Hi I'm Tyler Passey

I'm a Writer, an Athlete, a Returned Missionary, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm just a kid from Washington state, I'm the oldest of seven children in my family. Also, my family is the best, just sayin'. I love to read and write books, and my goal is to one day be a published author of fantasy novels. So yeah, I've got a crazy imagination. I also love to be outside doing things such as working around our little farm, playing tennis, soccer, football, and basically any sport. Camping and hiking are two of my favorite things to do. If I could, I'd live in a tent and camp for my whole life. I love the beautiful world we live in and love to be out enjoying the glorious creations that God has made for us. And of course being a lover of the outdoors I love animals! I'm so grateful for all that I have and for all that I've been given in my life, and the wondrous blessings that I have enjoyed thorough out my life.

Why I am a Mormon

The Church is true! It has been restored to the earth by Jesus Christ through the prophet Joseph Smith. In a world full of commotion it is easy to get caught up in a very busy life. I am, and love to be, a Mormon because I know that no matter what happens in life I can always turn to the Lord for help and guidance. God has provided a way for all to return to live with him. And it is dependent upon our choices. Every day I try my best to do what the Lord wants me to do. Not because I need to do what he says but because I choose to. The gospel is an extraordinary thing and I am so glad to be a part of it. Finally, I am a Mormon because I know that this Church is true and I want everyone else to feel the peace, comfort and love that comes from the restored gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I am certain that God wants us all to be happy. I try to lift those who are struggling or sad in any way I can. I want everyone to feel the everlasting joy that the gospel brings. I know that by sharing the gospel with others I am doing the Lords will. We have been given a marvelous and unmatched example of our Savior Jesus Christ. I do my best to follow his example and serve those around me. The joy that comes from service is extraordinary and powerful and has completely changed me as a person. One of my favorite scriptures defines exactly how I want to act as a follower of Christ. "Arise and shine forth that your light may be a standard to the nations." I love this church with all my heart and I want everyone else to feel that same love. We are all children of a loving Heavenly Father who wants the best for us. Sometimes I stumble in my quest to be all that God would have me be, but because of the Atonement of Jesus Christ I can always get back up and keep moving forward. With all the strength that God has given to me I will do my best to help other people to come back to Christ, because I know that's where God wants all his children to be.
