Hi I'm Dallin Tanner

I'm a Mormon. I race bikes, sing opera, and weld. I love sports, outdoors, music, and anything mechanical. I am an inventor.

About Me

I like a lot of different things. I am very diverse. I love most sports. I race xc mountain bikes. I have ridden my bike ascross Iowa twice. I love to weld. I love all things mechanical. From big equipment and vehicles to small, and simple mechanisms. I love welding, and working with metal. I love music, and play the French Horn, and sing classical or opera style music. I also like to listen to classical, classic rock, and older music. I love hiking, camping, and being outdoors. I love to invent, and am always coming up with new and crazy ideas. I love to laugh and tell jokes. I have lived in Ohio, Alaska, Washington, and Utah. I am currently serving a mission in Virginia. After my mission, I will go to college, and study business, and law.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church and always believed in what I was taught. There came a point when I really wanted to know for myself it it was all true. I started praying and asking God if it was all true. it took time, and a lot of effort, but eventually I could say for myself that I know that these things are true. My conversion, or testimony is like the sun as it rises in the morning. First it was dark, but slowly the sun rose. With my belief the sun is still rising, but it has definitely risen. That is how I became a Mormon. Now I am a Mormon because I know that this is really God's church, and it is what he wants me to do. It also brings more peace and happiness into my life than anything else ever could.

How I live my faith

Right now my faith is all that I focus on. From the time I wake up until the time I go to bed, my purpose as a missionary is to bring others to Christ. I study the scriptures, and constantly seek to feel the spirit. I try to find and teach others all the time. I don't always eat stay focused, and am easily distracted, but I try to spend all my time thinking about God, and what he wants me to do.
