Hi I'm Tanner Maxwell

I am the youngest of nine children. I love to create memories through adventures, smiling, and meeting new people. I am a Mormon!

About Me

If I were to define myself in one word it would be... happy. I am a senior in High School and have been a part of various sport teams and have served on the Student Council. I love outdoor adventures such as hiking through beautiful Utah, skiing, and rock climbing. But the things that bring me the most joy of my life is my family and friends. They carry me on through all my trials and have helped me start on the track to becoming the man I want to be! I am preparing to serve as a missionary of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I have been assigned to labor in the Dallas Texas Mission! I couldn't be more excited to bring the gospel to people who are truly searching for happiness in their lives!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it makes me TRULY happy:) Although I do not know all things, I believe and have faith in Jesus Christ and in his promise to save us if we but follow him. I know for a fact, with a entire surety that this gospel is what truly brings happiness into my life and that it will bring happiness into yours. My Father passed away when I was a young boy. I have a sure testimony that I will see him again. I feel my Fathers love in my life as well as the love of my Heavenly Father. I love Jesus Christ and our Heavenly Father. We can live with him in forever happiness and joy with the people we love. This is why I love this church. This is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through hope. Hope in Jesus Christ that begins to form faith. Faith that begins to create love, happiness, and peace. I know that if we pray unto God with a sincere heart, he will truly let us know of his reality through feelings of love. I live around such strong members who build me up everyday! I hope that I can live as an example to others to show unto them of the love of our Savior. I want to bring the happiness I have experienced in my life to others, so they can feel of the TRUE happiness that I have felt through living the gospel of our Savior Jesus Christ and the gospel of our loving Heavenly Father.
