About Me

Hi my name is Tyler but people call me Ty. I was born and raised in the LDS church. I have a total of 5 people in my family including me, and i'm the oldest of three kids. I have a Brother who is 14, and a Sister who is 11. I am 18 years old. I am a senior in High school. I love soccer it is my favorite sport. I love to draw, my grandma is a very talented artiest and got me into it. I also love to build and fix things. One day i hope to be an engineer of some kind and combine it with my artistic skills. Recently i have received my mission call to serve in the Lisbon Portugal mission speaking Portuguese. I leave August 20th to the Provo MTC. I am so very excited to go and serve the lord, and to give up 2 of my years to bring back his lost children.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am i a Mormon? i am a Mormon because i know that this is the true church. I know that God is real and he loves us with all his heart each and everyone of us. i know that he has a plan for us and the is the plan of salvation. I have a full testimony of the Book of Mormon. i know that the teachings in that book are true, the prophets and stories in there are true as well. To me reading the scriptures is everything. i can look to them for help and guidance. if any of you have doubts or are struggling with anything i promise you that if you search and ponder the scriptures that you will find the answers you are looking for. In the bible there is a scripture James 1:5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. it also says in the Book of Mormon Moroni 10:3-5 we are instructed that if we read an ponder in our hearts and also ask God in the name of Jesus Christ if it is true that we shall receive an answer through the Holy Ghost. i am a mormon because i know that these things are true the scriptures are true and God the father and Jesus Christ are real and love us very much. i know that through prayer we can talk to god and he will answer us. I am a Mormon and am Proud to say it!!!

How I live my faith

Every Sunday i attend Mission prep just before church. For those who don't know what that is, its a class that future missionary's take to help them prepare for there missions. In the past i have been the deacons secretary and president, teachers secretary and 2nd counselor, and priests secretary and 1st counselor. And pretty soon i will be ordained to be an Elder. Everyday i try to find ways of how i can help people and make them happy. For example i;m walking down the hall in school and i find someone who looks like they are having a bad day i would go up to them and say hi with a big smile on my face and when i do they respond with an even bigger smile and when i see that it puts a good feeling inside of me. Throughout my life i try my best to be more Christlike and through doing so i have noticed that my life and the lives of others have been more happy and filled with joy.
