Hi I'm Tyler

I'm a missionary, I serve in Iowa, and I'm a mormon.

About Me

Basically, I love to be adventurous! I love to hike and be out doors and to do things like mountain bike. I love to learn knew things and to challenge my self, mentally and physically. I enjoy being with my friends and family just to talk or do something as simple as watching a movie. I enjoy playing any number of sports, even if I'm not very good at them. I find it entertaining to try new things and to meet new people even though I might be scared at first. I'm a Missionary!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know, without doubt, that this is Jesus Christ's Church on the earth again today. My knowledge didn't come all at once. I had to work hard for it. For some, it just comes. But for me it came by waking up every morning and reading The Bible and The Book Of Mormon. If I wasn't in a rush I felt peace and clarity while I read. I didn't understand everything, but these are the feelings I had. I also felt this while I prayed. It wasn't a feeling of fireworks or anything crazy but it was undeniably from God. Just complete "content-ness" that is the only way I can describe it. As I gained this knowledge I knew more and more that I needed to ask for forgiveness for my sins. So I did, even though I felt so guilty and helpless. I did and I felt as if I had a thousand pounds lifted off my shoulder's. I couldn't help but smile! Words cannot describe how happy I was and still am! Because of this I know that anyone can change. No matter what. God is anxious to help every single soul. I could explain for pages and pages why I am a Mormon. But that won't change you, you might learn some knew things that could help you in your life but the only way it can change you is if you apply that knowledge. My invitation to you is to Invite the missionaries over. Consider their message. Obtain a Book of Mormon and read and pray about it. Find out for yourself if it is from God. "Apply it" and live it. If you know this, you know without any doubts that this Is Jesus Christs Church. Then you know why your here on this Earth. You have a Prophet to look to and trust completely. You know there is so much more than just this live. I know this is true. That's why I'm sharing it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by embracing Christ in everything I do. I pray to Heavenly Father multiple times a day to get the help and the strength I need to be more like him and follow his example. I get to know Him by reading his words that He speaks through prophets. I do this by reading the Bible and the Book Of Mormon everyday to get a better knowledge of His doctrine and to better understand his nature. I go to Church to partake of the sacrament. This is a way of me making a promise with God, every week, to follow him and remember him. It's a time to ponder what Jesus Christ did for me. Its a time that I know I can repent and get a fresh start, every time. I also learn from others and get to feel of the Spirit, or the Holy Ghost, which tailors to me personally feelings of comfort and consolation. The biggest thing right now is I get to serve a mission or a two year service to proselyte His message to everyone! I enjoy it, despite being away from family and friends for a short period of time.
