Hi I'm Tyler

Hi, i'm Tyler. I love sports such as tennis and baseball, my family, and the gospel. I love the Red Sox and anything BYU.

About Me

My name is Tyler and I live in Utah. I'm the oldest of 5 children and I love my family. I have lived in Oregon, California, Virginia, and now Utah. I love anything outdoors. I enjoy camping, shooting, hiking, and just playing outside. Another hobby of mine is skiing. Utah has some of the best snow in the world and I love to go skiing at resorts like Brighton, Sundance, Park City, and Solitude. I especially enjoy playing many different types of sports. I enjoy baseball, basketball, football, golf, volleyball, and tennis which I play for my local high school. I enjoy reading and I am pretty smart and get good grades. I like to spend time with my family and friends and have enjoyed many adventures with them. My current plans for my future are to go on a mission following high school. Following my mission I would really like to go to BYU in Provo, Utah. Although i'm not really sure what I want to be, I know that I want to go there and get married and start my eternal family. I am a die hard BYU fan in college sports, but my true team is the Boston Red Sox. I can honestly tell you almost anything about them and love watching their games and following the team. It is my dream to go to a game at Fenway some day. I have traveled all around the country and been to almost all the states, I have also traveled to Fiji on a humanitarian trip as well as Mexico with my family. I leave June 12th, 2017 to serve in the Spain Madrid Mission and could not be more excited.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this gospel and have been a part of it my whole life. I choose to stay a part of it because I know without a shadow of a doubt that this is the true gospel and that through God, we can be forgiven of any mistakes and once again live with him in heaven. Throughout my life I have had instances where my faith has been strengthened throughout experiences where I have had to defend my faith or instances where my faith was tested and that still happens today. I have found that through testing your faith, it can become stronger. As I learn more about this gospel and continue to live it day by day, my faith and testimony are strenghthened in ways that I didn't know where possible. I continue to follow His gospel because as I look around the world at all the pain and the suffering and the people that just aren't happy, I know that they can be happy through His gospel. I know that I have the truth and that because of that truth, I have a better understanding of what will happen and that brings me happiness. I love this gospel and can't imagine a world without it. I would be so lost in this world without the gospel to guide me and make be a better person. I am so grateful for the oppurtunity I have to be part of this church, I am thankful for it each and everyday. It is my guide, it is the reason I continue on everyday. That is the reason i've chosen to be a member of His church.

How I live my faith

I love my faith and I really enjoy showing that faith to the community by serving them and showing them that I care. I am a youth so during our Sunday meetings I go to my different classes and such to allow me to get a better understanding of the gospel and how it works in my church. The other youth my age are very nice and enjoyable and I like the oppurtunity I get to be able to hang out with them and do different activities witht them throughout the community. I very much enjoy my teachers and the time and effort they put in to teach me and instruct me in the ways that they have learned throughout their years. I am a home teacher with my dad and we are in charge of 2 families in our ward. We look out for them and help them if they are in need. Once a month we visit with them and share a gospel message and check up on the family to make sure everything is all right with them. I enjoy the oppurtunities I have in the ward to give a talk, participate in a lesson, or teach the lesson because it gives me an oppurtunity to show my testimony and show my knowledge about the gospel. It allows me to connect with the ward or the other members of the youth and I love that. I can not wait to be able to go out to Spain and share this gospel that has brought me such peace and comfort to other people.
