Hi I'm Tami

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a Mom. I love being a Mom! It has been one of the greatest joys of my life to watch my children grow through the different stages of life, learning to walk, to talk, then to start school, play sports and learn to play musical instruments; to see them grow into young adulthood and to learn to overcome the challenges they face. My husband and I have had 7 miscarriages and were not sure if we would ever be able to have children. We are grateful for the two living children that we do now have! They are the source of great joy and learning. I have spent a great deal of my life being involved in the school community where I am now serving on the Board of Directors, as a volunteer, of my youngest child's charter school. It is where I have felt I could make the biggest difference for not just my children, but other children as well. They are our future! I have a strong desire to see them become successful in every way as individuals, students, citizens, leaders and future parents. I believe in helping children develop qualities of integrity, honesty, moral, academic, personal and eventually professional excellence. Reading, cooking, baking, knitting, crocheting, walking, yoga, laughing and learning are a few of my favorite things and I love to share them with my children. As a family, we enjoy spending time together. playing games, working together on projects and watching old movies. But most of all, we enjoy laughing together and just spending time together.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe in God's plan of happiness for all of His children. I know that I have a Heavenly Father who loves me individually. He is in the very details of my life. I have a Savior, Jesus Christ who has paid the exacting price for me so that I may, not only be forgiven for the things that I do wrong, but have the grace and strength I need to face life's challenges and succeed. I am a Mormon because of my belief in the eternal family. I know that I can be with my husband and my children forever. That the sweetest of family relations can and will go on after this life. The knowledge that the God of this universe has chosen from all of the names that reference Him, to be called "Father" helps me understand who I am, a child of God. This knowledge gives me perspective and an understanding of why I am here and what my purpose is in this life. I am a member of this church because it gives my life meaning, purpose, and vision. Simply put, I know who I am, why I am on this planet, what my purpose of my life and where I will go after I die. TIt gives me peace, hope and courage.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being the best example I can be of Jesus Christ in all I do as a Wife, Mother, neighbor, Board Member, and friend.  I live my faith by being faithful to my marriage covenant to my husband. I teach my children of Jesus Christ and His divine role in our lives. That He is the true source of peace and happiness. He taught us the way to live and if we as a family will live his teachings, we will know greater happiness and peace. Currently, I help organize assistance for those who are in need of help due to various challenges such as illness, birth of a new baby, death of a loved one, surgery or emergencies. I help organize women to be of assistance to other women and families at times of need with meals, babysitting help, sometmes just being a friend and listening ear at difficult times. I serve the children of our community by volunteering at my daughter's charter school as a Board of Director to ensure that there is a moral, ethical, character buiding, academically challenging and safe environment to foster the best possible learning experience for children. It is a wonderful opportunity to help support our community in building character and leadership in these children to help them be successful in their personal lives, in their families, communities, and careers. They will then go out and influence many others by their examples of integrity and strong moral character.
