Hi I'm Tanner Larson

I'm from Washington State. I make home films, costumes, and props. I enjoy extreme sports. I sing classical music. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the second oldest in a family of six, with three sisters. I was raised in a loving home, in a very active family. We all take part in various sports and extreme sports, and aside from that I enjoy making sci-if suits of armor for costume conventions, as well as improve my skills in special effects editing and movie making. I enjoy hiking, family time, and working out. I guess I have a really strange mix of hobbies and passions. Aside from the Gospel and my Family, my favorite thing ever has to be Star Wars. I'm also trained in classical singing, and sing wherever I go. I enjoyed working as a Tennis teacher and I worked in my Dad's dental office before serving my two year mission in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it makes me happy. There were times in my life where i sought the popular practices of the rest of the world to make me happy. And even though those arguably brought me joy and pleasure, it never lasted. I have done and seen much of this world, and I can say to you with full confidence that nothing I've experienced over the course of my life has ever made me happier than I am while I am living the standards of the church and the gospel. It brings me closer to God, closer to my family, and closer to people around me. The power of Jesus Christ's Atonement is the power to change our lives, and our natures. If we let it, it will make us into the people we need to be, and will bring us a peace we could never before imagine existing. I have felt it, and cannot deny it.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a missionary for my church in Austria, Switzerland, and Germany. I'm doing my best to share my happiness with those around me, despite the hardship and confusion they may have in life. I do my best to keep the commandments, and listen to the Holy Spirit, so I can recognize what God wants for me. I love sharing the Gospel, and I know the church of Jesus Christ has been restored to the earth, to bring about our happiness and salvation. I know that we can finally have peace in life when we just let it in with the Gospel.

In whom should we have faith?
