Hi I'm Tanner Bringhurst

I grew up in Pocatello, Idaho. Currently serving my mission in the Illinois Chicago Spanish speaking mission.

About Me

I enjoy being in the outdoors. I like to ski, mountain bike, and wakeboard with my family. I competed in freestyle skiing while I was younger and went to the Junior Olympics for 3 years. I have attended 2 years at Idaho State University and am pursuing a career in dentistry. Most of all, I enjoy the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He is my Savior and I have felt His presence throughout my life. I know that He lives and that through Him, we can achieve eternal life. This is the message I share with the people of Chicago. We are all His children, He loves us all, and we can return to him.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have received a personal witness from the Holy Ghost that the Book of Mormon is true. I have prayed and read it, and I know it's true. I also have felt the blessings of the Atonement in my life. As the Prophet Alma in the Book of Mormon has experienced, I have also gone through challenges but I have found myself on the top of the mountains, feeling the joys and blessings of Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving others. I've gone to Peru twice with a Humanitarian group and have served the people there. I am currently serving the people of Chicago, Illinois on a mission. I wake up at 6:30 every morning and study this wonderful Gospel. I am always trying to become a better person and to live the life that I should be living. I am not perfect and have trials in my life, as all of us do. However, I have pushed through many trials because I know that Christ is there for all of us. I know my trials aren't over but I know that I can overcome any trial I have as long as I rely and trust in the Lord. He is always there for us.
