Hi I'm Sophie!

I'm a Mormon and I love my religion. It makes me a happier person and brings peace and comfort to my life.

About Me

I love reading, especially science fiction and fantasy. I like writing too, especially the stories I make up in my head. The only problem is that I don't have the commitment and patience to write a whole story from start to finish. I also love drawing and painting, and I'm pretty good at it if I do say so myself. In school my best subject is probably math. Both algebra I and geometry were pretty easy for me. My favorite subject, on the other hand, is probably history or English. I am interested in the way the human brain functions, astronomy, and archaeology. There are so many careers I am interested in that I don't know which one I should choose yet. Maybe a psychologist, or a neurologist, or even a neuropsychologist. Perhaps an archaeologist, physical cosmologist, or an astronomer of some sort. I am also interested in graphic designing, animating, illustrating, writing, politics (though NOT being a politician), and teaching (anything). My best sport, and the only one I do competitively, is swimming. I don't enjoy it as much as I used to, and I'm not very fast, but I think I have good technique. I also play the piano and the french horn.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into an active LDS family. When I was little I thought everyone was a Mormon and going to church every Sunday was just a part of life. I thought that everyone loved and believed in Jesus and Heavenly Father. I accepted everything about the gospel automatically. Then in fourth grade I started having depression problems. I was constantly crying and felt like no one loved or cared about me. I prayed for Heavenly Father to help me. In sixth grade I had terrible hallucinations. Finally after many doctor appointments I found out I had narcolepsy. I was then given the medicine to help control it. I became happier and my testimony grew immensely. I knew that Heavenly Father loved and cared for me. Even though I hate even thinking about that experience, I am grateful for it, because it made me a stronger person and strengthened my testimony.

How I live my faith

I go to church every Sunday. Sometimes I am tired and I really don't feel like going, but when I finally get there I am glad I did. Even though I was born into an active church family and have been learning about the gospel my whole life, I still learn new things almost every week. Another thing I do is pray daily. I pray to my Heavenly Father every night. I try to pray in the morning too, but I forget more often than not. That is one big thing I am trying to improve on. I also read the scriptures with my family at least a few days a week and we try to have family prayers every day.
