Hi I'm Sky

I am from Oregon. I am a registered independent. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to volunteer. Whether its for my church, the boys and girls club, ect. I enjoy the ocean, nature, friends, and the Gospel. I know that whoever puts their trust in God will be delivered at all times and in all things. I served a mission for 2 years in the New York Rochester Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

Long story short i grew up in a LDS home. I had great parents. Have always supported me and believed in me. As a youth though i got into a fair amount of trouble. I was asked to leave 4 separate schools growing up. Although i went through some hard things i have always known since i was a little kid that i have a Heavenly Father and a Savior Jesus Christ who love me. Ive never doubted this. During one point in my life i was struggling with life and feeling depressed and alone. My best friend at the time invited me to come to sing in a state wide church choir. At first i put him off. But he was persistent and eventually i joined. This was about the same time that i started reading the Bible and the Book of Mormon looking for peace in my life. I went to every choir meeting. When it came time to go to the actual event we had been practicing for i almost didnt go. But i did. As we started to sing, i felt a waterfall of power, love, grace, and mercy cover me from head to toe. Tears streamed down my face. I remember feeling this and being overwhelmed. So overwhelmed that whether in my head or aloud i can not remember i said "What is THIS?" To which a sure and powerful voice spoke to me saying clear as day "This is Gods love for you." I will never forget that moment in my life. I have since striven to live so that i can have more experiences like this. Since this time i would to say that my relationship with my Heavenly Father and Savior Jesus Christ transcend any earthly relationship i have. The Book of Mormon has forever changed my life. It is a doorway to look into Heaven and to hear from the Master. It will give any man or woman peace and purpose in this life and in the next.

How I live my faith

I am a teacher in my ward. I teach the gospel to my fellow church members. I volunteer at the Boys and Girls club. I go to church regularly. I attend the Temple regularly. I volunteer at the Missionary Training Center.

In whom should we have faith?

Sky
The only people we should have faith in is our Deliverer, even the Son of God, Jesus Christ and our Eternal Father in Heaven. To have faith in anything else is to be foolish and unwise. To trust in a perfect God and His Son will lead to a life of prosperity, peace, love, and joy. Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe concerning the doctrine of grace?

Sky
You can only be saved by grace. There is no work.. nothing can bring us back to be reunited with our Savior and Heavenly Father other than the mercy and grace of God's Son Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
