Hi I'm Tyrel

I grew up in Utah. I got my Eagle scout when I was 13. I play Rugby. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love sports. All kinds of sports. I've played football, baseball, soccer, basketball, rugby, and I have been learning some lacrosse. Rugby is probably my favorite sport to play, but I really love watching all sports. I just got done going to my first year of college and it was a lot of fun. I learned a lot about who I am and how to live on my own, oh and of course I learned the basic school stuff as well. I want to go to school to get a degree in criminal justice and eventually become a cop. That is the dream. Now that school is over though, I am going on a mission and I am super excited! When I get home I plan to finish school, get married and start a career.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was six years old my family didn't go to church at all. I remember making a friend in my kindergarten class named Brayden. Brayden and I played all the time, but he could never play on Sundays because he went to church. Well I wanted to see Brayden on Sundays so he told me to go to church with him. I started going, but I only knew Brayden and I felt uncomfortable so I started begging my mom to go with me. Eventually she started going and then we dragged my little brother a log as well. My dad was the only one that wasn't going. Braydens dad and my dad became friends as well and soon he got my dad to go to church. Finally our family was all going to church and when I turned eight my dad was able to baptize me. Later on we got sealed as a family in the Salt Lake Temple and we will be together forever.

How I live my faith

I particiapted in our community when I was younger mostly through scouting. I did so many service projects that I can't even count them all. It is really cool to drive through town and look at all the things I've done and see how much joy it brings to people. When I was in college I did hometeaching. Down at school hometeaching was a big event. It was one of my favorite things to go do. We home taught a bunch of girls in our ward and they looked forwad every month to us coming over. We helped with everything, whether it be fixing a water heater to killing a spider in the middle of the day. I miss those hometeaching discussions. They were a lot of fun.
