Hi I'm Tiffany

I am a Wife, Mother, Sister, Chatterbox, and Friend. I love to travel and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am the mother of 2 fun, energetic teenage daughters and wife to a wonderful husband. I have been married 16 years. We have moved several times during our marriage and always find it an adventure. I am a medical assistant by profession but on an extended leave raising 2 great daughters. I loved my job but I love my family so much more. One of my daughters was born with severe health issues which have required extensive therapy and many surgeries during her life so far. I keep busy caring for my girls and my husband and enjoy almost every minute of it. I love to travel, spend time with my family, bargain shop, going on dates with my husband, and many more things. My mom passed away 3 years ago unexpectedly. It was a trial I wasn't prepared to face. I have 7 brothers spread across the country. One of my brothers has Down Syndrome and ended up moving into a group home when our mom passed. He is an example to me in so many aspects of my life. He always bring sunshine to my day. When I feel like life is hard or my trials are too much, I just look at him and it helps me recenter my thoughts and realize life is pretty good.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I was born into the church and have attended regular church meetings all my life. When I was a teenager I became an "independant" girl and decided I could make my own choices and didn't always attend regular church meetings. I didn't always make the best choices but I always knew my Savior Jesus Christ was there for me. I had wonderful youth leaders who always made me feel loved. I also had a very patient mother who watched me make my own choices and loved me and did her best to guide me. As I got older I realized even more that I had a wonderful gift (the gospel of Jesus Christ) and I needed to figure out if I believed it. Thru many different experiences in my life, I can say without a doubt that I know The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the true church on the earth today. The Holy Ghost has testified to me so many different times in my life I cannot deny. I know my family can be together forever thru the sacred ordinances of the temple and that provides a peace I cannot describe. I am so thankful for my membership in the gospel.

How I live my faith

I love the gospel of Jesus Christ. It provides happiness and peace.  I regularly attend my church meetings with my husband and daughters. I have the priviledge of serving the children in our church. I train the ward leaders and provide support to them. Children ages 3-11 years old attend Primary. In Primary we do our best to help the children experience 2 things every week. We want the children to feel loved and feel the spirit thru the testimonies of their wonderful leaders. Primary is where "seeds" are planted in the hearts of the children. It is a wonderful place to serve. The children are pure and excited about life. If the Savior were to visit a meeting house on any given Sunday, he would visit the little ones... In my daily life I do my best to teach my own children gospel truths. We read scriptures, say daily family prayer, and live in a way that invites Christ into our lives. We openly discuss the trials that surround our family every day. My husband and I are devoted parents and want our children to have their own strong foundations so they can grow up confident in who they are and recognize the gifts that come from our Heavenly Father.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

A testimony is a very personal thing. It is a deeply rooted undeniable belief in any given aspect of the gospel of Jesus Christ. A testimony is something a person knows to be true. Confirmation usually comes thru prayer and study of the scriptures or thru a personal experience. A testimony is gained bit by bit. A testimony usually starts to grow by asking if a specific part of the gospel is true. Show more Show less
