Hi I'm Tara

I am a hair stylist, a musician, and a dancer. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a student at BYU-I and I'm majoring in business management. I spend a lot of time dancing (mostly ballroom dancing) and hope to make it my minor. I love music with all my heart and have played the harp for ten years. I am a professional cosmetologist and I love helping people gain confidence by feeling and looking beautiful. Most of all I love the gospel of Jesus Christ!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and have been a member all my life. The gospel has been such a great blessing in my life. I gained a testimony through seeing my mother's strong testimony. She was the most influential person in the growth of my personal testimony. Thanks to her, I know that true happiness can be found through our Heavenly Father's great Plan of Salvation. We all make mistakes and experience regrets. This can be emotionally taxing and sometimes devastating. However, through the atonement of Jesus Christ we are able to repent and progress to be the best we can be. Christ has made it possible for me to have hope at all times. Hope that things will always work out for the best in the eternal perspective, hope that I can always repent of my mistakes, and hope that I can become like Christ.

How I live my faith

I am living my faith by serving a full-time mission in the Mississippi Jackson Mission! When I was younger I never thought I would serve a mission, but now that I'm here, I know that I am exactly where I need to be! I will never regret this decision. The Gospel is so good and it is for everyone! I am so blessed to be able to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with the wonderful people of the South!
