Hi I'm Skyler

I am a health and fitness fanatic. I am a cancer survivor. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband and a college student. I love to be physically active and utilize the great gift Heavenly Father has offered us that is our body. I love to learn and develop the talents that I have been given. I have been raised in the Mormon faith since birth and that faith has been strengthened countless times though experiences though out my life. I was diagnosed with cancer a year after seeing my brother go through cancer treatment. I don't know how I would have handled that trial if it weren't for the strength, support and love I felt from my Heavenly Father and loving friends and family. Since then I have tried to live my life to the fullest, knowing that Heavenly Father can call us to return to Him at any moment without warning.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (aka "Mormon" church). Even though I have been part of this church my entire life, there have been many occasions where my faith was tested. Everyone, member or not, is encouraged to find out for themselves whether or not The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the one true church that Christ established. I have prayed with this specific question in my heart and it has been affirmed to me over and over again through the power of the Holy Ghost that this is the one true church and the only source of true, everlasting happiness. That is why I have chosen to be a member of this church.

How I live my faith

I always try to be aware of those around me who may be in need of service. I love learning of Jesus Christ and try my best to emulate the kind of person he was in my dealings with my fellow men. In the world we live in today we are taught be self-absorbed, it can be difficult to have a spirit of service. It is because of the great satisfaction that is felt with an act of selfless service that motivates me to continually service. I go to church every Sunday, go to the temple, attend social activities where church members can invite friends and get together, study the Bible and the Book of Mormon as well as other teachings of the gospel of Christ, and pray. These are the things that give me strength to continue on when life's storms rage.
