Hi I'm Tanya

I grew up in Las Vegas, I joined the Church when I was 16. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I'm a mom, I have 4 children. I worked at the Juvenile Court for four years. I have been a foster mom and just retired after 35 years of being a part time Realtor. I am a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know it's true. I first heard about the Mormon church when I was in high school. It felt right. This church has blessed my life in so many ways. It has helped me in my marriage. It has helped me raise my kids. I've learned skills that have helped me and enabled me to help others. I feel so strongly that this is the Gospel of Jesus Christ that I am going out to share this truth with others.

How I live my faith

I have worked in many areas of the church. I have taught the children, the young adults and the women of the church in classes. I have had the opportunity to work with single adult members from 18 to 80+. It has been so much fun. I have volunteered at the local women's shelter, the PTA, and a fund raising activity for the local Down Syndrome organization. My husband and I have volunteered to set aside 18 months from our lives to serve a full time Mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and have just been called to the Washington D.C. area. We are both so excited for this opportunity.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

All Mormons are not required to serve a mission although young men, after they turn 18, are encouraged to serve a mission. Lots of young women, after they turn 19 are deciding to do the same thing. We consider it a blessing to be able to serve the Lord. Missionaries are not paid for their service and most pay for their own missions. My husband and I are retired and serving an 18 month mission.
