Hi I'm Lysi

I grew up in Utah. I'm serving as a full-time missionary in San Diego, California. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I graduated high school in 2013. I had lots of fun! I was a cheerleader and in the touring choir! So as you probably already know, i love to dance, do gymnastics, sing, and everything in between! If anyone ever rides in the car with me I can promise that I'll be singing along with the music. I absolutely LOVE to read and I hope to have my own library in my future home someday! I just finished my freshman year in college and I am now on a mission. I am serving in the California, San Diego spanish speaking mission. Its the best thing I've ever done :)

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church, but that does not set aside the fact that I still needed to learn for myself if the gospel was true. Close to 5 years ago I began to wonder and started to pray to have a sign show me that this was the right church. I was expecting something large and grand, but that is not what I got. A few days later my friend texted me out of the blue, telling me to read a certain talk out of the ensign. I read it and it said exactly what I needed to hear. It told me that something grand would not appear before my eyes, that I shouldn't expect that either. I should feel something inside me, from the Holy Ghost that lets me know it is true. I had never mentioned to anyone that I was praying for a sign, and even though it wasn't extraordinary, it was exactly what I needed. Since this time, I've learned to rely on the Lord. To truly let him guide me in my life. I notice whenever I begin to get lazy about my scriptures or forget to pray and trust in Him I lose a happiness that can only be filled with the light of Christ. This gospel is my shining light in the dark, and I will follow it with all that I am. There is nothing else that brings me such happiness and peace as the gospel brings. I love it. I know it is true. I will work every day of my life to be like Christ. I know He lives.

How I live my faith

I've been active my whole life. I grew up in a very active home, and my parents always encouraged us to go to church and find our own testimony and help it grow. I've always been the kind of person to figure things out on my own. To search things out and really research topics. Well, you could say that i searched out the gospel quite a bit because I am currently serving as a full time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I chose to serve a mission because I noticed that when I truly live the gospel I am filled with so much happiness and I continuely feel the love that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ have for me. So here I am, a Mormon and a missionary.
