Hi I'm Tyson Downs

I grew up in a small farming community in central Washington. My wife and I were recently foster parents for 2.5 years.

About Me

I'm a dad to 5 children, including an intellectually disabled boy, Wesley. I love working out and improving my body. I also compete in bodybuilding. I own a small Utah SEO based company called SEOBulldog. I help small business owners get online by building awesome websites, and then help them get ranked on page 1 in the search engines. (Among many other things!) I love spending time with my family, relaxing, and my calling as a primary teacher. I currently teach the 7-8 year olds.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe in the gospel of Jesus Christ. I believe that I will be saved through the grace of Jesus Christ. He is my Savior and I strive each day to live worthy of being in his presence again. I believe that Joseph Smith was a prophet and spoke truth.

How I live my faith

I teach primary to 7 year olds. I work each day to live the gospel.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Tyson Downs
I believe the best way to increase your faith in Jesus Christ is to get to know him. You get to know him by reading his word (scriptures), following his teachings, and praying to God the Father in Jesus' name. Only once you have come to know him, can you have faith in him, faith that he can heal you, faith that he can make you a better person, faith that he can help you through your struggles, faith that only He can save you. Once you have this knowledge, your love and appreciation for the Savior and his teachings will grow to the point that you can't even begin to express it. This is something that needs to be practiced everyday. Show more Show less
