Hi I'm Tucker
I grown though disabilities, I'm a college student, slackliner, skier, and future author. most important I'm a mormon.
I was born with a speech impediment, and although it was fixed through sugary at the age of 8 it hid what some might call the real problem. during my education i was always behind other students in reading and spelling, yet for the longest time everyone always supposed that it was because of my speech impediment and that one day i would catch up. when i reached the end of the 8th grade, i was required to take various test to proceed on to high school. My scores in reading and spelling were not high enough for me to move on, so we found some one to tutor me before the final tests. this tutor was the first to ever think i was dyslexic, and she pushed to have me tested. The tests were conclusive and that was the first time i believed i was dyslexic. That troubled me for quite some time. I the kind of person that likes to fix things, and to me dyslexia was a problem that I couldn't solve. I soon figured out that even though i could fix the problem. I could make it look as though it wasn't there. so i work extra hard in spelling and in reading, this resulted in me receiving acceptance in to college of my choice because of my high test score which included reading and spelling.
Why I am a Mormon
I´m mormon because, there isnt anything else that brings me the same amount of joy. i know its true, for something this wonderful could not have been made up. I have tried other things, but this church and abiding by the things that it teaches is the only thing that has brought me this much joy. pure joy.
How I live my faith
Growing up in the church, I have had a lot of time to experience things form the ground up. I have never had a astonishing spritual experiance that i can think of, but when I ask myself if i know that the church is true, i can aways say yes. my conviction over the years has grown alot, and i feel my testiononey grow every time i share it.
