Hi I'm Ty Whitaker

I'm a student. I'm an athlete. I'm a missionary. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am currently serving a mission in the Argentina Buenos Aires South Mission. I love hanging out with my friends, going to the beach, and playing sports. My favorite sport is lacrosse. I have to balance school, lacrosse, and a job; but i find ways to have fun in everything.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the gospel of Jesus Christ brings peace and happiness. I can't imagine how lost I would feel without it. It brings a lot of perspective to your life knowing you are a son of God, knowing the sacrifices that were made for you, and knowing where you will go after this life. It give you purpose. Knowing that I'm a son of God and knowing that He sent his son, Jesus Christ, to atone and die for me makes me want to live righteously and make my father in heaven proud. and how great of a blessing is it that if we live the best we can that we will be able to live in happiness with our families again? Also the commandments we are given bring so much happiness to our lives. Some people think that the way we live our lives is very restrictive but they couldn't be more wrong. All of the commandments we have been given only lead to happiness. I have seen the blessing that come from it in my life. I'm so grateful to be a Mormon and I'm so grateful for all of the blessings that have come into my life because of the gospel.

How I live my faith

I have lots of roles I play. I'm a son, a brother, a friend, an athlete, a worker, and a student. With these roles come a lot of opportunity to be an example. I have many friends who are not of my faith but I live how i have been taught to live and people respect me for it. I have had guys from my lacrosse team and people at school come up to me and tell me that they respect me for sticking to my beliefs. I have been blessed with many talents and I believe the purpose for me having them is so that i can stand out and be put in the place where i can be an example to others. It can sometimes be intimidating to stand up for what you believe but it is worth it. I live my faith by standing for whats right.
