Hi I'm Tyson

I was born and raised in Utah, I love to run and I ran a full marathon at 17. And I'm a Mormon. I'm serving a mission!

About Me

I played basketball most of my life, I stopped playing because of a rigged High School Program. Because of this I decided to join Cross Country. I never thought that I would love to run! Running is one of my favorite things to do! I even ran a marathon my Senior year a few days before my 18th birthday. I also love hanging out with my friends!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in this church. But that has nothing to do with why I'm a member today. It has always been my choice to come to church each week, to go to activities, to perform/accept callings, to go to seminary/institute, to be worthy to use my priesthood, and to read my scriptures. My parents never forced me to come or to do any of these things. Earlier on in my young life I often wondered why I could never seem to not want to come. There was always something special about it that made me want to be there. As I got older and more involved I still wondered why I loved going so much. It wasn't until I got into High School that I understood what was so special about our church/religion. It is the only TRUE church here upon the Earth. As I read more in my scriptures, (particularly the Bible) I finally knew what made us Jesus Christ's true church. We have HIS prophets and apostles, we have HIS priesthood authority, we have HIS direction through revelation, we have the book of HIS other sheep in the Americas in the Book of Mormon. With the Book of Mormon and the Bible together hand in hand we have one line, one truth, one gospel. Without the Book of Mormon there was hundreds of churches all claiming to have the full truth, there was so much confusion, there was no one church that had the full truth, they each only had partial truths. With the Book of Mormon we have the fullness of the gospel, untainted by the natural man. This is why I have remained. This is how I KNOW that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the only church that is true, this is Jesus Christ's church restored here on the Earth by Joseph Smith and even today is ran through revelation from the Holy Ghost.

How I live my faith

I am currently a Ward Missionary, which is basically a missionary just for my ward. As a Ward Mission we plan/organize ward activities such as a Snack & Stroll! We try to help our ward get out and get to know each other since its a fairly new ward. We visit all new move-ins to give them more information about the area, as well as get to know them. We also just started teaching members the missionary lessons so that us younger Ward Missionaries can get some practice before we leave on our missions. I received my call and I report to the Missionary Training Center September 6th, 2017. I've been going to institute 3 times a week to learn more about the gospel, and to prepare myself to be a better missionary. I am a member of my Ward Choir, I joined because of the low numbers we have and I'm just sharing one of the many talents that I have been given.
