Hi I'm Tasha

I am a young adult, I am a team player, I am a blogger, I am a missionary, and I am a Mormon!

About Me

My name is Natasha Ogle, you can call me Tasha. I have been called to serve in the Brazil Florianopolis mission! I am so excited to serve those people, the Lord, and learn more about the people God will put in my life. I've always dreamed of serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and now I get to share the good news! Some of my hobbies include: singing, dancing (in my room), going out with the missionaries, long boarding, playing soccer (with friends), laughing, and trying new things. I love photography! It is fun to capture things in a different perspective. I will be going to the University of Utah in fall 2017 after my mission. I just simply love life. I love serving.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, or a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because it is true. The teachings within the church are everything Christ taught while on earth. The teachings that bring pure joy. It is the best feeling to know that you can pray and know anything that you need know. I have prayed about the church and The Book of Mormon and it is completely true. Heavenly Father has shown He loves me by giving me every tip and key point I need to return back to Him. The gospel of Jesus Christ helps us find pure joy, and pure peace and forgiveness in life. This is the church Christ once established, brought back through His servant and prophet, Joseph Smith. Knowing this gives me the courage to keep going. It gives the strength to fight Satan. It gives the power to overcome him. The gospel of Christ teaches us The Plan of Happiness and it is perfect and I am glad I know it. I can lean on that and know everything works out in the end.

How I live my faith

I am currently a Family History consultant in my home ward and I love it. I am about to help people understand how to find their ancestors and what they can do to make them more apart of their life. I love serving others. I am a volunteer for a local children's cancer foundation. I love it because I can do so much for those who can't do it for themselves. Serving and being other's friends is a basic principle that Christ taught and it's because it makes other's and yourself SO happy! I will be serving a mission for the church. I will have the opportunity to teach the people in the Florianopolis Brazil mission the gospel, the keys that will and can bring them true happiness!

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

The Church wouldn't be the Church of JESUS CHRIST if it only helped those within it's membership. One of the things that brings the most joy is service. We send missionaries out who not only teach the gospel to non-Mormons but they serve them and love them. While Christ was on earth He served all men, and taught us to do the same. If we didn't we wouldn't truly be Christ's followers. Show more Show less
