Hi I'm Ty Ottesen

I am an avid Track runner. I love Ukrainians. Im a brother of 5 boys and no sisters. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Before my Mission i went to college, BYU in Provo, Utah. I am Majoring in Exercise Science and plan to be a PT. I also run Track, i love running and i love health. i run the 800 and when i return from my mission i will train and be an 800 meter runner for the BYU track team. i want to be a Highschool Track coach when i have my own practice as a PT. Im a Local boy and i love being part of a community. Traveling, not my thing.

Why I am a Mormon

Ive seen how much this Gospel has blessed the lives of those i love. Ive seen people fall away from this Gospel and they are not living as happy as they could, this Gospel brings happiness for everyone, its a Gospel made for anyone. Its more than just thinking its right though, ive felt its right, I feel the Spirit when i talk with Heavenly Father. He does listen to my prayers and He does answers them. This is no way that the Book of Mormon could be false. Every reason ive heard from others is made up because of their anger. Anger and Contention is no of God, so i know those reasons are not from these people exactly, but from a different source. Im a Mormon because i know it is the way back to our Father in Heaven, i want to help others see that, and i want others to have the knowledge i have. I know Jesus Christ lives, and has Atoned for all our sins if we come unto Him and repent of our wrong doings. It is a huge blessing in my life to have been born into this Church, Christ's Church. I cannot and will not deny the thruthfulness of this Restored Gospel.

How I live my faith

I read Scriptures every day, including the Bible. I pray and ask for repentance daily, because im not perfect, far from it. Before the mission i would visit Families in the ward with my father and make sure they are doing good and if they need any help. when they needed help we would assist them with joy because it was always fun to serve others with my dad. it has brought me closer to my father. And closer to those families in the ward. As a Priest i would bless the Sacrament almost every Sunday for the Ward. I Strive to live righteously everyday. I would not do anything that would embarass me, my family, or even God. Im trying to be like Jesus, one who never hates, never judges, never speaks vile words, but always loving with understanding, always obiediant with humility, and Always Serving others with the Pure Love of Christ.
