Hi I'm Tiffany

Late 20's, California bred, therapist-extraordinaire. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I finally graduated with a Masters degree this summer and have earned my right to say, "I'm a therapist." I am fascinated by people, our behavior, our personalities, our emotions, and our potential. It doesn't hurt that I can talk anyone's ear off either. Honing my abilities as a counselor is secondary to the rad relationship I have with my smokin' hot husband of almost three years. He is the yin to my yang. We like talking about food as much as we like eating it and hope to visit Japan so we can eat legit sushi. We also like TV- show marathons [minimum of 6 hours]. So, my sudden influx of free time [aka finishing school] should allow me to tune up on some skills. Hopefully I can get back to following my favorite bands, browse my local thrift stores, hem and sew items found at said thrift stores, do some power yoga, work on my fitness, bow hunt, practice my dance moves that are suuuper rusty, and occasionally read a good dystopian novel. My love language is giving verbal affirmations, my personality color is red, I'm part Jewish and Viking, and my power animal is probably a wolf. I embrace the fact I love to wear patchouli oil and I LOVE being a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I am eighth generation Mormon, born and raised. However, my relationship with Jesus Christ was not automatic. At age 16, a friend of mine died suddenly. It triggered a spiritual quest in my life. I sought for answers regarding the purpose of life, the reality of God, and how to find happiness. I attended other churches but did not find the inner peace or answers which I sought. The answers were close to home, in The Book of Mormon. The introduction promises if you read it and pray with a sincere heart to find the truth of it, God will give you an answer. I prayed to God, my Heavenly Father, in the name of His son, Jesus Christ, and was touched by The Spirit of God and felt the truth of it instantly! I finally had that peace and comfort I was seeking. I prayed and received tangible peace and love from God. I know Jesus Christ is my personal Savior. He is Jesus of Nazareth, The Christ, OUR Redeemer. I love Him and continue to gain understanding of His love for me. I continue to seek and follow Him because He gives me everything from the air I breath to the hope and happiness I feel everyday! I find peace in The Church of Jesus Christ of Later-Day saints which was restored by Joseph Smith, a prophet. I know Joseph Smith was called of God and taught the teachings of Jesus Christ. I find peace in the teachings of living prophets today, just like people did in the Bible and Book of Mormon. I find peace in knowing I will live with God and my family for eternity and that Christ lives and knows me. The restoration of Christ's full gospel in a Church led by him is the foundation for me. I feel great hope and peace knowing his full gospel and having a relationship with him. Though politics and opinions may clash about my religion, I testify I follow Jesus Christ, the Son of God and claim his atonement and his divinity daily. I'm grateful for the entirety of Christ's teachings in the LDS church and that I know I can return to live with him. He is my light and life.

How I live my faith

My husband and I participate in our Church community by volunteering as family history consultants. We assist people who want to learn the basics of family history work. It pretty much means we help people start their own family tree online. I am just beginning to learn about genealogy on a formal level, but I enjoy connecting with my ancestors and knowing my heritage. I found pictures of my great great great grandmothers and cried when pictures showed we had the same nose and eyes. Connecting with my ancestors is super spiritual for me and I love helping others find that connection.
