Hi I'm Sidni

I am a California girl. I am a Utah Ute. I am a daughter of God. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest child of three. I grew up in Southern California. I loved it. I love super heroes, books, Harry Potter, Avatar: the Last Airbender, and pretty much any other nerdy thing you can think of. In high school I played water polo, and I miss it everyday. I spent my freshman year of college at University of Utah, majoring in Computer Science. I am currently serving a full-time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Richmond, Virginia.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of this church because this Gospel makes me happy. It makes sense. It is the only thing that is stalwart and unchanging in an ever changing world. Because of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, I can live with my family forever. That is priceless. When loved ones die, I know that I will be able to see them again. This is not the end. We don't just "disappear" once we die. That knowledge gives me an "eternal perspective." God lives. Jesus Christ lived and died for us, and then was resurrected three days later. Joseph Smith really did see God and His son Jesus Christ, and really did restore the only true church on the Earth today. The Atonement is real. It heals all of my short comings, sins, and sorrows. There is nothing better than the knowledge that God loves me, and He is there for me every second of everyday. I love my Savior and I know that through Him I will live eternally with my family in His presence.

How I live my faith

I try to be the kind of person that exemplifies Christ. I am trying everyday to be like Jesus. I am nowhere near perfect, but the Atonement makes up for my short comings. Through Christ and this Gospel I am made whole.
