Hi I'm Taira

I grew up in Vancouver Washington. I love dancing, photography, playing the piano, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Taira Jean! I am 20 years old and loving every minute of it! I have two brothers and two sisters, all younger than me. I am currently in school pursuing a career as a physical therapist for the elderly. I have been working as a caregiver for three years and absolutely love it. I love photogrpahy and being able to see things diferently than other people do. Dancing and playing the piano have always been a huge part of my life, as well as friends and family.

Why I am a Mormon

The gospel of Jesus Christ is the one thing that has always brought me true happiness. I love having the knowledge of where I came from, what I am doing here, and where I am going. I am comforted by the teachings in the Book of Mormon and the Bible, as well as the teachings from a living prophet and apostles on the earth today. I have gained such a strong testimony of my Savior and have learned so much from this gospel. I know that this is the one and only true church with the fullness of the gospel, and that it brings everyone who is willing to accept it an endless amount joy.

How I live my faith

Living my faith includes a lot of little things that are all part of a bigger picture, trying to become like Christ. I live my faith everyday by making myself available to always give service. Whether the service is a simple smile, a church calling, or a planned out project for someone, I strive to always be consistent. I also live my faith by doing what I know is right and being an example. While it can be hard at times to be the example when you feel like others don't notice it, it always pays off in the end and I am a happier person because I know that I am doing the right thing.
