Hi I'm Tyler Lythgoe

I am from California. I love sports. I`m a mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving as a missionary in Tuxtla Gutierrez, Mexico. I have three younger siblings. I love playing sports and helping others. I like joking around and making others laugh. I am from Southern California.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have come to know this is true. I have read the Book of Mormon several times and asked God if it is true. Not only did he answer my prayer but He has helped me seen the truthfulness and power of this book of scripture a number of times in my life. I have been able to see how the Book of Mormon has helped me draw closer to God and improve and change my own life. Also, I have seen how the Book of Mormon leads to the conversion in the lives of others. Secondly, I know that the Mormon church has the Priesthood authority of God. I have seen blessings heal people and have felt the personal blessings of this in my life. I know that God answers prayers through prophets and apostles and the Book of Mormon.

How I live my faith

I am currently living my faith by serving as a missionary, but I also live my faith by striving to be completely obedient day by day and applying the Atonement always in my life.

What is being a Mormon like?

Tyler Lythgoe
Happiness. Many people say that mormons have too many "rules" when we really have been blessed with commandments from God that allow us to receive blessings here on earth and to be happy. God has blessed us with agency to choose how we live but we are taught the importance and the blessings that come from obedience. We can truly find happiness in this life and prepare ourselves for eternal happiness if we are obedient to the commandments. Show more Show less

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Tyler Lythgoe
Missionaries share a message that helps people come unto Christ. They teach how God restored the true church of Christ by calling another prophet. The Church of Jesus Christ and His authority were lost but this same authority was restored to the Earth. They teach how a prophet of God helps us understand God´s plan of happiness and what we need to do to prepare ourselves to be worthy to live with our Heavenly Father again. Show more Show less

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Tyler Lythgoe
The Book of Mormon was written by prophets of God who lived in the ancient Americas. A prophet of God is a special witness of Jesus Christ, therefore the Book of Mormon testifies and teaches of Jesus Christ. These prophets, chosen by God, wrote what God commanded them to help us gain a testimony of our Savior Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
