Hi I'm Tanner

I'm a writer. I'm a dreamer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love just imagining stuff. I am very artistic. I paint, write, occasionally dance, and just dream. I'm the youngest of four and I love my family more than any other people. We are hilarious, just ask us. I currently serve in the Oakland/San Francisco Mission and it is the absolute best thing ever.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and was baptized at the age of 8. Of course I had to discover if what I was raised with was true. I had many struggles growing up trying to maintain and have friends. Many times in Junior High I had been told that I wasn't wanted by other people. It hurt a lot and it made me feel lonely and abandoned. My life felt quite empty and I felt utterly alone. I went through the motions careless of what was going on. I had horrible self-esteem and felt unwanted. I was blessed with a friend that helped me, and for what felt like the first time she made me feel accepted. She helped me out in many ways and through her I was able to make more friends. I know that Christ was with me during my time of deepest despair. I know He carries us in our greatest times of darkness. The Lord will always bless us with people that we need in our lives to help us feel His eternal love.

How I live my faith

I serve as a missionary. I love sharing the happiness that this church and gospel can bring to other people in this world. I live my faith by inviting people to come unto Christ everyday by doing what I do. I keep true to my Savior by always striving to do what He asks of me no matter how difficult it may be. The Lord always has great blessings for us when we do what He asks.
