Hi I'm Tayvia Hansen

I am from a small town in Iowa. I am entering my senior year at BYU-Idaho and I'm about to serve an LDS mission in Natal, Brazil!

About Me

Some of my favorite things are running cross country and listening to music. I love being outdoors and staying active. I am attending BYU-Idaho and have one year left. I love people-- and that should be clear because I am studying Communications! I value my relationships with family and close friends more than anything, I am definitely blessed.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of an accumulation of experiences throughout my life that have helped me over time to know I believe the LDS church is the true church on the earth. Although I have faced many trials (like everyone), the blessing of God and His gospel have guided me through every difficult moment. I have come to love the Mormon church and the truth it preaches.

How I live my faith

Well the main way I live my faith right now is I am serving a mission for the Mormon Church! I am serving down in Natal, Brazil and bringing the joy of Christ into people's lives. Though it is extremely challenging, there is nothing else in life quite so rewarding.
