Hi I'm Tanner

I'm on a mission!

About Me

Well my name is tanner, I am 20 yrs old. I LOVE RIDING MOTORCYCLES!! I am currently serving a full time mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I am the oldest of 6 kids, and have great parents who have taught me a lot! I love my family!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and have been a member for all of my life. I was not a believer though until i was 18 yrs old. At this time i needed to decide what path i would choose, the path that lead to lasting joy and happiness, or the path that lead to unhappiness and sin. I decided that I needed to know if the church was true. I had to read and ponder the message contained in the Book of Mormon and ask my Heavenly Father if this was true and if I needed to follow the guide lines and commandments that i had learned since my youth. I got my answer it wasn't grand in anyway, it was simple a feeling of peace and i knew that if i wanted to be happy i would have to follow the teachings of Christ and live in line with these teachings. I took comfort in a scripture i found right after i received my answer "For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." 2 Timothy 1:7. I knew that when i doubted and feared that wasn't from our Father who Dwells in heaven. I knew that he would help lead me to the happiness i desired. I received my answer and I am now happier than ever! I know that anyone can receive "a fullness of joy" and i know that is only through the Saviour Jesus Christ. I know my Redeemer Lives!

How I live my faith

Well after i got my answer I had to act. I read on in 2 Timothy: "Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord...but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God; Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling" 2 Timothy 1:8-9 I had to show my faith by serving a full time mission for my Saviour. I could not be ashamed of my new found testimony, I had to go and share it with others! I had to share the happiness i had received! Now I am a full time missionary i have been on my mission for about 18 months and I have had the opportunity to share the gospel with many people and hope to continue, even after my full time mission is threw.
