Hi I'm Tiffany

I was born and raised in Reno, Nevada. My mother and her mother were born and raised in SLC and moved here. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a single, disabled, mother of two small boys. They're currently 5 and 2. I've never been married. I made some bad choices before Jesus Christ came into our lives but I will never regret having my two boys. They are the joy of my life. In hindsight, I can now look back and see that they are the reason I was born to live on this earth and go through all of these trials and tribulations, they are why I'm here. I was born to be their momma. I would never assume to guess what God's plan is for me but I firmly believe it has something to do with these two great guys that are in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

My mother passed away December 27, 2009 and during my grief process I was doing a lot of soul searching. I found myself praying again after a long absence from prayer. I started dreaming and day dreaming and felt a Very Strong "pull" from my mother through the veil towards the Church. I have no doubt that she was telling me that she was on the other side, doing missionary work and was telling me to get myself to the nearest Church with my boys and make sure that I could be with her again one day. I got on Mormon.org and poured my heart out to one of the members on the "talk to a mormon now" tab. They told me to contact my local stake and ward and talk to a missionary. I did. It turned out that missionaries had knocked on my door the day before. I got goosebumbs just thinking about how it all came to be. It was truly God's work. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I'm new babtised and have just started with hometeaching and just got my calling from my bishop so things are all still very new for me as a convert. I'm making great friends. The first day I attended church I put my then 4 year old in sunbeams and my 2 year old in the nursery and attended my first Relief Society meeting. I listened intently to the lesson and took a moment to look around the room and just breathe. It was a truely devine moment for me when I thought in silent serenity, "I am amoungst like women, talking and thinking about like things and my children are safe." It was the first time since they were born since I've felt such a feeling of overwhelming calm and peace and I'm grateful every single sunday that I get to attend and take part in what is God's work and get to grow closer to my sister's and brothers in my ward and see how my children grow more and more loving and patient as they learn about simple yet invaluable lessons like love, grace and forgiveness.
