Hi I'm Tyler

I have lived in Washington Utah my whole life. I love math and music, and I have a Book of Mormon blog at red5blog.blogspot.com

About Me

I'm Tyler. I love music and art and being creative. I hope to be able to follow my art where it wants to take me because I know it makes me happy. I write music, play guitar, draw, paint, and write short stories and poetry. I also love mathematics and problem solving. I plan on getting my degree in civil engineering and becoming an engineer with hopes of owning my own engineering firm. I love my family. I have a mother and father, a sister, three brothers, a brother-in-law, and a sister-in-law. They are incredible and I'm so thankful for them.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have a testimony of The Book of Mormon that I have obtained and nurtured by reading the book. I know that the book is true because it brings me closer to Christ every time I read it. If The Book of Mormon is true, then The Bible is true and Christ, in all reality, came to the earth to perform His atonement to show His infinite love for us. If Christ really came to the earth and had His ministry, then we can all know where to look for a source of forgiveness and salvation. If The Book of Mormon is true, then Christ actually restored His gospel through Joseph Smith and that church, Christ's church, is now on the earth.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving as the primary chorister in my ward and by preparing for a mission to the Germany Berlin mission. I hope that those who see me find some measure of the love that Christ has shown me through giving me my countless blessings. I guess you'd have to ask them.

What are Mormon church services like? Are visitors allowed at church meetings? Can I attend church?

Tyler
A typical Mormon Sunday service consists of three, one-hour classes or meetings. The first, called Sacrament Meeting involves the entire ward or branch meeting together in a chapel where available, or anywhere when a chapel is not available. The meeting's primary purpose is to give members and visitors the opportunity to partake of the sacrament. The meeting also involves and opening and closing prayer, a few hymns sung by the congregation, the reading of ward or branch announcements, and two to three talks given by members of the ward, branch or stake. The next meeting, called Sunday School, is split up by age and gospel subject. These classes are offered to anyone of the age of 12 years or older. Subjects include, gospel essentials, gospel doctrine, family history, family relations, and other topics. The last meeting, is split up by gender. Boys and men attend classes in the priesthood according to their age, and girls and women attend young women from the age of 12 to 18, and relief society from 18 on. Visitors are always allowed to any of the meetings no matter what stage of life they're in or how they feel about Christ or the church. Show more Show less
