Hi I'm Tresan

I'm a Mormon. I am a corn-fed, small town girl from Idaho. I work as a mother and wife 24/7 and I love my life!

About Me

I am a farmer's daughter and have been taught to work hard and to work until the job is finished. I have been blessed to have my family close and to have strong relationships with them through the opportunity to work with them. There is something that happens to a family when you sweat together. My hobbies include gymnastics, reading, exercise, cooking, blogging, four wheeling, horseriding, camping, and snowboarding. These are just a few. I went to college studying in Child Development and Humanities. This all in the pursuit of my dream job: a housewife and mother. All I have ever dreamed of doing is following the steps of my own mother. I have been blessed to be given the opportunity to do so, I love being able to stay at home raising my children.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a child of God. We all are. Heavenly Father loves us and gave us the opportunity to come to earth so we could gain a body like he does. We also had to go through mortal challenges and make mistakes. That is why He sent His Son, Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ came and lived on this earth, he was also crucified and raised on the third day. He suffered in the garden of Gethsemane all of the pains, sins, sicknesses, infirmities, transgressions, weaknesses, and fears. He did this so we could use that atonement to cleanse ourselves through repentance so we can return to their presence. He also did it so He could understand us and know how to best help us overcome all our weaknesses. I know Joseph Smith saw Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ when he prayed to know what church is true. I know he restored the Church of Jesus Christ. Through him, Jesus restored the priesthood, gave us temples where we can unite our families eternally and prepare to enter His kingdom. He also blessed us with the gift of the Holy Ghost which will help us and testify of truth. I know this church is true. I know that Jesus lives and we all can live because He does. I know God loves us and blesses us. I know he listens to us when we pray and wants us to do so often. I know his current prophet, Thomas S Monson is given the knowledge to guide this church, Jesus’s church upon this earth.

How I live my faith

I am not perfect, and I never will be in this life. Jesus expects us to try though, we are suppose to do the best we can to follow Him and his commandments. I try to live my faith day by day, I pray for help to become better the next day and the day after that. Heavenly Father has blessed me immensely with a family of my own. I need to live my faith through example. The best way to teach is by following the path you would like them to follow as well. I try to live my life in such a way that I can qualify for Jesus and Heavenly Father’s help, I need it! While I will never reach perfection in this life, Jesus wants me to endure to the end. He wants me to continue trying. He will cover the rest, but only after I do all I can do.
