Hi I'm Sophia

I grew up in Idaho, I went to school in Maryland, I am 1/2 German, and I'm proud to be a Mormon!

About Me

I am a convert to the church, I was baptized in August of 2012. I just finished up my first year of college at the University of Maryland. Currently I am serving a full-time mission in Germany! In my free time I love to do crafty things like sew, knit, and paint. I also love to cook (but no measuring or recipes for me). I also love spending time outdoors. Hiking, camping, kayaking, rock climbing, zip-lining, anything adventurous, count me in!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that God has a plan for me and loves me. This knowledge has brought me incredible amounts of peace and joy. Since joining the LDS church I have seen my life change for the better.

How I live my faith

I love to live my faith by serving others. I have volunteered at youth sport camps, youth literacy programs, with the elderly, at soup kitchens, and at a homeless shelter. No matter what struggles I am facing, no matter what mood I am in, serving others always puts a smile on my face. Jesus Christ is the perfect example of serving others, as we emulate him we can't help but be filled with love and joy.
