Hi I'm Tyler

I grew up in Arizona, I love music, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I grew up with a love for music. I took choir classes all through out grade school and High School. I play the piano and later made a hobby of piano tuning and repair. I enjoy running and exercise. I took culinary classes in High School and developed a love for cooking.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have personally received an answer for myself that this is Christ's church. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. It gives me guidance and direction when I need answers and when I feel lost. I have a strong testimony of the atonement of Jesus Christ. I know that Christ died for me and each and every one of us so that we can repent of our sins and do better. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and that through the power of the priesthood he translated the Book of Mormon and restored the church to what it is today. I have a testimony of modern day prophets. I know that Thomas S. Monson is our prophet today and that he receives revelation from God to lead and guide this church in the Latter-Days. I am a Mormon. I know it. I live it. I love it!

How I live my faith

I attend church and am a part of a presidency within the ward. I also serve as a ward missionary and a family history consultant. I am now waiting to leave on a mission.

Why are Mormons asked to donate 10% of their income to their Church?

Tyler
When we give ten percent of our income we call it tithing. The church uses tithing to help the church grow, such as the building of meeting houses and temples. The reason to why is because God commands us to. But if you think about it, God created the world we live in and everything in it, including us. There is no way that we could possibly repay him. We are forever indebted to him and all he asks of us is ten percent of our income to help support the church. When you think of it that way, he asks for almost nothing. Ten percent may seem like a lot, but that is the glass is empty side of it. We get to keep ninety percent of it. That seems like a pretty good deal to me. Show more Show less
