Hi I'm Tracy

I am a native Georgian, a mother, a math teacher, a hip-hop dance teacher, and a Zumba Fitness instructor and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am blessed to be a Daughter of God on earth who has the opportunity to be a mother to two beautiful daughters of God. I have both a bachelors and masters degree in mathematics. Before being a stay-at-home mother, I taught high school, college, and tutored many students. Recently, I have returned to the classroom working as a math teacher. I have been dancing since I was three years old in styles, such as, ballet, jazz, tap, modern, contemporary, and hip-hop. I am also a certified fitness instructor and love exercise of all kinds, especially dance fitness, running, and pilates. I am currently teaching Zumba classes each week and hip-hop dance classes. Being a mother has been by far the best blessing I've experienced in my life and my joy comes from my children and spending my time with them and teaching them the gospel and correct principles.

Why I am a Mormon

I joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints when I was 20 years old. I attended the church weekly for about a year and learned about the gospel of Jesus Christ. The Spirit witnessed to me over time that I needed to be baptized. Being baptized into the church was the best decision that I have ever made. I have grown closer to my Savior, Jesus Christ, each day as I've practiced obedience to the principles of the gospel and have learned that true happiness can only be found through obedience to these gospel principles. The Lord teaches us daily little by little as we are prepared and if we stay close to Him, our testimony and faith becomes stronger and we become better, more like our Savior. I know that life is not easy, but we are not alone. We are on the path to perfection and the Lord is on our side.

How I live my faith

Faith is an action word, which means it is not enough for one to just learn the gospel, but to act on it and live it. It takes work and effort. I live the gospel each day by having daily prayers, both alone and with my children, reading scriptures to myself, as well as, with my children, and attending church each Sunday. I have served in the church in many ways, such as, working with and teaching nursery-age children, primary-age children, young men and young women, teaching women's classes, and visiting and fellowshipping other women and families in the ward. I attend the temple at least once a month to strengthen my faith and serve others. I try to attend activities and events that are faith-promoting for me and my children. I live the standards of our faith in the community, as well. If given the opportunity, I freely share the gospel with others and let them know how important it is in my life and the happiness and joy it brings to me and my family.
