Hi I'm Taia

I'm an American, aspiring author and and cake designer/decorator I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm single, working on becoming an author of children and teen books. I graduated from the Institute of Childrens Literature. I would like to go to film school next but we'll see. I love trying new things and being out doors. I like traveling and I love to dance in the rain...well, not just in the rain, anywhere really.

Why I am a Mormon

Because when I was little my parents taught me the gospel and as a teenager and adult I found that everything they said was true.

How I live my faith

Well for starters I go to church every Sunday to learn what "My Faith" actually is. then I try to apply them in everyday life. For example the gospel teaches that our body's are scared and should be treated with respect by wearing modest clothing and have no lasting markers such as tattoos or extra piercing... I found that as I dress a certain way I am treated a certain way and have more self respect and more respect from others when I live this principle so that, to me, means the church was right. And now that is a truth in my life.

What do Mormons believe about family?

Why do Mormons perform proxy baptisms in their temples?

Taia
There are some things we have to do to be like our Heavenly Father. Baptism is one of them. If we miss the opportunity to that for ourselves during our time on this earth, Heavenly Father provided this way for us to still complete that requirement. By having someone else do it proxy for us.

How is the Book of Mormon different from the Bible? How did Joseph Smith obtain the “golden plates” or Book of Mormon?

Taia
The Book of Mormon was written at the same time period as the bible recounting the journeys of people on different parts of the earth(the America's) then the middle east where the Bible mainly takes place. Joseph Smith was given the plates by the Lord to translate them, for us to learn the fullness of His gospel in the now-a-days. Show more Show less
