Hi I'm Adam Tanner

I perform, I wrestle, and I enjoy woodworking. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I love the people around me. They encourage me to do what i enjoy the most. I love to help others whenever needed. I enjoy wrestling and football. I have found that I get so much joy from seeing what my hands can do. Seeing what i have made with some wood and tools is one of the most satisfying feelings of mine. When you get to stand back and finally let everyone around you see what you have envisioned from the start is so wonderful. You get to share with others your feelings and why created it the way it is. Now it is not always perfect or how you originally thought it would look like. It still captures what you wanted it to sometimes better than you had hoped.

Why I am a Mormon

I follow the gospel and the guide lines it has for me because it has brought so much joy to my life, and to the lives of the people around me. I look forward to sharing the gospel with the people I meet and love. I got thinking one day that if I love this gospel so much why would i ever keep it to myself. I know that this is the Church that God has brought back to this earth because of his love for us. That we are guided by him through modern prophets. I enjoy the feeling that it brings when i follow his commandments. I remember when i was doubting the church when I was young I was in a lesson about the word of wisdom, and how Joseph Smith received revelation before we had the technology to know, that tobacco and alcohol were bad for your body, and that is why we have those rules. It was apparent to me that God does guide us to live healthy lives and how else would someone know that these things were bad for you without God. He wants what is best for us and wants us to live healthy lives so we can return to him.

How I live my faith

My favorite way that I live my faith is through acts of service. When you get to see how you are blessing other's lives you really feel the pure love of Christ. You get to show others that you care for them. That they are special and unique. It helps them know that God loves them and that when you have the feeling of Christ in your life that you stop thinking about what you get out of it and you stop thinking of what it takes away from you, but you begin to think how else can I make someones else feel happier today. I love service and the feeling it brings. I am proud to say that I live the word of wisdom that I don't take in any immoral substances into my body. When I was 9 years old my football coach told our team not to drink carbonation and soda in general so I completely stopped and haven't had a drink since. I am not saying that it is bad to drink soda, but it helps protect me from other harmful things such as alcohol because if anyone ever tries to offer me I drink I can tell them, "I don't even drink soda what would make me drink that?" I am glad that I live a healthy life and that the experiences I have had have helped me be who I am today.

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

Adam Tanner
Missionaries share a message about Jesus Christ and His Atonement for all people. They teach about our Heavenly Father’s great plan of salvation, which allows all people the opportunity to return to Him. They will want to share with you the love christ has for his people no matter who you are or what your background is. They will share with you how these doctrines are true and that they help bring joy and happiness into your life. Show more Show less
