Hi I'm Tressa

I grew up in sunny Southern California. I leave in 40 days to serve a full-time mission in New Hampshire. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am the second youngest of five children. I was raised by a single father who worked hard to make sure we were all taken care of. I attended BYU Idaho for two semesters before deciding to go on a mission. I love to spend time with my family and play water polo.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints my whole life. For a long time I relied on the testimony of my father and the testimony of those around me. I quickly realized that that wasn't enough. I needed to know for myself whether or not the things I have been taught my whole life were true. I searched for an answer and I kept expecting some huge sign or for something miraculous but instead what I got was a stillness and a peaceful feeling that consumed me completely. I soon came to the conclusion that I had known all along that this church is true and that its teachings were correct. I am a Mormon because I know it to be true, I live its teachings, and I love it!

How I live my faith

I am currently preparing to serve a full-time mission in New Hampshire! I leave in just 40 short days! I spend a lot of time with the full-time sister missionaries assigned to my ward. I love to teach and share with people the sweet message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and how it brings peace and hope to those who are truly willing to change and follow the Savior's teachings. Nothing brings me more joy than sharing what I love with the people around me.
