Hi I'm Blaze Tyas

I grew up in Gig Harbor, Washington. I love the Pacific Northwest and live on my mountain bike. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I absolutely love the outdoors. Living in the northwest it's almost impossible not to be doing something outside. There's a mountain biking park, hiking trails, lakes, rivers, parks and beach all within ten minutes of my house. My favorite things to do there are ride my bike, drive my truck, be in the water and chill at the beach. When I wasn't there I was either in the garage restoring classic cars or at work. Through high school I wasn't the best kid but as I drew closer to the Lord my life was blessed immensely. Now I have one of the biggest blessings ever and that is to serve a mission in South Carolina.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon for this simple reason: I know it's true. Being a Mormon has helped me throughout my life especially as I have applied the Atonement of Jesus Christ in my life. I know He lives and that through him we can return to live with our Heavenly Father. I know our prophet and his apostles are men called of God and that as we listen to their words and apply them we will be blessed. I know that through this gospel we can experience real, lasting joy. I love being a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Now I live my life building my faith in some way every single day. Being a missionary I go out as an instrument in God's hand to bring others to Christ and to help them feel the joy I have felt as I have lived the gospel. It's truly an amazing blessing.
