Hi I'm Tyler Newland

My name is Tyler, I love my mission, I play golf, football, and volleyball. I am the oldest boy in my family. I am a mormon!

About Me

Well... Where do i start with myself? I am 19 years old. I was born March 7th of 1995. I come from a family of 6. I have my Mom and Dad and then 2 older sisters Chelsie and Brittney and a younger brother Trevor. My sisters are both married and i have a nephew named Jaxden. I love my family to death!! Family is the most important thing in my life and i wouldn't give them up for anything. I love to play sports of any kind! My favorites are Football, Volleyball, Golf, and have recently come to love Soccer. I love to watch and play all sports i just love some more than others. I play the piano but very little of it. I am currently learning to how to play it better. I am also teaching myself how to play the guitar. I am a huge people person. I love talking and telling stories about my life and the dumb things i have done. I am a big goof ball!!! I just do dumb things for the fun of it! Life is to be enjoyed and to be loved so i try and live each and everyday to that standard. There is no point to live life and not have fun and not have friends. I love my life and the chance that my father in heaven gives me each and everyday to live and experience the good and bad of life each and every day!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because as I look at my life I realize that all the church asks of us is to live a good clean life. I will never look back on my life and regret not drinking or smoking. I will always love this gospel and the truths it teaches us. I have found that by following what I have been taught that I come to know the truthfulness of this church. I know that Christ is my brother, savior, and best friend. He lives and loves each and everyone of us. I love him and the sacrifice he has made for me. I know that I will always have the opportunity to speak with my father in heaven through prayer and that he will answer me. I am grateful for the prophets and the lessons and insight they add to my life. I know that Joseph Smith is a prophet and that The Book of Mormon is the true word of God. I love this gospel and the blessings it offers me. In the name of Jesus Christ amen.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in so many ways! First and foremost I try to set an example. That is the best way for anyone to really see what i believe and how i do things. I also participate in church callings such as group presidents. I served on the seminary council of my high school my senior year and served as the president. We had the chance to make seminary an enjoyable experience for about 700 youth. The 13 of us became really good friends and enjoyed the same goal of making life fun! I also am serving a mission for 2 years in the great state of TEXAS!!!! It is so fun to come down to south Texas and help the people in whatever way I can and to share the gospel with them! I love this gospel with my whole heart and what better way to show it and live it than to share it? I love to read the scriptures and study and apply them into my life! I have recently found prayer to be a big instrument in my life to help me get through my challenges and hard times! And lastly I LOVE going to church and partaking of the sacrament that has been blessed by the authority of God! It is the best feeling to know that I can receive a forgiveness of my sins every week!
