Hi I'm Skyler

I grew up in Utah. I am happy. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am involved with the Special Olympics, a program that helps people who have special needs succeed and participate in many athletic events that otherwise they oftentimes never have the oppurtunity to have. These fellow peers' determination and love for life is truly inspiring. After helping the faculty with one of these events, my friends and I started the Superhero Club. Its whole point is to have fun this these students through activities and games throughout the school year. Our entire school body came to love these special peers and voted one special needs girl as our Prom Queen. I also enjoy the Boy Scouts of America and the Order of the Arrow. Through my experiences in these programs I found 3d Graphics and animation, something I have come to enjoy learning about. I also started blacksmithing and hiking, two things I really enjoy. My family also has a small farm on which we grow potatos and pumpkins, which taught me more than how to fix old farm equipment. It forced me to work many hours beside my family, which taught me how to deal with them and now love them.

Why I am a Mormon

I found happiness. One time after listening to somebody promise me that God loves me and wants me to be happy, I tried it. I promised myself I would be obidient and try it out for a week, and it worked. Nothing has changed on the outside, in fact it has gotten rougher, but instead of being angry or distressed, there is peace. I can communicate with my Father in Heaven, who loves me enough to let me learn through my choices. I have the words of the prophets and have learned that this world is for me. His gospel has given me the way to be happy. I am happy. I am a Mormon

How I live my faith

At least every month I get to go help sombody with my group, usually at least once a week. That is a group of fourteen young men all going and helping somebody. It's pretty amazing to be a part of, but it doesn't happen by itself. The planning and thought that goes into every activity is nearly as amazing as the serivice itself. Every time we get wood for somebody and the come out and help, even if it is just by being there, we are amazed by the happiness that it brings to them. One time we were building some game boundry markers and by the time we finished we had more people helping than we had tools or things for them to do, and we didn't call anybody. They had just seen us working as they passed and came to, as one sister said, "repay us for the porch." I love being part of this army of youth that can change hundreds of people just through an hour a week.
