Hi I'm Tyler Bell

I run cross country and play soccer for AF High School. I live in Utah. I work at a long term care center. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I come from a family of ten kids and 25 nieces and nephews. I love them more than anything else in the world! I run cross country and play soccer very competitively. I always feel dead after Cross Country practice, but nothing gives me more satisfaction than winning a race or knowing that I'm better than I was. I work at a long term care center. Assisting the elderly is a very interesting experience. Every day there's at least one of them that gets mad or is in a bad mood for something that happened, but i would not trade the experiences I have gained for almost anything. The Christ like love I feel for these people through serving them is unfathomable. It's amazing. While I love soccer, skiing, wakeboarding and spending time with my friends, I am never happier than when I am with my family. I have 25 nieces and nephews and all family get togethers are parties to remember! I love them so much. We are all extremely competitive with our board games, but at least one person is always smiling at the end: the winner. I can't even explain the eternal happiness they bring me.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is true. My testimony of the Atonement and Plan of salvation is strengthened every day. This is the only church that offers a plan that makes absolute sense, not only logically but also emotionally. God loves us and one day we can return to Him and be like Him. Christ is our elder brother, Saviour and Redeemer. Through Him we can become perfect and be cleansed from our sins. The gospel makes people better, and I know through it I can progress through the eternities and so can you.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by actively seeking others who need help. There is no better way to live the gospel and get to know Christ than by serving others. And there is no better way to serve others than to be an example of light and love. Share the gospel, bear your testimony often, and truly try to make everybody you meet feel loved. I will soon be on a mission in Bolivia and I know that if I stay worthy, Christ will bless the Bolivian's lives through me. Sometimes living the gospel and staying worthy can be hard. But once you create a relationship with the spirit , you'll never ever want to go back! Living the gospel requires active participation, but its not a chore, it's a blessing!
