Hi I'm Silja Levänen

I'm a nomadic traveler who loves music. I'm currently serving a mission in Hungary. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I'm a tri-citizen with a diverse background, American/Finnish/Aussie. I've grown up moving around the world with my dad's job, so travelling is engrained in me. I absolutely love it. Music is a passion of mine and I really enjoy going to concerts. I appreciate art and love building things with my hands, such as wood work and ceramics. I love language and majored in Linguistics in college. I always love meeting new people and experiencing new cultures. The world is such a large and diverse place, I want to experience it all! I'm currently serving a mission in Hungary and I love every second of it.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have found it is the only way to find true and lasting happiness. I've had what I thought was 'happiness' before, but it was fleeting and never as edifying and fulfilling as when I've followed the example of my Saviour. I know that Jesus Christ is the key to eternal happiness, and only through accepting Him and following His commandments can I return to live with my Heavenly Father again, and live eternally with my family whom I love. Put simply, the gospel of Jesus Christ brings eternal happiness. I know it. I live it. I love it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith daily as a representative of my Saviour Jesus Christ. I am currently a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. As such, I teach people about how much God loves them and how following Jesus Christ can bring such happiness and joy to their lives. I love what I do, and I love my Saviour.
