Hi I'm Torie

Raised in Utah. I play tennis. Preparing to serve the Lord in the Dominican Republic Santiago Mission. July 18, 2013!

About Me

My name is Torie. I'm 19 years old. I was born in California but raised in Utah. I play tennis and just finished up playing my freshman year for a school in Southern Arizona. I am preparing to serve a mission in the Dominican Republic Santiago mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because my parents chose to teach us of its truth. I grew up in the church and have seen others fall away or not follow the commandments and I have seen how it has changed them. The Gospel is the only true happiness and is the answer to all of our struggles. I know that I can turn to prayer whenever I need to. Whenever I am sad, discouraged, angry, or confused. I am never alone.

How I live my faith

I serve others by trying to share the gospel with them. Growing up in Utah I didn't have very many opportunities because everyone around me was already a member. But, when I moved to Arizona I made it a goal to share the gospel with some body new every week. By looking for ways to share the gospel, I was able to share with somebody every single day. It was amazing! It really helped me decide to go on a mission. There is no other happiness than sharing the truthfulness of the gospel! I am so excited to continue my service by serving the Lord and sharing the gospel to the people of the Dominican Republic.
