Hi I'm Tanner

I am living the Dream, I love everyone who surrounds me, and I am truly happy. All this and more… because I’m a Mormon

About Me

I am currently a college student attending Utah Valley University where I am pursuing a Degree in Technology Management. I grew up in Alpine, Utah. I have been blessed with thee greatest family. As well as a great job and great friends. I love to restore and modify classic cars, play basketball, dance, and most of all laugh. I love learning how things work. I love to study Design and Innovation. I am an Ambassador for a company called People Water. I love clothes, and shoes. This can sometimes be a problem haha. I love to Create. I love starting with nothing and seeing how your vision can change as you create something. I lived in Toronto Canada for a few years where I was blessed to be A Witness of Change. In Toronto, I was blessed to see miraculous changes made in the lives of others. Through witnessing change in others, I witnessed change in myself. My life is a miraculous story that I am anxious to share with the world. I have been writing a book about my life and continue to work on it daily. I believe in Jesus Christ. He is my Lord, my King, and he is my best friend. I can do all things through him. I'm a Son, I'm a Brother, I'm an uncle, I'm a lover of life, and I'm a Mormon

Why I am a Mormon

I haven't always been this happy. In my life there have been many times that things haven't turned out the way I had anticipated they would. I am thankful for these moments because they have helped me develop and grow. There was a time in my life where I felt very alone. I had many people close to me pass away in a very short amount of time. I was lost, confused, and I was experiencing a lot of pain. My family decided to plan a vacation to Cancun where we could relax. The trip didn't quite turn out the way we had planned. On April 17, 2009 I was swimming in the ocean and I was stung by an Irukandji Box Jellyfish. For those of you who are not familiar with the Irukandji, it is the deadliest and most venomous creature on earth. This was a very scary time for me and my family. I remember laying in my hospital bed, wondering if it was the last bed that I would ever lay in. That night, I received a Priesthood blessing from my father. This was a night that changed my life. I remember laying in my hospital bed, and my heart was filled with regret. My biggest regret was that I didn't get the chance to tell everyone around me how much I loved and appreciated them. I will never forget the calls we received that my home ward was fasting and praying for me. In time, I was able to make a full recovery. Every day I have lived since, I consider a gift. I know I will live with my family again. I know Christ Lives. I can do all things through him. Lean on my testimony, for I know He Lives.

How I live my faith

Every day that we are given on this earth is a gift. Every morning when I wake up I remind myself that I am going to come in contact with people that day who are struggling. Everyone has trials and challenges, but not everyone has a shoulder to lean on. My goal every day is to Love Everyone. I hope through my love, that others will feel the love of our Savior. There will come times in your life, that you will feel alone. You will feel like no one can relate to you and what you are going through. My message to you is that You are not alone. Although you feel that no one can relate, I know that there is one person who knows exactly how you feel. That person is our Savior Jesus Christ. Through him you will find comfort. I know this, because he has been my source of comfort at many times in my life. This is the greatest knowledge that I have ever attained. I want to share this knowledge with the world.
