Hi I'm Tiffany.

I'm a little bit of this and a little bit of that and a Mormon.

About Me

I am all over the place. And I have been all over the place. I'm a little bit of this and a little bit of that. That describes my personality and my life. I was born in Taiwan. Grew up in the beautiful Hawaii. Best childhood ever! Then my family moved to Georgia during my high school years. Whoa, is right. Drastic change from Hawaii to Georgia. After high school I was determined to leave Georgia so I went to Brigham Young University in Utah for college. I spent summers during college on Long Island, New York, as a nanny for a family with three children. I met my husband in college at BYU. He moved into an apartment with a group of my really good guy friends. He studied economics, and I studied communications with an emphasis in print journalism. We graduated from college together. He found a job in Georgia, so we moved there and been here ever since. We have FOUR super fun daughters. They are exactly two and half years apart with oldest being 8. Becoming a mom has been the most fulfilling thing I have done in my life. It's not always a pretty job, but what a blessing it is to watch them grow and learn new things. I am involved in their schooling, dance classes, and piano lessons. And we love to travel as a family. After I became a mother, I decided to be a full-time mom. But I get my writing satisfaction though blogging and serving as a public affairs specialist for the church. I also enjoy photography, crafting, sewing, and spending time with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I can't say I have explored other religions. I grew up in the Mormon religion since I was 7. But this is not a religion that I blindly follow. I have had many experiences and instances where it was confirmed to me that this was the true church. I have seen miracles performed in my own life that only God could do. I have had many prayers answered. I love that I was able to be married in a temple that allows me to be together with my family forever. It makes a difference in my daily life decisions as I know life is eternal. It brings a perspective into life trials. And although I have never met Joseph Smith Jr. before, I know he was a true man of God. I have learned about him and read the Book of Mormon cover to cover. I have had personal revelation that what I read was completely true. I am also grateful for a prophet here on earth today. He is able to communicate with God and guide the people of the church just as it happened in the Bible.

How I live my faith

Being a Mormon isn't something you only do on Sundays. It's like trying to lose weight. It's not a fad diet, it's a lifestyle change. There's the usual - don't drink alcohol, don't smoke, don't drink tea or coffee, don't do drugs. But I also am modest in the way I dress. I am honest in all my doings. I have an integrity that cannot be removed from me. I try to choose the right each day and have charity in my heart. I believe in the good of others. And I try to be an example of a good Christian for those around me and my children. I also try to teach my children to rise above the world and to stand for what they believe is true. I believe each one of us is God's children and try to treat others that way. I know without a doubt that there is a loving God who wants the best for us. And although there are many trials throughout our lives, He will never leave us and never stop loving us. Trials are there to shape us into better people and to share our experiences with others.
