets once again proclaim His words and Gospel.

How I live my faith

Currently, I am away from home serving people in the New England area. I help to teach those who are interested in learning about the restored Church of Jesus Christ. I also look to help anyone and everyone in any way that I can. I am a full-time teacher, yet I am not here getting paid. I am using my own time and money to help uplift others like the Savior did when he walked the Earth. It is a blessing for me, and I hope to be a blessing to others.
