Hi I'm Skye

I'm from Arizona, I'm a Johnny Cash fan, I'm a bit of an off-road enthusiast and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hey, I'm Skye. I was born in Phoenix Arizona but grew up in a small town an hour north of Pheonix called Cordes Lakes. I am the youngest in my family but I really do love it. I have three older brohters and four older sisters. My parents have been a shining example for me because they have been married for over 30 years. My family are converts by very unique means but the missionaries made the way possible for us to come together as a family and have christ at the center of out lives. My family is very important to me and has been my greatest blessing but through all of the madness, chaos and hardships my family has been through one things has remained and that is our testimonies. Without the love and care of my family I would be in a very dark and frightening place. I know exactly where I would be if it weren't for the willingness of my family to reach out and save me and the thought scares me. I can honestly say that I am happy in my life. As uncertain as the furture can be I am still happy and am not worried. Let come what may but this I do know, God will not forsake the those who follow him. I am a very passionate person. There are so many things in my life that I want to do and I have decided to see how many I can accomplish. I love Off-Roading, its a thrill! Johnny Cash is a Hero of mine because I I can relate to him and his story of Redmeption. I love the Guitar and Drums because music is a passion. I will let nothing stand in my way of what I want.

Why I am a Mormon

We all have our stories. Each one unique to us. Stories that can inspire and help those who have been through similar experiences. Its all been my choice. Much of my life I had leaned on the words and testimony of others. I was just going through the motions never really finding out for myself if any of this was true. I didn't even know if God was real... that was the most frightening thought for me. I was 16 years old when this question came into my mind. "Does God exist?" I was scared, I felt so alone, I feared I would never find out. There was only one comforting thought that followed. "If any of you lack wisdom Let him ask of God who giveth to all men liberally and upbraideth not and it shall be Given him." James 1:5 This simple scripture echoed in my mind to the point where I could no longer stand idiolly by. I knelt down and offered the most sincere but simple prayer, asking a simple question. "God, if there is a God... are you real? Do you exsist?" What followed was one of the most powerful experiences I have ever had that has grounded me in the Faith of Jesus Christ so much so that I will now testify with all conviction and sincerity That God, our Loving heavenly Father, is real That His Son Jesus The Christ Lives!!! I will declare this and testify of this even if it leads to my death. I whole heartedly stand by that. I know it, God knows it. I cannot nor will I ever deny this. This is what I know for sure.

How I live my faith

When you have a faith, trust, desire and knowledge of this the Gospel of Jesus Christ... you just want to. At the very least I want to. Thats where it starts. A disire. Thats where it started with me. "For God so loved the world that he gave His only Begotten Son..." John 3:16 Christ laid down His life for us becuase he Loved us all! I live it because of that love. I want to... have that same kind of Love for every person in this world. This is why I live it... this is how I live it. Christ did set the ultimate example! I must follow Him. Love is the motivating factor of the universe. Love for God, love for other people, love for the things that we do and enjoy. There is a reason behind evey commandment, every trial, every good and bad thing. IF you can find that reason... at least for me, life is easier to live and enjoy. One of the greatest things we can do... that I can do to tell you how I/we live my/our faith. We live what we preach. I do everything in my power to be true to our Father in Heaven, to be "...Loyal to the Royal with in you" Elaine S. Dalton. Its difficult to explain. Going to church, reading the scriptures, serving a full time mission... it all boils down to... I just live it... and enjoy it!
