Hi I'm Tiffanee

I write poetry. I like to play tennis. I'm going to serve a mission in the Georgia Atlanta mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a college student trying to get through my bachelor's degree. Until recently I was a pizza chef at a little restaurant nearby and until very recently I also worked at an alarm company filing contracts and doing other boring things. I just went snowshoeing for the first time the other day and it was super fantastic. I didn't even use the trails on the way back down; it's almost like you're ice skating down a really steep hill. I like to play sports, generally that don't entail objects flying at my face, but I like tennis because I can defend myself with a racquet. I've been writing poetry since about the age of thirteen and they have progressively gotten much better and much less dramatic. I have a family that I love very much and a boyfriend who I love very much as well, both of which I'm leaving behind to serve a mission for the Lord.

Why I am a Mormon

For a long time I didn't know for sure whether or not the church was true. I felt really alone because a lot of people my age seemed to know for sure that everything they had been taught their whole lives was the truth for sure. At first my testimony of this church started out as purely logical. Everything just seemed to make a lot of sense and I understood how things in the doctrine could work together, but as far as receiving a witness from God that it was true, I was lacking. After having the opportunity to attend the seminary located at my high school, I really started to understand what feeling the spirit was like and what receiving inspiration and answers to prayers really felt like. Eventually, I read a book called 'Believing Christ.' That book changed my life. I truly began to understand the Atonement of Jesus Christ and started to realize just a little bit what he actually did for me. After that I immediately started working on changing myself to be the kind of person that I wanted to be. I've been able to change and grow so much and the person I am now far surpasses the person I was in high school, or even a year ago. When I learned how to immerse my life in the Gospel and center everything on becoming more Christlike and especially being more humble, the knowledge and inspiration that I've received through study and through prayer have been exponetial components of changing my life for the better. I'm a Mormon because, without the restored Gospel, I wouldn't know my Savior, I wouldn't know my Father in Heaven, I wouldn't have the great relationships that I currently have, and I wouldn't know who I am, why I'm here, where I'm going, and the pure eternal joy that can be mine by simply choosing to follow Christ's example. I'm a student, a daughter, a soon-to-be missionary, and a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live the Gospel of Jesus Christ one day at a time, and as I do so I seem to progress that way as well. I've really enjoyed going to singles' wards and participating in institute classes and activities. I've really liked going visiting teaching because I feel like it's prepared me a little bit to work with a companion and rely on their spirit as well as my own. When I've gone to the institute of religion that's located at my college campus, I've grown so much spiritually and have greatly increased my testimony of the Atonement of Jesus Christ and of so many other things that witness to me of the truth that this is the true church on the earth.
