Hi I'm Tristan

I'm a Utah native. I have Narcolepsy. Best of all, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the second oldest child in a family of seven kids. I was attending UVU for a degree in forensic science, when I put it on hold to serve a full-time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I enjoy crafting jewelry, singing, reading, ballroom dancing, dabbling in rock climbing, and terrible puns.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because I have gained a testimony that is the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. I have read the Book of Mormon, I have lived the principles and standards, but most importantly I have taken the matter to my Heavenly Father through prayer and have received an answer for myself.

How I live my faith

My favorite calling of all time is teaching little children in Primary. I love getting to know these darling children of God and watching their knowledge of the gospel grow. They also say the funniest things - and they are often times the best examples of Christ-like attributes. I also really enjoy working and serving with the young women at girls' camp. For one week a year, we leave behind all the distractions of our busy world and showers to spend time together making new friends and building testimonies in beautiful places dedicated for those purposes. Another wonderful calling I have received is visiting teaching. Visiting a few of the sisters in my ward once a month is a way to serve others and get to know them.

In whom should we have faith?

We should have faith in Jesus Christ. The first principle in the gospel of Jesus Christ as taught by our church is faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. I believe faith is more than just belief, it is trust, and it is action. Faith is acting upon the belief we have in our Savior. Show more Show less
