Hi I'm Sefra

I am a teenager with regular interests, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I swim competitively, I rock climb, and I play volleyball. I love doing these things because they help me to stay healthy, and they are really fun. I also do other sports such as basketball and soccer (but I'm not making any claims that I'm any good at either).😉 Some of my best friends come from doing sports. I love hanging out with my friends and being outside. I love the outdoors, whether I am paddling around on a lake, wakeboarding, riding my bike, or just sitting in a tree. I also really like learning and reading. I enjoy theatre and singing a lot too. I sing all the time (mostly Disney/Theatre tunes) I like listening to music just as much as singing even though they often happen together. One of my biggest dreams in life is to write and publish a novel, so I write stories all the time. Overall, I am very busy, but very happy.😊

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a part member family. My mom is a member and my Dad is not. Despite this I have been a very strong member of the church my whole life. I love this gospel so much, and know with my whole heart that it is true. Everything about it brings joy to my life, and I wouldn't give up the truths that I know for anything. I love God and I know that Christ is our Savior and he is my best friend.

How I live my faith

I love being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I have the opportunity to be the president of the girls my age, and I pretty much make sure that they are doing food, and I offer them rides to youth activities. I was able to be a part of the planning committee for my Stake's Pioneer Trek. We walked 50miles in four days in authentic looking pioneer clothing pulling handcarts. I love everything that the church teaches, but I am so glad that I have had a love for serving others instilled in me. I love to volunteer. My favorite place to volunteer is at Old Folks Homes. The people there are so fun and so interesting, and they love having company. I love participating in all of the church's activities, and I know that they are all going to be clean, like the church dances, which are super fun. I also try to live my faith by not judging people, and being nice to everybody I meet. I am not shy about the gospel, and I am very proud that I can talk about it whenever. That is how I live my faith.
