Hi I'm Tyler B

I'm from Arizona. I am a son, grandson, brother, friend, and missionary. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am 19 years old. I am the second child of six in my family. I have an older sister and four younger brothers. I grew up in the White Mountains of Arizona and enjoyed spending time outdoors. I enjoy creating pepurka and have created several life sized Halo armor/weapon items. I am currently serving a two year mission in the Rapid City, South Dakota mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because after a long period of time of making wrong choices I felt I needed a major change in my life and that I needed to have my Heavenly Father in my life. But after such choices I didn't feel like I could be forgiven. But as I read the Book of Mormon and I prayed with all my heart to my Heavenly Father for help I noticed a big change in my life. And after I knew that the Book of Mormon was true I and I fully repented of my wrong doings I was desirous that all might feel the joy that comes from the Restored chuch. I know that my Heavenly Father is real, That my Savior, Jesus Christ, is the Son of The Livning God and that he died for each one of us. I know that He lives now and that He has again reached out to each of us in love by Restoring His Church to the Earth and calling a living prophet to lead and guide us at this time. I testify that Thomas S. Monson is that prophet and that if we listen to the prophets we can live with our Heavenly Father and our Earthly Families once again after this life. And that all this is made possible by the love and mercy of God. And I invite all who read this to read the Book of Mormon and ask our Heavenly Father if it is true and that He will answer you.

How I live my faith

I start every morning with a prayer and an hour of study from the scriptures. I do my best to live a christ-like life. I spend a good chunk of my time off work doing service for other people such as yard work for the elderly.

Why was a Restoration of the Gospel needed? Haven’t we always had the Bible?

Tyler B
A restoration was needed because after the deaths of Jesus Christ and His Apostles the authority to act in God's name was lost from the Earth. Without this authority many changes were made to His church. And from these changes people realized some thing was wrong and protested against the church at that time and tried to reform His original church. But without a prophet and without that authority on the Earth Christ church couldn't exist. As that power and authority was lost a Restoration of that power and that authority would need to take place. But with centeries without a prophet doubt, misinformation and disbielf were common. To help the people know that He had called a Prophet He reveald an ancient volume of scripture comparable to the Bible. And had his Prophet translate this book of Scripture to show to the world He had indeed called another prophet. You can know this is true for yourself by reading the Book of Mormon and asking our Heavenly Father if it is true. And I invite you to do so. Show more Show less
