Hi I'm Syrie Barsness

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a homeschooling Mom to 6 wonderful children. We also have small livestock; dairy goats, sheep, and chickens. We like baseball and camping in the back country. I also like to play the cello and violin, spin, knit, and quilt.

Why I am a Mormon

Ever since I was a little girl I felt that God was real and I desired to be near Him, to know more about Him. I attended several churches as a youth but never felt settled about any of them. Something was missing, although I could not say for sure then just what that was. When someone who cared about me invited me to attend the LDS church with her, I felt like I had come home. I eagerly took the missionary discussions and finally it all made sense! I am very grateful to have found the gospel of Jesus Christ! I know he and Heavenly Father are real. I know they care for me and are there to guide me and help me to progress. I know that through my savior's atonement I can be made clean from past sin and also be healed and made whole.

How I live my faith

I serve the in the youth Sunday School teaching 12-14 year olds the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
