Hi I'm Tessa

I grew up in St. George, Utah. I'm an English education major and a swim coach, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am attending a university in the hopes of becoming a high school English teacher. I love competitive swimming, reading, and spending time with my family and friends. Swimming has been a big part of my life, and I'm lucky to be a coach now that I have graduated from my club team. I am also a huge Disney fan.

Why I am a Mormon

I joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because I felt my Savior's love when the missionaries came to my door. They taught me the gospel, and I now know that it was an opportunity and an invitation from my Heavenly Father to come closer to Him. I loved learning that I am a daughter of God, and that by following the example of Jesus Christ, I can return to live with Him after this life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending church regularly and doing little things each day that keep me close to God like reading from the Bible and the Book of Mormon and praying. I also try to let other people know my standards so they know what I believe in.
