Hi I'm Treya

I'm from sunny California. I am currently serving a mission in New York. I love the Lord and my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a missionary in New York! A mission is 18 months that are dedicated to teaching people about our beliefs and inviting them to come closer to Christ by being baptized into His church. Before I came to New York I went to school at Brigham Young University Idaho, I loved studying there as I worked hard towards becoming a nurse. I put school on hold for a time to come and serve the Lord. I have enjoyed every moment of being a missionary and continue to put my whole heart into God's great work. I have the most incredible family who supports me and has helped me become the person I am today! I have two older brothers and five younger sisters and then two incredible parents whom I love. Our family lost one of my sisters, Madisen, a number of years ago. That time was difficult for my family. Because of the faith we had in our Savior Jesus Christ, because of His atonement and the knowledge that He overcame death we were carried through those times and came out with a greater understanding and appreciation for our Heavenly Fathers plan for us. I am filled with gratitude for having this gospel in my life, having this truth that has turned the hardest trial I've had to face, into the most faith building experience of my life. l miss my sister dearly but I know, with no doubt, that I will see her again. I am a firm believer that families are forever!

Why I am a Mormon

I have been Mormon since I was born which makes the question 'why am I a Mormon' come into my mind often. I am a Mormon because through experiences in my life I have come to know my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I have felt the reality of His atonement for me and all of God's children. I have come to feel of my Heavenly Fathers' never ending love for me. I know that this is the true gospel, through prayer and fasting I have received this knowledge. I have read the Book of Mormon, have studied the words and teachings in the book and have prayed to know if it is the truth. I have personally received that answer for myself and know that God wants His children to come unto Him and if we will keep his commandments, read, study and pray then all can know the truth of the gospel for themselves.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by following the example of my Savior and keeping the commandments. Making the everyday decisions to live right and do good! That's what it's all about, doing good as Christ did while he was here on the earth. So much joy enters my life as I do the simple things that bring me closer to my Heavenly Father. In order to live your faith you have to have it. I am so grateful for my personal faith! As already mentioned, it has carried me through a lot and has brought me much understanding and appreciation for this gospel. I know that as we all live the way Jesus Christ taught then we will return to live with our Heavenly Father.
