Hi I'm Tanner

I am serving a mission in Ribeirao Preto, Brazil! I Love to play lacrosse and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Salt Lake City, Utah! I have moved around the country a little. I've lived in Ohio, Texas and Minnesota! I moved to Minnesota in 6th grade and I went to Chaska High School where I played lacrosse and football. In the fall of 2011 I returned to Utah to attend Utah Valley University. I played lacrosse out there as a freshman! It was an awesome experience! In the winter of 2012 I received my mission call! I am serving in the Brazil, Ribeirão Preto mission! Even though I was temporarly re-assigned to Detroit Michigan I still love serving!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because my parents held strong to the gospel and raised their children in the gospel. Although I was born in the mormon church, I had to find out for my self whether or not the church is true. I read the book of mormon and prayed about it. It is true. The Holy Ghost touched my heart and made it known to me. I know that Joseph Smith is a prophet of God, I know this because I know the Book of Mormon is true. To me they go hand in hand. I know that the Holy Ghost is real. It touches everyone in different ways. I may feel the chills or a joyful or peaceful feeling but it the follows in a dead focus. It is real. I know this church is true. Following the commandments of the Lord will bring joy to your life like it has in my own life.

How I live my faith

I was called to serve a mission in the Brazil Ribeirão Preto mission! I currently live my faith by serving Heavenly Father for 2 years! Prior to my mission I was called to be a Ward Missionary and a Primary teacher! It was such a blessing! I love going to church on sundays and being able to feel the spirit in the meetings. Even though I was born in the church I struggled to find the true meaning of the church. I was blessed with a great teacher and he helped me understand the church a whole lot more and now I have the opprountity to share this message with those that need it!
