Hi I'm Tanner

I've lived in Arizona all of my life. I'm about to serve a mission in Southern Africa. I love this church. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was blessed to grow up in a loving family that has always been active in the Mormon church. I played football and ran track in high school and just love hanging out and being around people and making new friends. I love action sports like skating, snowboarding, surfing, wakeboarding, and my favorite, rollerblading. I enjoy researching new tech and want to major in business. I attended one semester of BYU and plan on returning for Fall semester after my mission. As of writing this, I have 5 days until I leave for my 2 year mission in Namibia and Botswana. My father served his mission in South Africa about 30 years ago and my parents lived in Namibia for a year and have frequently visited the two countries since. I couldn't be more excited!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe that Jesus Christ died and atoned for me and the rest of humanity, and through this church, I was able to become a baptized member, ready to enter into the life after this. Through the Mormon church, I am able to live my life and receive all of the blessings that our Heavenly Father wants to give me. Through this church, I am able to start a family that I can live with in happiness for eternity.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending church faithfully every Sunday, as well as doing any activities associated with my church. My child and teen years were filled with community service projects, Boy-scouts, campouts, and mixed activities organized by the church. Many times I had the opportunity to help organize and help out with these activities as a leader of our youth groups.

What are Mormon church services like? Are visitors allowed at church meetings? Can I attend church?

Visitors to church services are welcomed with open arms. All are welcome to come without judgement no matter what their circumstance. Church consists of learning about our beliefs, listening to other members give their testimonies and thoughts, praying together, and more. Show more Show less
