Hi I'm Tyece

I'm a wife and a mother. My belief in God defines who I am. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My husband and I have 3 kids. Family, both immediate and extended, is a big deal to Casey and me. We both have 3 sisters and parents who live close by. We work hard to maintain those important ties. I like to cook (and to taste :)) and I like putting together memory books for my kids. In the last few years I've developed a interest in gardening. Flowers are easier than vegetables, but I like to learn about it..digging in the dirt proves therapeutic - right up until another one withers and dies. (I'm kind of a slow learner)

Why I am a Mormon

I am so thankful for the understanding the gospel gives me. I know who I am. I am a child of God, and we are all brothers and sisters. I can view others as God sees me, as a flawed imperfect mortal with the potential and worth to become what God can make of me. The principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ help me in my desire to have a happy marriage, guides me in teaching my children, learning to serve my neighbors and in understanding others. Through the scriptures and the words of our latter-day prophets I know what God wants me to do. And becuase of my life experiences I know that following God brings me more happiness than anything else. Certainly it doesn't make my life easy, but I know where to turn for peace.

How I live my faith

Casey and I try to teach by example by inviting our kids to pray and read from the scriptures together. We set Monday nights aside as a family to reivew simple gospel lessons (our kids are still little) and spend time together. We want to practice important princles such as tithing and unconditional love in a way that shows our kids that the Savior's teachings are a priority in our lives. I am a visting teacher. Monica and I visit two women in our ward. I feel like this assigment gives me the opportuinty to make friends with some that I might otherwise not know as well. We do our best to visit them about once a month. In addition, right now I also serve as the president of our primary. We have almost 100 kids in our ward under the age of 12 (at 12 they begin to attend young women's or young men's classes). I have two councilors and a secretary in my presidency, 19 teachers, and 4 others who help each week with a weekly sharing time and music class. We also head cub scouts and girls activities which begin when the kids turn 8 years old. I used to teach the women's releif society class and find this calling to be much more time-consuming than my teaching assignment :).. But I'm thankful for those that have worked in this spot before me, (and helped my kids!) and pray that I can be of service in building up the kingdom of God.
