Hi I'm Tara

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a full-time college student studying Elementary Education. I seek simplicity in life, so when things get complicated I try to lose myself doing things that i love: running, hiking, volleyball, soccer, basketball, reading, spending time with family and friends. Most importantly though is my faith. I seek the Lord in all that I do.

Why I am a Mormon

The teachings of Christ are the foundation of my life. I have had many wonderful examples in my life.People who I look up to and respect and when I really begin to examine why I wanted to be like them, I realized it was because of their faith in Jesus Christ. I wanted to be that kind of person. Many experiences and trials I have gone through have taught me of God's love for me and for all his children here on earth. Having served a full-time mission allowed me to strengthen that faith that I had in my Father. I had many important experiences where I felt the spirit, the love of God, so full in my heart that I couldn't deny the teachings of the church. I know they are true because I have been able to pray and ask Heavenly Father for myself and because he loves me, he answered my prayers.

How I live my faith

Every day begins with talking with my Heavenly Father. I need him because of all the responsibilities that I have to accomplish each day. On top of work and school I serve as a leader in the women's organization in the church. This has been one of the greatest blessings of my life. I have the opportunity to watch over and care for amazing women. I visit them as often as I can or call them when I feel like they need someone to talk to.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Tara
I love the Book of Mormon. It literally is another testimony of Jesus Christ. It is a record of scripture written by prophets anciently just like the Bible except these prophets lived on the american continent. These prophets also testified of Jesus Christ. Joseph Smith was able to obtain this record and translate it only through the power of God. The Book of Mormon has a unique promise that if you read it, ponder it, and pray about it, the spirit will witness to you of it's truth! Show more Show less

In whom should we have faith?

Tara
We should have faith in the Savior Jesus Christ. Since he was perfect and performed the atonement for us we can have absolute trust in him. He can help us and he will. He can perform miracles in our lives. We just have to have faith that he can, then he will help us after all we can do. Show more Show less
