Hi I'm Tanner

I grew up in Salem Utah. I'm currently serving a Mission in the Oregon Salem mission. I love baseball and guitar. & I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Tanner, I'm 20 years old. I grew up in Utah, lived there my whole life and love it. I love baseball (Playing and Watching) playing guitar, drums, piano and kickin it with my friends. I went to a year of school before my mission at Utah Valley University studying Visual production in Graphic design for digital media and am planning on continuing that when I get back to Utah in 2014. I love music more than anything. I'm either playing it with my buddies, going to concerts or listening to it 24/7. Some of my hobbies besides baseball and music are playing Softball, Bowling, Snowboarding, and chillin with the Fam. I'm currently serving a mission in the Oregon Salem Mission and loving it!

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon? Because I'm from Utah. Just Kidding. I was born into this church, with faithful family members who taught me the importance of living the gospel. But I didn't gain a testimony of it's truth until I was about 19 years old. I was at a low point in my life where I was going against principles I had been taught throughout my life. One day I was driving home from coaching a baseball game, when I took a turn to get onto the freeway and lost control of the wheel. I went off the road downhill, and rolled my truck completely totaling it. The accident should have killed me or in the least done a lot of damage to me but I walked away from the accident without harm. It was at that point that I knew my Heavenly Father was looking out for me and that I have great potential that I was living far beneath. I was able to recognize the things I was missing in my life. The Gospel of Jesus Christ. Through prayer I received an answer that I needed to be serving a mission. I have seen first hand how much the Gospel really can bless your life if you are faithful and obedient to God's commandments. I'm more happy then I've ever been right now and know that it's because of our Saviors perfect Atonement! When you put fear and pride to the side, and humble yourself enough to let go of all the mistakes you've made, then you can access the fullest capacity of the Atonement in your life, and feel it's redeeming, cleansing power.

How I live my faith
