Hi I'm Tanner Christian Doezie

I'm a Mormon Missionary serving in the New Jersey Morristown Mission!

About Me

I am an 19 year old, who is currently serving a two-year long mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the New Jersey, Morristown mission. I have been a member of the Church for my entire life, and wouldn't give it up for anything. I love the Scriptures, I enjoy running, spending time with my family, reading, going on adventures with my friends, going to Church and listening to music. Once I complete my mission for The Church I plan to attend Brigham Young University- Idaho in Rexburg. I have had many accomplishments in life, such as completing the Salt Lake City Marathon at age 13, hiking Half-Dome in Yosemite, California, hiking down the Grand Canyon down to Havasupai Falls, and earning the highest rank in the Boy Scout program, the Eagle Scout award.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into it, and glad that I was, because I honestly do not know where I would be, or how my life would have progressed, had I not been born into it. I have a firm testimony of this Gospel, and of the Atonement of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I know without a doubt, that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, and that our current Prophet, Thomas S. Monson, receives revelation today, to lead and guide God's children in ways of righteousness, so that we all can return to live in the presence of our Father In Heaven for time and all eternity with our families.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a two-year mission for The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints. I study the Gospel every day, and am trying my best to serve the Lord through my obedience to Mission rules, and keeping my thoughts towards Him. I am also trying to live my life in such a way, that I will be worthy to enter the temple and be sealed to my spouse for time and all eternity.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Tanner Christian Doezie
I was born with sepsis, and I had Group B Strep syndrome. This caused me to have an almost impossible time getting oxygen into my lungs. I was placed on life support and was intubated for 25 days, coming home to my parents on Christmas Day. During the time I was in the hospital, the doctors told my parents nightly that I had a 1 percent chance of living through the night. Eventually, due to the continual prayers and fasting of family and friends through multiple different states, I miraculously was able to go home and I know that it is because I have a Father in Heaven who was watching out for me.
