Hi I'm Tabitha

I am a Missionary, I am a student, I am a teacher, I am a sinner, I am a realist and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently 20 years old. I am the second oldest of 5 children. I grew up in the suburbs of Georgia. I spent my youth playing with my siblings and camping with my family. I'm serving a full time, 18 month mission in the Irvine, California area. My hopes are to study pharmaceuticals at the University of Tennessee. I love learning and teaching whatever may come to anyone who will listen. I like to hike, travel, and go to baseball games. I cant cook even if I tried. I have never had a green thumb.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints, but I am a convert. I was baptized at the age of 8. I went to church every Sunday. I truly was the cliche of a standard Mormon. That was until I was about 16. I began to hang out with the wrong crowd. And I made a lot of wrong choices. I had read about the atonement and I wanted to know what it was and how it helped people. Turns out the atonement was a second chance. Christ had died for all of our sins and everything that we are going through he had gone through and felt for himself. I began to read the book of Mormon and see what else there was. I read story after story and the more I read I began to feel the spirit. It felt like a wave of comfort and forgiveness that had washed over me. I prayed and felt the same feeling. As soon as I ended that prayer I knew that if someone could forgive that easily, and love that much to the extent of a physical warmth and comfort it had to be true. So I continued to pray as often as I could and I tried to read my scriptures as often as I could. Once I got that surety that Christ does live and he does love every one of us unconditionally, there was no turning back from there. I knew that the church of Jesus Christ of latter say saints is the one true church on earth and I will never go back to who I was before the gospel of Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by teaching children between the ages of 8 and 11 about the gospel of the church. I live my faith by telling my testimony each and every month to anyone who will listen. I try to read my scriptures each and every day even though I may not succeed. I live my faith through walking in the Lord's footsteps And smiling at each and every person I may come across.
