Hi I'm Tanya Espinoza

My Name is Tanya Espinoza. I'm a student currently. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hello Everyone! I am a student in Massage Therapy, I want to help those in need of good touch and have clients understand what good touch feels like. Studying to be a massage therapist has improved my way of life, it has helped me to understand people allot more, and I am soo blessed to be a part of this experience! I believe that this life needs to be fulfilled with hard work and effort in order to get what you want or need. You wont get answers from staying on the Computer all day looking up Bollywood videos or Comedy sketches, or just wasting time around the house! Yes, I am guilty of this. So I have developed good habits of reading more, watching less t.v, socializing at church events. Trying to be strong and courageous in everything I do! When I am done with School I plan on Serving a Mission, I have the will to serve and to do Lord's work. I've been a member all my life, but my faith and testimony grows more everyday! I'm the 6th of 8 children. I have a wonderful Mom who is my Supporter in everything. My family and I have been through trials but we manage to keep looking forward. And I am blessed to have such a family and to have such a cute and sweet Brindle Boxer!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Church. But like anyone, I had my ups and downs. I always knew that this Church was true no matter what I did. I know the Gospel is to be true through significant experiences, such as that burning heart feeling when you receive an answer, and to know that the Book of Mormon is true! If I were not living the commandments I'd be doing something else right now. being LDS creates structure in life when you practice good habits and teaches to love yourself and to love others as God loves you. The Gospel is a perfect love. God loves us soo much that he wants us to come back to him and has given us tools to do so. And knowing that we have a living prophet today to guide us. The gospel is a reflection of everything I do in my life. And I love how it helps us to see potential in each other.

How I live my faith

How I live my faith is by reading the Scriptures everyday and doing my best to pray on time everyday! And too never be too tired to pray! I try to be a Missionary everywhere I go. School, work, Family, friends, or mere acquaintances I meet on the bus. I know that serving others is way to be happy. And living the faith brings happiness. So serving others means to be happy. You want the people you encounter to be happy just like you are, so it just all makes sense! I also do my best to read other church related books and to take notes and to study them. I'm not the brightest thinker, so taking notes is a huge part of my life! I also listen to church hymns and blast it in my house because when it is full blast feels like you can feel more of the spirit flourishing in the house. I try to stay close with my siblings, my Mom, and dog. Giving some time to family strengthens me everyday! I am also a Ward Missionary in my ward, and I do my best to visit teach.
