Hi I'm Tanner Davis

I was born Utah. I served in the Bolivia Cochabamba mission. I love tennis and basketball and hiking. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I played tennis at Orem High I love basketball as well, whether it is in the backyard or on a court if you ask I'll be there. I got accepted to BYU but I am putting it on hold to serve The Lord for two years in Bolivia. I want to study either chemical or medical engineering. I listen to all sorts of music from Mumford & Sons to The Front Bottom, Mormon Tabernacle Choir to Broadway (not the musical stuff).

Why I am a Mormon

I never really truly understood what the church and the Gospel meant to my life until I attended LDS seminary in high school. They challenged us to read The Book of Mormon over the course of freshman year. I had never really read the book from cover to cover before that point. I read the book over the course of that year and did finish it. I have read and reread it since that point and each time I read it I learn something new about myself because of the powerful truths behind each different book within The Book of Mormon. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, but the line of prophets on Earth did not end with his death. There is a prophet of God on Earth today! Thomas S. Monson is the one and only prophet on the Earth today with the authority to commune with God and lead this church. If you have not read The Book of Mormon I urge you to give it a chance! You will never read a better book on Earth. I will make the same promise to you as the prophet Moroni does at the end of the Book of Mormon, after you have read the book that if you ask God with full honesty of heart He will manifest the truth of it.

How I live my faith

My friend (whom I have know for my entire life) and I have been called to teach the 12-14 year olds in our ward in preparation for serving missions and being able to teach lessons about the Restored Gospel. It has been an interesting experience teaching teenagers when I was their age not too long ago and seeing how much this Gospel has taught me in such a short period of time. Most of what I have learned from the Gospel has been through teaching it. As the old Latin saying goes, "Qui docet discit" (He who teaches learns).
