Hi I'm Tami

I'm a busy crazy working full time mom, wife, military retiree, PhD student, marathoner and a Mormon.

About Me

At work my nickname is Gidget because I always have big ideas and I am almost always happy, I am always involved in something and I am always crazy crazy busy. I am married to my best friend, we have two busy teenage high school children, I retired from the military 3 years ago and now work full time in law enforcement, I run marathons (4 this year), I quilt, I bake and can preserves, I snow ski, and I am working on my PhD in adult learning. I love life to its fullest and I love the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the Great Plan of Happiness and the testimony I have of families. Jesus Christ is my Savior and it is through his atoning sacrifice that I, through repentance, will be forgiven of my sins and have the opportunity to reunite and return to live with God my Father in Heaven. It also means I will be reunited with those I love, with Jesus Christ, my family and my son who died at birth and my two brothers who died in their youth. I am a Mormon because I believe that even though separation brings sadness we will be reunited in happiness.

How I live my faith

Through everyday living and learning and growing in the gospel and throughout life. I live my faith through volunteering in and outside of the church, attending the temple and sharing happiness with others.

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

Mormon women are just like women everywhere with hopes, dreams, goals, fears, and desires. I had the opportunity to serve in the military for 20 years and I have and continue to accomplished many goals in my life. It has only been through the partnership with my husband and the equality in our marriage relationship and in raising our family that these goals have been attained and we have raised two wonderful children together and have a unified family.
