Hi I'm Tiffany

I'm a math tutor, a teaching assistant, a college student, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a senior in college at BYU-Idaho. I love all forms of art. I'm currently finishing up a Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies degree in Statistics (with a computer science emphasis) and a minor in Marriage & Family Studies. When I'm finished, the plan is to attend graduate school and work towards a Master's degree in Statistics. I would like to teach statistics and/or family courses. My dream is to become a mother and a statistician. Unlike many of my LDS friends, I am an only child and the only LDS member in my family. It's sometimes very hard because it's not just the world that's pressuring me, it's often times my own family, to do things against the LDS beliefs. It's also difficult because I am always aware that I must be a good example, therefore I need to make careful and wise decisions. I love to read! Currently my favorite fiction books have been dystopian novels, but lately I've spent most of my time reading textbooks for classes. I used to do a lot of theatre productions in middle and high school. I still love them, but I haven't had the time to participate anymore. I enjoy watching movies too--any kind really, especially scary movies or comedy. Because I'm an only child, I have a cat that I absolutely adore like a best friend or child. I grew up with her and wouldn't trade her for anything!

Why I am a Mormon

When I was younger I attended a different church and there came a point in Sunday School when we talked about prophets. After that lesson I couldn't understand why God would leave us without a prophet for today... I felt like we didn't matter. Several years later when I started High School I met a friend who happened to be a Mormon. We became good friends and I asked lots of questions. Finally I began the discussions with the Sister Missionaries where I learned about the prophet we have on Earth today. Ever since then I have realized that God didn't leave us alone without any direction. I know of the truth of this gospel and of our Heavenly Father's love. He would never, ever leave us. I am so thankful that I was able to learn about His truths.

How I live my faith

I attend Brigham Young University - Idaho! The Spirit is definitely alive there. I decided to attend college there because it would be a great place of support for me. (When I first applied, I'd only been a member for 1 year.) I also attend Institute, a class that's held once a week on various gospel topics-usually a book in the scriptures-and I participate in as many ward activities as I can. Despite turning 21 this year, I keep the Word of Wisdom by not drinking. I am studying Marriage & Family as my major and plan to use my knowledge to help others understand the importance of family and the importance of having an Eternal Family.

What do Mormons believe about family?

Family is essential to Heavenly Father's Plan of Happiness. A family consists of a mother and father, who have been married, and their children. When a husband and wife are sealed together through a sacred ordinance in the temple, their family will be able to be together eternally... death will not "do them part." Show more Show less
