Hi I'm Taryn

I am from Arizona and have been called to serve as a missionary in the Washington DC South mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the second youngest of 6 children and an aunt to 6. My parents have been married for 24 years. I am currently working as a nanny and swim coach. I love my jobs and working with children! Some of my favorite things are playing card games with family and friends, going to the beach, and swimming!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know, with all my heart, that it is the only true church on this earth. My Heavenly Father has put situations and people in my life that has helped grow and strengthen my testimony. He loves me and all His children and strives for all of us to come unto Him. I know my Savior, Jesus Christ, lives and loves me. I have felt Him in my life. When I was alone in this world, I felt His hand. He comforted and loved me. He died for me and all mankind. He suffered for us so we can come unto Him and be clean and find true joy. I know Joseph Smith saw God and Jesus Christ. He was persecuted and suffered for this gospel because he knew this was the true church. He translated the Book of Mormon and I am so glad I am able to have a testimony of it. I know, without a doubt, that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. It will bring us peace and knowledge of Christ if we read it. I know we have a prophet of God on this earth. I am thankful for the communication we have with Christ through our prophets and apostles in todays world. In a world that is so dark and lost, the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the only true light. This gospel bring hope, peace, comfort, knowledge, love, and true and everlasting happiness. I know with everything in me that this is the true church and I am so blessed to know of the truth.

How I live my faith

I am a primary teacher to 11 and 12 year olds! I love teaching them, but also learning myself. I find I learn so much by preparing my lessons! I live my faith by going on a mission! I am so excited to serve Gods children. Until I go on my mission, I try to serve in my community and help anyone in need by acts of service and love as Jesus Christ did while here on this earth.
