Hi I'm Skyler

I'm married to my best friend, I love science, I speak Spanish, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 22 years old. I enjoy outdoor things especially hiking, skiing, wake boarding, and water skiing. I love riding motorcycles. These things are always more enjoyable when I am doing them with my sweet wife. I work at a lab in the infectious disease department. I love science and learning about the world around me. Knowledge is something for which I am constantly searching.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon family but I decided to follow Christ on my own. My parents taught me correct principles and I decided to govern myself and follow the Savior. I don't have an inspirational story to share of how I came to know that this is the true church. That knowledge came to me line upon line. But that doesn't mean that I would ever change who I am... who I decided to be. Because I will never stop being a follower of Jesus Christ. I continue to try my hardest each day of my life to be faithful to His teachings knowing that I don't have to be perfect, and that through his infinite grace, and my diligent effort, I can be perfected one step, one mistake at a time. There are a thousand elements of my testimony that apply to why I know that this is the church that Christ established. One of those elements is the Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ. This is more than just a book. It's the word of God. My favorite story in the Book of Mormon is Enos. I relate to Enos a lot because he was a sinner, but then he was forgiven. And just like him when I felt the forgiveness of the Lord Jesus Christ I decided to go and tell everyone about it. The Book of Mormon is true, and because of that I know that Jesus Christ is the son of God and this is His one and only church, of which, I am a member. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. That's why I'm a Mormon

How I live my faith

I teach the boys in my community from ages 14-15. Each week I participate in teaching these young men valuable life lessons and how to develop attributes that will make them successful. I believe that by teaching them to follow Jesus Christ they will be better husbands and fathers and they will contribute to society in a very positive way.
