Hi I'm Tanner Howell

I grew up in Utah and I have stayed here my whole life. I love this gospel, my family, my friends and sports :)

About Me

I like to play sports and hang out with my friends. I am a really laid back person and I just love life. I love to go hunting with my family and I really enjoy the outdoors. I'm currently serving a mission in the California, Santa Rosa mission. I love every minute of it even though it is the hardest thing I have ever done in my life. I have really gained a belief in prayer because if this journey. I love and miss my family and friends more than anything, but I know I am doing the Lord's work. I know that people need to know what I know... The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints contains the fullness of the Gospel. Joseph Smith restored it and the evidence is in the Book of Mormon. Find this out for yourself :)

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I grew up as one. My parents and siblings were great examples to me. But I also stay a Mormon because it makes me happy, and I know the words we are taught are true. I have seen how the world is today and I don't know how they do it. I would be lost without Heavenly Father and the gospel.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending church every Sunday, reading scriptures, praying and just staying in tuned with the spirit. I know that I'm not perfect, so I apply Jesus Christ's atonement in my life so that I can be forgiven. I'm able to experience peace and joy as I apply the atonement and repent. This is definitely something I didn't do at first when I was a member. It happened gradually over time. I'm forever grateful I've experienced all of this.
