Hi I'm Tathan

I grew up in Utah. I love music, art, science, and helping others! And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm from Utah, United States of America. I enjoy outdoor activities and serving others. I love technology and the many ways it can help educate others about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I enjoy genealogy and family history work. I am blessed to have the opportunity to work in the temple each week! I am preparing to serve a full-time mission in Seattle, Washington.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents are both LDS so I grew up going to church services and functions regularly. I have personally chosen for myself to stay in the church. Life hasn't been easy for me and over the many years my love and testimony of the Savior has grown. I know that God lives and the power of the Atonement is real and very powerful. I am so grateful to my Savior and Heavenly Father for the many blessings I have. I love the church and want to share how wonderful it truly is with others! That is why I am a Mormon!

How I live my faith

I (try) to live my faith by praying multiple times daily as well as reading my scriptures daily I have the wonderful opportunity to work in the Vernal, Utah temple twice a week and that is an amazing experience! I also get to help members and non-members in my area work on their family history to prepare names for the temple. This is a wonderful blessing and opportunity. It has helped me gain love for my fellow man as well as for church history and genealogy. I will soon report to serve as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and I am excited and humbled for this opportunity.

What is done with the tithing that Mormons pay?

The tithing money that church members voluntarily give to the Church helps to fund the expansion and growth of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints on the earth today. This money is used in the construction of temples and chapels. It also helps to provide money to keep church building running. Tithing is used to fund the missionary program (such as the free Book of Mormons that missionaries give out). Lastly, it is used for things like education, family history work, and temple work!
