Hi I'm Tanner

I study public relations and love golf and music. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the oldest of three boys, I love sports and ran my first marathon last fall in Chicago. My family originates from Utah but later relocated to Idaho and we really enjoy it there. I served a mission for the LDS church in Indianapolis, Indiana almost three years ago. It was the best decsion I have ever made. i currently work in the bay area and will be finishing school at Utah State University in the fall.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a Mormon and continue to be for many different reasons. My introduction to the Book of Mormon has help me develop an essential relationship with my savior Jesus Christ. I also know that the Mormon church contains the restored gospel in its fullness with prophets and apostles on the earth today. No matter what point I'm at in my life, the gospel is always relevant and liberating.

How I live my faith

I currently teach a Sunday school class that focuses primarily on the New Testament this year. I am in a young single adult congregation which can be a lot of fun. It's nice to have a network of people around my age that share my same beliefs and who like to get out and have fun as well. I'm grateful for the source of support and help the church provides. I also love playing basketball on the church team!

What is being a Mormon like?

Tanner
Being a "Mormon" is much more than just belonging to a big, loving church family. It's about knowing who you are and why you are here. It's about finding purpose in this life and serving others. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day saints contains the restored gospel of our Savior. Obeying God's commandments gives us structure in our lives and helps us to feel his blessings he has in store for each of us. We are not asked to do more than we are able, and our potential is so great when we find out how to truly access it! Show more Show less
