Hi I'm Lidia

I was born in Northern Province of Yugoslavia. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Sremska Mitrovica, one of the oldest European towns. Rich in culture, museums, dreamy windmills, galloping horses, beautiful monasteries, and architecture; are all reasons why art has become an intricate part of my life. At the age of 15 I started taking courses in leather accessory design. I continued taking many art classes and developed a special love for ceramic sculpture. As an adult I continued my education in Interior Design. Currently I am an owner of a MailNCopy shop and a photography studio. I am also blessed with two wonderful boys, one handsome husband, and beautiful bunny rabbit!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in Vojvodina, Northern Province of Yugoslavia in an ancient town called Sremska Mitrovica. This town was once a capital of the Roman Empire and the city was referred to as the "Glorious mother of cities". When I was 5 years old my family moved to Belgrade, the Capitol. My parents were good people but never taught me about the Gospel. I was not baptized in any church because we were a communistic country. In 1991 I joined the Russian Orthodox church but soon realized that it wasn't the right church for me. I read the scriptures and prayed for a year asking God to show me the right Church. Exactly one year later the missionaries knocked on my door. My mother let them in and I was baptized 2 months later. I was 19 years old. At that time my country was going trough changes, like the end of communism... It was scary but very exciting time for all of us. 1992 was the first year that LDS church was legally introduced and got permission to have prosyliting missionaries. This year, 2011 we celebrate 20 years of the church's existence in Belgrade and Serbia. As one of the first members of our Church in the country we had lots of challenges, it was hard but we kept going. My mom and sister joined as well. In next 2 years I prepared for a mission and served in the England Manchester Mission.

How I live my faith

Joining the LDS Church was one of the greatest blessings in my life. The Gospel gave me hope and knowledge that I can share this life and the next life with my family.
