Hi I'm Tanner

I'm from Moscow, Idaho. I am now on a mission in Slovenia. I play trombone & piano. I surf and wakeboard. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I like playing games, reading books, and doing sports. I am serving a mission before I go to BYU to study. I plan on ending some big problem in the world today. I am optimistic, and I try to do a lot of things. My life seems to be pointed in a good direction, and I plan on making it a great life.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a member because I know that there are too many things that have happened to me in my life for me to deny the gospel. I've had many miracles in my life, and I have felt the Spirit at many key points as I grow up. I have studied out with all due diligence whether this church is true or not by reading the scriptures, praying, and testing the doctrine as Jesus directed in John 7:17.

How I live my faith

I am an Eagle Scout as part of the Church. I painted the school library for my Eagle Project. I also enjoy doing service around my community, by helping trim the foliage at the community library, building a ramp for a recently wheelchair bound woman, and helping various people move in and out.

What is the priesthood?

The priesthood is God's power directed through man to carry out His work. Show more Show less

What is the Book of Mormon?

Tanner
The Book of Mormon is a record of civilizations existing on the American continent. The primarily mentioned civilization is the Nephite/Lamanite group that traveled from Jerusalem at 600 BC. God told Lehi, a prophet, to go across the sea to the promised land, the Americas. He brought a small group of people with him, some of them became the Nephites, named after Nephi, Lehi's fourth son, and some became the Lamanites, named after the first son of Lehi, Laman. They endured for over 1000 years, and even saw the Savior, Jesus Christ, after his Resurrection. until they were destroyed for their wickedness in 421 A.D. The second civilization was the Jaredites, they came by boat after the confounding of tongues at the Tower of Babel. Both groups show a record of the blessings that occur when they abide by the commandments of God and the sorrows of the people after sinning. Show more Show less
