Hi I'm Tess

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My family is originally from Brazil, but I was born and raised in Utah. I love food, music, soccer and running (even though I'm not the best at it!). I'm currently serving a full-time mission in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and there is no place I'd rather be. Before my mission I was studying to earn a degree in music, but there are so many things I want to do in life that I can never make up my mind!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know following our Savior Jesus Christ is the only way to find true happiness in this life. God is our loving Father in Heaven and has a plan for each one of us - even though that plan may not always seem evident. I know He wants us to be happy and successful in this life, and in the life to come. I have so many weaknesses and so many short-comings, but because of the Atonement of Jesus Christ, I can be forgiven and do my best to be a better person. Knowing this plan gives me purpose and happiness in my life, and has helped me through hard times.

How I live my faith

My faith is everything to me - it makes me happy! Whether it is by being a friend, caring for someone in need, or just talking to someone about the Church, my goal in life is to help others be happy. By studying the Book of Mormon and the Bible, I'm able to pray and receive understanding, direction, and peace in my life. I love to share it with others and see the peace it can bring to their lives. That is why I am currently serving a mission!
