Hi I'm Tasha

I grew up in Arizona, I love to write, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a Senior in High School, so after this year I'll be off to college. I'm a huge fan of reading books and have been since young because of that I've started writing my own books and have published two books: "The Dream Prison" and "The Rise of Grimm". I love collecting quotes and other things that I find funny and amusing to pin onto my board for reference to dialogue for characters. One of my favorite quotes are "I thought about being sane, but this seemed like more fun". Besides writing and reading, I got a drum set recently and have been teaching myself how to play. I'm not exactly good, but it's fun none-the-less. I also love watching movies, especially Marvel movies! They are amazing! Well, I don't know what else to put about me, so we'll call this good!

Why I am a Mormon

I was brought up in this church, but it took a while for me to actually gain a testimony of my own and not just go because "my mom was making me". I'd have to say that my testimony gained root during my first two years of Girl's Camp. My first year was the first time that the value of virtue was added to the Personal Progress system and the spirit could be felt so strongly as all of the girls signed this flag that we would uphold this new value. The most spiritual part of camp is always the testimony meeting, but I'm sad to admit that I slept through it my first year which is why my second year also had such a large impact on me. It was my first testimony meeting with all of the people around my age. We were out in the bitter cold (to make sure some one didn't fall asleep... yeah, they moved locations for the meeting 'cause of me) and the testimony's were super strong. I've bared my testimony during church as a kid multiple times, but never really thought over the years. This was my first testimony where I truly felt that what I was saying was true and that this is the Church of Jesus Christ. After that the next defining moment for me would be when I was 15 and my mom got a new job. This career moved us from Arizona to Europe. The move was huge! The thing that got to me most though was the decrease in Mormons. In Arizona everyone at least knows of this religion and it was "going with the crowd" for the most part to be Mormon. Now I was the only one in my grade. Standing up for my faith, helped me realize how much I truly believe it is real and I hope to be a great example for my younger siblings and friends.

How I live my faith

I've been raised as a Mormon and love this church and believe it's true and I participate in activities as much as I can. I'm a young women (in the Laurel presidency) and have helped run many of the youth activities and teach lessons in both church and during mutual. Recently, I've written the play and directed Road Show for our ward. The theme was "through service you can feel love" and I wrote that message through a parody of Frozen.
