About Me

Hi my name is Trey Jensen. I am 21 years old and right now I am currently serving in the Texas McAllen Mission, but before coming to the great state of Texas I lived in Carson City, Nevada. There I grew up most of my life, but since being out on my mission my family has moved to Idaho and they have been there for almost a year now. Before serving a misson I was able to attend one year of college in California to begin my education and i also had the great opportunity to play football as well. After my mission I plan on transfering to Utah State University and continuing my education and maybe trying to walk on for their football team. As you can see I love football. Through my years growing up I played football, basketball, and ran track. I like to stay pretty active and always on the go. I also love to snowboard, wakeboard, and really anything out doors. I always seem to be doing something that involves doing some type of physical act and gets your heart going. I also love to just hung out with friends, listen to muisc, and just have a good time.

Why I am a Mormon

Why I am a Mormon? Growing up in the church my whole life I never had the strongest testimony. I was always the one just going through the motions. Going to church because my parents made me. Really living off their testimonies and not my own. It really wasnt until I hit the lowest and most darkess time in my life where I knew I needed to change. Where I knew that if I didn't make a change it would affect the whole rest of my life. So as I decided to start my change, it first started with my attitude. Which was the hardest part. I had "fake it till I made it". I changed my attitude about church, about reading the scriptures, about praying, and I started to feeling something different from with in. I started to fill the Love of our Heavenly Father with in me. I started to fill more at peace. I came to know that this truly was Christ's church. That it was restored through the Prophet Joseph Smith. I came to know that the Book of Mormon was truly another testament of Jesus Christ. I came to know that Christ Lives and that he loves each and everyone of us no matter of our imperfections and the mistakes that we make. That through his Atonement that we can be forgiven and return back and live with him once again.

How I live my faith

Right now the biggest way that I am living my faith is by serving my Father in Heaven for 2 years. I really try my hardest each and everyday to be the best person I can be and be the best example for others that I come in contact with. I always try to encourage and help people to try and reach their full potential and become the the people that our Heavenly Father wants them to become.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?
