Hi I'm Tyler O'Bagy

I love basketball. I love to talk too much. I served in the Scotland/Ireland mission and loved it. I'm a mormon

About Me

I was born and raised in the state of Utah, though living in several different cities between the north and south of the state. I have five members in my family: a mom, dad, a little sister, a little brother and myself. I love them to bits! I have also been lucky to live near some of my other family members and it's a great laugh having us all together, it feels like I have far more siblings than I actually do! I am nothing out of the ordinary but I absolutely love speaking to people and the sport of basketball! I have a group of friends who were older than me and far more coordinated and athletic, but luckily for myself they invited me up to play a game of basketball and I was able to play it over and over and now I can at least play it without embarrassing myself too badly! I just love to play basketball and it is by far my favorite hobby! I also love debating, theater, baking, eating (especially baked goods!), reading, hiking the mountains, going skiing, or just chilling out with friends and family!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I could not imagine living my life without the knowledge and faith that I would be able to with my family again after this life. I know that Heavenly Father has a plan for all of us and part of that is never being separated from one another because of the Atonement of Jesus Christ. I also love being a Mormon for the reason that being a part of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is like being part of one massive family; a brotherhood of man! It's amazing how many friends I have made that share my beliefs and I have been able to grow spiritually from their example! I know that Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior; that through him and of him, everything we have has been brought to pass. I know that God has a plan for me and that I am His son capable of becoming like Him and living with him again. I know that I will see my family again after we pass away and that we will be together for eternity. I know that we have a living prophet on the Earth that leads and guides us closer to Christ! I know the Bible and the Book of Mormon to be the word of God and feel such a strong spirit when I open them and read their inspired words!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by living what I believe! I do my best to serve others as I go about doing whatever it is I do for the day and follow the example that Jesus Christ set while he was on the earth. I also am currently serving a mission in Scotland/Ireland and absolutely loving it! I have dedicated two years of my life to serve my Heavenly Father and do my best to help others to come unto Him and Jesus Christ! I have seen so many blessings of being one of His missionaries and helping to spread the word as His disciples did!
