Hi I'm Tyler Tolman

I'm a missionary in the Virginia Chesapeake Mission, I love playing basketball, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I played basketball and football in high school and I'm currently serving in the Virginia Chesapeake Mission. After my mission, I'm going to attend BYU and I plan on becoming an accountant.

Why I am a Mormon

Both of my parents grew up in the church and they've taught me about the gospel. I'm also a Mormon because I enjoy the blessings that it brings into my life and the lives of those around me. I also have read the Book of Mormon and I have received my own witness that it is true. Because that book is true, I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet, that there is still a prophet on the earth today, and that the Church of Jesus Christ has been established on the earth once again.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to serve others. Right now on my mission, I have the opportunity to serve a lot of people. I also have the priesthood which enables me to give more service to others than I could without it. I try to be a good example to others and help them come closer to Jesus Christ.
