Hi I'm Tanner Sheide

Born in Virginia, I love to fish and most importantly, I'm a Mormon

About Me

I love to fish

Why I am a Mormon

This religion, regardless of being the truest religion, makes me happy. It also creates a wonderful lifestyle of which allows for much progressing.

How I live my faith

I am currently in a ward of about 200 people and every summer I go to a little branch up in Minnesota that has about 50 people in it. I love it.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Tanner Sheide
The brethren of the church are highly encouraged and commanded to serve missions, and the sisters are told to do as they please. In addition to that not all LDS people need to serve missions. All worthy able young men should serve, but as for the sisters, it is up to them and there are incredible women who choose not to serve. You do not have to go on a mission to be a good person. You also don't have to be LDS to be a good person, what matters most is how you live your life and how you treat others. Being LDS is only a huge blessing that is the only way of returning to our Father in heaven. Show more Show less
