Hi I'm Tessa Herrmann

I am Tessa but right now I go by Sister Herrmann as I serve a mission in Thailand. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Tessa and I am now a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I will be serving the people of Thailand and teaching them the gospel. I am excited to start this adventure and grow closer to my Savior and the people of Thailand. I recently finished my freshman year at BYU and am majoring in Elementary Education. My family are my best friends and I love them more than anything. I am from Orem, Utah but born in Illinois. I am the 4th child of 5. I have 3 nephews that are the center of my world. I love soccer, golf, boating, and swimming! I am always up for an adventure. Pink is my favorite color. The temple has a special place in my heart.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love Jesus Christ and my Heavenly Father. I know the gospel is true with all my heart. My Savior is always there for me and I turn to him for everything. The gospel has brought my so much joy and happiness. It is the reason for who I am today.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by daily re-commitment to my Savior and to the gospel. I do this by prayer, scripture study, service, temple attendance, obeying the commandments and teaching the gospel to others. I feel that I can help others have the same happiness I enjoy in my own life when they learn about the gospel of Jesus Christ. Being a missionary is hard work, but it is also the greatest work and the one that beings me the most joy.
