Hi I'm Tanner

I'm a Missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. The Mormon church. I will serve my mission in Columbus, Ohio

About Me

I am a 19 year old boy looking to share my knowledge with others! I received my mission call on the 26th of May, 2011. I am now currently in the MTC (Missionary Training Center) but by the time this is read i will be serving my LDS mission in Columbus, Ohio. I am very excited and anxious to bring people to Christ through helping them feel the truth of the Restored Gospel. I have spent a lot of time, throughout my life, playing sports and other activities. Sometimes i like to "think" i am a natural athlete. I will play any sport that interests me, which is pretty much all sports. I love to play tennis, ultimate frisbee, basketball, football, soccer, swim, skateboard, badmitton, baseball, and volleyball. I love to try new sports and learn to get better at them.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this Church. I have spent my entire life in this Church. I know that because i have, i have been blessed immensely! Many times I have received the invitation to read the Book of Mormon and pray to know if it is true. It took me a very long time to do this. I never really understood the importance of it until i did read it and pray about it. I encourage all who have not read it to do so, and to pray to our God above to know if it is true. You will know. It is because i have read and prayed about the Book of Mormon that i know Joseph Smith was visited by God the Father and His Son, and through Josepth Smith the True and Everlasting Gospel was restored to the Earth. Because I know Joseph Smith was a prophet i know that we have a living prophet today who is ordained of God. Knowing that this is all true gives me the desire to follow the teachings of the prophets, Bible, and Book of Mormon. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints gives me direction in life, direction that when i follow, makes me happy. That is how i know it to be true. "If you are looking for an easy church, this isn't it." -Boyd K. Packer "If you are looking for the true church, this is it." -Me

How I live my faith

Because i know that this is true and that God loves me, i have decided throughout my life to return the love by serving him. I accept church callings and responsibilities because i know that i am doing what he wants me to do. I live a healthy and righteous life to try and follow Jesus Christ's example while he lived here on this earth. I have served in many callings and have benefitted from them in so many ways, many i still have not realized. I live my Faith because I have the Faith that i will blessed for doing so.
