Hi I'm Tatum Atwood

I grew up in Utah. I'm a dancer, singer, and actress. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have grown up in Utah. I live in a family of six. I am the oldest and have three younger sisters. In high school I was heavily involved in the performing arts. I have had a lot of experience in and highly enjoy dance, choir, and drama. I graduated high school one year ago and have been working and saving money so that I can serve a mision.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up in the gospel. My parents have been active members their whole lives and have done their absolute best at teaching me and raising me in the gospel. As I have grown, my testimony has slowly become my own and not the testimony of my parents. This gospel has provided me so much peace and comfort when other sources have always come up short. The inexplicable amount of joy and peace that is found in the teachings of the gospel is so powerful and amazing. I have felt in my heart and can testify with certainty that this gospel is true. Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God and was commanded to translate The Book of Mormon. The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ and His ministry on earth. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is His church on earth today. Heavenly Father sent His Son to die for us that we may return to live with Him again. Our Father in Heaven and Jesus Christ love us perfectly and unconditionally. I know for myself that these things are true. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

The ways I live my faith that I have seen make the greatest impact on me are by living the gospel in the smallest ways. When I first started working I didn't say anything about swearing to my coworkers. They were their own person and they knew the rules and it wasn't the best place to hound on people for their language. But I never swore. Within the first week a few people asked if I was Mormon, and upon me replying yes and without asking, they did their best to watch their language around me and more and more would try to do their best as well. I have found that even the small things can still make the biggest difference whether it is in the way people treat you and help you or simply the way you feel and the influence of the holy spirit.
