Hi I'm Tani

I am a wife, a mother, a lover of all things creative, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

More than anything, I love my husband, daughter, and baby boyl. They make my world so beautiful.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents are Mormon, and I was raised in the church. However, that does not mean I never had to gain my own testimony. Let me explain, by the time I was 18, I had moved 23 times. My beliefs and my values were challenged in a different way, in every location. The most significant way I was challenged was socially. I was extremely insecure, and at times awkward and confused. But every night I would read either the Bible or the book of Mormon, and it is interesting to note that during the most difficult times, I would turn to a scripture that gave me comfort, which comfort was specific to the challenge I was going through. At that time, I could feel the love of God wrapped around me. I was hurting inside and lonely, but I was not alone. Very gradually, I learned to trust those feelings of peace and comfort, and seek to have them with me constantly. As I did so, I was guided in my paths, and blessed beyond what I thought I deserved. Those same feelings of peace and comfort which testified to me during the difficult times growing up, that Heavenly Father loves me, have also testified to me that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (the Mormon church) is the true church.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing my best to treat people with honor, respect, and love, especially my family. I try to follow the guidance of the Spirit in my daily life. To do this, I need to be close to the Spirit, so I read my scriptures and I pray daily. I am not perfect, and I make mistakes, but I continually try to be better. In short, I live my faith by trying to follow the example of Jesus Christ, who visited, helped, taught, and served others. He lived his life proving that helping other people is the most important thing we can do.
