Hi I'm Thayne Hansen

I grew up in Utah and later moved to California as a teenager. I am currently preparing to serve a mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have participated in drama all throughout high school. I enjoy learning new things whether that is from school or studying things online or learning new fun things to do. A few of the things that I really enjoy doing is riding my unicycle, solving rubik's cubes, hanging out with friends, and just genuinely having fun. I will do anything from playing video games to jumping off a bridge just to have a good time. In college I plan to study computer science to become a software engineer. I have just recently begun to be interested in programming but I have a knack for it and really enjoy it. My dream job is to work as a software engineer for Google. Some day I hope to become a supportive and successful husband and father, my father is my greatest role model and I can only dream of someday becoming just that to my kids someday.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the church my entire life, and up until recently I have relied on my parents testimony to get by. My experience of gaining a full testimony of my own is very personal to me and is something that not a lot of people know. What I can say though is that I now know for myself that this church is the true church of God, there is no doubt of that in my mind.

How I live my faith

I have been an active member of the Mormon Church my entire life. I have participated in leadership positions where I had the opportunity to preside over a small group of boys my age; giving assignment and planning activities. I am preparing to serve a mission for the church, I have received my call to Mexico City and will be reporting to the missionary training center on September 3, 2014 where, on top of learning to be a missionary, will learn the Spanish language to help me serve more effectively in Mexico. I try to serve the Lord through my day to day activities and in all that I do. I strive to follow the commandments and to read and study the Scriptures everyday.
