Hi I'm Tamsen

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am originally from Colorado, but currently live in Arizona with my husband and four young children. I have always enjoyed singing, and met my husband 15 years ago through a song and dance performing group in college. I am a stay at home mom, and love watching my kids discover and learn new things each day. My hobbies include running, cooking, blogging about my life and family, taking pictures, and spending time with friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church, but truly became converted when I developed a personal testimony of the Savior and His Atonement while in college. These experiences gave me the desire to serve the Lord, and I was blessed to serve a four month service mission in the States, as well as a full-time (18 month) mission to Norway. My husband and I have built our marriage and life centered on the gospel, and we have been greatly blessed. I know that the Lord loves each of us and that we are all God's children.

How I live my faith

I have a passion for teaching, and have had the opportunity to teach the gospel to new converts, women of all ages, youth, and children. I love teaching my own children, and try to share my testimony and faith-building experiences often. I know that how I live and what I do will be a greater influence on my family and friends than anything I could ever say. I believe we are instruments in the Lord's hands when we try to build, lift, and comfort each other.
