Hi I'm Tammy

I'm a wife and a mother of four. I'm a technology project manager. I'm a mountain biker. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I married my best friend 19 years ago when I was just 21 years old. We have four awesome children. Fortunately they all get their stature, good looks and brains from their dad. I work full time as technology project manager for a large bank. I’m blessed to be able to work from my home so I can be available when my family needs me. I would say the most challenging part of my job is that I don’t get to see many people during the day so I find myself becoming less and less social as the years go by. I LOVE mountain biking. We have terrific trails close to our home which makes it easy to ride during my lunch hour almost every day during the warmer months. Our family’s favorite place to visit is Moab, Utah. We’ve gone every year but one for the last 18 years. I love the red sandstone, blue sky and warm desert air. I also LOVE the snow and wouldn’t mind living up in the high mountains where I could get snowed in for weeks.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was very young, I remember going to church with my family and learning a song named ‘Families can be Together Forever’. The song taught of the importance of families and why Heavenly Father placed us in ‘families’. It also taught me that I can be with my family even after I die. I loved my family more than anything and I wanted to be able to be with them for eternity but I also realized that I would one day grow up, marry and have a family of my own. This became the most important goal in my life. More than anything else in the whole world, I wanted to marry a faithful, loving man, have children and live my life so that I would be worthy to be with my family forever. This is why I am Mormon.

How I live my faith

Because of my life long goal to keep my family together forever, I have made Jesus Christ the center of my life. I strive to live in a way that would make HIM proud of me. I don't always succeed in making good choices (more often than I'd like to admit) but when I mess up I immediately turn to my Heavenly Father and Christ help get me back on the right path. I find the easiest way to stay on the path back to my Heavenly Father is much like the way I mountain bike. If I stay positive, look ahead and keep pedaling I find it much easier to avoid or even float over the rocks and obstacles in the path. When I start looking down and focusing on the obstacles I tend to ride right into them. Some of the positive things I do to avoid obstacles in my life are, praying daily, reading the Bible and the Book of Mormon, attending weekly church meetings and activities, and providing service to my family and friends. I find the busier I am with the most important things, the happier I am and the more time I seem to have during the day.
