Hi I'm Skyler

I play tennis, I love Dogs, I am an avid wake-boarder, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hey I am Skyler, I come from a loving home and I am the youngest of three. My two older sisters say I am spoiled, and yes, they are right. I am from St. George Utah, and am currently serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the incredible Spokane Washington Mission. I love to play tennis, deep sea fish, snowmobile, wake-board, water ski, and work with my father. My father and mother are some of my greatest examples, they taught me to work and to give everything all I have.

Why I am a Mormon

Well the reason I am a Mormon, is because I know it to be the lords only true living gospel on the earth. I have sincerely sought the lord in prayer to help my know the truth of what my parents taught me while I was growing up. I know by living the gospel of Jesus Christ that we can find life to be restful and easy, as the lord taught it should be. If we have faith in him, and have the desire to change and repent, then we can follow our savior more closely by being baptized, and receiving the gift of the holy ghost, so that we can stay strong and endure to the end. The gospel is something so marvelous and if we live it daily, the lord will make our burdens light. Now that doesn't mean he is going to take away the struggles, but he will strengthen us in our times of need, and provide a light, and the depths of dispare. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the lords church on the earth and that we have a living day prophet, I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of god for us in these days. The lord saved that ancient record for us to know that he is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. I know that the savior loves us all so much, he loves me just as much as he loves the children in India. I know that as we strive to become more like the savior, that he will support and lift us, and help us to become who he wants us to be. sometimes it seems like he is asking us to walk on water, but he always provides a way, he helps us to do the impossible. i know we can do anything with him, that if he commands us to walk on water, then we truly can walk on water. I know Jesus Christ Lives, I know he is the son of god, and I know he atoned for us. I am so grateful for him. I know He Lives.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by giving the lord all I have. When he says "jump", I say "how high?". I know my mother wishes I would say that to her. I live my faith, by being obedient to the commandments, honouring and loving my parents and living the life the god has in store for me. I live my faith by trying constantly to have the constant companionship of the holy ghost.

Love the sinner, hate the Sin. Homosexuality is something not ordained of god, and its not that we hate people who participate as such, but that we just don't agree with the practice. Love the people, hate the sin. Show more Show less
