Hi I'm Tyler Beckstrand

I play soccer. I'm serving a mission in Ghana. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am an 18 year old boy who will be serving a mission in Ghana. I love to play soccer and spend time with my family. I love to learn and will be going to a university after I serve full time for the church. I also like to sing and spend time with friends. Having fun is very important to me, but also being very spiritual is vital to my life as well.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because i know that this is the one true church on the earth. Many of my life experiences have taught me and testified to me that I need this church. It changes lives and it has changed mine in so many amazing ways. It is a gospel of Faith and repentance, and it is filled with a love that God has for us. It keeps us clean and healthy as we strive to live a better life on the earth. I testify that this church is true and that the prophet we have today on this earth is a messenger from God, here to give us truth and council. I promise that this church will bless your life.

How I live my faith

I have participated in many roles in the church. I have been a president in one of my groups, and an advisor to another as well. I have also have gone to the home of many families and have taught them more about the gospel of Jesus Christ. This summer i will going off to serve a 2 year mission for the church teaching and preaching about the gospel to all of those who will want to hear it. I have also taught the peers in many of my classes and I help out organizing and planning youth activities for my entire stake, as part of the youth council we gather together and discuss what we can do to help all the youth.

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Tyler Beckstrand
The Atonement of Jesus Christ is the most sacred thing that has happened on this earth. Jesus, the true son of God, came down to this earth to die and pay for all of our sins. He did this so that we could be washed clean through all the sins of the world. No matter how bad we sin or how far we fall of the path, we can repent knowing that Christ made that possible. We can forgot all of our wrong doings and look forward to a brighter future. It also redeems us, the atonement helps us to recognize our sins and to progress through them teaching us valuable life lessons. Show more Show less
