Hi I'm Tiffany

I'm a full-time mom, the most important job I've ever had. I'm proud to be from Nashville-a true Southern belle!

About Me

I love to read in my spare time. Most of my day is spent doing mom stuff, but I try to carve out a few minutes to myself every day. B.C. (before children), I graduated with a business degree and then got a wonderful job that I loved with a major aerospace company. I was able to travel the world and also get my Master's degree while working. On graduation day, rather than attend the ceremony, I was admitted to the hospital to have my daughter (a month early)! The next phase of my career started as soon as I became a mother. I love this job and feel very blessed to have three amazing children.

Why I am a Mormon

My mom was the first person in our family to join the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. She was introduced to the Mormon faith by neighbors who looked out for us while my dad was away at sea with the Navy for 6 months at a time. My dad was baptized a couple of years later. I have grown up in the Mormon Church, but because I grew up in TN, I don't feel like I took my religion for granted. I had friends of all faiths, and I was always clear with my own beliefs.

How I live my faith

I believe that I live my faith in every aspect of my life. Our church life is very enmeshed with our personal lives. We say family prayers and read scriptures as a family. One or two nights per week, you'll usually find us at our meetinghouse. Our children have Boy Scouts and other activities. I also work with the young women in our church, and we have activities every Wednesday evening--sometimes it's a spiritual meeting, other times it's a craft or a sport. Until recently, I coordinated acts of service for our church family members when they were in need--for example, a birth of a child, an illness, etc. I really enjoyed doing that since I'm an outgoing person.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

The family is the cornerstone to our lives. Heavenly Father blesses us with a family so that we may learn, grow, and experience the joys and trials of life together. I am very thankful to my mother and father for their love and support. But I am especially grateful for my own 3 children. I am so blessed to have been entrusted with their sweet spirits. I learn more from them than they do from me. Show more Show less
