Hi I'm Trisha

I am left handed and proud of it. I love to go 4-wheeling. I love to fish. I love my family. I'm a missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I played golf in high school, and transitioned to rugby in college for a semester. I worked at the radio station on campus and was able to meet so many new people that I loved as I attended events and interviewed others! I love to read and watch movies, so I hope to either become an editor or a cinematographer through my studies in school. I love spending time with my friends and family because they are the best things in my life. I love to go to the temple and feel the peace that comes with it once I enter.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was younger, my brother left on his mission to serve the Lord and bring others to Christ. I did not understand why he did this, and it made me upset. I was scared about what others thought of me at that time. After my brother returned, he asked me a very simple, yet complicated question. Do I read the Book of Mormon every day? My answer to that was no, and I felt guilty for it. I walked into my room as soon as I could and opened the scriptures right away. I read every single day after that, and felt the peace and comfort that came from it. I didn't realize how much it had impacted my life for years. What I didn't notice then but what is as clear as day to me now, is how much my self esteem raised over that period of time. After two years of reading the Book of Mormon, I was much happier and confident in myself. I wasn't afraid to be me anymore. It has been over six years since I was asked that question by my brother, and I have not missed one day of reading the scriptures, whether it be a verse, a chapter, or more, since that day. I make time for the scriptures because I know how much it has blessed my life, and is continuing to do so. My personality changed greatly, and I am grateful to have the gospel in my life. I am glad that I was able to grow up having the knowledge that my Savior and Redeemer loves me, because that is what made me feel truly happy. I have prayed to my Father in Heaven and received a testimony of the Book of Mormon and its truth. I have prayed seeking guidance, and found peace. Prayer is real. It is true. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the true church of God. It was restored by the Prophet Joseph Smith. I am thankful he risked his life countless times to let me have this knowledge. Family is the most important thing to me. I know I can be with them for eternity because of the gospel.

How I live my faith

I attend church meetings every Sunday, and my calling is the Music Director. I lead the music for all the members of the ward as we are gathered to learn of the gospel. I read the Book of Mormon every day without fail because it has strengthened me in countless ways, and continues to do so.
