Hi I'm Syrina

I grew up in Idaho. I love to write anything from poetry to novels, and I am a college student. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a big family. I am the youngest, and since I was little, I loved to read everything I could get my hands on. My favorite genres are fantasy, historical fiction, and mystery. I am going to college right now for a Bachelor's degree in English, so I can get a job working as a editor or a writer. I also love to cook and bake! I make everything from cakes to Japanese desserts, and everything from pizza to meat and potatoes. I like listening to all kinds of music, especially musicals. I love to travel, and I want to travel all over the world, but particularly the United Kingdom. I also want to see Wicked, and other plays on Broadway.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and I continue to be part of this Church because it makes me happy. I know who I am, and why I am here. Have you ever felt like you are completely alone in the world, and that everything you do is eventually pointless? I have felt this way multiple times. Being a Mormon has helped me find peace from those feelings, because I know that what I do has a point in this life. I am important, and I am special. I know that this life is not all there is. I feel content in doing things that Jesus Christ has taught, and trying to emulate his example. I can also find peace from loss. In the past years, I have had both sets of grandparents pass away, as well as 2 siblings. My beliefs have helped me understand that I will see my family again, and that their deaths do not mean that I will never see them again. It has given me comfort to know that one day, I will be able to give my family hugs, and we can talk about what we missed while we have been apart.

How I live my faith

Right now, I teach other women in my church once a month. I also go and visit two-three women in my congregation each month, just to see how they are doing, and help them in any way. I have done many different things over the years, including: directing the congregation in singing, helping plan fun activities for them, and being part of the leadership that helps direct activities for the youth. I also volunteered in the Eastern United States for 18 months, teaching people about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and what we believe.
