Hi I'm Tiffany

I love music, family, and laughing. I'm always up for hiking, dancing, and learning, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a college student aiming for a music major. I teach piano and music theory to little kids. I LOVE Music!! It is my life, my escape, my joy. When I play the piano, see others play, sing, dance, etc. I'm just captivated! I feel that God has given me an ability to really gain a deeper message behind the score. I believe there is a story behind every composition. I grew to love music through my mother. She is an amazing piano teacher - she doesn't just teach you how to read music, but how to understand it and love it! I want to be like her when I grow up! ;) My family is everything to me. I am so grateful to have the father, mother, and siblings I have. They have taught me so much and I'm grateful for the bond we have together! Other than the basics, I love fun spontaneous activities. Camping, hiking, dancing, skiing, and anything that helps us enjoy the beautiful things God has given us.

Why I am a Mormon

Many people have asked me "Are you Mormon because you grew up that way?" I owe a great deal of my conversion to my parents, yes. However, I am a Mormon because of prayer. I have prayed many many times about the things I have been taught, and I have received answers, a feeling and impression through the Spirit that the teachings are true. I am LDS (Latter-day Saint, aka: Mormon) because it is the literal Restoration of Christ's Primitive Church. Why wouldn't I want to be a part of that? An organization with the same Primitive doctrines and teaching recorded in the Bible and Book of Mormon (i.e. prophets, 12 apostles, priesthood, and much much more), now that is a gem! Ultimately, I have chosen this faith because I have found a greater purpose in life. I have found a deeper understanding of why I am here on the Earth, and who I can become. Because I have a purpose here, I have direction in life and for eternity. Knowing this has brought me a greater peace, happiness, and joy!

How I live my faith

I try to live my Faith by doing things Christ would do. I am nowhere near perfect, but I can try to serve others, uplift them, etc. The Savior has also taught us to pray daily, study the scriptures, and keep the commandments. As I do those things, my faith is strengthened and I understand more of who He wants me to be. I know that if I always strive to follow my Savior, Jesus Christ, I can't go wrong. I also strive to share my faith with others. If you've ever had a Mormon want to share their faith with you, Good! :) Christ has asked us to do that, hasn't He? I find joy in watching others find purpose of life in the gospel of Christ. I try to let my faith be the source of my actions, and sharing the Gospel is one way to do that.

Why don’t women hold the priesthood in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints? How do Mormon women lead in the Church?

Tiffany
A simple answer I have found to this question is that this is the way Christ ran His Primitive Church. He had 12 male apostles. So do we. We do as the Lord did and follow His continuous direction. The true question is, do we as Latter-day Saints truly hold the same priesthood authority as Christ and His leaders did? I have prayed to find that the answer is yes. It is up to you to pray and find that answer for yourself. I feel, as a woman in this Church, very loved, respected, honored, and more. I do not feel hidden or unfairly treated. I know that I have great faith to work miracles as well, under the right and holy direction of our Father in Heaven. I can receive revelation for myself and those I may have stewardship over (posterity, etc). I look up to the women who lead in our Church today. We have a worldwide womens' organization. Because of this organization, I find personal direction as a daughter of God in this time of life. I know wherever I go in the world, I will find a friend in this organization. I will always be grateful for it. Show more Show less
