Hi I'm Tanner Claiborne

I grew up in Florida, I'm a lacrosse player, I'm a high school senior/college freshman, And I'm a Mormon

About Me

I've grown up in the church and I am the first assistant in the priest's quorum of my ward. I'm 17 years old and a senior in high school. I dual enroll so I have gone to college as well as high school since I was 16. I have played lacrosse since eighth grade and have been on my varsity team since my freshman year. I play attack/middie and faceoff. I have a job to balance with lacrosse school and church. I know that the church is true and it brings happiness to our lives if we live the standards we are taught.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church so I've never really known anything else. I have found out that it is true for myself. I went through my rebellious age (not too rebellious) and questioned everything. I made mistakes and learned from them. I studied the scriptures on my own and prayed about them. I recieved witness from the holy ghost of the truthfulness of the gospel of the LDS church.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to church every Sunday. I also go to youth activities every Tuesday. I attend seminary at 5:50 every morning before school. I bless the sacrament every Sunday and help to lead the youth program.
