Hi I'm Tyler Petersen

I grew up in Utah. I have just received my mission call to Georgia. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am big into music. It is a huge part of my life. I listen to it all the time and I make music whenever I can. I really like inspiring lyrics in a heavy metal scene. I love to play guitar and write.

Why I am a Mormon

There is a time in everyone's life when you ask the questions, "Where did I come from?" "Where am I going?" "Why am I here?" I am a Mormon because it answers those questions for me. I know that I lived in a past life with my father in heaven. I know that I had to come to earth to gain a body and become more like my father in heaven. I know that when I die it's not over. It's only a another step to becoming perfect. I know that family members and friends that have died, are not gone forever. I know that I will see them again. I am Mormon because it gives me hope and hope keeps me going.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through attending church regularly. It is very important to not only attend church meeting but to open your mind and heart and allow yourself to feel the spirit and become spiritually fed. I always read my scriptures and pray frequently. It is important to keep the spirit in your life constantly and have it as a constant companionship. Always ask questions and have a desire to learn more. It is one thing to be told something but it is completely different to feel it and know it for yourself. In order to grow spiritual you need to pray, study, and learn for yourself and there is always help along the way.
