Hi I'm Tanner

I've lived all around the United States. I play the trumpet and Ultimate Frisbee. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I like to play sports. I like music and playing the trumpet. I am about to serve a mission for the church in Hong Kong.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because God answers prayers. He loves each and every one of us because we are His children. I prayed a lot to know if this was His church. He answered me through my study of the scriptures and through feelings from the Holy Ghost. At the end of The Book of Mormon, we are told to ask God if it is a true book. I did that and found that it is the word of God. I would tell everybody to read it- if it's not true, then you spent some time learning about other people's faith. But if it is true, then it is the single most important thing you will ever learn in your life. I know that if you ask with a sincere heart to know if it is true, that God will answer you. I know because I tried for myself.

How I live my faith

I love my family. I go to church. I am an eagle scout. I serve those in my community.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Tanner
No. All worthy priesthood holders that are of the right age are commanded by God to serve a mission, but it is still their choice. We are never forced into anything. Girls are not commanded to serve a mission. They make that decision on their own. Show more Show less
