Hi I'm Tyler Langford

I love Basketball, Jesus, Missionary work, and Taco Bell.

About Me

Im from Boise Idaho! I love basketball, it brings me so much joy and happiness. I could probably play basketball all day long! I love my family!I have a younger brother who I am really close with. I love my best friends Rigby Butikofer and Jacob Larson, and Nick Hawes. Right now I am on a mission in the Greatest place on earth! Kentucky! Go CARDS!!!

Why I am a Mormon

I didn't want to believe in something just because my parents or Bishop did, so I put this Church, this Gospel, and its foundation to the test. I read the Book of Mormon, the keystone of our faith, and prayed about it for a number of weeks. One night after praying I was overcome with a comforting, peaceful feeling that is difficult to describe as it was the "peace of God, which passeth all understanding" (Philippians 4:7). I knew then that the Book of Mormon was true and that subsequently Joseph Smith was a prophet called by God to restore original truths that had been lost or altered. I knew that through Joseph Smith Christ's true Church with all of the correct doctrine and blessings that the Savior taught and offers was reestablished on the earth. From that point on I've always known and will never be able to deny that these things are true. I stand as a witness that God does answer prayers, that He has once again reached out in love to us His children by calling prophets to lead and guide us as He has always done in Biblical times. His words nor his works never cease. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. If anyone wants to know the truth that I and millions of others have come to know, they need only "ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost" (Moroni 10:4).

How I live my faith

Right now I am a full-time missionary. As a missionary I am a representative of Jesus Christ and am serving the Lord by serving others, trying to bring those that need Him in their lives to the knowledge that He lives and loves each one of us very dearly. There are many people who don't know that they have a loving Heavenly Father and Savior Jesus Christ who wants them to be happy and find peace in this life. Many do not know their purpose in life and that God has a plan for each of us individually. They are alone, lost, depressed, and suffering all kinds of emotional and physical distresses and ailments. They do not know that they can use the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ to help them in all things, not just when they make mistakes or sin. The Atonement is infinite, and He is all loving and caring. That is the best part about the Gospel of Jesus Christ as taught and found in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
