Hi I'm Tamari

I am an actress, singer, mother of 3 and wife to my sweetheart, Roger. I enjoy sharing my talents! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up mostly in California with a dash of Idaho and Utah thrown in. I went to college majoring in Theater Arts and I met my husband there. After School we moved to New Jersey for 8 years and did lots of theater and had our 3 children. Currently living in Utah. I love to sing and do theater. I especially love sharing my talents in the church. My favorite thing to do is to develop firesides for the youth of the church in hopes that I can help them gain stronger testimonies.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been a member of this church but I still had to gain my own testimony and not rely on my mom for what she believed. I grew up in a single parent home, but my mother was faithful in going to church. I always felt very happy attending church, seminary and youth activities. I LOVED Girls Camp. I remember the testimony meetings at camp were some of the most intense of my life. My mom was very protective of me so I think naturally when I went to college I "went off the path" a bit. I was inactive for a time and found that my life was not as happy as it had been in my youth. I decided to go back to church and a gradual change came over me. There have been highs and lows over the years, but as I exercise my faith, read my scriptures and pray with a sincere heart daily I grow stronger and stronger. I know without a doubt that this is the true church of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I do a lot of theater in the community and I find that I can be a great example to those around me. Many people in theater have different views on life and different lifestyles and I have had some great talks with theater friends who want to know more about the gospel. I have learned to not judge those around me and not to gossip. It is best to be kind and generous and love people no matter what. I find people respond better when they know I am not scrutinizing them. I just let the Spirit guide and if I need to say something or stand up for something I try and do it by the Spirit. I mostly work with the youth of the church. I have served in Primary and Young Women in many different callings. Currently I am serving as Wolf Den Leader and Relief Society Chorister. I have learned that all callings no matter how "small" are significant. We have a chance each week to touch the lives of people in profound ways. I have always tried to do things by the book. I follow the manuals given to us to the letter. It always makes things run smoother for me. I pray for inspiration in special circumstances and I am always guided. My family is crucial to my life. I feel my responsibility as a mother and wife is the core of my existence here on earth. I am trying everyday to be a better mom and control my temper and teach by the Spirit. I have found that family scripture study, prayer and Family Home Evening are wonderful things to do in the home and when they are done on a regular basis things run so much better.

How can we stop the spread and influence of pornography?

Right away we can take precautions in the home. Make sure there are security measures put in place for the TV and Computer. Having TVs and Computers in very public places of the home will help and putting rules in place of when family members can be on the computer and watch TV. Children need to be taught young what is appropriate dress and how we should have respect for our bodies and for others. We are literal children of God and not to be objectified. Show more Show less
