Hi I'm Tyler Jackson

I grew up in Provo and Salem Utah. I love computers and electronics. I'm currently serving a two year mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the oldest of 5 boys. I love electronics (computers, cameras, video cameras, Gameboys, consoles, etc.) I am completely obsessed with the color orange, I have an orange watch, my room is orange, and I have probably about 10 orange shirts, I just love the color. I am currently serving a full time mission in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Why I am a Mormon

This is god's true church, the one god dwells in. It's as simple as that. God is real, and this is his church, here I feel safe, loved, protected, and cared as an individual. when I was smaller I was walking home one day, when a dog ran right up to me and started barking and growling and generally making me pee my pants. The dog's owners weren't too far in away, in their yard, but hadn't noticed what was happening. I tried to call out to them, but the words got caught in my throat. I tried again, and again I couldn't get them out. I said a little prayer in my heart that god would help me call to them and help me be safe. Afterwards I tried calling to them again and my voice carried easily to them, they came running over, got their dog, and apologized. I know It was because of that prayer that I was helped, and I know god loves me and cares about me, and he knows what's right. I'm glad I'm in his true church and can experience all his blessings.

How I live my faith

I have served as a district leader at the Missionary Training Center, which means I watch over and guide my district (A district is a group of about 12 people). I also served as an assistant to my bishop, and helped him make assignments and watch over the youth of the ward. I have earned my eagle scout, the service project I did was installing sprinklers at the park, so they could have grass.
