Hi I'm Tasha

I am a daughter and a sister. I am a Recreational Therapist. I love to have fun! And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a small town in Missouri. My family is a huge part of my life and I love to be around them as much as possible. I recently moved back to Missouri after finishing school in Utah. I loved my time at school but I am also excited to be starting my career. I am a Therapeutic Recreational Specialist living in Missouri. I work with people with disabilities, adults and children. And I absolutely love my job! Other hobbies include: anything outdoors and active, playing games, watching movies, and spending time with the ones I love most.

Why I am a Mormon

I am extremely blessed to have been born into the church. Both my parents have strong testimonies that they have shared with me throughout my life in their examples and teachings. But I couldn't rely on their testimonies. I had to find out for myself if this was the true Gospel of Jesus Christ. The answer came to me during a critical time in life, my teenage years. I had always gone to church and done the things I thought I needed to do. It was mostly because I knew that's what I should be doing. I wasn't doing it because I wanted to. Until I heard these simple words in my mind "Tasha, you have always known". I can testify that our Heavenly Father knows us and loves us. Because at that time in my life I didn't even know what I was searching for. But He knew the words I needed to hear. My testimony continues to grow as I go to church, read the scriptures, listen to the words of the prophets, and pray to our Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

The most simple way I live my faith every day is to strive to follow the example of our Savior, Jesus Christ. I attend church meetings, read my scriptures, and pray. As my calling at Church I plan and organize activities for the women according to their needs and interests. These activities help strengthen friendships of the women, build skills, and strengthen testimonies.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

We can increase our faith in Jesus Christ everyday. Reading the scriptures, especially the accounts of Jesus, will strengthen our faith in our Savior. After reading the scriptures turning to the Lord in prayer will increase our faith even more. Through the Holy Ghost we can know that Jesus is our Savior. It is also important to read and listen to the testimonies of the prophets and apostles in our day. Their words are for us to use to learn and grow. One more thing we can do is to attend our church activities. There we can continue to increase our faith through the talks, lessons, and testimonies of others in our wards and branches.
