Hi I'm Tisha

I'm crazy about families. I'm crazy about health food. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I started out my "grown-up" life as a cosmetologist. The rumor is, people tell their hair-dresser everything. That's not too far from the truth. As I became more exposed to the "grown-up" world, I was sad to realize that not everyone has the family experience I am thankful to have been raised with. I am somewhat addicted to education, so went on to study at the college, even though I was already in a profession I loved. When it came time to choose a degree, I decided to study families! I wanted to save the world - one home and one family at a time. Now-days, I am focusing in a little more closely on one little family in particular - my own! I finally was able to have my own family and am LOVING living my dream as a stay-at-home mom to three kids, three and under, as well as being the emotional support my super-hero husband needs as he goes through graduate school. In this new phase of my life, I find that I LOVE learning about healthy eating and making delicious food that is SO GOOD for the body! Every time I am able to create a new recipe that my family loves, tastes delicious, and is filled with only good-for-the-body things, it is an absolute thrill for me.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon? It's because I KNOW it is what God wants me to do! While many churches bring goodness into people's lives and help them feel the love of God, I believe that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is LITERALLY His church on the earth - He is leading it! I feel it in my heart and soul. I know it in my mind. And I will stay true to Him all my life! The way that I came to know this was small and simple, one little step at a time. My parents took me to this church when I was small and taught me what was right and wrong. Then, when I made those choices myself, I felt in my heart that God was pleased. When I read the scriptures and prayed, or have listened to the prophet and apostles speak, there have been times that The Holy Spirit came so powerfully into my soul that there is now way of denying it's truth. When I served as a missionary for my church in Los Angels, I saw it changes person after person's life as they found out for themselves that it is true and changed their lives forever for the better. And I know that you can find out too. Do it!

How I live my faith

I'm glad I studied about families because they are everywhere! Of all the social science philosophies I have studied, however, I have come to find that the one that is most likely to change people's lives and save families is The Gospel of Jesus Christ. "Happiness in family life is most likely to be achieved when founded upon the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ. Successful marriages and families are established and maintained on principles of faith, prayer, repentance, forgiveness, respect, love, compassion, work, and wholesome recreational activities." (The Family: A Proclamation to the World) I know that is the truth! And I love sharing it. I am able to talk about it at the park, the grocery story, the doctor's office, and everywhere. I love helping and strengthening families being the secretary for all the children's classes at church. My husband and I read the scriptures daily with our children, we pray with them multiple times a day, we take them to church, and we save one night a week to teach them things from ancient as well as our modern prophets that we know will help them be disciples of Jesus Christ. All that being said, what really makes the difference in our home is when we each personally live it. After I am self-centered, bossy, or loose my temper; when I humble my heart, kneel down and pray for forgiveness, and then apologize sincerely to my husband or child, it is in those minutes that our hearts are softened towards each other and we love each other more deeply. It is those moments that our family, standing at a fork in the road, walks down the path of happiness and love that leads us back to the Savior and we are able to avoid the path of sin and sadness. I love my Savior. He is my strength and joy. And I know that following Him has made all the difference in my live and in my family.
