Hi I'm Tarryn Aubuchon

I'm an American living in England. I'm a student. I'm an older sister. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I come from a family of four. I have the best two younger siblings a sister could ask for. I also have the coolest mom ever. I am a student at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. I enjoy dancing. I assist classes for the University and teach at a local dance studio. I am a people person. I am a family person. I am a simple person.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because this gospel brings me happiness. The Book of Mormon gives me answers to questions. Attending Sacrament and other church meetings on Sundays reminds me that our Heavenly Father sacrificed His only begotten son for all of us to be here today. When I pray, I do not always get answers right away. And that is ok because that means God loves me and trusts me. He wants me to make decisions for myself. Then I usually feel peace if I am making the right decision, or I will feel uneasy if I feel impressed to reevaluate my plan. Heavenly Father loves me, and you, and all of His sons and daughters. God works in mysterious ways, but I know He has a plan for us all. I feel safe and protected knowing and applying the principles and doctrines of the gospel in my everyday life. I have learned patience. I have made wiser decisions because of this gospel. This gospel brings me joy.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a full time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the England London South Mission. I'm serving a mission because in the hardest times, the gospel is the one thing that never fails to bring me happiness, peace & joy. How could I not share something so amazing? I love my Savior and am blessed with this opportunity to be His representative. This is the truth, and I will dedicate myself for a year and a half to share my testimony of the gospel I love! And I plan to share this beautiful gospel every day without a name tag after serving in England. I have had Presidency callings in Relief Society and been part of the activities committee organizing events in my Young Single Adult ward too.

Why is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints called Mormons or Mormonism?

Tarryn Aubuchon
We are the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Many think of a saint as a holy one basically in a state of perfectness. As a member of this church, I can tell you we are not perfect. We make mistakes on a daily basis, but our gospel is perfect. Heavenly Father's plan is set up perfectly (as we follow His commandments, we are set up to have a blessed, happy life). I would say that Latter-day Saints are sinners who keeps on trying. We have to be patient and able to recognize that our Savior, Jesus Christ, wants to heal us as we keep on trying.“We are frequently called Mormons. It is a nickname given us because we believe in the Book of Mormon as the word of God, a book which goes hand in hand with the Bible, becoming a second witness for Jesus Christ.” Also, I believe we are Latter-day Saints, because the Book of Mormon was written for our days, for the latter-days. As we read the Book of Mormon daily, we will understand that these gospel principles can help us in our current trials and hardships. I am a Mormon. I am a Christian. A Christian admires Jesus Christ so sincerely and so fervently that our whole life goes out to Him n an aspiration to be like him. Mormons are Christians. Show more Show less

What is the Law of Chastity?

Tarryn Aubuchon
The Law of Chastity requires hat sexual relations be reserved for marriage between a man and a woman. As you live the Law of Chastity will help you enjoy the blessings of the gospel of Jesus Christ through the influence of the Holy Ghost, develop greater self-respect as you exercise self-control, have greater confidence in your relationships, and increase in love for those around you.To keep the law of chastity, you must replace undesirable thoughts, words, and actions with wholesome ones. Regardless of what you have done in the past, great blessings are available to you if you begin now to live the law of chastity. Elder Dale G. Renlund, Of the Seventy, said, "God cares a lot more about who we are and who we are becoming than about who we once were. He cares that we keep on trying." Show more Show less
