Hi I'm Tyler

I was born and raised in Mesa Arizona, I'm a swimmer, a brother to four rowdy boys and one sister, and I'm a mormon.

About Me

I was a state swimmer in high school, a junky for being fit and working out, and I graduated in 2013. I spent twelve years of my childhood being forced by my mom to practice to the piano, and to her credit I love to play it. I grew up in a big family of goofball boys (four of them) and one sister. She's the rose among the thorns in my house. I fall right in the middle of the six of us, and have watched my two older brothers go on two year missions for the LDS Church. One of them is married and has a beautiful baby girl with one on the way, and my sister just married this last spring. They inspire me, and give me so much to look forward to in my life. I did one semester of college as I've waited for my own mission call to Tampico Mexico. As i prepare to start that chapter of my life, I've soaked in the time I have with my family and little brothers, and the people I love before I am thrown into the real world.

Why I am a Mormon

There's nothing that brings me more happiness than living the teachings of the gospel. Even though I was born into a Mormon family, I have always been given the opportunity to decide whether I want to follow the Church or not. In times when I have chosen not to live my faith, I have felt a tremendous hole in the happiness and peace in my life that only the gospel of Christ can fill. This is why I choose to give my all to the Savior, and this is why I always will. There is no other alternative to finding true happiness.

How I live my faith

I am the expert at moving boxes for families, folding chairs, and doing yard work for the elderly. The church has given me plenty of opportunities to serve and be selfless with my neighbors and community. Each month without fail I visit five widows in their home to make sure they are ok and have a friend. Each sunday I perform the blessing of the sacrament in the church service for the congregation, go to sunday school, and learn the teachings of Christ. The most important part of being a member to me is being kind to the people around me every day, and doing my best to serve them.
