Hi I'm Tosha

I'm a student at BYU and I grew up in Provo. I love music, singing, and playing the piano. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Provo, Utah. I am the oldest of three kids. I have played the piano since I was five years old and I absolutely love music. I love watching movies, going on bike rides, taking naps, eating delicious food, singing, and spending time with my family. I am a student at Brigham Young University.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family that was already members of the church. I grew up being taught church principles and was baptized and became a member when I was 8 years old. As I have gotten older I have prayed and read the Book of Mormon and gone to church on my own. As I have done this I have felt God's love and I know for myself through the Spirit that these teachings are true. I have had times in my life when I was struggling and as I turned to Jesus Christ I felt so much peace and comfort. I know that I am so happy because of the church and its teachings. I am a Mormon because it defines who I am: a daughter of God.

How I live my faith

I love to use music in church service, especially playing hymns and accompanying musical numbers. I attend church meetings each Sunday and participate in church classes and activities. I love the opportunities to make new friends and serve my neighbors by participating in church activities. Right now I am serving as a missionary for the church in Japan. As a missionary I share my beliefs with others and teach those who want to learn more. I love being able to meet members and friends from around the world! My family is living in Germany right now while my dad is president over the missionary work there. I am so thankful for these opportunities that I and my family have to learn and grow because of our faith and learn to rely on each other and on God.
