Hi I'm Tiffiny Smart

I grew up in Idaho and I love learning and sharing what I learn with those I love. I am a missionary, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest child of three girls. I love my family, and enjoy spending time with my parents, sisters, and relatives. I love reading books, being outdoors, helping others, and sports. Especially basketball, swimming, and watching football with my dad. Most of all I enjoy learning new things! I love sharing the things that I have learned, and am learning with those I care about. Currently I am sharing the most important thing to me which is the Gospel of Jesus Christ with those around me. I went to college and received my Associates Degree with an emphasis in Elementary Education. I love school, and am excited to help make an impact on society by helping children learn how to read, do math, and to enjoy learning after I return from my Mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints.

Why I am a Mormon

I have come to know who Jesus Christ is, who my Heavenly Father is, and that I am a Daughter of God, from simply three things. I have read the Book of Mormon, I pondered in my heart the testimonies of prophets who testified and taught of Jesus Christ. I studied it out to know, and then I knelt in prayer. Asking my Heavenly Father, with the intent to act upon the answer I received, Is the Book of Mormon true? Is Joseph Smith your prophet? Is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints true? Is the current prophet, President Thomas S. Monson a living Prophet today? As I prayed I received my answer. It didn't come in a pillar of light, but as a feeling of peace and warmth and light. and today, I know it is true. I know that God loves me, and is my Loving Heavenly Father. I know that He sent His Son Jesus Christ, my older brother, down to Earth so he can know how to help me. I know Jesus Christ came down for us, and that He knows exactly what we are going through. No matter where we are, He is always there for us. Whenever I feel upset or are feeling down, I can feel the Lord supporting me and comforting me. I know that President Monson is a true prophet of God. I know God has restored His church here on Earth so that we may learn of Him, and that we may return to live with our Father in Heaven. I am so grateful for a 14 year old boy who asked a simple question in faith to God. I know God hears and answers all of our prayers. All we need to do is simply search, ponder, and pray to know the answer.

How I live my faith

I was the president, first counselor and secretary in my Young Women's group. Where I was able to reach out to the girls in my group and help them build their testimonies, as well as to just be their friend. Before leaving on my mission, I taught the four to five year olds for about seven months, and then I taught the six to seven year olds for about nine months. I was able to learn how to teach the basic foundational truths to these sweet little children, and I loved being able to hear their simple, yet powerful testimonies of Jesus Christ. I am currently serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints, and sharing with those I meet how the Gospel of Jesus Christ has blessed my life. I love seeing how the people I share my testimony with, have been able to come closer to Christ,and I enjoy seeing how much more happy they become, and the blessings they receive as a result to learning more and coming closer to our savior Jesus Christ, and our loving Heavenly Father.
