Hi I'm Rissa

I love to make people laugh. I'm better in water than I am on land. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Grew up in Utah my whole life and I've loved it. I'm currently on a mission to Sacramento, California teaching in American Sign Language. I'm lucky to have a supportive family and friend group that keep me motivated. I'm 20 years old, but I feel like I'm 50. I've been through every up and down a 20 year old can have. I'm lucky that the Lord gives second chances. I have a strong testimony of the atonement and how it can change the hearts of stone to hearts that have grown. The atonement is not just about forgiving sins, its also about forgetting them.

Why I am a Mormon

There's nothing quite like the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. There's a feeling you get, deep inside your soul, that will testify to you that this Church is different. The revelation, the counsel, everything it provides is a way back to Christ. The gospel is never used to cut down an individual. I'm a Mormon for the teachings of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I love being a missionary. Whether it be full time, or just as a member, I love to share the gospel. I want to make every one of God's children understand that they are never alone; they are never too far from the atonement and it's glorious light.
