Hi I'm Tanner Fonnesbeck

I'm a recently returned missionary from Farmington, New Mexico, I am currently engaged, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I have been a Member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints for my whole life. I graduated High School in May of 2012. I am currently I am a sophmore attending college at BYU-Idaho. I am studying Agribusiness, and hope to be an appraiser or a agricultural loan officer in the near future. I love playing football, snowboarding, and roping. I also recently got engaged to the love of my life, Katie.

Why I am a Mormon

I have a very strong testimony of this church. I'm like any normal person who has struggles. It is because of Jesus Christ that I am able to be forgiven of my sins, and being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ has really taught me how to access the Grace of Christ. I love the gift of prayer. It has blessed my life in so many ways. Every day is a good day when I get on my knees and talk to God. It has brought me so much joy in my life, and I want to help others have the happiest life that they can!! The Book of Mormon has solidified my testimony that this is the true church of our Savior, Jesus Christ. This book has given me so much revelation and guidance in my life. I love this book! As you read it, there will be the sweetest spirit that will come into your life.

How I live my faith

There are so many different ways to live the gospel of Jesus Christ. The number one way I live my faith is by focusing on other people. This is something that our Savior Jesus Christ did perfectly, and is something that I would like to develop within my character. Be focusing on others, we will most definitely find happiness in our own lives.
