Hi I'm Sister Pettitt!

I love adventure, discovering new places and sushi. I'm a citizen of the world with a very international family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest of seven children, which is common in Utah, but not in France. I grew up in France after my father pursued his (almost) life-long dream to end up there. Right before France, I lived in Holland, for three years, learning a new language I hadn't spoken a word of before. It helped me begin to learn German once I was eleven years old. I was lucky enough to get the "travel-bug" from my parents, giving me a constant desire to travel. I love the idea of discovering something or someplace so completely new, that it forces you out of your comfort zone in order to make the other person feel comfortable having you there. The element of surprise of the foreign has such a good feeling. A feeling I would compare to flying. I love flying! Right now I'm serving a full-time mission in Singapore and Malaysia, Malay-speaking!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because when I was between the ages of sixteen and seventeen I decided to either find out if this church was true and act consequently or leave the religion if the contrary felt right. It took a lot of praying, scripture reading and a sincere desire but eventually I felt that warm feeling, that speeding-up-heart feeling, that testifying truth that I needed to choose. And I chose. Which one? Well, I'm here aren't I?

How I live my faith

I have had several callings (responsibilities) in the church like: * Ward pianist (Sundays I would play while the congregation sang), * Ward music directer (I would direct the singing of the congregation. Not while playing the piano at the same time, obviously), * Ward missionary (I would help the full-time missionaries with organization and good communication with the members of the ward, for example.) and others. I live my faith daily. By trying to be my best, even around strangers, I hope they can tell I'm different. Different in a good way. I strive to think by myself, and not by what the media tells me. I read my scriptures daily, and try to strengthen my relationship not only with God, but with my loved ones, family and friends and people who are different. So... basically everyone I meet. I do the best I can and hope that tomorrow my best will be better.
