Hi I'm William Tanner

I was a missionary in mexico. I love soccer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student at Brigham Young University, transferred from LDS Business College. Ever since I went to México as a missionary I have loved soccer. I also enjoy archery, running and pretty much any physical activity. I like racing as well such as the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the other Le Mans series, Formula one, and any kind of rally racing, though I have never been in the driver seat.

Why I am a Mormon

I am actively involved in this church because I have felt and feel that it is the true Church of Jesus Christ. I didn't just feel this one day, it took a lot of prayer and sometimes still does. But that feeling comes back to me every time I doubt, and so i cannot deny that this is the Church of God, nor would I ever have reason to. I know that people are imperfect, but i know that since this is the Church of Jesus Christ, He will not allow other's imperfections stop me from becoming the man He wants me to be. The choice to be an active member of this church has been, is and always will be mine and I make that choice everyday because I know from God that this is what He would have me do.

How I live my faith

Before I helped organize service projects in my ward, which is a group of other members of the Church that i meet with on Sundays. Currently I assist in helping other members visit and serve each other through a program called hometeaching. This program involves the men in our ward going two by two to visit all of the members of the ward to share a spiritual message and ask if there is anything they might stand in need of. If there is, this information is passed with permission and confidentially to ward leaders so that the needed assistance might be provided. It is an awesome program that makes lasting friendships. I really enjoy the opportunity to help serve and bless other people's lives. Service is the best because when you serve others, you can't think about your own problems--it makes you happier.
