Hi I'm Tyler

I grew up in Utah. I love flaming hot cheetos, pickles, and Chinese food. I went to SUU. I love mountain biking, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Utah. Before leaving for my full-time mission I was a student as Southern Utah University. I worked as a lifeguard for two summers and I am a certified Medical Assistant and worked in a surgeon's office for awhile. I like watching movies with popcorn. I love all kinds of sports. I love going to snogression and doing tricks into the foam pits. My favorite thing to do on a summer day is to go mountain biking and play basketball. I also enjoy shotgun shooting out in the desert. Spending time outside is the best!

Why I am a Mormon

I was very fortunate to have been born into a family that has a belief in Jesus Christ. Because of my beliefs I know who I really am, where I came from, and where I am going. Because of what I have come to know I have found my purpose in life and how to become the most happy. Through my own personal studying of the book of mormon and personal prayer, I have come to understand the purpose of life which has given me the strength to overcome anything that might challenge me. My life isn't perfect, but I know that I don't have to be perfect. I only have to try my best to be the best person I can be and know that all my imperfections will be made up for. I know that even if we mess up, the Lord will always forgive us if we come unto Him through the atonement of Jesus Christ. I know that as I try to live after the example of my Savior, that I will someday become the man that I was created to be.This gospel brings me closer to my Savior Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father. That is the most important thing to me in my life. Jesus Christ Lives. I know this with all my heart. I am a Mormon because of the hope that it gives to me. I have hope because of the understanding that families can be together forever. I have hope because I know that God directs my paths. I have hope because I know if I show my faith, I will be blessed more than I can even imagine. That hope is worth living for.

How I live my faith

I am a firm believer in Jesus Christ. I have come to know the importance of his role in my life and what he has done for me. I do my best to emulate his example and follow in his footsteps. I know that God loves me and that he wants the best for me just like my parents do. I know that I owe Him everything and more, and that is the reason why I have chosen to serve him full-time for these two years and to continue to do my part once I return home. My faith only grows when I am willing to act on the things that God has commanded me to do. I love my Savior Jesus Christ and my Father in heaven. Because my faith is my core reason for everything I do, it is difficult to say how I live my faith different from how I live, but I live my faith by using my talents and abilities and by being available to bless the lives of people around me.

What is faith?

Faith to me is trusting in God and putting His will before my own. It is gained as we act. Show more Show less
