Hi I'm Sydney Walton

I'm from Dallas, Texas. I like ice cream, laughing, and sunshine. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Virginia, raised in Kentucky, live in Texas, go to school in Utah, am on study abroad in London, but I call home wherever my sweet family is. I love to read, watch movies, eat (preferably sweets), LAUGH, listen to music, and chat and chat and chat with my friends. People are my passion, and I love love :) My favorite scripture is in the Book of Mormon--Ether 12:27….look it up sometime!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon for one simple reason: the gospel of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the greatest source of joy in my life! My daily interactions with God bring me peace and help make everyday so much better. I am constantly reminded and amazed of how mindful Heavenly Father is of me as an individual. 1 John 4:16-18 reads, “And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him….There is no fear in love, but perfect love casteth out fear; because fear hath torment.” I feel my Savior’s love each and every day through the simple pleasures He gives me. He has never once abandon me and I know for the rest of my life He will be there to pick me up when I am down. The unhappiest times of my life have been the times when I am farthest from God. God is my best, best, best friend and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the greatest blessing in my life!

How I live my faith

I think the most important way to live my faith is to stand as a witness of God at all times and in all things and in all places. Last year I taught Sunday School at Brigham Young University and I am currently teaching the little kids about the gospel here in London. I love serving the Lord and I grow so much from interacting with people at church. Sundays are the happiest days of the week because I get to learn more about my Savior. St John 4:14, But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.” If I can help any person learn about God’s “water” that is so important to my daily life, my mission here is complete!
