Hi I'm Lydia

I grew up in South America. I want to be a curator one day. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a sophomore in college, and am studying Humanities with and emphasis in Art History. There are five kids in my family, and I am second to youngest. My dad is an International Controller for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and we've lived all over the world: South Africa, Ecuador, and Utah. I love to learn, spend time with friends, and be with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have felt the Spirit manifest to me that the Gospel is true. I was baptized when I was eight years old. I've been blessed to grow up in a family that keeps the Church a priority in life, and I hope to continue this. I love knowing that I can be with my family forever. I am a Mormon because I know that The Church is led by a true prophet of God, President Thomas S. Monson. I am a Mormon because I know that when I am trying my best to follow the commandments, my Heavenly Father is blessing me. And I am a Mormon because I know that Heavenly Father has sent His Son to suffer and die for me.

How I live my faith

I serve a calling for my Ward in Provo, Utah. I also look for opportunities to serve those around me, and maybe squeeze some Missionary work in too. I love that the Church is organized so that everyone can have a chance to serve the Lord, whether it be in the home, in a council, as a leader, or just by simply living the Gospel. I live my faith by trying my best to listen to the promptings of the Holy Spirit every day, and trying my best to live each day by my spiritual goals.
