Hi I'm Tyler

I am from Lehi, Utah. I am a missionary in Rochester New York. I love the outdoors. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I love the outdoors. I especially love hunting and fishing. I have grown up hunting and it is one of my favorite things to do. I also enjoy camping, four wheeling, and playing sports. I like to play basketball and baseball the most though. I am now a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints and have been for over a year and a half. My mission has blessed my life in to many ways to count. It has been such a great blessing in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a Mormon. Both of my parents are active members of the church and when I was younger, I guess I just went because that's what we did on Sunday whether I wanted to or not. As I got older though, I started to develop a testimony of my own, and pretty soon I wanted to go to church every Sunday because I was learning something every week and was loving it! I have chosen to stay with the church and go out and serve a mission for this church because I know it to be true. I know that Joseph Smith translated the book of Mormon and I know that it is true. I know that Thomas S. Monson is our living prophet today. I also know that serving a mission is the right thing for me to do and that I was called to the Rochester New York mission for a reason and that that is where the Lord has need of me.

How I live my faith

As a missionary for the church we go around all day everyday and invite everyone that we meet to come unto Christ. I do this because I love the Lord and because this gospel has blessed my life immensely. I wouldn't be nearly the person that I am today if it wasn't for this church and this gospel. So I live my faith by always striving to give my will to Heavenly Father and do what He would have me do. I strive to develop charity and love all those around me by serving them and doing anything that I can to help. My parents taught me from a really young age that it is very important to serve those around us, especially those we love. So that is what I try to do.
