Hi I'm Tyler D. Hanks

I'm a pre-dental student in Utah and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married to an amazing wife and we have our first child on the way! It's a boy and I couldn't be anymore happy about that!

Why I am a Mormon

I will never be able to erase from my memory how I felt as a 13 year-old when I started to read the Book of Mormon by myself. I would read every night before bed and I would start by praying. Those nights started a foundation of spiritual strength that I continue to build upon. I know that Jesus Christ lives. I have no doubt that you can know of these things for yourself if you just ask Him like I did!

How I live my faith

Everything I do in my life, marriage, school, work, basketball, is built around the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. Without my testimony of the Book of Mormon and my personal relationship with my Savior, I would honestly be nothing today.

What are Mormon Temples used for?

Tyler D. Hanks
Temples are the literal house of the Lord on the earth today. Temples are used to make family relationships past this life and through the eternities. I love my family very much, especially my wife, and that love is the very reason we have Temples today. Show more Show less
