Hi I'm Tyler

I make movies, I'm a gamer, I like ponies, and you guessed it! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love computers, technology in general. I'm a gamer, I play lots of games with friends. I'm a internet junkie, and well I'm happy with that! Ponies and Bowties are cool. I'm studying computer engineering and I like to direct films and edit them as well, typically shorts ranging from 5-20 minutes. I'm into improv and I've been at it for almost a year and been in about 23 shows. I'm a certified Open Water Certified Scuba Diver. And....House Music (^-^)

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon, because I have come to know that we are all different. My hobbies are different from the guy down the street's hobbies. My lifestyle is different that the person who gives me my infinite soft drink refills at the local restaurant. But yet through it all, even though I may be considered, "different" that I may not blend in with the crowd, that I may be the "odd one out", I can always find comfort in my faith that there is a God that knows and loves me on a Father/Son level of understanding. That as long as I try my best, that's good enough for Him, and if I stumble, he praises every effort no matter how small or insignificant as it may seem. It took me quite a long time to realize. For a period in my life I felt like I was in an emotional pit, but my faith in Jesus Christ has helped me more than words from other sources could ever have. Why am I a Mormon? Because I feel loved by God, rather I know God loves me, and because of this faith, I can say that confidently, and now, I'm happy to breathe, I'm happy to be somebody, I'm happy to be a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Living my faith everyday involves me just knowing that I can always get back up and keep on going is one of the greatest gifts ever. Going out everyday and just being an example of what I live, being happy and just ready to conquer each day. Yeah, it's hard sometimes and being 100% happy 100% of the time is hard but always trying my best to make it back there is great, and people really notice how you live your faith. Just remembering that and helping others know that they can get up in life and dust themselves off is just the greatest way I've found to live my faith. Sharing the love you feel is like spreading a cold: when you come in contact with others it spreads all over the place!

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Tyler
The Missionaries have a purpose to invite others to come unto Christ, through faith in Jesus Christ and his Atonement, Repentance, Baptism, Receiving the Gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end. If you invite the missionaries to teach you, they will teach about Jesus Christ and the restoration of His church, our Heavenly Father's Plan of Salvation so that we may return to Him, Commandments, and other things amonst these. Be prepared though, for missionaries are known to extend commitments and invitations to follow Jesus Christ. Show more Show less

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Tyler
One of the biggest things that tell me there is a God, is the love that I feel from other people. When you see someone struggling to grab something on a high shelf at a market, and somebody whom that person doesn't know, just reaches up and gives it to that person, then disappears as quickly as they appeared, not wanting any earthly recognition, doesn't something inside you say, "Something is right with this picture". I hear a lot of people say God is Good; But when I experience small moments like that, or stare into the broad night sky projecting billions upon billions of stars in the distance, I think to myself, "God is Incredible, and God is Love" All one really has to do to begin to come to know that there is a God is to just stand still for a moment, to breathe, and just look around you. All things testify of God. Show more Show less
