Hi I'm Tamara

I am a mother of 11. I am in school full time, working on my bachelors degree in psychology.

About Me

I am married to a wonderful man. We work together and play together. We are both on our second marriage. We have 11 children, with one left at home. Many of our children are married now and have blessed us with grand children (17). We are helping raise one of our little grandsons. His father is now raising him alone. I am in school full time, finishing my degree in psychology. I am attending Assumption College full time. I am currently looking for a graduate program to begin next year. All our children have attended or are attending college. They live all over the country. Many have served missions for our church. One is about to leave soon for a mission. We all enjoy getting together for game nights. We spend more time talking about old times and laughing than playing the games. I have found out many things as a parent just listening to the adult children tell their stories. Life is good. Go out and live it.

Why I am a Mormon

I know the truth when I feel it. The truth can not be hidden. It shines through lies and deceit. When persecuted, I remember that God is on the side of truth. This gives me hope every time I face difficulty's. When faced with the truth of any kind my heart recognizes it and my spirit embraces it. That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I try to forgive those who trespass against me so that I am worthy of the Lord's forgiveness. I Love to teach my little grandchildren the primary songs and sing to them. I also love to bake cookies with them. Loving others is the best way I can live my faith. I make sharing the news of Christ a part of my everyday life. Talking about religion and politics are all part of being social. I am an out going person and can rarely sit still long. I love working toward something. I believe that everything I learn in this life, I will take with me to the next. Yes, I believe in an after life. Earth life is just a stopping place to learn along the way. Eternal life is something to look forward to and be excited about. I believe the thing that will surprise us most ,after death, is how familiar the world is that we find ourselves in. While here on earth I want to do as much good as I can. I also want to have fun with my friends and family. This life is to enjoy and be happy. We mourn when we loose loved ones. We feel anger and grief at loss. But we can choose to get up the next day and be happy.

What is the role of the husband and the wife in the family?

The role of husband and wife in a family is one of unity. As each grows they support each other and make decisions together. They act as a unit working together for the families good. Show more Show less
