Hi I'm Tharen Smith

Im wrestling champion and go get 'er. I was raised in the small town Del Norte. Im a Mormon!!

About Me

I am a state champion at 170 lbs in the 2A division in colorado. I have awesome dogs that alsakan malauts and their names are Kia & Lakota. They both weigh over a 100 lbs. I love my friends and cherish all the crazy things we did together. Its the little things in life that mean the most right? I am also a hard worker becasue if I never worked I would never understand the things I do and I thank my dad for that. I am serving a mission in the London England Mission. I own a 69 mustang that I restorded myself, shes cherry red;). I know what it takes to be successful. I have had my challenges in my life and its those same challenges that have made me strong. Some of the things I love doing is going for a drive in my car, working out, go hunting, fishing, 4 wheel driving, going out with friends, wakeboarding, and most impoartantly spending time with my family. I love my family. I have one older brother who is 7ft tall and he is awesome!!! I have two younger sisters...... WHO I LOVE LIKE CRAZY!! My sister Timber is timber I dont know anyway to really dicribe her. She is rough and tough and isnt afriad to speak her mind. Jenna is a great youngest sister. Always looking cute and cuddly until she has you in your grasp!! I wouldnt trade the world for my family and I would be there for them whenver they need me. I was raised in the church but, I still learned for myself the improtance of the gospel in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the religion. I am adopted like most of my family and I am very blessed becasue of it. I dont know where I would be if it wasnt for my family. I have never really try to understand how it applied to my life until a few months before my mission. I am a mormon becasue I get to be with my family forever!! It is greatess blessing anybody can ask for. I enjoy being a mormon becasue I like being a example. I like to put my name out there so people know how great this religion is. I am learning so much more since I came on my mission and is been great ever since I left. It is going to make it that much sweeter when I come home to my family and friends.

How I live my faith

I never really learned the importance of faith until I left. Faith is everything! If you didnt have faith, then you cant achive any thing and thats from a basic view. Having faith is believing and know you can achieve it. I had loads of faith for my wrestling career in high school. If I didnt have that same faith I would have never accomplished my state title or view of things.
