Hi I'm Trese Judd

I am a Mormon girl and proud to be a member of the Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

About Me

Raised Catholic and got a great foundation of learning about God. Joined the church in 1972, when my brother was dying of cancer and I wanted to know where he was going to go when he died. The missionaries came to our door, for my husband and I , and began to teach us. We both joined the church.  They called us Golden Contacts because when hearing the gospel we were ready to be baptized right away. 

Why I am a Mormon

I love that there are two witnesses in everything.....The Bible of one Hemisphere and the Book of Mormon of another Hemisphere. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, bears His name and Is the same Church that Jesus organized upon the earth. 

How I live my faith

I live my faith by exercising it. By going to church, trying to live the gospel, I am living it by faith and trusting Gods words/

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Trese Judd
Family is what makes us happy. Being a part of a family, and I was lucky to have 11 in ours, brings me joy just being in their presence. When you are part of a family you have direction, you feel loved and it brings great joy. Being part of a family in the church is the same....We have an eternal family here on earth and we will continue in the eternities after this life. Show more Show less

Who is the Mormon prophet today?

Trese Judd
Our Mormon Prophet today is President Thomas S. Monson. I always enjoyed his story telling and now that he is a prophet you see a even more humble man. You can see his goodness and when you hear his family talk you know he has led a kind and gentle life full of service. Show more Show less

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Trese Judd

How do I become a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon Church)?

Trese Judd
You become a member by learning about the gospel, accepting it in your heart, repenting of any sins and preparing for baptism. BAPTISM is the key to the gate . You are a member once you are baptised. Those that did not hear the gospel in this life, will have a chance to hear it in the next life and decide if they want to accept it. If accepted.....they can enter baptism by proxy in the temples on the earth by worthy members.  Show more Show less
