Hi I'm Elder Tyler McCarthy

I am the first missionary from my family, I am from New York, I snowboard, I am an Elder in the Utah Salt Lake City South Mission.

About Me

I'm the only Mormon from my graduating class and most of my family. I was born in Vermont and moved to New York. Currently I am serving a mission in the Utah Salt Lake City South Mission as the first member in my family to ever serve. I hope to pioneer generations of missionaries. I snowboard, mostly with NeverSummer. I love music and art. I am going to school at BYU-I after my mission to study Industrial Design with a minor in Mechanical Engineering. I love to race. I hope to have a Mazda 3 Hatchback S. I am a total bum and pretty easy-going. I love the Gospel and hope to save the world.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I received a witness from the Holy Ghost (God's messenger) that this is the path I am supposed to take. With that witness, I can never go back. I can never deny my faith. It has blessed my life in ways incomprehensible. I have knowledge that gives me direction. I have purpose in God's Plan. Now, I have to share it. I would be very selfish if I didn't share with people how great and marvelous the "good news" is.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being dedicated to the Lord. Christ has many things in store for us, it is our job to succumb to the fate we have and to just help as much as we can in doing the Lord's work. We also have to remember it is His work, not ours. Anything we say or do, is representing Him.
