Hi I'm Tanya

I'm a Mormon, from Salt Lake City. I am a convert to the church, and a soon to be LDS missionary in Irvine California.

About Me

I love to perform, sing and dance mostly. I love to spend time with my family, and travel! Disneyland is my favorite place on earth, I have been to almost all 50 states. I havent gone anywhere foreign yet... I read... a lot I work with my three best friends and we are all planning on serving the lord!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon, because there is such a good feeling in being one. I love that even though I am not perfect, I can always try and my Heavenly Father will love me just the same. I went through really hard things in my life, and he was there when I needed him. He never leaves me, I know that he blessings me with care, and love. With the Savior and Heavenly Father I am everything, without them, I am nothing. If you're doubting weather the church is true or not, get on your knee's and ask him! He will give you the comfort and the answer you need to hear. Being apart of this church has CHANGED me. I know it's true, because he loved me at my worst. And he still loves me now. I am a Mormon, I know it. I live it. I love it!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending my church block every single week,reading my scriptures daily and praying both in the morning and at night. I attend the temple weekly so that I can feel the guidance of my heavenly father and feel the love he has for me. I teach the children in my ward, there are the youngest class there is, and so are super silly. Soon I will do the lords work and preach the gospel in Irvine California! I will be speaking Spanish! I am so excited and I know this will be one of the best callings I will ever be apart of. I cannot wait to be a full time missionary.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Being a convert, I had to know that he was real before I could even consider joining. I prayed frequently asking "Is this true?" "Do you really exist?" I gave up the things I was doing that didn't follows the Words of Wisdom, I attended church with my active family members. when the answer came, it was all at once. I just knew that this book was true, and that heavenly father really did exist! I knew that the love that he had for us was UNLIMITED! I developed faith. I believe in something I could see or touch, but I could feel in my heart. I later learned that it was the Holy Ghost. It was comforting and happy. It is real! I encourage you to just try it and see for yourself! Show more Show less
