Hi I'm Tia

I'm the 2nd oldest of 10 kids. Homeschool mother of 2. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a small country town where everyone knew everyone. I was able to to involved in all the sports and other school activities. I was able to go to college and earn my associates degree before I become a mother. Now I am able to stay home and homeschool our daughter and son. I enjoy traveling, playing volleyball, blogging, going out with friends and being with my family. And of course spending time on facebook and pinterest!

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, but still there came a time when I had to choose for myself to continue to follow what I had been taught or forget about it. I have always felt happy and comfortable at church and learning about the teachings of Jesus. I remember praying to know if the things I had been reading, and if the Book of Mormon is true. The feeling came to me of, "you have always known it is true." I didn't get a tangible sign, but a warm, comforting feeling inside. And that was my answer. Life is hard and difficult, but knowing that I am a daughter of God and He wants what is best for me helps me make it through hard time. I don't need to know all the answers of the universe. I just need to know that God loves me, and we are lead by a prophet of God. As long as I do my best and follow the prophet, I will be okay.

How I live my faith

I am privileged to work with the young women (ages 12-18) in my church. I've helped organized camping trips and weekly activities where the girls can have fun and also learn new skills. I also get to be with them every Sunday where we learn how to apply the scriptures in our lives and how to "come unto Christ." Besides giving a few hours every week of my time to the young women in our church, I also am able to visit with various women on a monthly basis. Every month I look forward to my time to chat with ladies from our church in their homes, or sometimes at the gym or over lunch. I get to receive advice from women older than me and have children older than my own or what works and what doesn't with raising kids. Through these visits I have come to get to know other women and their families in our church, which helps me to feel like I belong and have friends.
