Hi I'm Tashara

I'm studying to become a Marriage and Family Therapist. I love Washington, books, music, and theater. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love reading and writing and enjoy a schedule. I multi-task quite well and I love spending time with my fabulous husband. I can't wait to be a Mommy someday, and hopefully that will come soon! Although some think going to school is hard, I enjoy learning and growing. I want to become a Marriage and Family Therapist so that I can be a help and support to families everywhere to encourage them that what they have is worth fighting for.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that this gospel is true. There is no denying that the gospel of Jesus Christ, restored on this earth today, is false. I have a profound witness that this gospel is true and I know with all my heart that God lives. I know that He loves me, and loves each and every one of His children. I don't quite know how to comprehend that amount of love, but I know that His love in infinite and pure. I know that by being a member of this church and following the commandments that He has set, I am becoming more like Christ and will be saved by His grace.

How I live my faith

I live my faith to its fullest! I love this gospel! I have been in many different wards, all with very different callings. I've been a Sunbeam teacher (children ages 3-4) and absolutely LOVED it! I learned so much from the little minds and spirits of those children. I've been a choir director for my student ward and learned a lot from the Spirit through songs and praises to our Lord. Even though it was hard to encourage people to come to choir, those who did come sang with the strength of angels and we were truly blessed with the Spirit at every practice we had. The greatest experience I had, however, was when I was called to be the head leader of a Girls' Camp we put on every year. I was 17 and it was my last year of camp. When I was called to be the Head Youth Camp Leader (YCL), I was ecstatic! It was a lot of hard work and planning, but every single moment was worth it. I got to really get to know my fellow YCLs and the girls who came to the camp. I was able to feel a love for the girls that I had never experienced before. I live my faith to its fullest not only because I know that is what God would want me to do, but because I love to do so!
