Hi I'm Tiffany

I work at Taco Bell, supporting my husband through college. I like to exercise, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife working my husband through college. I love to exercise, read, and paint. I enjoy sharing the gospel with people, so that they might find the same joy in it that I have found!

Why I am a Mormon

The knowledge that this Church has provided me with has given me reason to not only live, but to enjoy living. I know that I am loved by a Father in Heaven, and that no matter what happens in my life, Jesus Christ can help me get through it. Christ's understanding of my problems range from helping me through a stressful day at work to comforting me about a death of a family member. My faith in Him helps me be optimistic about anything that may come my way. I am confident in who I am, what I'm doing and where I'm going, because I have the Spirit of the Lord to help me make the decisions that will bring me and my family the most happiness. I am a better wife, sister, daughter, co-worker, even a stranger at the grocery store, because I am happy, and that happiness enables me to lighten other people's days. I constantly strive to be an example to others by living the principles of this Church, because hopefully by doing that I will be able to bless other people's lives with the knowledge that has given me my reason to press on: I am not alone. I have a purpose for being here, and I am LOVED! Eternally and unconditionally. Nobody is perfect, and that includes members of this Church. The Church itself, however, and the things taught in it, IS perfect. I have found that when I follow the guidance and teachings offered, I am happy. I do not feel confined to rules; contrarily, I feel liberated by my ability to make choices in my life that aren't being affected or restricted due to consequences of immoral actions. I have felt Christ's love and the influence of His spirit in my life, and I know that this is His true church. Being a member has brought me more happiness than I ever would have been able to imagine. I still have hard times; nobody is devoid from trials. They are a necessary part of this life. But knowing that Christ lives, and that because of His Atonement He can comfort me, I am able to press on with hope and faith.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by finding opportunities to serve others around me. I try daily to be a positive influence in the lives of those around me, hopefully bringing the light of Christ into their lives. When I take the time and effort to help someone other than myself, whether it be my husband, a neighbor, co-worker, or stranger, it not only gives me a greater sense of purpose in life but also makes me feel closer to my Savior.

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

In some ways, Mormon women are not much different than any other wife or mother in the world. We pay bills, grocery shop, do dishes and laundry, etc. However, we also strive to keep Christ the center of our homes. We try, as do all faithful members of the Church, to be humble, understanding, loving, and faithful. We strive to keep the Spirit of the Lord in our homes, so that our children may learn to recognize it and be able to learn who Christ is, and what His teachings are. Concerning equality between men and women, neither is more important than the other. Both are key roles in the plan that the Lord has made. Those roles, however, are different for each gender. Different, but both just as important as the other. We are taught that "gender is an essential characteristic of individual premortal, mortal, and eternal identity and purpose." Show more Show less
