Hi I'm Tanner

I am a young man interested in many things, rock music, movies, school, sports, and being a good person. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a young married man who is very busy with school and work. I love to read a good book and listen to almost all types of music. Also, I am a dedicated sport fan and love to play any sport. I have always been interested in studying and science, and understanding how the world works. I try to find the good in all things and be realistic at the same time, seeing what things will help me grow and what things are better to avoid. I want to be a good citizen and good person, and that is what I believe the world needs most..

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of many reasons. For much of my life I realized it was an incredible life style and moral standard to live by, that kept me going for many years. But, then I really decided to put to test what God thought. I asked Him in prayer if what I was following really was His will and His doctrine. I received a very firm answer that yes, it was. It came in a feeling different than any book or music or game could give me, it was a feeling of the Holy Spirit of the Lord. I know that I need to be a Mormon, because it is the truth, and God told me.

How I live my faith

I choose to live my Faith in many ways, I served the amazing people of Brazil for two years teaching and showing them the gospel of truth. I try to follow all of the teachings that I have learned in the LDS church, especially constant service to those around me (friends, neighbors, any person in need) constant prayer, and constant study of the scriptures. There are many ways to serve, and I am excited to see the changes in the lives of those I serve and have served. I participate in Home Teaching, a program of men of the congregation who go in pairs to visit and help the other families also in the congregation, even those who have not attended church for an extended period of time. It is a very rewarding service. I also make it a priority to serve my wife and make our relationship last forever. My family is a huge part of my faith.
