Hi I'm Mose Tillett

I was born in Logan Utah. I've traveled most of Europe. I love puzzles, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I absolutely LOVE puzzles! Any kind will interest me, but I particularly enjoy Rubik's Cubes. I'm also fascinated by computers and software design. I've practiced Java, Flash, and HTML in hopes that I may join the game-making industry one day. I also like videogames like Minecraft and Super Mario, especially when I get to play with my brother. Once my brain gets tired and the time comes to put the controller down, I turn to drawing. In short, if it makes me think, if it's bright and cheery, if it allows me to create, I enjoy it.

Why I am a Mormon

I suppose the reason why I started being a Mormon was because of my family. My dad always placed family first, and my mom led the house with love and care. We went to church every Sunday, we would read the scriptures (almost) every night, and we had Family Home evening every Monday. Church was always an answer for me. Why are we here? Because God put us here. Where are we going to go? Back to live with him. These truths have stuck with me, but the main reason that I stayed Mormon is because of what I learned when I lived the Gospel. It wasn't just one experience, but something here, and something there. One day on a campout, I decided to pray to ask if God was there. I remember just feeling happier. Another time, I got into bed after a long night trying to cram for a project that I had put off for too long. I prayed that I could get the work done, that I could just let myself calm down enough to sleep that night. My heart stopped racing, my mind was clear, and I slept peacefully until the morning. I haven't had a life-changing experience, nor have I been miraculously healed from a priesthood blessing, but I have felt the cleansing power of the Atonement through repentance. I have repeatedly felt the peace in mind and spirit that only God can give.

How I live my faith

Overall, I try to be a kind, helpful person. Whenever I arrive early to church (which is often), I'll help set out chairs or prepare the chapel for services. Frequently, I've served in leadership positions among the young men in my ward. When I'm serving as a leader, I try to keep my friends and fellow members "in the loop" about the activities planned and what needs to be done. In the community, I serve as a Boy Scout. I live the standard to "keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally strait" and continually strive to fulfill my Duty to God and my country. In my academics, I treat my classmates and associates with kindness and respect. I always try to lend a helping hand. I never fight. I try to understand others' perspectives, to live a life that reflects Christ's kindness. When I come home and the day is done, I read my scriptures, I pray with my family, and I tell Heavenly Father just how glad I am that I get to live in this day and age.
