Hi I'm Tiffany-Joy

I'm a daughter, sister, wife, a mother, and a musician. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a busy mother of 3 young children. I enjoy playing with my children, singing and listening to music, finding great places to eat at, catching up with old friends, making crafts, decorating cakes, watching a good tv show with my husband, working out, and baking. My husband and I have moved around a lot since we were married, but we have enjoyed making new friends and exploring each city we have lived in.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were converts to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, so I was "born in to the church". My parents taught me the principles of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and let me choose to follow or not. I know that the principles of this gospel, taught by this church, are true so I choose to live by these principles daily. I know that when I live by these principles I am happier because I am blessed for my obedience. I know that Joseph Smith saw our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ face to face, and that he was later given the responsibility to translate the Book of Mormon. I know the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ, and an account of the early people on the American continent. I feel the love of my heavenly Father daily as I read the scriptures and pray for guidance in all things. I continue to do my best at being the mother that my heavenly Father wants me to be, and to continue to teach my children the gospel of Jesus Christ. I will teach them how to come to their own knowldge that Jesus is the Christ and that he died for all of us so that we can return to God again. I'm a mormon because I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is HIS church, re-established on the earth in these Latter-Days.

How I live my faith

In my local congregation I have been asked to teach the female youth, specifically ages 12-13. I teach them each sunday, and help the other youth leaders with other weekly activities held. In the past I have also helped lead a choir composed of other members in my congregation, in the past I have taught the young children, ages 3-11 music on sundays, I have also taught, along with my husband the little childrens class of 3 year olds. Along with the youth I currently teach I am also asked to visit a few women my age at least once a month and teach them a short lesson on different subjects of the gospel. We call this Visiting teaching, and it is a way to make sure that all the members in our congregations are doing well, and have any special needs met...so no one gets lost "in the crowd".

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Everywhere I look I see evidence that there is a God. Nature in particular shows me this. I love looking at the sky, there is so much beauty there. Sunrise and sunset really speaks to my soul. I feel that the wonderful colors painted across the sky are God's way of showing us his love and that he is aware of us and wants us to know that. Walk into the maternity ward in a hospital and see all the tiny little miracles sleeping with so much peace and beauty. Open up the latest medical journal and read about all the new technological discoveries. Talk to a recent cancer survivor or the survivor of a car accident. These, to me, are all evidences that there is a God. Show more Show less
