Hi I'm MISTY DAWN TANNER CHRISTENSEN

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mom of 4 and I stay home with my almost 2 yr old. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Business Education with a Marketing Minor and an ESL endorsement. We moved to SC 2 1/2 yrs ago for my hubby's work. It was a huge culture shock for us. We are very used to it now and enjoy the lifestyle. I still hate the humidity though, sigh. Does nothing for my curly hair!! I enjoy crafts of all kinds. I love learning new things and meeting new people. I am a huge romantic, love chick flicks, and the Twilight Series . However, I enjoy a good thriller like Harry Potter too.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the LDS church so growing up I didn't know much of a difference. As I got older, I began to grow my testimony and learn for myself about Christ and His church. I am a Mormon because I believe in Christ. I feel the spirit when I do what's right. I know I can trust in Him and that He will always be there for me. When I read the Book of Mormon I know that the words are true and that Joseph Smith was a prophet. That he indeed suffered many afflictions so that we can read this precious book. I have had so many things happen in my life that can only be explained by having the protection of the Lord. Because of all theses things and more, I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I attend church every Sunday with my family. My husband is in the Air Force Reserves and is gone once a month and two weeks a year. This makes it difficult sometimes but we still manage to make it. I find that on the days we do not attend, my children fight so much and when we do go they are so much calmer. I am a visiting teacher which means that I have 5-6 ladies that I visit on a monthy basis to ensure they are well. I help them with whatever they need help with. I also teach the youth on Sundays. I teach the 12 and 13 yr olds. They are a great class and they have a lot of insight on how to choose the right. I have learned a lot from them.
