Hi I'm Tessa Butterfield

I grew up in Eagle Idaho. I'm a working student and soon to be missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a student at BYU-Idaho and am going on a mission! I'm the youngest of four kids with three older brothers who I love to death. My parents raised us in the gospel and I love them so much. All of my brothers are married and two of them have sweet boys. I'm the happiest aunt alive!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love the Gospel. The Gospel teaches us to be happy and how we can be truly happy is by following in the footsteps of Christ. It's also all about families. I wouldn't have anything if I didn't have them. At times we lose focus and it's hard to remember why we have made the covenants that we have, but ultimately the Gospel brings us to the Savior and makes us better individuals.

How I live my faith

Throughout my life I've held a number of callings. They have ranged anywhere from my service in the Young Women's Program as a Young Woman to serving in Relief Society presidencies in my student wards and a Nursery leader in my home ward. I am now off to serve a mission and am so excited for this new calling.
