Hi I'm Tarron

I'm a BYU Cougar. I'm a California Country Boy. I love technology. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up on a Ranch in California. I've always been surrounded by a great deal of family. I like country music, good honest hard work, camping, hiking, swimming, running, tubing, sledding, learning, and homemade BLT's. I've also always been fascinated by technology and computers. I've lived through a house fire. My favorite color is purple. I'm on the shorter side of the spectrum, but I try to make up for it by standing straight.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a Mormon gives meaning to my life. I know that I have a purpose here, which is to grow, become the best I can be, and ultimately become more like my Father in Heaven. The things that I lean and apply into my life make me a better person, and bring immediate blessings. I can't imagine what my life would be like without the direction that this church gives me. I know that if I want to excel to the most extent, I need the structure and organization that God has set up on this Earth to help his children progress and follow his commandments. The opportunities for growth and development are limitless, but at the same time I am not overwhelmed. I know God is always going to be there with me to help me along the path so that I can keep getting up when I fall. He won't condemn me for making mistakes as I try to learn and grow, but he will chastise me and then give me the wonderful opportunity to repent and get back on the path to righteousness. That opportunity is truly an amazing thing, of which I am grateful for. That's why I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I try to do everyday what I think Christ would have me do. Whether it be in my interactions with my roommates or with my family, I always try to handle the situation better than my first reaction. I look for opportunities to serve, instead of opportunities to be served. For example, as hard as it always is, I try to keep anger or frustration down when I see that my roommates have made a mess of the kitchen again, and instead consider it an opportunity to serve and clean up for them. I try to look at the world as if I can be just as happy with the accomplishments of others as with my own accomplishments. That way I can bring myself and others up without having to tear anyone down.
