Hi I'm Tanner
I am the youngest of two, my big sister is awesome she served a full time mission in Lubbock Texas. And I'm following her example and serving in Pennsylvania Pittsburgh mission. I'm 21 Years old and was raised in Utah. I love it their so much their is so much to do. I Love sports My main focus is swimming. and I am addicted to rock climbing. Mission rules do not allow me to do so, that has been a bit of a struggle, but I know the lord will protect me when I do what I am asked. I also enjoy music, I have been playing drums for the last nine years. and the guitar and bass for about two years now. I absolutely love the out doors, camping, fishing, bunny hunting, quads, you name it. When I get home after my mission i would like to be am EMT. I have a great love for helping people in need. and I Love thrill and Adventure!
Why I am a Mormon
I have chosen to be a member of the church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints. Because I know it's true. And because I have seen many blessings in my life, not only for myself but for my family. I have been taught from a young age that when I am doing what Christ wants me to, and when I follow his example and commandments. I will never go wanting for what I need. and often times I will have the things I want as well. And most importantly When I'm at church I can feel my saviors love.
How has The Book of Mormon helped you understand the purpose of life?
Alma 34:32 For behold, this life is the time for men to prepare to meet God; yea, behold the day of this life is the day for men to perform their labors. The book of Morman has simpaly given me a greater knowlage and a stronger testimony of Christ. And has helped me to prepare to meet God.
What has helped develop greater harmony in your home?
Family Prayer and scripture study!!!! In the Months Before My Sister and I left for our missions, My Parents made a big point on family prayer and scripture study. At first It was just anoying because they would want to do it right as I was about to leave to hang out with friends. I look back on that now and I am truly greatfull that my mother and father stressed it. I know that through that I became alot closer to my family and my love for them exploded (in a good way). I hope when I am grown and have a family of my own that I will be able to do the same.
Please explain the part prayer plays in your life?
Prayer Is One Of The Most Esential Parts Of My Day. It Is The Time I Get To Spend Talking To My Heavenly Father. A Time I Have To Ponder My Life, The Teachings Of Jesus Christ, And How I Can Use His Teachings In My Life. Prayer Helps Me To Gain A Closer Relationship With My Father In Heaven, And Also Gives Me Strength To Get Through My Day. That Is Why Every Day Of My Life Starts With a Prayer I Pray Throughout The Day, Then End My Day With a Prayer Before Bed.
Why/How do you share the gospel with your friends?
I simply live what I belive. Every dad I get up I know that I'm a member of the Lds Faith. and That makes me a bit differant from the world. Every once in a while My Friends or co workers might notice, even ask questions. when that happens I simply answer their questions. Nothing further. On that note If we are prepared to answer questions the lord will give us opportunitys.
How I live my faith
Well as of right now I Am serving an LDS Mission, but when I was home I served in my ward as the assistant ward clerk, and Had the wonderful blessing and opportunity to assist the bishopric in any way I could. Also as a member of the church we are encouraged to give service, so I often would volunteer anywhere I could find a place to lend a hand.
