Hi I'm Tanner Wakeham

I was raised in Huntington Beach, California. I have chosen to serve a mission in the Colorado Denver North Mission. CDNM BABY!!!

About Me

I am 18 years old and currently serving in the Colorado Denver North Mission, and am loving it! Colorado is awesome! I was born in Provo, Utah but have lived in Huntington Beach, California since I was 7, so I love the beach! When I'm back from my mission, I plan to attend BYU-Idaho, and do the ROTC Program to join the Army. I love the U.S., and want to serve it as directly as I can. I'm also a HUGE sports fan! I played Football in High School and loved it! EDISON CHARGERS 2012 CIF CHAMPS BABY!!! I love the Dodgers, Raiders, Lakers, and USC Football. I also love the outdoors! Hunting, shooting, camping, fishing, body surfing you name it! Most Importantly, I love my Savior and strive to follow him as close as I can. I'm far from perfect, but as I rely on Christ and his atonement, I become more and more like him every day!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm Mormon because of my faith in Jesus Christ. I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the only true church on earth, and can testify that it is Christs church. How I know this is through the Book of Mormon. Their are so many Christian religions who interpret the Bible in so many different ways. Because of this, it's very difficult to pin point the truth, and their can only be one true church, as it says in Ephesians 4:5. The Book of Mormon creates one line to the Bible. The Book of Mormon, pared with the Bible contain the fullness of the gospel, and how we can come to know that the Book of Mormon is true is to read it, and pray about it, as it says in Moroni 10:3-5. I have taken the time to exercise my faith, and read the Book of Mormon, and pray to my Father in Heaven to know if it is true, and can testify that it is! And because the Book of Mormon is true, that means Joseph Smith, who translated the Book was a true Prophet called by God to restore the Gospel, and that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is Gods Kingdom on Earth! If you haven't read, and prayed about the Book of Mormon, I urge you to do so, and if you do so with Faith in Christ, and a true desire to know truth, God will let you know through the power of the Holy Ghost. That's why I'm Mormon! It's true!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by following Christ as closely as I can. Because of my faith in Christ, and because I know it is only through Christ that I can return to live with my Father in Heaven, I do my best to follow his teachings, and gospel. That's why I'm on a full time mission. I know Christ is my savior, and because of that my life has been blessed in so many ways! I want to let others know of the good news, and invite them to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
