Hi I'm Tony Hoyle

I was born in the UK. I was agnostic in my beliefs until I found the Book of Mormon. I know it is true! Read it and you will know.

About Me

I was born in the UK. When 5 years old my family immigrated to the US. I graduated from high school. Then I obtained 2 college degrees, one in chemistry and the other in pharmacy. Thereafter I practiced pharmacy for 45 years. I married, had 6 children, which resulted in 15 grandchildren, and 2 great grandchildren. I am now retired.

Why I am a Mormon

I was agnostic until the age of 18. Then a good friend asked me about my belief in God. I said that I did not know one way or the other. He compared finding out about God like a television. There are different channels on it. Currently, he said, you are on channel 4. He said to try channel 7, which is the channel of study and prayer. He gave me a copy of the Book of Mormon and said to me, "If you read this and pray about it, you will know of its truthfulness and you will find God". I accepted his challenge, read it, and began to receive spiritual messages from "channel 7". Later in my life the channel opened at other times and I received other profound spiritual messages that have totally changed my life. I now know for a certainty that there is indeed a God. He is my Heavenly Father. He loves me. He wants the best for me.

How I live my faith

I study scriptures, pray and attend church. Currently I lead a group of older men. I try to emulate Jesus Christ in my actions. I now believe that love and faith are the essence of life. I teach classes at church.
