Hi I'm Tyler

I grew up in Ephraim Utah, I love sports, own a sports store, and volunteer coaching youth every season of any sport.

About Me

I grew up a small town boy attending the LDS church. My dad was sent to Iraq back in 2003 and our family became inactive. Although my family is still inactive I have chosen to serve a mission, I'm leaving January 30th to the Seattle Washington mission. I've grown up playing sports my whole life, my favorite being in this order: Football, basketball, baseball, track & field. My parents bought the local sports store and I immediately became the Manager of it. I did attend my first year of college at Snow College last semester (fall 2012) taking classes morning and night, working at the store, and also coaching youth sports teams (football, flag football, basketball, baseball) I have kept a busy schedule so far and now im ready to serve a full time mission. I am very excited to put my daily skills into a mission to serve the lord and help as many people as I can.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church but it wasn't until my senior year of high school until I "really" wanted to be more active in the church. I had based my whole life entirely on football, very stubborn kid when it came to going to church and being active in other things around the communitee. Before the football season had even started my senior year I was rank the top in my position in the state, I had then played my first game and it was the best game of my life. Four days after that I had broke my ankle, it spiraled all the way up my lower leg. Just like that I was done with football, something i had dedicated my whole life too, its gone, no more college football me for. I fell into a deep, deep depression almost failing out of high school. But I had a friend who invited me to go to seminary with her, from there my life took off. I found out there's more too life then what your expiriencing right now, I graduated high school with flying colors, I ran the sports store, I came back to the high school and helped coach, I also coach a middle school tackle team, following up my coaching a youth flag football team. With doing so, I was attending church every weekend and seeing my bishop on a regular basis, things were starting to work out slowely but surely. I promise you my life didn"'t turn around with the snap of a finger, I can only type so much, but I can say this, it wasn't easy but it did turn out in the long run. I will be serving a full time mission in Seattle Washington, and it's been a long time sense i've felt this confident with myself. I don't believe the church and god has done every single thing for me, what I do believe is god gave me something to fall on, and someone or something to push me back up. The church is my foundation, and gives me inpiration. Giving me the want to inspire people every day as much as I can. I am proud to be a mormom, I am proud of my testimony/story, and I would love to share it with anyone who gives me the chance.

How I live my faith

My faith has a very strong connection to what I have previously written. I am very active with the communitee, I don't usually just focus on church activities, I focus more and everyone. Mormom or non-mormom I want to help, and that alone helps me with gaining faith. Learning to not judge people and just help no matter their religion, skin color, or family relations. I love organizing youth groups, that is my absolute favorite, and this all connects because I believe that if you can be an outstanding person outside of the church as well as inside then people will follow your example, hopefully becoming a full time missionary people will want to follow my influence, and I also hope I have accomplished showing people what the church is really about. I have great intentions to learn as much as possible and then share it with the rest of the world.
