Hi I'm Tyler Hill

Life is an ever changing adventure. The constant in this journey is my Savior, Jesus Christ.

About Me

I recently returned from a 2-year mission in Anchorage, Alaska. I really like trying new things and overcoming weaknesses.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that Christ lives, atoned and suffered for our sins, overcame death, loves me, and wants me to return to live with him forever. I find great happiness in having high moral standards that the church encourages and striving to serve others I know that God is our Heavenly Father, that we are his children, and we have the great gift of prayer to communicate with him. I know he hears and answers our prayers, and our faith grows as we faithfully follow Him. I know that families can be together forever, and there is none left out of that promise if we repent and follow Jesus Christ. I love that knowledge because I love my family, and couldn't bear the thought of being separated from them forever at death. I'm grateful for the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. I know we have a living prophet, Thomas S. Monson, who leads and guides this wonderful church. I know Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, and through him, God's true church is restored today with the proper authority to perform saving ordinances such as baptism. I encourage all those who desire more happiness and joy in their life to sincerely learn more about this church. Pray to know the truth. I know that the Lord will answer you. He has answered me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by tackling adversity. My mission course didn't exactly take me where I expected it to. I entered the missionary training center in Provo, preparing to serve in the Baltic Mission, Estonian speaking. After two tough months of tackling anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorder, I found myself back home on medical leave. Six of the hardest but most sacred months of my life ensued, full of counseling, long talks with parents, and testimony-building. Battling perfectionism, I had to learn to trust the Lord's promise that "though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be white as snow." Forgiving myself for my imperfections and weaknesses became a little easier, and praying for divine strength to overcome mental obstacles became more frequent. The Atonement of Jesus Christ became more than just an act that occurred two millenia ago, but a cherished gift to me that gives me necessary strength each day. In June of 2013, I was blessed to receive the miraculous re-assignment to the Alaska Anchorage Mission. Two days later, I boarded a plane and began the incredible mission experience. I am so grateful to have served the Lord through a full-time mission! Though I'm still battling mental challenges, I feel more and more strength from the Lord each day. Adversity is essential to eternal growth!
