Hi I'm Sydnee

I'm a biology major, I speak Norwegian, I'm a Washingtonian, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student, studying biology. I love to hike, and to swim, and to read. I love playing volleyball. I also like traveling, and speak german, and am learning norwegian, so I can move to norway for a year and a half.

Why I am a Mormon

Prayer and Scripture study. When we pray or read from the scriptures we can feel close to God, and when we feel close to God, we can receive guidance and direction for our lives. I know God answers prayers, and I know He has let me know that His church is restored on the earth today, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I also love what the church does for me: makes me want to be a better person, surrounds me with a support system which also desires good, helps me find opportunities to serve those around me, and fills me with love. These experiences help confirm the truth that not only is being Mormon the right thing, its also a good thing.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by choosing to believe. I am fully aware that we all have our agency, and that our choices bring about consequences. Choosing to believe in God brings blessings and when you recognize those blessings, your faith in God grows.I think the best way to live my faith is to try and become better. To outstretch my yesterdays with my todays. And to set Chris as my exemplar, and to try to become more like Him.

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Yes. It makes sense. God loves all of His children. He wants us to know about Him so we can know how to get help from Him and blessings from Him. A prophet's job is to direct people to Jesus Christ. A prophet recieves God's message and the authority to act in God's name for the salvation of souls. With so many different ideas and religions out there today, the world needs a prophet. We need clarity. 200 years ago, the world was finally ready again to have a prophet, and that is exactly what God did. He called a prophet to lead and guide the world to Jesus Christ.
