Hi I'm Tarah VanSchouwenburg

I grew up in San Diego, California. I was taught the gospel at the age of ten and baptized on Easter Sunday. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Music is the one thing that can make me happy, no matter what kind of mood I am in. I play trumpet and am actually a music education major. I have played trumpet since I was in sixth grade and I love it so much. I have been in marching band, jazz band, wind symphony, orchestra and brass quintets.

Why I am a Mormon

I never was taught as a child about the gospel, but when I was ten years old, missionaries came knocking at the door. My grandma was already a member, but I was never allowed to learn about the gospel. I was baptized on Easter Sunday with my brother. I currently live in a family that is not sealed together in the temple, but I know that I can change my future and the future of my children.

How I live my faith

I teach the 5-6 year old children in my ward. I love the spirit they carry with them and the knowledge and love they have for their Savior.
