Hi I'm Tanner

I currently live in Utah, I recently graduated from High School, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am the youngest of 3 in my family. I love helping and caring for others, and I love to have fun! I enjoy playing all kinds of sports, especially basketball. I leave for my mission to Riverside, California in about 30 days! And I plan on attending BYU when I get home.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been blessed to have grown up in the gospel. Ever since I was young I would go to church on sunday, read my scriptures, and pray. By consistently doing this on a daily basis I have grown such an unshakeable testimony and a strong love for Our father in Heaven, Jesus Christ, and the atonement. I know without a doubt that this gospel is true, that Joseph Smith did translate the Book of Mormon for each and every one of God's chidren, the Book of Mormon is true, we have a loving father in heaven who knows us personally and communicates with us, Jesus Christ did atone for our sins so we may return to him and our father in heaven again, and President Thomas S. Monson is the prophet at this time and is the mouth piece for the Lord.

How I live my faith

I constantly look for opportunities to serve others. I"ll go visit an elderly couple in my ward who sometimes cant make it to church due to old age and health, and I just sit down and talk with them. I also try to encourage the youth to not settle, to continually find ways to improve.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Tanner
The way we gain faith is by being obedient to God's commandments, studying His word, and having a desire to believe in Christ. So how do we increase that faith? We increase our faith by obedience, diligently seeking for truth through the scriptures and words of the prophets and apostles. On the contrary, if we begin to be disobedient to the commandments of our Lord, and stop studying His word, then our faith slowly begins to diminish. Don't let that happen! Continue to seek for truth, and keep the spirit with you. Show more Show less
