Hi I'm Skye

I was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I grew up loving to dance but am currently going to college for undergrad to go onto a Master's program as a Physician's Assistant. I am putting off school for a little to serve a mission. My immediate family is inactive, but support my decision to serve. I love volunteering and am looking forward to being a full-time missionary.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I was baptized by my uncle when I was 8, my parents were inactive. My sister and I would go to church every once in awhile, but when she left for college I, too, stopped going. I was brought back to the church by my best friends I had met in high school. I told them how I didn't like to sit by myself at church and that was why I had stopped going. One friend immediately invited me to go to church with her family every Sunday. It took me months, but I finally accepted the offer and it changed my life. It has helped me become a better person, and to face trials with faith. Because of how much of an impact the gospel had on my life, I have decided to serve a mission.

How I live my faith

I live my faith every single day. Being a mormon requires to live by faith not just on Sundays, but to truly devote your life around Jesus Christ. I live by my faith by studying the scriptures and praying daily. I also attend institute throughout the week, as well as all of my Sunday meetings. I have faith that through studying the scriptures more, I will find help throughout my life and will be able to help all those around me.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

As mormons, we help all of those around us. God loves every single one of his children, not just the ones that are LDS. It is our duty to give service and help in any way we can. Even as missionaries, it is our purpose to assist in any way that can affect their life, even if they don't accept our teachings. Show more Show less
