Hi I'm Irina Tarasova

I was born in Kherson, Ukriane. I am a yoga intructor. I am a Mormon!!

About Me

I am 37 years old. I love yoga. I studied yoga at the sports club in 2010. I am a mother of 2 children.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because my whole life changed that day that I decided to live by the teachings of the Church. Of course, I understand that I still have a long way to go, but everyday I learn and it gives me joy to know God.

How I live my faith

I met the missionaries in 2008 when I was getting divorced and I was left with my 2 young children. The missionaries helped me watch my kids when I was studying english at the church. My kids played in the kids room with the sister missionaries. But I was not quite ready for baptism. Seven years later I again met with the missionaries, who invited me back to english practice. Within 6 months, I was baptized on the 20th of April. Then I stopped coming to church. Within another six months I was at church once and heard the members at church share their testimonies. I made the decision to follow the teachings of the Book of Mormon and I overcame my sins and changed. Now I come to sacrament meeting every week and I read the Book of Mormon. Within a week of doing this, I was praying and heard a voice that told me, "I will bless you with the Holy Ghost." Then I felt peace and joy. I understood what the Sisters were telling me when they said that I would feel peace. And I still feel that peace today. I am glad to live and say, "I am a Mormon!"
