Hi I'm Kiera Tanner

I'm from California. I love spending time with family and friends. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in southern California. I love summer and being outside. I am the middle of five children. I love trying new things and traveling all over. I love experiencing new cultures and lifestyles. I am currently a freshman in college. I love meeting new people, making new friends, and helping others. I love to laugh and have a good time. I love little kids because they always make me smile. I currently volunteer in a first grade class and love hearing what they have to say to me each week. My family means the world to me and I am so thankful for them. I have been called to serve in the New York, New York North mission and I can't wait!

Why I am a Mormon

I love the gospel of Jesus Christ so much. I have really come to know and love Christ through reading my scriptures and praying to God everyday. I see His influence in my life and can feel His love for me. I know God answers my prayers and that I can pray and ask Him anything. Living the teachings of the gospel make me so happy. Without His church, I do not know where I would be today. I know that by choosing to follow Christ's example, anybody can feel His love. I feel so blessed knowing that if I do my best to keep the commandments and be obedient then I can return to live with my family and Heavenly Father again for eternity.

How I live my faith

I am preparing to leave at the end of May to serve as a full time missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in New York, New York. I attend church regularly and am constantly learning and growing. I currently help plan activities that involve giving service to others in order to lift others up. I love to reach out to those around me and make others happy. I love reading the Bible and Book of Mormon and learning new things each day. I am not afraid to stand up for what I know is right. I try my best to be a good example and live high standards each and everyday.
