Hi I'm Tanner

I'm from Star Valley, Wyoming. Currently serving a mission in sunny San Diego. I love Taco Bell and anything flannel.

About Me

I am a boy from a small town in Wyoming. I grew up in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I love basketball, football, baseball, fishing, and anything outdoors. After my mission, I'm going to THE Utah State University.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have had the experiences that helped me to know that this was the true church. These experiences were occasionally gained through trial and error. I am a member because I have had sincere experiences with the joy of Jesus Christ' atonement and the blessing and peace it gives to bear the burden of sin. I remain a member because I love being a member and the guidance that the Church gives me. I have been blessed with wonderful friends and family that have had strong testimonies of this gospel and the blessings that it brings. I'm a Mormon because the gospel of Jesus Christ is what this life is all about and it is how we find true lasting happiness.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing my best. I have the knowledge of the gospel and the things that I should do. Though I am not perfect I know that we were never meant to be perfect. We are meant to be tried and tested and rise through these trials with the help of our Savior Jesus Christ. I live my faith with a bright hope for all things in the future.

What is the priesthood?

The priesthood is the authority to act in God's name. The men who receive this priesthood are expected to be worthy and follow the example of Christ. One may have the authority to use his priesthood, but the power one has is directly reflected on how he lives his life and how well he lives the commandments of God. Show more Show less
