Hi I'm Tyler John Purcell

I grew up all over Utah. I love sports. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love playing almost every sport. I have 10 brothers and sisters. I am the oldest of them all. I love fixing cars, and working on things with my dad.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love to feel the spirit. I love to be able to be touched by the love of others in the church when they share their personal stories of their conversions or they spiritual feelings in the church. I choose to follow this gospel on my own. I have never been forced to go to church or to go to other types of church activities. I love to be able to teach others about how they can feel of the same spirit and love that I feel everyday living this gospel.

How I live my faith

Once a month I go hometeaching with the 1st counselor in the bishopric. I have been called to be a ward missionary, but just recently got released due to getting my mission call.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Tyler John Purcell
No not all Mormons are required to serve the lord. But for men especially it is very strongly advised to serve. in D&C 4 states "there is a marvelous work about to come forth unto the children of men" Then it states that "any worthy able young man should serve the lord" Show more Show less
