Hi I'm Taryn

I love laughing, mountains, reading and art and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a Massage Theripist, and I absolutly LOVE my job! I love learning new things - Anything from cooking and painting to putting in sprinklers and chopping down trees! I love reading - most anything. But I must say, I am a hardcore Harry Potter fan! (Who isn't though..honestly..) I love the mountains, having huge campfires and hanging out under the stars. My family is very important to me..I've learned so much from them... I'm pretty lucky to have such incredible sisters :) but most of all I love my Savior Jesus Christ and I'm doing my best to become who he believes I can become!

Why I am a Mormon

...Sheesh...I am a member of the Church because it is the one thing in my life that I am sure of. My life is far from perfect and the things I've experienced throughout my life haven't been the easiest, but the gospel of Jesus Christ is the one thing throughout it all that has kept me happy and positive and has shown me how to turn those unpleasant and difficult situations into something that will make me stronger. It's also shown me that the closer I pattern my life after the life of Jesus Christ, the happier I become. The more I learn about the church and apply what I learn in my life, the easier it is for me to see how those difficult things in life have strengthened and blessed me, and how I can use that knowledge to help those around me. That is what the Church is all about! Being happy, becoming better through the Atonement of Jesus Christ, and overcoming all the challenges life throws at us!! I just love it!

How I live my faith

I do my best to live up to the potential within me - When I do something, I try to do it the right way the first time, and when I mess up, (which I usually do) I try to fix the situation and not make the same mistake...I guess I try to really live what I believe and take advantage of the Atonement. I try to keep the promises I made with my Father in Heaven and improve my life and the lives of those around me if I can.

What do Mormons believe about “eternal life?”

Eternal Life is an incredible thing... What it means to me is I have the potential to live with my Father in Heaven, Jesus Christ and my family for eternity! Where I will be able to learn and grow and help further his work in any way I can... It's so comforting for me to know that I will be judged according to the life I live and the desires of my heart.. I won't be judged by anyone elses standards and or choices.. It's something that is between me and my Savior. I am so grateful for the opportunities he has given me in my lifetime to choose to make the most of situations...and to choose to come closer to him. Our will is the one thing that is truly ours - and we are promised that if we give our will to our Father in Heaven than we will be able to accomplish all things, in this life and in the next!
