Hi I'm Tyrel

I was born and raised in Idaho. I grew up in a reactivating family. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I really like to read fantasy books and enjoy playing video games with my friends. I love to listen to all kinds of rock like alternative, punk, and even the old stuff. I'm a logical thinker so I take my time when I see challenges. I would really like to go into some field of engineering when I go to school. I have 2 younger siblings and they get me going sometimes but I love them a lot. A lot of my friends are not members of my faith so I get to see things from their perspective which helps me a lot.

Why I am a Mormon

I have had many personal experiences that have strengthened my faith and have discovered for myself that the LDS church is the true church of God. I prayed for help in my times of need and to know if what I am being taught is true even if it is personally challenging to accept. I kept an open heart and mind when asking these questions and have received answer even if they weren't what I was expecting. I have a testimony in the power of love and friendship and the effects they can have. I know that every commandment that God has given us is for our own good. They all help us and never hinder. I have witnessed miracles before my own eyes. Granted they weren't miraculous like something that happens in the scriptures but I could recognize them for what they were.

How I live my faith

I was a ward missionary while I was in my home ward and I went to less active people to invite them to church and friend them. I was suppose to go with full-time missionaries to investigators but wasn't able to due to the timing and my work. I am currently serving a mission in Mississippi.
