Hi I'm Tira Bacon

I was born and raised in Tallahassee, FL. I love music and sports. RM from the Portugal Lisbon mission.

About Me

I love to compose music, sing, and jam out with my friends. I love to get outside and explore the nature around me. I love to get out and play sports with friends. I love to get out and serve others; it's the greatest feeling in the world. I'm working towards a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and Special Education. I look forward to being an elementary school teacher in the near future.

Why I am a Mormon

I love being a Mormon. I am a convert to the LDS church. I was baptized when I was 17 years old. This gospel gives me hope. It gives me a purpose in this life. I know who I am, why I am here, and where I am going. That knowledge gives me confidence and strength to face every day with more enthusiasm and optimism. Without this gospel, I would be lost and so unhappy. I love the temple and the power that it has in our lives. I love that we have the opportunity to live with our families forever. We have a loving Heavenly Father who gives us endless chances to show that we deserve to live in His presence forever! Eternal happiness. That is what this gospel brings. I love missionaries. Without them, I would not be here. I am so grateful that my Heavenly Father loves me enough to bring me this gospel at a young age. I know that on Heavenly Father's path for me is where I will find the greatest happiness. I want everyone to feel this happiness!

How I live my faith

I served a full-time mission in the Portugal Lisbon mission and it truly taught how to live my faith. I strive to be a daily example to my family members, who are not members of the LDS church. I work with the missionaries in order to seek opportunities to bear my testimony as much as possible.
