Hi I'm Tanner

I'm a baseball player, I love food, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in the church and am very grateful for that blessing. I also grew up playing baseball and have committed to join the St. Louis Cardinals baseball organization following the close of my full-time missionary service. I love to fish, fly fishing is my favorite. I also love slappin doves with my 12 gauge and my boy Mugs. For my 20th birthday, I rode a mountain bike in Germany for 5 hours straight. To close, Wyatt never took me to Taco Bell.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of many reasons. The obvious one is that I grew up into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. There was a time in my life where I had to make the decision if I was going to follow Christ and His teachings, or not. Through hard times and butting heads with my parents, I made a huge mistake and that was when I really had to make the decision. I was in high school, so I thought I knew everything. I tried to hide as much as I could from my parents and family, but eventually it ate at me so bad for one whole year that I couldn't go a day without feeling the regret, sorrow, and feeling of failure. Now I know that through the love of God and His Son, Jesus Christ, we are blessed with the uplifting power of the Atonement of Jesus Christ. He was killed so that we can live. His love is endless, and He wants so much for us to ask for His help, from which He will gladly give.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by explaining it to others. I love talking about church and the hope that Christ brings, but only if I'm asked. I don't like sharing my faith by getting involved into other people's personal life. Of course I also live it by attending church and doing my best to help my fellow men. I love doing service for others and to simply lighten other people's burdens.
