Hi I'm Tanner Murphy

From a small Southern Alberta Town. I love life and everything in it. Music, sports, nature, friends, and family. I am a Mormon (:

About Me

I am Tanner. I love to do anything physical! If something will get my adrenaline rushing, I am in! I love the outdoors and the Canadian rockies. Snowboarding, downhill biking, hiking, and just admiring Gods creations. I have a passion for music, but more specifcally DJ'ing. I LOVE my family and know I would not be where I am today without their love and support. I plan to attend school and fullfill all of my dreams with a Special Girl once I am finished serving the Lord as a missionary in California. I am a Mormon. (:

Why I am a Mormon

My name is Tanner, I grew up in a small community population of around 2,500. I have been a 'member' of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day saints my entire life. When I reached my teen years I fell away from the belief. Throughout the next 4 years I lived just like every other person in the world. I followed meida and fashion, I wasnt my own person. After discovering there must be more to life, there must be some way to feel TRUE happiness, I began my search. I prayed about my concern, for help. Soon enough I found out why I wasnt happy, and it was because I realized I didnt know my Savior, Jesus Christ. With the help of a 'special person' in my life, I had accepted Him into my life once again. I found Peace, Happiness, Love, Joy, and so much more. I know, that because I made changes in my life, and prayed for help, those prayers were answered. I am now a very strong member of the Church and will be serving a mission for a period of 2 years in Long Beach California to help others come unto Christ. To help them come to the knowledge that they are never alone, that there is happiness and comfort in the hardest of times. I will help those that are searching for truth come to know that this is the true church of Christ that has been restored once again. I love everything about being a Mormon. I find love and happiness through the knowledge I have. I find truth and peace. I will always try my hardest to help others find these things too. I am Tanner Murphy and I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Every week I strive to be like Christ. I do this by always praying and reading my scriptures daily. I attend church each Sunday and try the best I can to remember Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ by constantly trying to be like them. It is so important that you dont allow the world to take you into its influence, that you be your own person. By following the counsel and guidance from the Book of Mormon, I have come to a sincere knowledge. That I may return to live with Heavenly Father once again. I am also a Current Missionary in Long Beach California helping others understand this for themselves. (:
