Hi I'm Russ Tibbitts

I'm a college football fan. I have 6 treasured kids and an adorable wife. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am full-time teacher in religious education. I came from a great family of 9. We've created a great family of 8. I love watching football, especially when it's my kids playing. I have a master's degree from the University of Utah in Educational Psychology.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I've seen and felt too much to not be. I love the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because of what it's done for me and my family. It has changed everything. I cannot explain everything about the Church, but I know the impact it has had on me. It is a profound impact.

How I live my faith

I live my faith a little bit better each day. I am very grateful for the covenants that I have made with my Heavenly Father. Keeping those covenants makes me happy.

What are Mormon Temples used for?

Russ Tibbitts
Temples are sacred edifices where we make and keep sacred covenants of devotion to Jesus Christ. They are places where I feel close to Jesus Christ. They are heaven on earth. Show more Show less
