Hi I'm Ty

I live in a small town in Idaho. I love soccer! Called to serve in the Tennessee Nashville mission! I'm a Mormon

About Me

I graduated from a small 3A school. I love soccer, hiking, camping, and enjoying the company of my family and friends! I have been called to serve in the Tennessee Nashville mission! When I return, I plan on getting married and going to college to become a Physical Therapist.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of this church because I know this gospel always has something to give back. I grew up in the church, and I always BELIEVED it was true, but I couldn't say that I knew for myself that it was. It wasn't until I went to an Especially For Youth (EFY), a week-long church-sponsored camp, that I was further taught how to love like the Savior Jesus Christ did. They taught me that you get as much out of this gospel as you put into it. I committed myself to putting as much of myself into this camp as i could by reaching out to others, accepting all the challenges given to me, and reading and praying every day. It was at EFY when my perspective about the gospel really changed. I could feel the God watching over me. I could feel the Holy Ghost as my constant companion, it taught me how to act responsibly and how to trust the Lord everyday, and how to make smarter decisions in my everyday life. It taught me how to befriend a complete stranger and learn to love them like Jesus would. I felt so good and so happy, and this gospel has helped me have others feel the same way. This gospel has so much to offer. It really has blessed my life, and I know it will bless the lives of all those who pursue it. If you haven't done it already, read the Book of Mormon, pray about it. I have a testimony that the Book of Mormon and the Bible fit hand in hand. That neither one replaces the other, but instead they compliment each other in perfect harmony. Because of this church, I know that God lives, I know that Jesus Christ was in fact His Son, and that they love us, and they have a plan for us. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I participate in my community by always being willing to lend a helping hand. I try to teach others how to live and love as Jesus Christ did by being a friend to everyone.
