Hi I'm Tyler

I love to play sports (Football and Baseball)! And love snowboarding. I am called to the Barcelona, Spain Mission. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am an 18 year old. I will be serving a mission to Barcelona, Spain:) I love all athletic events! My hobbies are playing sports and snowboarding. My favorite sports are baseball and football. I have received all-state honors in football as a defensive back! I love camping and watching the tv series M*A*S*H :)

Why I am a Mormon

I was blessed to be born into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I love knowing that my family can be together forever. I have acquired my own testimony of this gospel. I know that Jesus is the Christ and that he atoned for my sins along with your sins. And through his atonement we can be forgiven of our sins. I know that Joseph Smith restored the gospel and that we have a living Prophet today in Thomas S. Monson. I love this gospel.

How I live my faith

I regularly give service to elderly community members who are in need. It's a great blessing to serve those who need help. I love serving and assisting youth with special needs in my school and in seminary classes. I show good sportsmanship in athletic events and try to be a good example.

Who was Joseph Smith?

Tyler
He was the man who restored our gospel. The true church died off after the savior, Jesus Christ, was crucified. When Joseph was 14 years old he was wanting to know which of the many churches was the true one and the one that he needed to attend. His parents both had different religions so Joseph was confused. He one day, when reading the Bible, came across the scripture James 1:5. After reading this scripture Joseph went to a peaceful place, a grove of trees, and got down on his knees to pray. He prayed to know which of the churches was the right one. The Father and The Son (Heavenly Father and Jesus) appeared to him and restored the Priesthood. The Priesthood is the same power by which the Heaven and the Earth was made. This same power can be given to worthy men in the church. Joseph Smith was then ordained the first Prophet of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. He was killed later killed in Carthage, Illinois along with his brother because of their beliefs.
