Hi I'm Theresa

I grew up in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California. I love this beautiful world we live in, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Well, I was blessed to grow up in a family and place that showed me the wonders and joys of the world. I grew up in a small house hidden away in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California with a red barn and a bit of acreage where the clouds snowed in the winter and the sun shone in the summer. There were always animals of some sort wandering around; dogs, cats, goats, wild turkeys, the occasional mountain lion or two, deer, snakes, lizards, birds....Most of my happiest childhood memories have an animal in them! Now, I am a biology major in college and I plan on doing something with animals, maybe veterinary medicine. Whenever I look at some sort of living creature and see the plain beauty, the complex simplicity, the chaotic order of life, I am filled with a wonderful knowledge of God! I look at these living creatures and in them I see the hand of God!

Why I am a Mormon

Simply put, I am a Mormon because I know that there is a God, that Jesus is the Christ, and that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the Lord's church on earth! I am a Mormon because I know these things are true!

How I live my faith

I have been called to serve a mission for the Church in Brazil, and currently I am serving in Oregon as I wait for my visa! I am so blessed to be able to have this wonderful opportunity to share the good news of the gospel with others! I want to share my love of God and the wonderful plan of Salvation with everyone I meet!
