Hi I'm Trisha R

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a single mother of a 15 year old girl.I work at a Historic Hotel in a small town. We lived in this town 4 yrs but before lived in San Diego, CA all our lives. I'm also a recovering addict. I'm a very loving person and love to meet new people and try new things

Why I am a Mormon

I have always searched for God but never looked in the right places. I've done many things I'm not proud of and have always lived life full of guilt. I've been a member just over a year and have had life changing blessings the whole way. I went to a friends baptism and felt like for the first time in my life I felt overwhelming love and friendship. I felt The Holy Ghost for the first time and so strong I knew I was home. Began getting lessons from the missionaries and knew in my heart I was hearing the truth. I have gotten my endowments and follow Gods word. I have yet to meet my life partner but I know God has a plan for that so I am patient. Lastly I have no more guilt or sadness I know now God has forgiven me I just had to ask. Now all I have is love in my heart and welcome new experiences as a child of God.

How I live my faith

I have a calling in primary as a teacher which I love. I try to participate in all women activities and activities with the youth.Since I'm a new member I enjoy working with the youth because it helps me learn as well. Sometimes its easier hearing it from different point of views.

What do Mormons believe about family?

Trisha R
In “The Family: A Proclamation to the World” many Mormon beliefs about families are outlined. One of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints’ core beliefs is that family relationships can last forever—not just for this life. Just as some of life’s sweetest joys can come through family associations, the loss of a beloved family member can be a source of our deepest sorrows. But death does not need to be the end of our relationships with cherished loved ones. The Lord revealed to the Prophet Joseph Smith that the “same sociality which exists among us here will exist among us there [in eternity], only it will be coupled with eternal glory” (Doctrine and Covenants 130:2). Family members who accept the Atonement of Jesus Christ and follow His example can be together forever through sacred ordinances performed in God’s holy temples. Jesus gave to Peter the power to have things sealed on earth and sealed in heaven (Matthew 16:19). This same sealing power was restored to Joseph Smith. Mormon’s believe that they can be “sealed” or bound together through His power enabling them to live together in eternity. Show more Show less
