Hi I'm Tanner

I'm from San Diego California, i enjoy sports, music, and the beach. I attend college at BYU-Idaho. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a small town called Fallbrook in San Diego, California. I have four siblings, three of which are married and have children. In High School i played many sports including football, rugby, and soccer. I am very passionate about music as well. I am going to college at BYU- Idaho and don't know what i am majoring in yet, but hope to do something that i am passionate about, presumably in the Sports or Music fields. I enjoy hanging out with my friends and enjoying the many sights and activities that San Diego has to offer. Most importantly i love going to the beach, and find myself there frequently.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because throughout my life, and my many trials i have faced, i have come to recognize the peace and direction that this church brings to my life. I have found that the people of this church are so forgiving, and know that everyone makes mistakes, but they also recognize that Jesus loves each and every one of us so much that no matter how many times we mess up, there is always a way for us to make it back to him every time. Another, more important as to why i am apart of this church is because of my family. My parents raised me with good principles and actions being taught in my home, and throughout my life, i have always been able to turn to them about anything going on in my life and they were always there for me. I know that my Heavenly Father sent me to my family for a reason, and it is through this church and only this church that me and my family, and my future family for when i have children of my own, will be together forever. It is through this church that we are able to stay together, even after we all pass away.

How I live my faith

I go to church every Sunday, where i participate in the taking of the sacrament where i renew my covenants that i made during my baptism at eight years old. In my church i serve as a ward missionary and go out with the full time missionaries serving in our area and teach those less active members of our ward family, and try and find new people to invite to our services every Sunday.
