Hi I'm Tanner

I quote Seinfeld all day every day, I am from Draper Utah, I don't lose in ping pong, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am from Draper UT and am currently serving in the Minnesota Minneapolis mission - spanish speaking. If I am driving in a car I am eating Spitz cracked pepper sunflower seeds and you know i'm sipping on my Dr. Pepper jamming to some Atmosphere. I was once a Utah State Aggie. I love sports especially baseball. I root for the Seattle Mariners and the Utah Jazz. I enjoy playing baseball in the park, being wet from behind the arc, and tennis. I love breakfast burritos. My friends tell me they recieved "better" mission calls than I did but it's not true. Speaking spanish in random states is where it's at.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a 10th generation member in the LDS church but that isn't why I am Mormon. I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because I have a testimony of my own gained through study, prayer, and really just seeing the blessings from obeying the commandments and having a gospel-centered life. I know that God loves us and has called prophets and apostles to lead us today, I believe in the restored power of the priesthood, I know the Book of Mormon is the word of God. Really I am Mormon because being a Mormon makes me a better person and I like being a good person.

How I live my faith

I am a full-time missionary right now and am trying to bring people closer to Christ. I try to be a good example to my family. I often read from the Bible and the Book of Mormon and I am in constant communication with my Heavenly Father through prayer. I go to church every Sunday and partake of the sacrament to remember what my Savior did for me. I sing the hymns because it's a wonderful way to worship God and to feel the spirit.
