Hi I'm Tami

I live in a little town in called Toquervlle. I am married to a wonderful LDS man, and we have three children.

About Me

I am a stay at home mom. It's a simple life and a really busy one all at once. My favorite hobbies are crocheting, photography, and scrapbooking. I have been a member of the LDS church my whole life, and am now enjoying teaching the gospel to my children. I am a co-leader for our local girl scout troop!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because of all it's brings me peace and joy! I was raised a member, but in my later teen years I didn't follow it's teachings. I wanted to try life on "my terms". It wasn't tragic, but I lacked guidance. Making decisions became more difficult and I felt confused often. My roommate at college, during the Christmas season, asked me why I celebrated Christmas if I didn't believe in Christ. This got me thinking, a lot... I never stopped believing in Christ, and since I hadn't I knew that I had to change my ways and follow his example and commandments. Since then I have felt peace as I pray to our Heavenly Father and received guidance and comfort through the Holy Ghost. Every day I pray to feel the Holy Ghost and have his guidance so that there might be harmony in my home. I am grateful for this gift I was given when I was baptized. I know it's because of the Holy Ghost that I was reminded that I know this church is true and that Jesus Christ is my savior. It was the Holy Ghost on the day of my mom's passing that my family and I felt peace and not devastation. And it is the Holy Ghost that helps me every day from avoiding temptation. I stand in awe at what Jesus did by coming to earth to teach us, atone for us, and die that we might be resurrected. I know these events transpired, and my goal is to follow his example, to become as Christ like as I can on this earth. I want to really know the Savior, and I want to spend eternity with him and my family! In the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

How I live my faith

Currently in the church I help by watching/teaching children between the ages of 18 months to 3 years old during church hours.
