Hi I'm Tanner

I grew up in Utah and found my faith in Sydney, Australia. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a 20 year old American Backpacker currently living in Sydney. I have recently received a call to serve a mission. I will be serving in Johannesburg, South Africa. I came to Australia to find myself. Now I know what I am about and what makes me happy. I love hiking, being outside, doing exercise, and having a good time with all of my friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because following the teachings of the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ makes me happy. I feel that I have the ability to push myself and be the best possible Tanner I can be. I love my life. I had to come to the Gospel in my own time in my own way. I wasn't going to be told what to believe. I prayed. I read the Book of Mormon. I truly asked if this was for me. I got my answer. I love this Gospel. I am so grateful for the Atonement, the immense sacrifice Christ made for all of us. I love how I feel following Jesus' teachings.

How I live my faith

Something my Grandpa and dad told me a long time ago has always stuck with me. They used to say, "Tanner, be the best Tanner you can be." It doesn't matter what it is. I am trying to do my best, whether it be a job, a church calling, or a chore.
