Hi I'm Tammy

I'm a mother of five, I love young women camp and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My husband and I have been married for almost 22 years, we have five children ranging from a sophomore in college to a four year old. My husband and I LOVE working with youth. I LOVE LOVE LOVE young women camp. When I need a change, I like to move things around my home and repaint the walls. I have recieved the YW medallion when I was a teen, again when serving in the ward YW program and I am currently mentoring a wonderful RS woman while she is working on her YW Medallion, while achieving on my Honor Bee. I Love being a Mormon, It reminds me of a song we learned in Primary- I'm a Mormon, yes I am If you want to study a Mormon, I’m a living specimen, Maybe you think I'm just like everybody else you see... But trust in my word, you'll quickly observe, I'm different as can be. I'm a Mormon through and through, And If you think I act peculiar with the things I say and do, Remember I know the rules the dos and don'ts for happy - happy living I learn to say I will I won't I try to be forgiving Maybe you'd like me to tell you about the things I know are true and you can be a Mormon too.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in this church. I attended early morning seminary, stake dances and youth conferences and loved the envolvement the church provided as a youth. Like all persons, there came a time when I think everyone askes "Is this true? or Is this right?" When I asked these after much prayer and thought, I recieved a very strong prompting of you already know. I love this church- It has so much to offer, no matter your age. I love knowing where I'm from, Why I'm here on Earth and that after we die, there is more to come. This really hit home after the passing of my older brother and all the grief I felt from that expierence. Then after the passing of two significate persons, one a man that my husband grew up with and another sweet women died of breast cancer- the learning expierence is this: That after each passing, those that believe in a life after death, the greif was great, yet with the understanding that that person isn't gone from us forever. It makes the passing of their life a bit easier, yet for those that do not believe or know about life after death, the grief causes so much termoil in their lives, shutting down from the world, wanting to tattoo their body for the sake of the passed person, or just overly expressing the passing over and over again. I am greatful for this knowlege and for the comfort it brings. Yes, I still miss them and desire to see tham, yet great will be our joy when we are reunited. Being a Mormon is just my way of life and who I am.

How I live my faith

I have worked with the Youth in many aspects, from attending youth conferences, going on a Pioneer Trek, to Wilderness outings and my favorite is Young Women Camp. Spending time with the young women in the woods, watching them interact with each other outside of their school "lives" is so great. When the youth participate in these activities, they step outside what they are at home and come with one common reason and that they are all Memebers of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints all trying to be more like their Savior Jesus Christ and when they look around, they are wowed by the fact that they are not alone in their efforts. I love that! I live my faith by striving with all that's in me to do my best, by trying to remember to read my scriptures, and to have a conversation with my heavenly father at least once per day. I am now serving as Stake YW Camp Specialist and as the Co- Compassionate Service leader in our ward. Between these two callings I feel very blessed to work with wonderful women and young women. I love to serve my Savior in His Church.
