Hi I'm Tanner Symes

I grew Portland Oregon. I am preparing to serve a mission in Montreal Canada. I am a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Tanner Symes. I just graduated from high school and I am currently serving a mission in Montreal, Canada. After my mission I will attend Brigham Young University. I am the oldest of three siblings. I love my family and enjoy spending time with them whether it is playing games or watching movies or just being together. Through out the past eight years I have loved swimming on the swim team.

Why I am a Mormon

While I was born to two active members of the Church, I have made to decision over the years to continue on in the faith. I have grown to love this faith and have grown to love God so much and want to serve Him. I know that this is the true church and that through living the principles of the gospel, you can have so much happiness. I have seen it in my own life. It was my choice to serve a mission. Because of the blessings that I have seen the gospel bring in my own life, I have wanted to help others to also be able to have these blessings. I love this gospel and strive to live it through my actions everyday.

How I live my faith

I am currently a missionary for the Church. I have chosen to serve a mission because I know that the Lord has given me so much and that through my service I am able to show gratitude for these things. I am able to help others learn for themselves the truthfulness of this gospel.
