Hi I'm Tiffany

I was born and raised in Arizona. I am a single-mom in school for Interior Design. I am a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Tiffany. I have a strong personality & will power to succeed. There is no question that being a member of this great church has helped me through hard times & made me who I am today. I am a single-mom & my two beautiful daughters are ages 2 and 4. I love being a mother, there is nothing better! My kids are my world & I am in school to further my education & provide the best life I can for them. I work at my school a few hours a week, but mostly focus on classes. I love to use my creative side. Scrapbooking, taking pictures, and organizing events like weddings, parties, you name it... I love it. I strive to do my best in everything I do & love to learn. I love taking my girls to the movies, making crafts, & playing dress up. I also love to go out & spend time with friends too. I like to surround myself with positive/uplifting people. I look up to my parents & grandparents. I am determined & make things happen. I believe that nothing comes to those who wait- i go out & chase my dreams! This world has so much beauty to offer to those willing to find it. The church has opened my eyes to this fact. I am grateful for the beauty in my life & the chance to raise two of God's children. It's a bit overwhelming at times & like everyone else, there have been hard times. But I know I am blessed and can overcome anything!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon. I was baptized at age 8 and have been a member of the church ever since. I believe in Christ. I know God sent his only Begotten Son to be our Redeemer. I know He sacrificed His life so that we can repent and be forgiven of our sins. I also believe in the Gift of the Holy Ghost. I believe we all have agency to chose right or wrong and the Spirit can help guide our choices. I am so thankful for my children and the trust the Lord must have in me to raise them. I have never doubted that there is a God and that this is His true church on the earth today. I was blessed to be raised in the gospel and have goodly parents and wonderful teachers along the way. I have also had good friends, including those who may not be members of my faith. I like to see the good in others and be a friend to those I meet. Christ was such an amazing example of loving others. I have a testimony of the Prophet Joseph Smith. I know he restored the gospel to the earth and translated the Book of Mormon for all to learn of Christ's discipleship in the latter-days. There have been many prophets that the Lord speaks to and gives us counsel through. I don't feel like I have to figure everything out for myself. I know that those put in positions to lead us give us counsel to live by. The scriptures are the Words of God. I love reading them and learn something new every time I read. Being LDS is more than a way of life, it's a commitment to be the best I can be (cheesy as that may sound). I have discovered the true meaning of happiness.

How I live my faith

I have come a long way to have the humble testimony I do today. I have been through trials and hard times in my life, but I am grateful for the sacrifices others have made in my behalf and I see the hand of the Lord in my life daily. I find myself on my knees frequently. Not only to pray for help and guidance, but to thank the Lord for putting me in the right places, at the right times, and with the right people. To be a person with high standards, you really have to put yourself in good places and surround yourself with good people. I believe in working hard for what I have, helping others along the way, and striving for happiness. My kids are a constant reminder of the reason we are all here. Family means everything and true happiness is loving someone more than yourself. Christ was the ultimate example of this love. There is an eternal perspective that reminds me why it is all worth it. The sacrifices we make and the trials we endure only show us how happy and blessed we really are. I have wonderful family, great kids, and I am doing the things I want to do. Truly happy.

What do Mormons believe happens to us after we die? What do Mormons believe about life after death?

We believe in life after death. Death is not an end, but a step towards our Father in Heaven. His plan for us is to be together as families forever. When we die, our body and spirit separate for a time. Our spirit continues to grow and learn. We can be with our family and friends that have passed on before us. Though our mortal body may die in this life, we believe that we will be resurrected and our spirit will be reunited with our bodies. Once reunited with our bodies, we will never be separated again. I have a testimony that Christ's death and resurrection makes this possible. We can be eternal families. Show more Show less
