Hi I'm Tanner

I love to sing silly songs, bears are the best animal, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

Que bola? My name is Tanner and I love every kind of music! I love playing guitar around the campfire, skateboarding and snowboarding, reading comic books, driving in the rain, eating cold cereal, wrangling wild frogs, and laughing. I'm the oldest of four children and my family members are definitely my closest friends.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I was born into the Church and raised a member my entire life, I wasn't always so sure it was true. There were several times in my teenage years that I was convinced that the Church really just wasn't for me. However, there came a time in my life when I didn't feel like I was strong enough to face certain challenges on my own, and I wanted to know if God was really there, if He really loved me, and if the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was His true church on the earth. I studied the scriptures, attended church meetings, and prayed sincerely to receive answers to my questions. As I did those things I felt the reality of God's love and I came to know that He truly was my Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

At the moment I'm living my faith by serving a full-time mission in the area surrounding Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and I am actively loving every minute of it. Serving others and helping them to learn of Jesus Christ is the best thing ever! Being a full time missionary does have its challenges and moments of stress, but as I've looked to my Savior for guidance and strength to do the things He has asked me to do, I have felt of His love and support and I know that He's happy with my efforts.
