Hi I'm Tanner Black

I grew up in Richfield, Utah. Family is in SLC! I am serving in the California Irvine Mission! the best mission in the world!!

About Me

Hi, I'm Elder Tanner Black, a 20 year old from Utah. I graduated from high school in 2011. I am probably one of the biggest sports fans you will ever meet. friends used to call me the walking sports center. I come from a family where i have 1 brother and 2 sisters with a single mom. So not every family is perfect but we make due. I am also a huge fan of music mostly 80's. I am currently serving in the California Irvine mission. it has helped me know the importance of the gospel. and have gained so much for the Savior Jesus Christ and his atoning sacrifice.

Why I am a Mormon

i was born into a family that was very strong in the church, but thats not why i have stayed in the church. i have stayed in the church because of some experiences i have had in my life. when i was in high school a group of boys got together to read the Book of Mormon in three days. after we read the Book of Mormon i got on my knees and prayed to my Heavenly Father to get an answer on whether or not the Book of Mormon is true. that night i did get my answer i also got confirmation from The Lord that joseph smith was a true prophet and that he did translate the Book of Mormon and he did restore the gospel onto this earth today.

How I live my faith

The biggest thing with the LDS religion in my life right now is i have committed to serving a full two year mission. The Lord has given me so many in my blessings and has brought me to this earth. So i have chosen to give The Lord two years of my life. I'm going to be in california for the next two years and thats exactly who I'm there for. The Lord, and the people of california. like a friend told me you cant just talk the talk, you have to walk the walk. do what you know is right. and i know that following christ is whats right and being a member of the church that has the fulness of the gospel. which is the church of jesus christ of latter day saints.

What is faith?

Tanner Black
Faith is an action. We can have hope and knowledge of things. Whether it be in christ or something else, but faith is taking the step to come closer to that thing that we have hope or knowledge of. Without faith we would not be able to progess at all. Show more Show less

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

The missionaries will share a message about jesus christ, and why he is so important in our everyday lives. They will also talk about his atonement, and how through him we can be cleansed from sin. and by doing so we can can return with him and our families for all time and eternity. Show more Show less
