Hi I'm Sydney

I'm a full-time missionary in the California Roseville Mission and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I enjoy playing sports, especially volleyball and tennis, reading, watching movies, and spending time with family and friends. For now though, I spend all my time inviting others to come unto Christ in the California Roseville Mission!

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in a Mormon family. I grew up attending church every Sunday, going to church activities during the week, and holding callings in my ward. I considered myself a strong member of the church. The huge test of my faith was when I moved away from my parents to a new city to attend college. I had to decide for myself what was most important in my life. By relying on my own testimony rather than my parents, I was able to truly discover the gospel in my life. I have not always made the best decisions, and I have seen the repercussions of these actions. But, I have also seen the way I have improved myself after making these mistakes. The confidence, happiness, and peace that come from living the gospel of Jesus Christ is indescribable. I have come to realize that I have a Heavenly Father who knows me personally and loves me individually. He loves me (and each one of us) so much that He has provided us with everything we need to be able to return to Him. This is his ultimate joy in life- to receive each one of us back into His arms.

How I live my faith

As a missionary I spend 18 months of my life trying to bring others to the peace and joy the gospel brings. The gospel is the most important thing in my life and I am grateful I get to have this time to share it with others.
