Hi I'm Tyler

Grew up in New York. Graduated in Economics. I love wakeboarding and being on the lake. I now live in Georgia and it is awesome.

About Me

I live in Georgia with my wife and baby daughter. I love sports, grilling and cooking, spending time with family, and languages. I lived in Chile for two years as a missionary for the church of jesus christ of latter-day saints, my wife is Colombian, and I'm currently studying Italian in my free time. If I could be anywhere I'd be at the lake with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

Through sincere prayer and answers from the Holy Ghost I learned that Jesus is the Christ, and that God called Joseph Smith to be his prophet (who restored the fullness of Christ's gospel). I wouldn't be a Mormon if I didn't have an answer from God himself. It's awesome to have your own knowledge from prayer, rather than having to trust in man's interpretation of things.

How I live my faith

Pray often (trying to remember to listen with willingness). Read the Bible and book of Mormon frequently (trying to apply what I learn), and try to serve in the church and wherever I can.

Who are the Mormons?

Tyler
The word Mormon is a nickname referring to members of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. "Mormons" are Christians who believe in the Holy Bible. We also believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God and a companion to the Bible. The Book of Mormon is a record of the people who lived anciently in the Americas, and their belief in and prophesies of Christ. It's my personal belief that God reached out to more people and prophets than the small number we read about in the Bible from the eastern hemisphere. Salvation comes in and through Christ. A knowledge of the truth of these things has to come by prayer and a witness from the Holy Ghost. By the power of the Holy Ghost you can know the truth of all things. Over 15 million people have confirmed that they have received a witness from the Holy Ghost that the Book of Mormon is true. Show more Show less
