Hi I'm Tanner

and I am totally Mormon.

About Me

I have a fascination with what is going on in the hearts and minds of people. Since I can remember I have loved discovering new things and inventing. I love building and makings things. I enjoy the outdoors because of the awesome size and beauty. It is so large and complex but the way of life in the outdoors is so simple. I just love the mountains and being outside. Hunting, fishing, backpacking, fourwheeling, boating and all things etc. I have lived a lot of different places and the experiences I have had have helped me to become a lot more adaptable and I have been given many opportunities to grow. I know that everyday is full of events that prepare us and refine us. When I was 16 I lived with my neighbors while my parents were overseas. This and many other experiences have made me who I am today. Although most people just want to take pictures of and with me and think that I am way awesome. Ha ha I am just a simple man.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I was born in a home where the church culture was present and the gospel was taught. A lot has happened to me since I was 8 however. I have lived a great distance from my parents for a number of years and when we were separated it was time to find out for myself. I have gained my testimony through a series of small miracles and experiences. It took prayerful and careful study of the words of the Prophets inspired by God and careful study and pondering over many of these experiences so as to not go unrecognized. At the time many of these experiences still went unrecognized. Looking back on my life there have been way too many spiritual and sacred experiences to deny the divinity of Jesus Christ, His love for me and all mankind and His church. That which is so easily manifest. Our beloved and precious Savior has manifest Himself in so many ways. For example: in nature. All things bear testimony of Him who made them. We just can't handle this mortal experience alone. More than anything I gained my testimony because I needed Jesus Christ in my life. I needed somebody. I just couldn't do it without him. I know that he lives. Because of my Savior Jesus Christ I am a simple man with very awesome potential.

How I live my faith

I open my mouth every opportunity I get. People need our Savior Jesus Christ and His ordinances. We are so blessed by the opportunities and strength that comes from living the gospel of Jesus Christ. Everyone needs this strength and anchor in their lives. I do what I can to share my faith all the time. Everywhere. Because a life that is about myself would stand unfulfilled at the end of it. Salvation is a pursuit. I try to take advantage of every opportunity to help others. By giving my all to follow the example of our Savior I know I will be richly blessed with more opportunities to help more back into the fold.
