Hi I'm Tyra

I am a wife, mother, sister, friend, Revenue Manager, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the mother of Beatrice and Teagan, and I am the wife of Alex. I have settled in Alabama. After moving from South Carolina to California to broaden my career in the hotel industry, I wanted to get back to my southern roots, and Alabama fit that bill. Little did I know my life would change drastically when I met my husband at a friend's party in July 2010. He was not a member of the Church, but he had a lot of questions from watching "Big Love." The whirlwind began: met in July, married in November, and he was baptized in January. We now have two beautiful daughters in our forever family

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, because I know the Church is true. I may have been raised in the Church by very involved parents, but I lost my way for about 10 years. Meeting my husband and his interest in the Church renewed by testimony and brought me back. I know Joseph Smith restored the fullness of the gospel under the direction of our Saviour, Jesus Christ. I know this Church is the true Church of Christ, and that He leads us today through the current prophet Thomas Monson. I am grateful and humbled by the Atonement of our Saviour to "rescue a soul so rebellious and proud as mine." I look forward to the day when Christ returns! I am grateful and humbeled that our Heavenly Father has entrusted two souls to my care. I know we are a family forever thanks to the restoration of the Priesthood. I know my Saviour and God, the Father, live and love us! I am a Mormon, because I know this Church is true!

How I live my faith

I have served in the church in the past with our youth, but I am curently serving as a mom to a newborn baby. She and her 16-month-old sister take up all of my time outside of work, and I wouldn't trade it for anything!
