HOWDY! My name is Tori Moore and I'm a sophomore here at Texas A&M. I am from the small town of Sulphur Springs, TX. I love people, food, sleep, and Aggie Football (most of the time!) One of my favorite things to do is step out of a blissful moment and just soak in every single second of the joy and laughter being shared around me by the people I love. I am so passionate about my friends and family and am thankful for the person they have shaped me to be today.
Why did you join the Pursuit Ministries?
I joined the Pursuit Ministries because my heart desired to find a group of girls who loved the Lord and were chasing after His heart. And wow, was I blessed! It is so important to have good company with girls who will call you out and then call you forward.
What is your favorite bible verse and why?
My favorite bible verse is Matthew 11:28. Jesus says, "Come to me, all you who are weak and weary, and I will give you rest." This verse has pushed me through my college semesters. At times when I am feeling stressed and overwhelmed, I can look to this verse and find rest and peace in the Lord.
Words of encouragement for High School/Middle School Girls:
Wanna know the craziest, most beautiful truth you will ever hear in your entire life? Here it goes: the Creator of this ENTIRE universe believes YOU are perfect just the way you are, and He sent his son to the cross for YOU. He has fearfully and wonderfully made you in His image, and He loves both the best and worst parts about you. How amazing is that? Sure, life gets hard, but how wonderful is it that we get to rest in the hope that our Savior has graciously given us. Step back and let God do work in your life. Don't worry about what the future brings and give Him control. He will NEVER lead you down the wrong path, and the plans He has designed for your life far surpass any plans you could ever imagine. You are so beautiful, and you are so loved.
