Hi I'm Jameson Tanner

I grew up in Orem, Utah. I work at a tuxedo shop. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have just graduated from high school. I love playing the drums and hanging out with friends on the weekends.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it just feels right. The spirit is so strong in church and I have never walked out of the church building after church feeling like I wished I hadn't come. It has changed my life and it can enhance yours as well:) The power of repentance has particularly enhanced my life. Through the Atonement of Jesus Christ, I have been made whole again and to that I owe Him my life. The pains of sin I have felt have been great, the guilt was almost too much for me to bear. But as I turned away from these sins, vowing never to do them again and give my all to Him, He has let me know that I am okay. That I have been saved and am cleaned and sanctified again. He didn't have to do that, He could have let me sink down to the most darkest parts of feelings, yet because His love for ALL mankind, he saved me and He has the power to do the same for you as well. I know this 100%. It's so great! Glory be to God on High!

How I live my faith

How I live my faith is something very precious to me. It's not just passively going through the motions of going to church, partaking of the sacrament, or praying. I have learned in my life that I absolutely NEED our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ in my life everyday. I need to be nearer to God always. I have made many mistakes in my life that I regret, but through prayer, and through repentance and relying on and actually believing the Atonement of our Savior, our Redeemer, Jesus Christ, it is all been made well again through His infinite love toward me. And the best part is His love isn't just for me, or members of my faith. It's possible for ALL mankind. Everyone. Regardless of what you have done, what your background is, or how you've lived your life. There is always a possibility to change. He wants you to come to Him. He stands with loving arms outstretched for you and I constantly. He is happy when we are happy, he weeps with us when we are sad and feel like we can't go on. I know this to be true. Please, if you are reading this, give it a try! Kneel to our Heavenly Father someplace quiet and pray to feel His love, and I guarantee 100% that He will let you know of His love. It is so real and it is so powerful. Give it a try:)
