Hi I'm Tyler Howells

I grew up in Smithfield Utah and I race motocross and love to snowmobile. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I live to ride dirtbikes and snowmobiles. I race motocross and ride snowmobiles all winter. Nothing beats boondockin' through powder on a blue sky day on your sled. My family owns a meat packing business, Lower Foods, in Richmond, Utah and I work there. I graduated from Sky View High school and am currently serving a mission in Baltimore, Maryland. After my mission I will attend Utah State University. I love to hunt, fish, waterski, wakeboard, and anything that involves the outdoors.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it brings happiness to the lives of all people. I have been raised in the church and have seen how this gospel helps brighten peoples lives and surround them with love and comfort. I love this church and gospel more than anything and it truly means the world to me. I am so happy that I have the opportunity to share the truthfulness of this church with others. There are many false beliefs about this church and I am here to tell people the truth and bring them closer to Christ.

How I live my faith

I love to help others out by doing service. Hard work is just as important as anything in the church. My favorite thing is to make someones day by helping them out in whatever way I can.

What is being a Mormon like?

Tyler Howells
Being a Mormon is a very joyful experience. We are just normal people who want to be the best we can. We have the knowledge that families can live together forever which brings so much happiness into my life. Many LDS youth serve full time missions for the church where they devote their own time and efforts into bringing people closer to Jesus Christ. We are just normal people with normal interests trying to be the best people we can. Who doesn't want to do that? Show more Show less

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Tyler Howells
Families are so important simply because they give us that support and help that is so essential to get through the day to day grind of life. Friends often come and go but your family will always be that solid foundation that will always be there. Having a family enables us to go through good times and well as bad to help us grow. Nobody wants to go through this life alone and family is that key to making sure we don't and never have to do that. Families also extend beyond this life. By following the commandments of God we can live with our families for eternity. What a treat that is for us! Show more Show less
