About Me

Talofa! I'm Talia Barnes and I'm adopted. I was adopted at six months old and was born in W. Samoa. I was the 14th child in my birth family. My adoptive family is awesome and I love my mom and dad for the blessings I have today. In my adoptive family all the children are adopted and come from different backgrounds. I also would love to thank my birth parents for giving me up for adoption because they have given me a new life. I have never met my birth family except for one of my brothers when he was on his mission. My dream would be to meet them one day but I know we will in heaven!! I'm thankful for what they have given me and I love them. I love my family now, they are so good to me and I know I'm meant to be in this family!! Im 16 years old. I love playing volleyball and soccer and also watching football. I'm getting ready to go to college and I hope to go to BYUH. I'm proud to be Samoan and love my culture. I have 1 sister and 2 brothers. I'm the youngest of my family. I love being a member of The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints!!

Why I am a Mormon

This Gospel has changed my life in so many ways. I was born and raised in the Gospel. I'm thankful for the Book Of Mormon and know in my heart that its true. The Lord hears and answers your prayers everyday and loves you. He is my hero today and forever!! I testify that this Gospel is true. If you just pray, you will find the answers you are searching for!! Open your heart to the teachings of the Lord because they are true experiences. The Book Of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. I love the Lord and the Gospel in my life today. This Gospel is true. I pray everyday and feel his love in my heart. He is near and hears you always!! The Lord loves you and I know this. I'm Proud to be a Mormon and a member of the true Gospel on the earth today and forever!!!

How I live my faith

I am the president of my Laurel class. I attend early morning seminary everyday. I read my scriptures and pray daily, and try to be a good example to others. I love being a MORMON!!
