Hi I'm Torie Cooper

I´m an Arizonian, adopted Argentine, I love life, and I´m a Mormon.

About Me

I went to college last year as a freshman and absolutely loved school. I had a great time and made tons of new friends who I am very close to. I have put aside college for now, though, in preparation of serving an LDS mission. I will be going to Argentina to share the truths I know about Jesus Christ and this gospel. I am very excited. I play the piano but I struggle to practice all the time. I love science with a passion. At school, I took a dinosaurs class and I am majoring in Chemistry. I also love to play sports and exercise. Gotta get those endorphins!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because I love the way this religion makes me feel. I feel calm and peaceful on a regular basis. I know why I am here and where I am going which helps me to have foresight on how my decisions are going to affect my future. I love Jesus so much because of his atonement. I know that this church is the true church. I know this because I have felt it in my life and when I read my scriptures, I feel the Holy Spirit guiding me. I know that prophets are necessary to our lives and I am so grateful we have a prophet today! I have felt the Lord guiding me so much in my life. He is always there, whether it is reading the scriptures, taking tests, talking to others, or just comforting me, He is always by my side and I know that He is by yours as well. I know this because I have seen the effects of His love in others, especially in those closest to me. I love being a mormon and I´m grateful that I am one!

How I live my faith

The way I live my faith is simply by helping people. I like to help people to know that there are always people to help them or even to just talk to them. I am going on a mission where I will be doing nothing but service for a year and a half! As a whole, I live my faith quietly. I answer questions and say the things I think need to be said, but I try to just be a really good friend. I love to share the gospel. I see people change their lives on a daily basis here in Argentina and it is something beautiful! There is a happiness with living this faith. I love to help others and share the good word of God and help others be happy! right now, I live my faith as a missionary. When this time is over, I will live my faith in every part of my life. sometimes quietly through example, and sometimes by opening my mouth and sharing what I know to be true!

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Torie Cooper
I am a missionary and I love it. My purpose as a missionary is to invite people to come closer to Christ. As I have drawn closer to Christ in my life, I have been blessed with a desire to share those same feelings with everyone else! I want to help people be close to Christ because in my life I know how important it is to love our Savior. I want others to feel the joy that I feel as I become closer to my Savior.
