Hi I'm Tami

I'm a mother of three. I'm a student. I'm an online educator and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a mother of three children. I'm going to graduate school at the University of Georgia. I love sports, including college football, basketball, and lacrosse. I enjoy cooking and was a professional cake decorator for several years. I am a total math nerd and occasionally do math in my free time!

Why I am a Mormon

Being a Mormon gives me great purpose in my life. Knowing where I came from, why I'm here and where I'm going allows me to live my life in a way that is pleasing to my Heavenly Father. I know that I lived with my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ before I was born. We have all chosen to live on the Earth to be tried and tested. This is how we learn and grow. After this life, we will return to live again. When I think of things this way it makes hard times a little easier.

How I live my faith

I'm currently responsible for the young women ages 12-18. I have several other women who help me teach Sunday lessons as well as provide meaningful activities for these girls on Wednesday nights. Working with them is great. It gives me the opportunity to teach and mentor them in the gospel of Jesus Christ. I'm also an active member of our community. I participate in the booster clubs at the high school as well as help out at our local middle school.

How are modesty and chastity related? How can parents teach their children to be modest in dress, language and behavior?

I work with the teenagers in our church and I have three teenagers of my own, this is very important. Modesty is very important. Dressing in a modest way reflects how you feel about yourself. If your shirts have sleeves, your shorts are down to your knees, you are showing that you respect yourself and expect others to respect you. You don't need attention because of what you're wearing! When you show this type of respect for yourself, you will uphold those moral standards that keep you on track to live a chaste life. Show more Show less
