Hi I'm Lydia

I'm from Pleasant Grove, Utah. Currently serving in the Iowa Des Moines Mission. A middle child. I love my family. I'm a mormon!

About Me

I am 20 years old, currently serving in Ames, Iowa. Coming on a mission was easily the best decision i've made thus far in my life. I have a great family of 2 incredible parents, 1 brother and 5 sisters. I'm the middle child...and its awesome. I love spending time with my family and friends. I love people who make me laugh and enjoy nature as much as i do. I love soccer, hiking, snowboarding, biking. Soaking up God's creations.

Why I am a Mormon

This is a religion of progression! The heavens are not sealed, the bible was not the last time Christ spoke to his people. It is evident through the Book of Mormon, and it is evident today through living prophets and apostles. My faith is tried in all aspects of my life as a mormon. I get to work towards a higher plane of thinking and acting. Mentally, spiritually, emotionally, and physically (I don't even drink tea and coffee...talk about higher plane) I spend 11 hours a day as a missionary serving and teaching people about Christ.....not too many other churches offer me that opporunity! This is Chris's church.

How I live my faith

"Faith Without works is dead". I try to work! To act upon the things I am taught. Jesus Christ was my perfect example. Even though i am a girl born in the 90's, facing different challenges than we read about in acient scripture.....Jesus Christs life is still the pattern i can follow! He was perfect! and though i am absolutely imperfect....When i WORK towards becoming like him, in every aspect of my life...my life is great! Not always easy...but incredibly worth it!
