Hi I'm Tahlea

I'm a health and fitness enthusiast. I love to travel and explore the beauty of this earth. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Born in California, and mostly raised in Colorado, I love the ocean, mountains, and almost everything related to the great outdoors. Being blessed to live in such beautiful places has surely inspired that passion, as I find solace and joy in the beauty of this earth. I am a daughter, stepdaughter, granddaughter, sister, niece, and friend. I am the oldest with one brother and one half-sister. My brother passed away seven years ago; yet, his bright, cheery nature is always remembered. I love hiking, biking, yoga, zumba, dancing, and any fun fitness routine. I feel richly blessed with a supportive, loving family and wise, joyful friends.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents both joined the Church in their mid-twenties, but I was raised in the gospel. At a young age, I developed a testimony of the gospel by reading the Book of Mormon, attending primary, and feeling closer to Heavenly Father through prayer. I remember always feeling excited to be at Church to learn of the teachings of Jesus Christ. I have found through earnest prayer during hard times that we do have a Heavenly Father and Savior who are very much aware of our circumstances. They want to help us find joy in this life, desiring to bless us with the righteous desires of our hearts. I have seen incredible miracles, not mere coincidences, to help me know without a doubt of their existence. I am a Mormon because I find joy, peace, and understanding of who I am from the Church. Life is much clearer and better understood when I am learning and living the teachings of the gospel.

How I live my faith

The Church plays an active role in my daily life. I continually pray and read the Book of Mormon to remind myself of our purpose in this life. I love Sunday and how it can be different from the other six days of the week, as I set aside the time to reflect on the Savior. I love the collective learning that comes from attending Church. I also gain great insights from the women I teach one Sunday each month. I also get to be involved, as a secretary, for a committee focused on organizing activities for single Mormons in my age group. As I meet people through Church, the community, or work, I am truly inspired to let the light and joy I feel from my Savior be shared with them. In doing so, people often comment that I am always happy. By living my faith, I find happiness comes naturally and easily.
