Hi I'm Barbara Tapia

I'm Mexican and love dancing. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I'm currently serving a mission in the Redlands, California Mission and I love it! Other than being a missionary I love dancing, all kinds of dancing. I love playing sports, mainly soccer, but I love all sports. I love nursing and helping people. I have a twin brother who is also serving a mission, he is in the San Antonio, Texas Mission. I was going to Salt Lake Community College before my mission and liked it. I love my family and friends. I just love having fun and making people happy.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up going to church and with the teachings in my life but there's a point where you have to find out for yourself, and that's what I did. I decided to ask my Heavenly Father if the things I had been taught my whole life are true. I remember that feeling of peace and comfort after I prayed, it was as simple as that. I didn't see angels or felt an overwhelming feeling, it was simple feeling of peace that let me know I was on the right path. I testify that this church is true, that Joseph Smith saw God the Father and His son Jesus Christ. I know that Jesus is my savior and knows me and my struggles, I know that he lives!

How I live my faith

Well, I'm a missionary of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saint.
