Hi I'm Tanner Jorgensen

I am a missionary in Texas Houston South, I love my family, and the Savior, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to golf, surf, and be with my family. I attended BYU and loved it there. I am currently serving a 2 year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I am going to the Texas Houston South Mission speaking Spanish. It is a precious opportunity to serve the Lord every day.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the Gospel of Jesus Christ truly brings happiness. I was first exposed to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints through my parents. Growing up in the Church was a fantastic experience. From a young age I learned principles that I have relied on through the toughest times. As you grow in life and in the Church, you have to start to learn for yourself. I have come to know that our Heavenly Father knows and loves each and every one of us. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and Redeemer and only through my Savior and His Atonement I can be saved. I know that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. I know that Joseph Smith restored the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the Earth for our day. I know that President Thomas S. Monson is our latter day prophet and receive relation for our day. I have gained a knowledge of these things through revelation and testify that you can know of these things for yourself as ask your Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

On a mission, we are constantly trying to live the Gospel and become better people. Although missions are no doubt hard at times. Without the loving influence of my Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and the Gospel, this work would be impossible. I love being able to receive Blessings from my Heavenly Father as I willingly obey and love live His commandments.
