Hi I'm Tanner Yorgason

I lived in Oregon, Idaho, and then Utah. I enjoy playing all kinds of sports. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student majoring in statistics. I have two older brothers, three younger brothers, and two younger sisters. I enjoy visiting my family back home when I can, which happens every month or so. I love playing all kinds of sports, and I'm currently part of the ultimate (commonly called ultimate frisbee) club team at my school. I also enjoy playing lots of card/board games, and pretty much anything else that is competitive.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because living according to the teachings of the LDS church brings me great happiness. As I grow older and have more experiences with people from all walks of life, I continue to discover that following the commandments of my Heavenly Father is what has led my life in the direction that brings true happiness. The gospel gives direction to my life that gives it meaning and purpose. I am a Mormon because it makes me happy.

How I live my faith

I try to provide service in my community as much as I can as part of living my faith. I also help to organize outings for the church members in my area to go to the temple together. I am not paid for helping with the organization, but I do it because I want to help the members of the Church in my area to grow closer to their Father in Heaven.
