Hi I'm Tara

I'm a tad bit quarky and I'm never going to let anything stop me or slow me down, I'm a Mormon, And I love it.

About Me

Lets see...what about me? Well I'm going to start by saying that i grew up in a small, tiny town and that makes up most my identity right now. Imagine growing up in a town that's probably two miles long tops, also a tiny town that is upset because we got a second stop light (which i might add is so un-needed). I went to the kind of high school where you knew everyone, and it was ok for starting varsity football players to also be the drum major of the marching band. Infact the biggest event in the whole town was friday night football games, got to have that home town pride. Now here i am going to a university, in a city! It's so insaine to think one of my lectures has more kids in it than attended my whole high school! It might take me longer to walk across campus then from one end to the other of my home town. I have to say though i love this new fast pace and busy way of life. My sleeply little home town will always have a place in my heart although. Thats were i figured out just a little bit of who I am and what I love to do. There i discovered my love for music. Singing, dancing, musicals, color guard, piano, marching band, tuba, flute, you name it. But most importantly i met tons of amazing people in that cute little home town and I wont ever forget the crazy memories ranging from splunking to high school basket ball games, Creeck swimming to school dances, trampoline jumping to marching band, and everything else in between. So ready or not here I am University life!

Why I am a Mormon

I was lucky enough to be born into a family with the gospel, I don't remember anything else. It's such a blessing to be raised in this life style. From day one I have always been taught that I am a child of God. I truely feel that because of this principle I have a purpose and there is a plan for me. I could never deny this religion or gospel it's more than that, it is my way of life. I feel that through this gospel I can acheive anything and I will acomplish the many amazing things the Lord sees fit. I have so much potential inside me, so much good just waiting for me to harness. It's the light of Christ i believe. I delight in the idea that i can and will make a differance, even if i touch only one life. That life has worth just like me. There is truely so much to see, so much to be happy for, so much to live for. I know where i came from, I know where I'm going, I know why I'm here. I know im loved and i know this is all true. I can see the Lord's hands in my life directing me in which path i need to take,because of that I'm never alone and I never will be. I could never begin to say how truely amazing this gospel is and the light of Chirst it helps me see in not only myself, but more importantly others. This gospel has given me vaules and standards I hold at all times,i could never walk a day without. It's given me faith to try and suceed in all rightouess purposes. Dilligence to the end. I have all the tools needed to one day be the best I can be along side my future spouse. With those priciples I'll be able to live the greatest blessing of all, eternal happiness. My Lord and Savior loves me and he will never leave me to walk this life alone. His hand is out stretched to guide me...there is so much more i could say but what I cherish most about this gospel is that I am a child of God.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through just being me i think. I try to be the best i can be to represent this church. I try my hardest to help out and serve any ways needed. Right now in fact i have the oppertunity for the first time in my life to visit and teach other girls in my church. I'll be able to serve these daughters of God and give them the love and support they need. I also have been givin the oppertunity to share this gospel through music. It is such an honor to use the talents that God has given me to bring his holy spirit into various meetings. I think I live my faith mostly by my goals and dreams. One day i will be married in the temple to a noble young man who will lead me there to recieve blessings and make sacred covenants. I will one day bring beautiful children into this world and rear them in truth and love. It's amazing to know God will trust me one day with his spirit children. I know that I need to prepare now to be the best wife and mother I can be. I need to keep my self worthy of such blessings and pure. I try to live everyday nothing less than what it takes to one day to recieve that eternal family.
