Hi I'm Tanner

I'm a college student, I love to golf, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the second oldest of four boys in my family. I enjoy playing sports, games, or really anything with friends and family. Among my favorites are golf, basketball, volleyball, wakesurfing, and snowboarding. I am now a college student and love going to school, I always have enjoyed learning and the environment that school provides. When I was in high school I took a Medical Anatomy class that really caught my interest, I have been fascinated with the human body and how it works ever since. As of now I am planning to pursue and education in the medical field and become a physicians assistant.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church because I have found for myself that this is true. I have studied and read the Book of Mormon many times and pondered about its teachings. I have tested the principles and doctrines of this gospel and have asked God if it is true. I have received an answer through all of these things and Heavenly Father has told me that this is the true gospel of Jesus Christ. Not only did He tell me through His Spirit but as I have lived the teachings there has come into my life a peace and joy that I have not been able to find anywhere else. This has helped me to become a better person, helped me to become more like my Savior Jesus Christ. There have been times when I have made mistakes, those decisions have affected me and those that I love. But because I know that Christ has paid the price, because He has borne the sins of all mankind, I know that I can change and be forgiven and those that I love can feel the healing power of the Atonement take part in their life.

How I live my faith

I get up and try to be better every day. I do my best to follow the example that Jesus Christ set to love and to serve mankind, to help others feel the love that God has for them. When I served a mission for the Church I learned the importance of charity, the pure love of Christ, and seeing everyone as the sons and daughters of God they truly are. One of my favorite ways to live my faith is to share it. I love any opportunity to share the happiness and peace that I have found. It's almost as if I have found the Fountain of Youth that man has searched for for centuries, if I had found that then would I not want to share it with those that I love that they may enjoy the benefits too? Of course! This gospel is the fountain of youth for our souls, the living waters spoken of in the scriptures. I have found what has brought me amazing blessings and I know that it is free for all to partake, God wants to bless us with so many things!
