Hi I'm Tyler

Born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. I love baseball, music, and life and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I graduated high school in the spring of 2014. I love playing sports with family and friends but I especially love baseball, which I played in high school for three years. I am the youngest of three kids, I have an older brother and an older sister that are twins and also my best friends. I love listening to music and enjoy playing the guitar and ukulele for fun.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church and was baptized at age 8. I gained a knowledge of the gospel as a child but my testimony wasn't fully there. As I got older I decided I truly needed to find out for myself if the church was true. I began to invest myself fully into church activities, Sunday school classes, and especially seminary. As I did this I felt an indescribable happiness that I knew was not capable of feeling without a God, and without our savior, Jesus Christ. Being part of this faith has brought me and my family so much joy. I am a Mormon because I know what it is like to feel lost and confused and by living the standards and commandments of our church the feelings of confusion and sorrow have been replaced with feelings of love, purpose, and joy that I know will last for eternity.

How I live my faith

I enjoy and really look forward to going to church each week because of the welcoming spirit and smiles of neighbors, friends, and ward members. I am very grateful for my priesthood responsibilities and duties. I visit members of my ward monthly by home teaching and it is always a pleasure to see how the spirit uplifts other members through the words of the prophets. I will soon be leaving to serve a mission in the Cebu, Philippines mission and I can not wait to teach others of Jesus Christ, our Heavenly Father, and other comforting principles.
