Tedi Tuttle Wixom born in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, USA grew up far from hospitals and medical technology in pristine Idaho surrounded by high mountain lakes. Raised by an artist mother who taught school, her entire family became immersed in art, music, and books and naturally learned to love the beauties of the outdoors. Her mother read Arabian Knight Tales, Bible Stories, and Fairy tales to her five daughters. In her youth, Tedi also enjoyed reading encyclopedias, dictionaries, and maps while being raised by self-sufficient pioneer stalk that helped tame the Wild Western Frontier.She began her formal education at Ricks College (BYU-Idaho) in commercial art and design although she loved basketball, softball, volleyball, and track and could have easily enrolled as a PE major. After obtaining her Associate Degree she served a Mission to teach the gospel in Tallahassee Florida, USA 18 months before meeting and marrying an Idaho dairyman. A transformation became inevitable when they fell on hard times and liquidated their farm assets. Thus, they returned to BYU at Provo, USA where her husband completed his Master's Degree and she began her journey to complete a Bachelor's Degree in English.Nine children later she recently returned to BYU to finish her degree.
