Hi I'm Alex Tangen

I like snowboarding and mountain biking and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am currently serving a mission in the Minnesota Minneapolis Mission. I was born in Atlanta, Georgia, but have lived in Meridian, Idaho since I was 4. I love being active outdoors with my dad and three brothers, such as backpacking, snowboarding, and mountain biking. I love listening to music, hanging out with my friends, and just having fun in general. Life is a blast!

Why I am a Mormon

I love being Mormon because I know that Jesus Christ atoned for our sins. Without his atoning sacrifice and being able to repent and change, we would never be able to live with God in heaven. I love that I am able to have the Holy Ghost in my life as a constant companion. This helps me know that I am never alone and I can receive help from God when I need him most. I love the values of the church, and I love seeing people happy when they follow the teachings of Christ. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God and that he restored Christ's church on the earth today. I know that I can pray and God will hear and answer my prayers.

How I live my faith

I was a ward missionary back in my home ward in Idaho and it was great. I loved going with the missionaries and trying to teach people. I have been called by a prophet of God to share with the people in my mission about Christ. I always knew that serving a mission wasn't going to be easy, but it was something that I needed to do.
