Hi I'm Tiffany

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a stay at home mother with four children ages 18, 16, 13 and 10. Having the opportunity to stay at home with my children has been a wonderful blessing in my life. They bring me immeasurable joy. I volunteer at our elementary school and enjoy helping out in the library there. I love to read. My husband and I have been married 20 years. We enjoy hiking and camping as a family.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon all my life. When I was young, I loved going to church because it felt so good there. My mother was a wonderful example to me of faith by reading her scriptures, praying and bearing her testimony. She passed away when I was 13 and I an so thankful for the blessing of eternal families. My dad stopped going to church so it became up to me if I kept going or not. I loved the Gospel and knew that I needed it in my life. So many people in our church supported me by giving me rides and encouragement to live the Gospel. The knowledge of how much God loved me helped me so much during this time. Now that I am a mother, I am thankful I can pass on this legacy to my own children. Being able to teach them who they are, where they came from and where they are going is so wonderful. To know that even when I can't be with them Heavenly Father is watching over them brings me a lot of peace.

How I live my faith

I have the wonderful opportunity to work with the youth of our church, specifically the 12-13 year old young women. We meet for activities every Wednesday night and have a lesson as part of church on Sunday. Recently I taught a lesson on how we are all children of God and should be treated with love and acceptance. As I prepare for these lessons and teach them, I learn so much more than the young women. I may spend a lot of time working with them and preparing but it is such a blessing in my life. Our church believes strongly in taking care of everyone and helping them to feel that they are watched out for. We are asked if we would be willing to visit the same 3 or 4 women every month. We go with a partner to see how they are doing and talk about what we believe. It is so fun to talk to them and get to know them. And hopefully they know they have someone to turn to if they need help. One person I just write letters to and let her know that someone is thinking of her. I know that taking care of others and in turn having others take care of you is what Jesus would want us to do.
