Hi I'm Tess Matagi

I am a recent high school graduate, and just finished my first year of college. I'm a mormon

About Me

I love my music, artists like Beyonce, Journey, Michael Jackson, and Jack Johnson. I love all variety of music, just depends on the day of what I want to listen to. I currently just finished my first year of college and loved it! I definitely learned from trial and error, and the Lord has blessed me beyond measure. The experiences I've had throughout the first year of college has led me to the decision in serving the Lord on a full time mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know this gospel to be the true word of God. His plan is the only way for us to return to him. I grew up in the church all my life, but I found myself going through the motions all the way till senior year of high school. I finally found that i do have a testimony of this gospel, and that the plan of salvation is real. It's not just a "religion" but more of a way of life. The gospel is good, and I always want to strive my best to be better, and do good each and every day. We all have our struggles, and that's the beauty of the gospel, is the loving, caring, and forgiving Father in Heaven and Savior Jesus Christ we can lean on for help. A long with the Holy Ghost. This life is full of challenges and I've realized that if we just try out BEST the lord will lead and guide us to him. I love how we learn each and every day, and as long as we do the little things the Lord will do his part in helping us be and do the right thing.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being an example to those I interact with. I play college softball, so it gives me a huge opportunity to be an example to my teammates, coaches, and even those that come to watch us play. Having only 5 members on the team, 3 that are active including myself, it has led me to learn from other people and how they live, but also share my life and how i live with them as well.
