Hi I'm Tara

I'm an artist, a daydreamer, a missionary... and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm Tara. I'm the second of two children. I am an artist. I am inspired by just about everything around me. I especially love long walks with no shoes on, green grass, antique stores, fluffy clouds, wool socks, colorful street art, vintage jackets, children's books, jazz festivals, summer lightning storms, painting, quite time, Switzerland, making chocolates with my mom, day dreaming, trivial information, American History, doing puzzles with my dad, traveling, libraries, glittery snow, Calla Lilies, the color Red, Sundance, Autumn, and occasionally, Macaroni and Cheese.

Why I am a Mormon

Have you ever wondered what life is all about? I know I have. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints has answered that question for me. Life is about progression. It's about making mistakes, disappointment, and sometimes sorrow. It's about learning, picking ourselves up when we fall down and looking forward to a better day. Because a better day is always around the corner. It's about happiness and finding joy in the journey. It's about family. And taking care of one another. It's about finding the truth. And well, this is the truth. The truth is that we are children of a loving Heavenly Father. We lived with Him before this life and we can live with Him again, and attain all that He has. Christ, our brother is the the Savior of this world. He is our example. He is the way to happiness. He is the way to everlasting light and glory. Life is about living. Living eternally in the kingdom of God. Being a mormon has shown me what life is all about.

How I live my faith

My life, my belief in the gospel, and my faith in God are one and the same. It isn't really a matter of knowing the doctrine, it's a matter of LIVING the doctrine. By living my life in a way that I am worthy of the spirit I am powerful and capable. I am protected, and I feel strengthened. I am better prepared to serve my fellowman. I live my faith by loving and serving those around me, wherever I am... in my church callings, school, or the workplace. We are all children of our loving Heavenly Father. As brothers and sisters it is our responsibility to take care of one another.
