Hi I'm Tracey Beo

From Tri-Cities Washington. Went to Dixie State University. Called to serve in the New Mexico Albuquerque Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have grown up and lived in the same place for pretty much my whole life. I'm from a family of five and I'm the oldest of three kids. I went to a year of college in St George, Utah and I loved it! I met so many amazing people and got a chance to experience life on my own! I'm currently home working for the summer to save up money for my mission that I will be leaving for in a couple of months. I love being outdoors, hiking, fishing, and just being out in the sun. I love to read! I'm pretty shy and awkward at first, but I slowly get more comfortable once I've gotten to know people better. And I've definitely been getting better at talking to people. Hopefully I'll be a pro by the time I'm done with my mission! My plans when I get home are to transfer schools and go towards become a Physical Therapy Assistant. I work at a Physical Therapy office currently as an Aide and I absolutely love it! I love the people and I love that we get the chance to help through a difficult time in their lives! Then after that I'll possibly consider going even further and becoming a certified Physical Therapist, but we'll see! Well...that's the shortened version of me!

Why I am a Mormon

I've been lucky enough to grow up in the church. I know that I definitely take it for granted so often. But the gospel brings so much joy and happiness into my life. I cannot deny the feelings of truthfulness that I get when learning more and more about the church. It's a continual growing and learning process and I like that about this church. There is always something new to be learned and always personal revelation to be received. I know without a shadow of a doubt that this church is true. That it was restored on this earth by the Prophet Joseph Smith. I know that Thomas S. Monson is our living prophet today and that through him we can receive directions and guidance straight from God. I know that the Book of Mormon is true. I've read it all the way through from cover to cover and cannot deny the truthfulness of it. I know that the Holy Ghost is real and that he can testify to us of truth and give us guidance, peace and comfort when we need it. I know that my Heavenly Father loves me and knows me better than I know myself. He knows what I need and He knows when I need it. I know that I can pray to Him at anytime, anywhere and that He will always be there to hear me. I know that my Saviors lives and that he loves me. I am forever grateful for the Atonement and everything he has done for me and continues to do for me. I love my Heavenly Father and Savior with all my heart, might, mind, and soul. I can't wait to be an instrument in their hands and to share this testimony that I have with the people of New Mexico. I know that if I follow the commandments and do the best that I possibly can in this life that someday I will be able to enter into the kingdom of heaven to live with my Heavenly Father and my loved ones for eternity. I know that families are forever and I love mine so very much! I am so incredibly grateful for everything that this church and this knowledge brings me in my life.

How I live my faith

I have recently made the decision to serve the Lord for the next 18 months of my life and go on a mission. I have been called to serve in the New Mexico Albuquerque Mission and I could not be more excited for this opportunity. I'll be leaving in November of this year and during the next couple of months I'll be preparing to share my testimony with the many people that I know will be placed in my path. I'll be going out with the sister missionaries from my ward, preparing to enter into the temple and make sacred covenants. I'll be reading my scriptures and studying the gospel so that I can be as prepared as I possibly can to share the knowledge that I have about this church with others. Giving up 18 months of my life is quite the sacrifice in the eyes of some, but I know it will be the best year and a half of my life.
