Hi I'm Sydney

I'm a college student, smiling is my favorite, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a small town girl from Northern California attending school at Brigham Young University. I am studying English literature. I love traveling the world and learning about different languages and cultures. I recently returned from serving an 18 month mission in Thailand.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I know that the gospel of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true. Jesus is the Christ. He lives and loves. It's plain and simple. Living it every day makes me happier than I can even begin to describe! It gives me hope, and makes me a better and happier person. That is what Christ's church on the earth is today - a message of hope and gladness. It provides a path for eternal happiness with our loved ones - the kind of joy that never ends! I love that.

How I live my faith

I live my faith every day. Because I grew up in an area with so few Mormons, I stuck out because of my different beliefs and actions. I really didn't mind, though! I like being different, and I love answering questions about my religion. My favorite question that I am asked is, "Why are you so happy all the time?" I love answering that question, because there are so many different reasons, but I think the main reason is because I have built my life on the foundations of the gospel of Jesus Christ, and I know that I have a Father in Heaven and a Savior who love me personally and perfectly. Knowing that I am a child of God has changed my entire outlook on life and helps me to keep a positive perspective on everything. It is through Jesus Christ that I have become the happy person that I am today, and I am forever grateful.This is the message that I get to share with the people of Thailand every single day for a year and a half. Nothing could make me happier than helping others have a personal relationship with Christ and understanding the joy that it can bring.

Are Mormons Christians?

Sydney
The simple answer to this is YES! We know that Jesus Christ is the living Son of God, who died for our sins on the cross and was resurrected. He is our Savior and Redeemer, and that through his Atonement, we have been provided with the opportunity of repentance and eternal life. He is the center of our faith and the head of our Church.
