Hi I'm Tanya

Grew up on a farm. Loved playing the piano, sewing, and making porcelain dolls. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Right now, I choose to be a full time "Granny-Nanny" so that my young grandsons can stay at home as opposed to a day care. I live in the mountains above Denver, and it is a long time dream come true. There are bear, deer, elk, foxes, coyotes, numerous birds and other small critters. A friend and I love creating porcelain dolls - it is such great therapy. I also love sewing - making clothes, quilts, and outfits for dolls. Since I was 7, I've enjoyed playing the piano, and I also play the organ. Many years ago, I graduated from the University as a Registered Dental Hygienist. I have also spent alot of time teaching ballet classes, and supported my 3 lovely daughters and myself for many years being a "balloonatic". (Made balloon deliveries, often in costume, did singing telegrams, and decorated for parties and weddings. Having a good time IS my job!) Life is good, and I'm a grateful mama and grandma.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into an active LDS family and was baptized at age 8. Never had any question about the truth of what I was taught, but as I became a teenager, I knew I needed to follow the prophet's counsel, and gain my own testimony. It was during those late high school years that I committed to study the gospel and earnestly pray to know for myself. Over the next several years, I had repeated confirming experiences that the principals of the restored gospel are true, that Joseph Smith truly was the prophet of the restoration, and that our Lord and Savior continues to guide us through his prophets and apostles today. I am so very grateful for his guidance in my life.

How I live my faith

Visiting teaching has always been a favorite calling of mine. I have made lifelong friends with many sisters by getting to know them through these visits. It's also alot of fun serving and participating in projects in the community. One of the best Thanksgivings my daughters and I spent was serving a free dinner at a town meeting hall.
