Hi I'm Tammie Willis!

I'm a Wife, a Mother and a Grandmimi...when I am not playing trains with the grandboys, I'm an interior designer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a woman who loves to learn about the humanity around me and sharing smiles that can perpetuate the joy that life has in store for all of us. I have learned through this life's journey, that smiles are what help you through tough times and as a cancer survivor, I understand how very important each smile is! I have been blessed with two fabulous daughters, one beautiful step-daughter and two amazing step-sons. They have added such joy to my life and I am grateful for the people they have become. I'm an award winning artist who "paints" with furnishings" now and helps encourage the creativity in my young grandchildren...they just make me laugh! ( I ought to be writing down everything they say because the grandboys and twin great-granddaughters would be a perfect sitcom vehicle!)...maybe I should be a writer?

Why I am a Mormon

As a teenage Episcopalian, I had such doubts about what a true religion was. I knew there was a loving Heavenly Father, but I could NOT comprehend the "Trinity". It made absolutely no sense to me. I searched through Teen Life and other organizations at my high-school, but did not have the feeling that the truth lay in any of those groups. I knew some Mormons in high school, but my parents forbid me to talk to them...my parents were well known "Mormonhaters." In my first year of college, however, I met a Mormon young man and we became engaged. He introduced me to the missionaries and I asked them right off about the Godhead. They explained to me about the concept of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost being three different beings and I knew immediately that I had found the truest gospel on earth. After much praying, I was baptized three weeks later..that was forty-three years ago! My testimony of this church has grown over the years by watching how Priesthood blessings have touched the lives of my family in times of sickness and grief. I've seen miracles based on those blessings. I have found joy in serving and I have found peace in temple worship.

How I live my faith

I am currently a temple ordinance worker at the Mesa, Arizona temple and love serving the members of the church when they attend the temple. The temple is the House of Lord and partaking in the service of others gives me sweet peace in my very hectic-paced life. I have, in the past, taught the youth and have participated in giving lessons to the ladies of the church, but the best way that I have lived my faith is by being an example to those with whom I work or play. I don't believe in being insulated within my faith, but quite the opposite! There are enough misconceptions about being a Mormon and I am only too happy to dispell them...being a quiet example has worked best.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Tammie Willis!
When I was contemplating converting to "Mormonism" I felt confused and uncertain. My immediate family were accusing me of joining a cult and threatening to disown me. I just didn't know what to do. In desperation one evening, I sincerely prayed to my Father in Heaven for an answer. As soon as my prayer had ended, I felt a wonderful feeling of confirmation come over me...a personal revelation...and I knew immediately that this sweet feeling of warmth and peace was what I had been pleading for. I knew in that moment that this was and is the true gospel of Jesus Christ and that He is my Savior. My testimony of this true gospel has only grown over the years. I have never hesitated or looked back and I am always happy to share that sweet memory of conversion with those who ask. Show more Show less
