Hi I'm Selesitila Tenney

I am Maori and Samoan. Scottsdale, Arizona Mission. AND I'M A MORMON & I Know it, Live it and absolutely Love it! :)

About Me

I am nineteen and the oldest of six children in my family. I love to do polynesian dancing. I love to travel. I love to be with my family. I love to make new friends. I am a sophomore in college now and majoring in psychology (indefinitely) lol. I am going to be serving a mission in Scottsdale, Arizona and report to the Mexico MTC on September, 17th 2014.

Why I am a Mormon

I was blessed to be born into the church and to have my parents be strong members of the church. But it was through my grandparents conversion on both of my parents sides that I have had the opportunity to be blessed with this gospel. Of course, at a young age I didn't fully understand the gospel and I just went along with my parents. But as I have grown, my belief has grown and I have been able to gain my own knowledge and love for this gospel. I have seen the Lords hand in my life for my whole life, and there is no way I can deny all the wonderful blessings I have been blessed with. Through this gospel I am so grateful to know that I can be with my family forever and that the Lord gives me second chances, even though I am far from perfect, he still loves me fully and completely. The happiness this gospel brings me is so incredible and I hope for everyone to be able to feel the joy I feel as well. I love my life and I know Gods plan for me is way more bigger than anything I could imagine for myself. I love this gospel and I love everything about it.

How I live my faith

I have the opportunity to visit with friends in the my church and just be able to catch up with them and help them with whatever they are in need help of. I also have the opportunity to teach all the ladies in my church about Jesus Christ and they also teach me a lot at the same time. And now, I have recently been called to serve as a full-time missionary for 18 months to share my knowledge and love for my church to the people of Arizona.
