Hi I'm Tanner Russell

I was born and raised in Clinton, Utah. I love to hangout with my "bro mates." I'm a professional family man and...I'M A MORMON!

About Me

I'm a twin to the coolest brother EVER. We do everything together and plan on being close as possible for the rest of our lives. I love sport (any sport, really) and I love to be in the outdoors. I love my friends and family. I'm the youngest of eight children. I love how spoiled I get! It's fun. My wife means the absolute world to me and I couldn't think of living a day without her. I look forward to becoming a firefighter/paramedic when I return home. I was a missionary in the Australia Sydney Mission. I loved serving the Lord and doing His work. Some of my mission hobbies include, but are not limited to; practical jokes, eating, running away from crazy companions, and sweating up a storm. I felt blessed from the Spirit I felt each day and continue to receive those blessings on a daily basis. Above all, I'm a Mormon!....and proud of it!! HOO RAH!

Why I am a Mormon

I love the aspect of "families can be together forever." It comforts me. Knowing that my LOVING family can always be that loving family for eternity is a blessing in and of itself. And eventually when the time comes, to raise a family of my own and be together for eternity. It brings happiness to my soul and makes life much easier. My burdens get lighter and I know that my family, friends and especially my Savior can comfort me in those tough times of trial.

How I live my faith

As a missionary, we teach the gospel to others by "[helping others] come unto Christ." Seeing the light in peoples lives as they find out the truth about their purpose on earth is quite something. I can't begin to describe that feeling. Knowing that they have a loving Heavenly Father and that through Jesus Christ they can be cleansed from sin and have an eternal family as well is what brings peace in this life and eternal life in the world to come. The gospel of Jesus Christ TRULY blesses us as individuals and as family units. I know it and we ALL can know it by the same exact way; sincere prayer, sincere scripture study, and attending church. These all stregthen our faith and will eventually lead to much better and higher things.
