Tim Tanner was raised on a small horse ranch in a farming community near Ogden, Utah.

He holds a bachelor of fine arts degree from Utah State University and a masters of educational technology from Boise State University. Tim is nationally recognized in several fields, including as an artist, illustrator, designer, author, historian, and historic preservationist.

Tim served a mission to Santiago, Chile.  Most of his Church service time has been spent in the young men and scouting organizations, with a few brief forays into other quorum and auxiliary presidencies.

He and his wife, Johnna, share a love of history and have traveled most of the Eastern United States enjoying church history and American history sites. They have lived in and restored several historic homes over their 33 of marriage, including living in a circa 1750 colonial home in Connecticut. Their current home is a restored pioneer home, with many parts shipped in from the Kirtland, Ohio area. Tim and Johnna have three children.
