Hi I'm Sydney

I grew up in Pittsburgh. I am a student at Brigham Young University and an animal lover. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have always wanted to travel the world. I now have the opportunity to serve a mission for the church in Argentina and could not be more grateful. I am taking time off from my schooling at Brigham Young University to begin this next chapter of my life. I love the outdoors, animals, reading, and baking. I love animals and want teach high school English.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior through earnest prayer and faith. I know that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love me and that they know me individually as well as perfectly. They know exactly what I need in my life to make me happy and show me that way. I know that by following them I will be eternally happy and be blessed.

How I live my faith

I live my faith every day by sharing my testimony of Jesus Christ and of his gospel to those around me. I live my faith by following Christ's example daily and striving to become more like him.

What is being a Mormon like?

I get asked the question "what is it like to be Mormon?" more often than people would think. My honest answer is that being Mormon is incredible but it is also challenging at times. I love what I believe and I put my whole heart into it and it makes me so happy to have the knowledge that I do. But sometimes being different from your friends and family is hard, especially when you have to make tough choices. But being Mormon gives me a special blessing: knowing that I can live with my family forever, something I want to share with everyone. Being Mormon makes me incredibly happy above all else because I know that I am trying my best and although I'm not perfect, I know that Jesus Christ makes all the difference through the Atonement. I am independent, happy, and determined and I am a Mormon. Show more Show less
