Hi I'm Trey Petersen

I grew up in a little agricultural town in Washington. I am attending college at BYU, and plan on serving a mission.

About Me

I love playing sports! Basketball is my favorite, but I also enjoy football and track. I love anything that has to do with the water, and I have been swimming since before I can remember. I love hanging out with friends and having a great time. One of the things I love to do is to cook. I am constantly watching the cooking channel or food network. Another hobby that comes with cooking is eating, and I would say that eating is one of my hobbies. I love trying new things, and am almost willing to try anything.

Why I am a Mormon

I love this Gospel so much! I have had it in my life since I was born, and have taken advantage of it. I never realized until a few years ago how much happiness it brings to you and your family. Knowing God's plan for us gives this life meaning. This time on Earth is a chance for us to prepare to meet God. Not a single person, other than Jesus Christ, will ever be perfect. This is why we need the Atonement of Jesus Christ in our lives. He took upon himself all the sins of the world, so that we may be able to repent and be forgiven, and ultimately return to live with God again. I love to share with people that they have the opportunity to be forgiven and feel without guilt for bad things they have done in their life. I love knowing that God is merciful, and loves us so much he sent his son, Jesus Christ, to die for us. He gave every last one of his children the exact same opportunity, the ability to live with our Heavenly Father once more and for eternity. I am a Mormon because I love the happiness and security that it brings in my life.

How I live my faith

I love sharing a message about Jesus Christ with people. Also, showing people the love that God has for them, and the fact that he is our loving Heavenly Father. I want to give every person the same opportunity I have had my whole life, the chance to come closer to Jesus Christ and know the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I try and live my faith through actions, because faith is an action word. I love to serve people, and am so excited to serve a mission where I can do it all the time. I love going to church every Sunday and listening to the talks and lessons that have been prepared. It is always a great time to feel the Spirit.
