Hi I'm Tiffany

I grew up in New Jersey. I'm a NICU nurse and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in New Jersey, then moved out to Idaho. I work as a NICU nurse, caring for premature babies as small as 1 lb. I have 2 young boys who are full of energy. I love playing sports, snowboarding, surfing, running, and field hockey. I also love cooking, playing super heroes with my boys, and crafting. I'm a full time mom, night shift nurse, and wife, and a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I love my life!

Why I am a Mormon

I joined the church at 19 years old. I met my husband when we were 15 and had not ever heard of the church before. My husband's family would read scriptures and pray when I came to visit, they never forced anything on me, let they me pace myself. I wasn't raised in a home with religion. I believed in Jesus and enjoyed going to church with friends, but hadn't found anywhere that I felt comfortable. The first time I went to church, my husband's sister was giving a talk. That impressed me, that members prepare talks to share with everyone each Sunday. I went away to college and my husband moved to Florida to work, then we decided to get married. I started attending my local ward regularly and decided I wanted to be baptized. I wanted religion and the constant presence of Christ in our home. One year after we got married, we were sealed together for time and all eternity in the Idaho Falls temple. I love attending church and believe the Book of Mormon to be true and a wonderful companion to the Bible. I know that Thomas S. Monson is a living prophet and that when I was baptized by full immersion, I was washed clean of my sins. I know that Jesus Christ lives and loves us and died for our sins and the only way back to our Heavenly Father is through him. I love to see the realization that this is the truth whenever I read scriptures or sing hymns to my children.

How I live my faith

I have made many friends through the gospel and am so happy in my daily life. Because my husband and I work night shift, we work opposite shifts of each other and often times, I attend church alone with my boys. This is important for me because I want them to have the benefit of having Christ in their life and to know how important church attendance is. I am a nursery teacher and get to further teach not only my boys, but the other children 18 months to 3 years old. It is beyond sweet to hear the children repeat lesson topics back, even several weeks later, further reinforcing their knowledge of the gospel and reaffirming that they are absorbing that which they are being taught. I have personally seen the hand of God in my household in the precious faces of my children and through my work as a nurse. There are some true miracle babies that live on outside of our NICU and some that don't but may change that families life, beyond what they may comprehend at that time. I am so truly blessed in my life and grateful for the opportunities to share the gospel with others.
