Hi I'm Tres

I'm a Mormon. I was born and raised in Utah and have been a Mormon my whole life. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am an outgoing woman who loves to teach, play sports, exercise and hang out with my family. I enjoy movies, relaxing, food network and cooking when I have the time. I am the type of person who makes lists or I forget things. I am constantly making goals for myself. I am optimistic and try to do a little better every day in all aspects of my life. My motto is "One day at a time."

Why I am a Mormon

I have always know inside my heart that there was something special about being a Mormon. Having the knowledge of God's plan for me provided hope to continue on through my trials. I have always known in my heart that my Heavenly Father would never give up on me. I feel happy knowing that the Lord will ALWAYS be there for me. It is comforting to know I have a Savior who willingly suffered and died for me so I could live. The Atonement of Jesus Christ has changed my life. It has made me a new person every time I turn to Him. Knowing that I can be forgiven and feeling of God's mercy and love for me; his daughter, is priceless. Why am I a Mormon? I am a Mormon because it gives me hope, happiness and an opportunity to be whole through the Atonement of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

Living as a single woman; I have many ways to be involved in the church. Our ward holds a social gathering with a spiritual lesson on Monday nights. This is called family home evening. This is a chance to socialize, create unity with the ward and gain spiritual insights. I have had the opportunity to give a lesson at family home evening. This helps me to gain more understanding on a gospel topic and teach it to others. Visiting teaching is a great service to all the sisters (women) in the ward. My companion and I are assigned to 3 sisters and go to their homes to visit them and teach a short lesson. This gives us as sisters in the ward a chance to show love and create unity. Service projects are always available to anyone to participate in including; yard clean ups, clothing drives, hygiene kits for other countries, Christmas packages. etc. This is another example of creating unity in a ward setting.
