Hi I'm Tyler Augenstein

I am a music fanatic, a scientist, a traveler, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

One thing that is very interesting about me is that I was diagnosed with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder when I was only in 1st grade. I have had a hard time with this trial, but overtime and with help from our Heavenly Father I was able to overcome much of the hard times. It is not gone, but I have learned that this trial is for me specifically so that I may learn and grow to where Heavenly Father wants me to be. I go to college at Brigham Young University in Provo Utah. So far I am wanting to major in a scientific field where I may be able to do research and later teach at a university. Right now I am thinking of majoring in Bioinformatics, which is a combination of math, science, and computers. All of which I find facinating. I have two siblings from Ethiopia Africa named Lincoln and Abigail. I actually had the oportunity to go and get them! (I love to travel!) It was an amazing experience! I also hace two other brothers named Josh and Marcus. I have a lot of interests.The biggest one has to be music and to be more specific Musicals. My favorite Musical has to be The Phantom of The Opera. I love to sing and act. I also love to hang with my friends and have fun with them.

Why I am a Mormon

There are many reasons that I am a mormon. One being the light, knowlege, and more importantly truth that comes from my Heavenly Father when I study and pray for guidance and truth. I also love the doctrine of eternal families. I know that I can live with my family, Father in Heaven, and Jesus Christ again. I honestly could not imagine eternity without my family. You may say that is wishful thinking but that is the truth. I am also very grateful for the atonement and the amazing grace that comes from the atonement so that all men may repent of their sins, because man is not perfect. I know that grace cannot be used up. It is a constant source of love and comfort for anyone who wants it, and more importantly Jesus Christ is willing to give it because he loves each and every one of us. These are a few reasons why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Actually right now I am living my faith by being a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am serving in the Orlando Florida mission. I hope and pray that I might be able to bring others unto Christ and help others find the happiness that this restored gospel brings me.

How can we stop the spread and influence of pornography?

Tyler Augenstein
In short there are two things we should do. 1. Teach correct principles in the home 2. Encourage each other to talk about things freely with one another in the home. Things that may be bothering you, questions you may have, etc. I feel that the best way to stop the spread and influence of pornography is to start within the walls of our own homes. One thing that I love about how my parents raised me is that my parents taught me correct principles and encourage me to talk with them about things that worried me, troubled me, just wanting to talk, questions I had or what ever else. They repeatedly came to me and let me know the dangers of pornography and how it destroy's not only you but your family. Knowing that I was encouraged to talk with my parents about anything I had greater courage and knowledge that my parents love me and no matter what I would ask or say or want to talk with them about they would listen and help me through anything that was going on in my life. The same goes for pornography. So I would say that it starts with parents and the home. Although I am not a father yet I am set on doing the same with my children what my parents did with me. It works very very well. For more information on the family I would reccomend reading The Family: A Proclamation to the World Show more Show less
