Hi I'm Tanner Davies

I grew up in Cedar City, Utah. I'm currently serving in the California Irvine mission. I love adventure! I'm a mormon.

About Me

I love hanging out with friends, going outside, and most of all going to the temple. I am 19 and single. I am a student in college. I have sold pest control in Dallas Texas. I am an Eagle Scout.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I have had some hard trials and even questioned my membership in the church at times. However, studying the scriptures, attending church and seminary, and praying diligently has increased my faith to a point where I have no doubt that this is the true church, God is real and loves us, and Christ atoned for our sins. I try my hardest every day to be more like Him.

How I live my faith

I am a missionary in the California Irvine mission, so I basically cover southern Orange County. I love helping everyone with whatever they need, just like Christ did. I strive to become more like Him every day, I always fall short but I know that He atoned for my mistakes and shortcomings so I can one day be perfect like Him.

Why is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints called Mormons or Mormonism?

Tanner Davies
We have another book of scripture that many people find peculiar. It is called the Book of Mormon. Through a modern day prophet, Joseph Smith, and power from God, ancient records were translated into English, and now other languages, for us to read. We believe that the Book of Mormon, and the Holy Bible, are scriptures written by ancient prophets. Since we believe in the teachings of this book the nickname "Mormons" just stuck. Although we don't mind being called Mormons, the official name of the church is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. We are 100% Christian as this is Christ's Church once again on the Earth. Show more Show less
