Hi I'm Savy

I'm from Laguna Beach California, I surf, I am currently a full-time missionary, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving a full time mission for the church in Idaho Pocatello. I am a Sophomore at Brigham Young University and I want to be an Art Therapist and work with kids in hospitals and orphanages. I absolutely love helping people in any way I can and I hope to do that with this career. I spend most of my time at home surfing or swimming in the ocean with my brother and friends. It's my favorite place to be and I am so blessed to live in such an amazing place with such amazing people. I love music (country and pop) and movies (especially comedies and romance)! I love filming and making my own movies of life with my friends up at school in Utah, and my family at home. I love photography and I want to see as much of the world and all of its different cultures as possible. I am a big instagramer and I love capturing moments and experiencing everything I can in life!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because I know it's true. I have gained my own testimony of this gospel slowly over the years through trials and amazing spiritual experiences. And I have found there is nothing else that brings me more joy and comfort than being a member of this church. Being a member of this church has made me the person I am today and I don't know where I would be without it. This gospel gives me knowledge and comfort through the Book of Mormon, about where I came from, why I'm here, and where I'm going. My life has so much more meaning and purpose because I know these things and I am so thankful for that. I am so thankful for a loving Heavenly Father who sent His son Jesus Christ to atone for all of our sins. I am beyond grateful for his Atonement and the chance I have to repent and return to live with God and Jesus Christ in Heaven again. I know that Christ is my Savior and he knows and understands everything I feel and go through. He is my older brother and best friend. My family means the world to me and this gospel has taught me about how families can be together forever. Our Heavenly Father loves ALL of His children and wants all of us to return to live with Him one day. I know this is Christ's true church here on earth, and I love it with all of my heart and soul.

How I live my faith

My family and I have moved a lot to places where there the church was very small. Growing up, I've always tried to be a good example and representative of what I believe because most of my friends have no idea what our church is or what we believe and know to be true. I hold my standards high and my beliefs higher. In everything that I do, I try to emulate the Savior.
