Desires dictate our priorities, priorities shape our choices, and choices determine our actions. – Dallin H. Oaks
My name is Tarrin Pendergrass. I’m a mom of 10. I am LDS. I love the gospel, my Savior, gardening, being outdoors, yoga, reading, and my family.
I have been a midwife, a farm manager, and an essential oil lover, but above all a woman, a wife and a mother.
I grew up as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Then, when I was a teenager, I became inactive and stayed inactive for over 15 years. I got married, had 3 amazing beautiful children and then I got divorced. I was heartbroken even though I knew in my heart of hearts it was for the best. I have tattoos. I don’t look like your quintessential Mormon. And you know what – that’s okay! We have all made mistakes in our lives, some of us just have visible proof of them. Ha!
I had been wanting to return to church for years, so after my divorce, I took my kids to church asap. We have gone every week ever since.
Not long after returning to church, my life took a 180 turn. There was so much positivity and abundance of every kind in my life! This is when I met my husband. I fell in love almost immediately. I knew I wanted to marry this man. He is funny, strong, faithful, loves God with a passion I had never really known before, and he is an amazing father to his children – oh, did I mention he has 7? – so after about 6 weeks of talking and getting to know each other, we got married! If you had told me that I would marry a man after 6 weeks of knowing him, I would have told you that you were crazy, but here we are!
We have 10 kids together ranging from age 18 down to 3. I’m completely in love with every single one of them. It’s so fun to watch all of their different personalities.
We have a crazy, busy, full of love life. This is me. This is us. This is our family.
