Hi I'm Colby Sly

I'm from Las Vegas, but currently in Canada serving a mission for my church. I love my family, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I'm not too out of the ordinary. I have a big family! My mom, dad, three brothers and three sisters. I love to do things with them, camping, going to the beach, hiking, anything to spend time with them really. I also love to do things with my friends, swimming, long boarding, and fun things like that! But for the time being I put that to the side to be a missionary. I am serving in the Canada Edmonton mission, and loving life!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon, because it just makes sense! I grew up in the church, but for everyone there comes a time in your life when you can't just believe what people tell you. You have to search it out and find answers. So to do that, I took my question to the source of all truth and asked God what I should do with my life. I got an answer, and here I am. I have seen the blessings that living the Gospel of Jesus Christ bring. My family is happy, and we will be together forever thanks to the knowledge we have. That is what drove me to be a missionary, is the knowledge of God's blessings. The blessings that come as we follow his plan. It's all true, it has to be! It just makes sense :)

How I live my faith

At home growing up I tried to be a good influence on the people I spent time around. By living the standards I accepted, I was able to be an example to people at school and everywhere I go! In the church as a youth I held a few leadership callings that allowed me to help my peers learn and grow as we all strengthened each other. I also served in primary teaching the little kids in our church for a short time before I left for Canada to serve the people here. In everything I do, I may not be perfect, but I try my best and I rely on my savior to help me with the rest.
