Hi I'm Tami Haglund

I grew up in Texas. I am a Mechanical Engineer. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I graduated from college 2 years ago with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. I enjoy reading, running, cross-stitching, and watching tv/movies. I have been married to my husband for about a year and a half and we loving spend time together.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Mormon Church and because I grew up with it in my life, I never really had a need to seek it out. When I went off to college and had to learn what it was like living outside of my parents house (I even went to the other side of the country), I really had to figure out what I was doing. During my second year at school, my mom had a medical emergency and had to be rushed to the hospital. I was so scared. I hadn't really lost anyone in my life that was really close to me and I knew I wasn't ready to lose her. So, I did the only thing that I could. I got down on my knees and prayed. I prayed for my mom. I prayed for my family. I prayed to know if there really was a God out there. I prayed for comfort. I think that was the first really sincere prayer I had ever sent out there. Before I got up from my knees, I got a phone call. She was fine and that everything was going to be okay. And I could feel that all that was true. That was when I knew there had to be somebody out there. I know that my Heavenly Father helped that phone call to happen. That phone call seems like a coincidence, but I know that it wasn't. Things happen for a reason. I know that the power of prayer is real. I continue to pray because I need that constant reassurance that He is out there caring for me. I always have to be reminded that He loves me and I am always reminded of that when I pray, read my scriptures, go to church, teach the youth, and in a lot more aspects of my life.

How I live my faith

My husband and I teach the 15-16 year-olds at our church. We enjoy teaching them and hope they have learned as much from us as we have from them. We really aren't that much older than them so it's funny trying to teach them things that we were learning about just a few years ago. And by a few years I mean 10...so I guess that was a little while ago.
