“For unto us a Child is born…” Isaiah 9:6
Tyler, Ashley, and TJ Bell ~Families are Forever~
Tyler Tyler is one hard-working
dude! His favorite time is spent with Ash and TJ—and he especially loves making them both laugh, hard! When he isn’t playing with those two, he is found working full-time at First National Bank (where he loves it!) or hitting the books at BYU.
Ashley Ash is having the time of
her life doing what she has dreamt about since she was a little girl—being a wife and a mother. During TJ’s nap time she works from home for the More Good Foundation, sharing Mormon beliefs on-line. Her life can be summed up in 3 words: God, Family, Friends.
TJ The precious life of
Tyler James Bell, Jr. began June 21, 2012 at 12:43 A.M. Weighting in at 7 pounds 14 ounces. He is 5 months old now, more than double his original weight, and basically the most handsome little-man ever! We love him more than words could ever express. He is noble. He is pure. He is happy, fun, and we just eat him up every moment possible. He has brought a new meaning to “heaven on earth.”
Family Since we have been married we have felt the hand of the
Lord directing us and where we should, despite our many moves. But we ﬁnally feel “at home” here in Provo, UT. We are truly loving our cinderblock student apartment! TJ LOVES being able to have play-dates with babies his same age—almost every day! Our neighbors are awesome and make us want to be better people. We feel like this year we have grown closer to Jesus Christ more than ever before—and for that we are most grateful.
“And we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ…” 2 Nephi 25:26
Testimonies of Christ
2012 has brought me closer to the Savior by helping me learn more about how the atonement helps us in times of trials. When we have doubts about our potential or when we worry about our futures, Christ oﬀers a constant assurance. This assurance has helped me stay strong throughout the ups and downs of the year. I know that He will help me next year and that He will help you too.
I am so grateful for the birth and life of Jesus Christ. I am also grateful that he overcame death, making it possible that we can be together as families—forever. I know this blessing is available to all who desire it, regardless of what their current circumstances might be. Jesus is the Savior of the world, and His precious gift of the Atonement makes all of the blessings I have ever received, and will ever receive, possible. I love Him.
Even though TJ is just a baby, he is the most Christ-like person we know! All he does is love, forgive (vaccines!), and make others happy—like our Redeemer! One thing that we will always remember is how he lights up when ever he sees a picture of our Savior--babies just know, they remember. TJ has taught us more why the Savior counseled to “be as little children.”
