Hi I'm Tausha

I grew up in Ogden, Utah. I grew up even more when I moved in with my sister when I was 17. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to be outside. Camping and hiking in the mountains are my favorite things of all time. I love to play sports. I am currently going to college, just getting my generals so far.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church but when I was 9 years old, my mother passed away. My family and I stopped attending church to avoid questions or reminders of her that would come all the time. Instead of going to church we would usually go camping or just go out and do something fun as a family. My father started to date a few months after my mother passed away and within a year he was remarried. She was LDS as well and tried to get us going to church again. The ward there was sort of judgmental to my brother and I because we were new and they didn't accept who we were. My brother and I again stopped going to church. Then after a while my brother and I decided to move away from my father and his wife and live closer to his job. I was still in high school and the school I tried to enroll in wouldn't accept me. On the way home from finding that, my sister (who was already married and moved out) called me and said that her house was always open for me. She told me that if I was to live with her I had to attend the LDS church again. I figured that was better than where I was at the time so 3 days later I moved in with her. I started going to church and it just seemed like everything was working out for me. My life had finally fallen into place and I became really happy. The more things I involved myself in that had something to do with the church or the church's standards, the happier I became. I am a Mormon because this faith gives me hope and a connection to the person I want to be. Putting my faith and my life into God's hands has proven to be a wonderful thing for me. I worry a whole lot less and I know that no matter what, if I remain faithful, my life will work out just how God planned all along and I will be able to live with him again someday.

How I live my faith

I attend church at my local singles ward. I don't currently have a calling because I am going to be serving a mission soon. I love to teach class lessons and learn more about the gospel for myself through teaching these lessons. Before I started attending the singles ward though, I was a teacher for the sunbeams which are the 3-4 year old children.
