Hi I'm Hunting Tanner

I am 18 years old. I'm from Huntington Beach California. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love being with my family and friends. Whether it is going to the beach or the movies or just relaxing at home, I love spending time with the people I love most. I played both tennis and basketball in high school. From the summers of 2017-2019 I will be in Argentina serving a mission for the my Church. I plan on attending college in Utah when I return home.

Why I am a Mormon

This church has brought me more joy and more feelings of love and happiness than anything else in this world. That is why I am a Mormon. I know that I have a Father in Heaven who loves me and wants me to return back to him. I am so grateful that I have grown up in this gospel and been able to receive its blessings. I know Jesus Christ paid the price of everyone's sins. He felt every pain and affliction anyone has ever experienced. And he did it all for me. He did it so that I can repent of my sins and be able to return to his presence again. I love my savior Jesus Christ. I know the Book of Mormon is true because of the happiness it brings me every time I read it. Soon I will be serving a 2 year mission in Argentina. If I did not know this church was true I would not be going. Plain and simple. Because I love this gospel so much I am going to sacrifice 2 years of my life to bring others the good news of Jesus Christ. And I can't be more excited!

How I live my faith

My faith has always had a huge impact on how I live my life. From Church on Sunday's, to youth groups & camps, to early morning church class before school, it has truely shaped the way I live. I am blessed to hold many callings in my church, which I take very seriously and give my best effort to fulfill. As a Mormon, my peers at school have almost expected me to be nice and not lie cheat or steal. And I love that! They helped me live on a higher standard to help keep me in check with my beliefs. I am a firm believer in actually living what you believe. I absolutely love participating in church activities because of the good feeling I get when I am there. Everyone is always so nice and welcoming and I just feel loved by everyone!
