Hi I'm Sierra

I was born in Utah and grew up in Illinois. I am a freshman in high school. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the 4th out of 9 in my family and I love being in a big family. I love music! I love to sing and play the piano whenever I get the chance to. I also love running and my goal is to run a mini marathon before I graduate from high school. I am a freshmen in high school. My favorite class in high school is algebra. I like making hats for kids in need in China, at hospitals, or any where else they need them. I also enjoy hanging out with friends and family. I love babysitting little kids and love being around kids! I love being a Mormon and hanging out with members!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ also known as a Mormon and I chose to be a member of this church because I believe everything that is in the scriptures and I want to live with my family forever. I share that testimony that being a Mormon is the best thing that could ever happen. I know that the scriptures are true and that you could learn a lot of things in them. For young women 12 through 18, we have Personal Progress and by doing Personal Progress, it has blessed my life. I believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men. I know that I am a Daughter of God and you are a child of God. Being in this church means a lot to me and I grow from all the things I learn like Personal Progress and by reading the scriptures daily. I go to church every week and by that my life has been blessed. I also want to share that saying your prayers day and night will help you spiritually. When I share the gospel with my friends, it is very spiritual and a great opportunity to share the gospel. Also, at church there is a program called seminary and anyone in high school goes and by going to it at 6:00 every morning to hear a lesson has blessed my life. I continue to follow the gospel because I know that it is true and that I know it had blessed my life very much.

How I live my faith

I love doing service to others. I also like helping people in need like making hats or going over to babysit if someone is in the hospital or something. In my ward, I participate in whatever I can. By doing all these things have strengthened my faith and learning how to serve others. In church, the girls are assigned an inactive girl and by helping someone come back to church and coming to Wednesday activities, has made my faith grow. As I also encourage people to come to Wednesday night activities and church, it has impacted me, has helped me to try even harder to go to church and to activities, help my faith grow. By reading the scriptures and pondering them, that it has increased my faith tremendously.

What is being a Mormon like?

Being a Mormon is fun and spiritual. Sometimes we are tempted to do the wrong thing but though the scriptures I know to make the right choice. I know that we are sealed to our families forever and I think that is very special. In the morning, there is a class for high schoolers, called seminary, that helpd us learn and grow of the gospel and no other churches have that, so having that every morning is a neat thing. Mormons attend church every week and Mormons have the Book of Mormon and so when I read that it helps me closer to Heavenly Father. Mormons serves everyone even if they are not part of our church and we try to look out for those people that could use some help or people that might be interested in the gospel. It is fun because every week we have Wednesday night activities so we get to hang out with people of our own standards. I know that if we read the scriptures daily, that we will be strengthened and blessed. Also, by praying every morning and night that we will recieve answers if we are struggling and praying will bless our lives. I LOVE BEING MORMON! Show more Show less
