Hi I'm Tauni

I'm an artist, lover of the mountains, and a current full time sister missionary in the Mississippi, Jackson Mission.

About Me

I'm at Graphic Design student studying at Brigham Young University Idaho, where I can study with others that share my same faith and values. I'm taking a year and a half break from school to dedicate myself to the Lord on a full-time mission in Mississippi.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe in Christ. He lived and died for all of us because He loves us more than we can imagine. He knows what it's like to suffer every pain, both physical and emotional. I know that Heavenly Father and His son, Jesus Christ, speak to their Prophet. President Thomas S. Monson, the Prophet on the earth today, has been called of God and he delivers warnings and commandments from God. I love the book of Mormon because it is another testament of Christ and through it we can learn how to live like Him, the perfect example. I love this Gospel and I know it is true.

How I live my faith

The second week of college I was thrown straight into the Relief Society presidency which was a little crazy to me because I had hardly ever been in relief society and the other girls in the presidency were much older than me and two had even served missions. I felt a little overwhelmed and out of place at first but as I served with those wonderful women I learned how to truly serve and love those you serve. Each week as a presidency we visited each apartment of girls in our relief society just to chat with them and see how their weeks went, at the time it seemed so simple but looking back it helped us to create a more united relief society based on trust because the girls understood that we truly loved them and cared about even the minor details of their lives like boys and homework. From this experience I realized that to be a great leader or missionary you must care for those that you teach because their much more willing to listen to what you have to say when they know that you genuinely love them.
