Hi I'm Tanner

I am currently serving a mission in the Farmington, New Mexico mission. I love sharing my faith to bring others true happiness.

About Me

I am the youngest in a family of six. I love to do basically anything with the people around me! My family loves to kayak, hike, go four wheeling, and just spend time together. With my father and brother I love to hunt and shed hunt. My favorite thing to do is to play soccer. Nothing takes my mind off the stresses of life better than playing soccer among my friends. As far as work, I worked at a local ice cream shop, The Big Dipper. I am serving a mission for the next two years of my life, and then heading off to college most likely at BYU. When I break down my life though, the biggest part of it is my faith and what I know to be true. I do my best to follow what I know to be right, which certainly isn't easy, but I know that as long as I continue to try my best, I can be happy, which is probably a goal of everyone!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon mainly because of my search to find the truth, and from my experiences. I was raised in the church, but after searching the doctrine of the church, reading the Book of Mormon especially and praying about it to know for myself whether it is true, I have received an answer. Additionally, I have pondered a lot about this church, and about other churches, and I have come to know that this church has the full truth. To me at least, the Mormon church answers all life questions so perfectly. Since I have been on my mission, I also know even better than ever that I am a Mormon because I can grow closer to Christ than I could in any other faith. I can access the Atonement better than I could anywhere else. Growing closer to Christ is my goal and I can fulfill it through being a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by keeping the standards and commandments of our loving Heavenly Father. I have found that one of the best ways to live my faith is to share it with others and to be an example. I am currently serving a mission in the Farmington, New Mexico mission and I look forward to sharing the gospel as much as I can with everyone around me.
