Hi I'm Tonya

Im a mother, a wife, a student, a teacher, a buisness owner and Im a Mormon!

About Me

 The oldest of 7 children. The mother of 5 beautiful children and one adorable grandson. Mother, wife, teacher, student and buisness owner. I wear alot of hats...staying busy keeps me young. I love music, writting poetry and playing with my children. I love helping others and doing service projects. I love to garden and doing home improvments and decorating my home. I also have 2 dogs that I love, 1Shepards and 1 Miniture Schnauzer and 6 alpaca's..my babies. I love all crime shows like CSI. I guess my secret passion is to be a detective... I love all Ghost hunting or Mystery shows. Though I do not watch HORROR movies..YUCK! I love to sing...You can say I am an out of work County Singer...I chose to be a mother instead. I was still singing in clubs until my second child was little but it was just not the life I wanted. Late nights filled with smoke and drunks..No fun So I gave it up. Family is more important to me than anything.I enjoy spending time with my family and close friends. I am very active in my church, "The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints". I have the privledge to work with the youth of our church, namely the young women ages 12-18 years old. They are an inspiration to me and my love for them runs deep. I also get to work with the boyscouts of our church in the same age groups and as with the girls enjoy getting to share with them my knowledge of the gospel and that our Heavenly Father loves them and wants for them to find real joy in their lives. I am a girl scout daisy leader and serve in our County Girl Scout Service Unit. I run a home daycare where I teach preschool to several toddlers, which has given me the ability expand my family and to be home with my children for many years. It also allows me to homeschool my youngest 3. This is our 1st year homeschooling and its a huge transition. I also work in Real Estate Part time and look forward to making that a full time career. I am a full time college student again going back to school full time to finish my degree in Business finance.I plan to go on to masters in teaching. We will see what the future holds for me. I love learning all I can. I guess I will be a student the rest of my life. Needless to say I stay pretty busy!

Why I am a Mormon

 Im a Mormon because I believe in the teachings of Christ's gospel. Mormon doctrine makes total sense to me. It explains where I come from, where Im going and how to get there. It explains what is important to my eternal salvation. It keeps me grounded and helps me be well rounded. It teachs me to be the best I can be while I give to others that are in need. There are so many simple reasons why Im proud to be called a Mormon!

How I live my faith

Living my faith is just a way of life....I am constantly learning new things, studing from wonderful books. My scriptures are treasure to me. I have read, studied and taught the Bible and the Book of Mormon in depth. They are my roadmaps in this life. I teach my beliefs to my children and I share my testimony of Christ and his church with my friends and those I feel lead to share. I serve in many areas of my church. I love being an active member and serving where ever Im needed. Im currently involved with the youth of the church. I love this job. I think I learn more from these teens than I can ever teach. They uplift me and I love reminding them of where they come from and that they are sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father. Living my faith is easy to do....Im just being ME!
