Hi I'm Tanya

I'm a wife, a student, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I recently got married, and I love married life. I'm a college student. I love learning, and I hope to be a social worker someday. I like running, reading, and boating. And I absolutely love dogs.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the gospel brings me hope. Whether I am struggling with a trial or just having fun and enjoying life, I know that I have a purpose in life and that Heavenly Father loves me. I know that Jesus Christ gave His life for me and for all men. Because of this knowledge, my life is filled with hope, joy, and purpose, and I wouldn't want to live my life any other way.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by reading the scriptures. We can come to know God by reading his words. I live my faith by attending church every Sunday. At church we get to partake of the Sacrament, which Christ instituted when He was on the earth. When I partake of the sacrament I renew my promise to keep His commandments. I live my faith by praying. When I kneel down every day I know that Heavenly Father hears me. I thank Him for my blessings and ask Him for things I need. I live my faith by how I treat others. Although I am not perfect, I try to follow the Savior's example. I try to serve my family and those in my community and in my ward. This is really great because we receive love and friendship in return!

How can faith in Jesus Christ influence us in our marriages and family relationships? in our friendships?

I have felt that my faith in Jesus Christ has influenced me in my marriage, my family relationships, and my friendships. Christ was the perfect example, and so by following Him we can find love and happiness. He taught us to love everyone and forgive one another. Love is so important in marriage. If we come unto Christ, He will help us love one another more perfectly, as He does. And this makes our marriage so happy. We make a lot of mistakes, but if we love one another and forgive one another, then we move forward and grow. Christ was also always serving others. If we follow his example then we will be compassionate and friendly and try to help our families, friends, and even strangers. This is how faith in Christ influences my relationships. Through faith in Christ our relationships are much more fulfilling. Show more Show less
