Hi I'm Tyler Weiss

I grew up in Sandy Utah. I have been a member of the church since May 27th 2010 and I am serving a mission in VA. 12-14.

About Me

I love being a missionary and i love this church. I love playing sports and being outside and I love hanging out with friends. The best days are the ones when you can go outside and just have fun with out any money, to me you dont need money to have the time of your life. I love the snow, music, hiking, and just being happy. I am always a happy person and I like making other people happy as well. the best day of my life is when I found the church of jesus christ of latter-day saints. its was like i have filled a hole i didnt know was there. Before the church i was going down a dark road and with no idea where i was going. I wasnt dealing with the hard times well at all with what i was going thru but then some friends reached out to me. They really showed me the path to the lord. i know that if it wasnt for those girls i wouldnt be where i am today and i am so very greatful for those people in my life that kept pushing me thru it all and helping me. i never could have done it with out all of you.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it wasnt tell I started learning about the church that I knew who I was. I always thought I did but it wasnt tell the missionarys tought me that I really found out. I believe that everyones testimony should be discovered it can not be givin to them. they must go find it. Finding my testimony has been the greatest quest of my life and i will continue it tell I cant any longer. I love this gospel and everything in it. Im a Mormon and im proud of it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith one day at a time. I left my family that i love to go on a mission and help others find the path just as others had helped me find the path. I am in the VA Richmond mission and it is the most rewarding thing i have ever done in this life. I was a home teacher in my home ward before and that too was just a great calling. I am a really open person i love to talk to people about anything and i love making new friends. i live my faith by standing up for whats right in way shape or form. if someone is doing something that you know isnt right and you dont say anything, or someone is making you feel uncomfertable and you dont say anything how can you let them know. i try to feel the holy ghost in my life everyday and i do that by reading my scriptures and praying and doing what i know to be right. i know how hard it can be with friends who are not mormon and maybe dont really care how you feel about it. but those are the times when we really need to stand up for whats right. i love this faith and i love my Heavinly Father and my savior Jesus Christ with all my heart. and I love being a Mormon.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Tyler Weiss
To increase your faith in Jesus Christ you need to pray about it. you need to read about it. in a talk that a man by the name of Jhon bytheway gave he said "they have done studies those who read about Jesus and his teaching acually knew more about Jesus and his teaching. and they also found that the more they read the more they knew." but a great place to look is in Alma 32:28-43 Show more Show less
