Hi I'm Tanner

I love playing basketball, reading good books and hanging with friends. I served a two year mission in Honduras. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm studying at Brigham Young University at the moment, but when I'm not in class or doing homework you'll usually find me playing basketball with friends or doing something on the computer. I'm the oldest son out of 4 boys and 1 little sister and I have a brother who is currently serving a mission in the Kentucky Louisville mission.

Why I am a Mormon

Well I was born into the faith, but over the years I have gained my own testimony of the truth of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I gained this testimony by reading the different Scriptures, especially the Book of Mormon, through prayer and also by serving a full time mission - helping others to come unto Christ.

How I live my faith

Everyday I try to remember what Christ did for me, and how He makes everything possible. I try not to only live my faith on Sundays, but everyday through habits that I've acquired and the example I give.

Who chooses the Mormon prophet?

Tanner
Our prophet is chosen based on seniority. When the former prophet passes away, the most senior member of our presiding group of men ( The Quorum of the Twelve Apostles ) becomes the new prophet. Show more Show less
