Hi I'm Tori Hull

I am serving as a missionary in the Texas Houston East Mission, Spanish speaking. I am a Mormon.

About Me

So I am a total nerd. I love Star Trek, Star Wars, Sherlock, Harry Potter and pretty much everything else. But I mostly love The Lord of the Rings. I went to school to get my prerequisites for nursing school. When I am not at work, school, or church, or doing something related to one of those, I love to read, work out, and sing. I am a health nut, and I am currently a missionary serving a mission in the Texas Houston East Mission, Spanish Speaking.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the church. Sometimes I envied converts because they obviously had that moment when the missionaries were teaching them that they gained their testimony. I didn't gain mine until I was 18 years old and started attending the Young Single Adult Ward where I lived. The members there were fantastic and so was our Bishop. Their testimonies and light penetrated my soul. The big theme in that ward was missionary work. I soon gained a testimony of missionary work and quickly realized how blessed I had been all my life to have lived the gospel. I realized then that the gospel was the reason why I was so happy in life. I soon decided to serve a mission so that I could tell other people about how they can receive just as much happiness in their life, as I do in mine. And now I am living that being able to be a missionary. It is difficult, but it is the best decision I have ever made. I love being a Mormon and a missionary!

How I live my faith

Back at home, I was the first counselor in our women's group, Relief Society. Other than trying to keep the commandments and live my life accordingly, I spent a lot of time with the missionaries and help them with their lessons as I prepared to be a missionary myself. Now I get to represent the Lord everyday as a missionary in Texas!

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

Tori Hull
A testimony is simply what you believe in this gospel. When people talk of strengthening their testimony, they are saying that what they believe in they believe in more, or what they didn't previously know, they gained a knowledge of. Bearing or sharing your testimony is telling others of what you believe. A testimony is a beautiful witness to yourself and everyone around you. Show more Show less
