Hi I'm Tanner Rape

Born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I'm an athlete, I'm a scholar, I'm a missionary, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in this fantastic gospel. I have an older brother and a younger brother and sister. I was raised in a diverse household as my mother is from Chile, and my father is from Pennsylvania. I graduated from high school last year, and now I'm just about to leave for my mission to Villahermosa, Mexico. I love sports. I'm always trying to find new ones to learn about. I played football my whole life, I also threw in track and wrestled during high school. I also love music, I'm not the most talented when it comes to it but I do try my best and I'm always getting better. I'm all about being the best that I can be, no matter where that takes me. I know that The Lord has a plan and will never lead me astray. As long as I put all of my trust in Him, I will come out on top.

Why I am a Mormon

Even though I was born in this church, I haven't always been converted. I feel that everyone has to have there own experiences to convert them. Mine just happened to come at a very young age. This happened for me when I was 11, and I have never doubted since. My entire life has been one testimony strengthening experience right after another. The Lord has never left any place in my mind to question Him. Every time a doubt creeps into my head, He is there in some way to let me know that He is there and I need not fear. I know that He loves me because I am his child. He wants the best for me, and knows the best for me. So I try my best to follow His plan for me.

How I live my faith

My entire life I've always been known as "The Mormon." Which is a great thing to me. Everyone who knows me knows that I live to a different standard. I make those around me want to be better just by living what I know to be true. Whether it be the Word of Wisdom, or the Law of Chastity, everyone knows that I'm different in the best way.
