Hi I'm Tania

I work in Public Health as a Media Coordinator, I am a mother of one, I am divorced, I am a Mormon.

About Me

Although I was born in the United States, I was raised in Mexico up to the age of 13, then we moved back to the United States. My parents' emphasis on education inspired me to study hard and attend university...get and education and be prepared.I received my Masters degree in Public Health and I currently work in that field. My favorite time of day comes after I leave the office and I wear my 'mom' hat. For over a year now I have added the title of 'figure skating mom' to my jobs. Taking my daughter to figure skating and watching her grow and develop is very rewarding to me. My favorite thing is to go on 'adventures' with my daughter each weekend. The adventures can be going to a museum, the zoo, or 'creating' our own cooking show. On my spare time I volunteer, read, sing in the congregation's choir, run, learn something new, or spend time my family and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents joined the church in Mexico when I was 2 years old. I was raised a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Having said that, I had to come to know by myself whether or not these beliefs were true. Through out my life, especially during hard times, I have felt and come to know that the gospel is true and it is a great blessing in my life. Being a member of the church all my life has served as a guide and protection to me. During the hard times the gospel has given me the peace amongst the storm, the strength to carry on, and the perspective that it is only a moment in time and I will be better and stronger from having gone through it. Through the gospel I have learned how to be a better mother to my daughter and how to be a happy, whole person regardless of the situation. I am thankful for the hope and joy the gospel brings to my life.

How I live my faith

Every day, my little one and I read scriptures and pray together. On Mondays, we have family night. As a church member, I have had the opportunity to serve people, from the youngest to the oldest, people I know and don't know. I have taught the little children (18months -3 years old) songs about the love God has for them; I have taught religion classes to teen-agers at 6:00AM; I have organized humanitarian projects, and much more. I participate in the activities organized by tmy congregation. This allows me to make new friends and learn about other people. The gospel is a way of life to me, not just something I do on Sundays.
