Hi I'm Tania

I'm from Northern California and I love playing soccer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm from Northern California, but I am currently attending BYU in Provo, UT. I am the second oldest of five children and have four brothers. I have a Hispanic mom and an American dad, so I grew up bilingual. I've played the piano since I was seven and took up the violin about a year ago. I love music. I also enjoy cooking, baking, running, playing soccer, and doing anything outdoors. I'm currently in school studying biochemistry in hopes of becoming a physicians assistant or a chiropractor.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this church because my parents are both members. I have always had faith that this church was true, but it wasn't until the last couple years that I've really truly gained a testimony of this gospel. I have prayed about the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon and the Restoration of our church and received my answer from Heavenly Father that it is true. This gospel brings me more happiness, comfort, and peace than I could get from anything else. That is why I have decided to serve a mission. I want everyone to know about the gospel of Jesus Christ. One of my favorite things about the gospel is that we are promised to be with our families forever. I want to live with my family forever. I know Heavenly Father takes care and looks out for each and every one of us. I see how much he blesses me daily because he loves me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to improve myself every day and follow Christ's example. He is the ultimate perfect example of selflessness and love. It is only through him and because of his sacrifice that we can change things about ourselves that would normally seem impossible. Through Christ we can fix the unfixable and right our wrongs. Every day I look for opportunities to follow Christ's path. I want to have the pure love that he has for us. One of the best ways I have found to get a glimpse of the pure love Christ has for us is to serve people. I have found the more I serve someone, the more my love for them grows. The happiness and joy that comes from service cannot be obtained in any other way. The greatest act of service I could perform for anyone is to introduce them to this wonderful gospel. That is why I am so excited to serve a mission. I was just called to serve a mission for this wonderful true church and will be serving as a representative of Jesus Christ for a year and a half in Mexico! I am so excited to serve the people of Mexico and share with them this amazing gospel.
