Hi I'm Temma

I'm a Mormon. I grew up in Orange Park, FL. I worked as a school psychologist before becoming a stay-at-home mom.

About Me

I am a wife and a mother to three children under the age of 4. Before being a stay-at-home mom I studied and worked as a school psychologist. I've always been passionate about helping families and children develop healthy relationships. While I don't currently work as a school psychologist, I hope to be involved in helping children again some day in the future. For now I have personally felt that my job is to be at home with my children. I love the outdoors. I always feel most comfortable when I'm outside exploring nature. Over the past 3 years, my husband and I have seen family members divorce, we have experienced the deaths of two close family members, and we have endured financial and employment uncertainty. But I've never felt closer to my Heavenly Father than I do now.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the Holy Ghost has born witness to me that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is Jesus Christ's restored true church on earth.

How I live my faith

Though my church congregation meets only on Sundays to worship, I try to live as a disciple of Christ at all other times. I try to live a life that I know my Savior would want me to live by how I treat others. I also try to engage in personal, daily scripture study to learn more and become closer to the Savior. By doing this I learn to enjoy each day a little more. I'm a work in progress. I have served in church in several different ways. I have worked with our primary children, taught our youth, helped individuals who were seeking employment, and served in our worldwide women's organization by identifying women and families in need and coordinating how to meet their needs.
