Hi I'm Tanner McG.

I grew up in Cedar City, UT. I love anything Italian. I am a singer, pianist, runner, and soccer goalie. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I love life and all that it has to offer! Music, sports, good food, and most of all, spending time with family and friends are things I enjoy. Singing and playing the piano, as well as long distance running are some of my passions. I also have an enthusiasm for soccer, and my favorite position is goalie. Learning is something I also appreciate; I graduated from high school last year and just finished my first year at college. I am now a full-time missionary called to serve the people of Italy!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have learned for myself that this church is true. Growing up I had the most incredible parents, teachers, friends, and leaders that encouraged me to do what is right and to become my best self. They encouraged me to have faith, place my trust in God, and to gain my own testimony. Because of their faith and diligence, I decided to read the Book of Mormon, and I prayed to know for myself if it indeed was true. As I read and prayed I saw my life change for the better, and I received the answers that I desired. I now know that the Book of Mormon is true, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the true church, and the gospel does indeed bless our lives; the fruits of the gospel are spectacular! I also have placed my faith in God, time and time again, and He has always helped me through each of my struggles, trials, and challenges. I have seen His hand in the life of my family, and I know that He lives, He loves us, and He wants the best for each of us, and that is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through constantly making my best effort to serve others, be a good friend, and doing the things that are right and best. I place my faith in God daily, and allow Him to help me. I also serve in church callings and in my community. Another way I show my faith is by bearing my testimony and serving others through music. I am now living my faith by serving as a full-time missionary of the Lord in the Italy Rome Mission.
