Hi I'm Tyrel Maughan

I love sports and the outdoors. I love computers. Trying new things is what I like to do. And I am a Mormon.

About Me

I love sports. I have always been playing sports since I was little. Soccer, Basketball, and Ultimate Frisbee are the sports I mostly love. In Soccer, I was the main goalie, and a forward. In Basketball, I never had one certain piston, I was where ever I was needed. With Ultimate Frisbee, I was on my high school Ultimate Frisbee team, and I was a Handler and a Hot Cutter. In the winter time I love to go skiing especially on a powdery day. The outdoors are amazing. My family and I loves camping, hiking and fishing. We sometimes go out for a whole week camping, hiking and fishing, with all of our stuff that we are taking on our backs. I love working with computers. I have taken a few classes using Photoshop and Illustrator. I made a few thing for my high school, and few things for my self. It's a lot of fun. I am not afraid of trying new thing, and I am very out going.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that God, our Eternal Father, lives and that he loves me more than I could comprehend. And I know that Jesus Christ, came down to the earth and lived, suffered and died for me, so that I can live again with him and God. I know that God knows all things and if we are have any question we can turn to him and ask him in pray, just like Joseph Smith after he read James 1:5. And I know that Joseph Smith saw God and his son Jesus Christ, and that through Joseph Smith he restored the church back onto the earth again. I know that families can be together forever. And everyone that has ever lived on this earth you can see again. I also know no matter what you do, you can be forgiven of your sins, and through Jesus Christ you can have peace to your soul. I know that the thing i have said can be hard to believe, but they are true. And you can find out for yourself, to see if the Book of Mormon is true, and is another testament of Jesus Christ, by reading it. I try to read the Book of Mormon every day, and the days that I do, I feel Gods love for me. If you read it with an open heart, you will feel the Holy Ghost. God loves you. And I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

For the past 2 years I have been a Special Needs Youth Counselor for Special Needs Activity Program/Special Needs Mutual. This is where handicapped people 12 years and older come and attend activities every Thursday night for about 2 hours and I help those individuals who have special needs. Both years I was assigned a buddy to work with during that year. I helped my buddies do stuff from, scouting, and a ton of fun and educational activities. This gave the parents of these special needs kids a break from the constant worrisome task of taking care of there kid. I have loved working with these special needs kids and i would do it again if I could. During the 2013-2014 school year I was 1 of 20 members of the Youth Counselor for my stake. As a member of the Council, I attended a Monthly Council Meeting for an hour on the third Sunday of every month. In this meeting we planed upcoming activities, events, firesides, and other Church sponsored activities. I was recently called to serve as a Missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and I will spend the next 2 years serving the lord.
