Hi I'm Tiffany

I'm a designer. I'm a stay-at-home mom. I'm a chocoholic. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to read. I don't love cleaning the bathroom. I love learning. I don't love being the center of attention. I love eating bake goods. I don't love baking. I love where I grew up: Pittsburgh (Go Steelers!). I don't love scary movies. I love my husband and two daughters. I don't love insects.

Why I am a Mormon

I like logic and reason, but these virtues fall short in answering life's toughest questions: What is the purpose of my life? How can I be truly happy? I know the answers to these question are only found in the doctrines of this church. I know this not by logic or reason, but by daily confirmation through the quiet whisperings of the Spirit. I know it by trying to obey the commandments and then receiving the promised blessings. I know it by praying to know it is true and receiving a powerful answer that is as undeniable as it is indescribable. That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by the priorities I set. I fall short often, but the goals are clear and I just keep trying. My first priority is to my Heavenly Father. I try to live His commandments and learn what He would have me do through prayer and scripture study. My next priority is to my family. I have chosen to not work outside my home despite the fact that my husband is a teacher and resources are limited. This allows me the valuable time to love, teach, and nurture my children. Finally, my priority is to serve to others. I serve as a leader to the youth (teenagers) in my ward. I love them and learn much from them. I try to look for those around me that I might help in some way, big or small. I live my faith through maintaining priorities.

What is the Church’s position on abortion?

Recently I received a flyer in the mail encouraging residences to vote against state legislation that gave "fertilized eggs" constitutional rights. I quickly looked at my two beautiful "fertilized eggs," one 4 years old and other 14 months, and thought of the human being that each "fertilized egg" really is. My understanding of the divine nature of each individual allows me to embrace the church's position that, except for cases of rape, incest, or the risk of life to the mother, abortion is contrary to the will and the commandments of God.
