Hi I'm Sydney

I play softball. I run. I love to tease. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I have divorced parents. It happened when I was a junior in high school and it was not pretty. It was the most difficult thing I have ever been through. I am also a dedicated student. I just finished my first year at BYU. All through high school I loved sports. I played softball, basketball, and ran cross country. I also love to shop at DI. It is my favorite sister bonding activity to dig through old things at DI and find the deals. More than half of my wardrobe is from DI. I also love to sew. I took a sewing class at BYU and hope to take more. I also love science. I am studying exercise science at BYU with hopes to continue on to Physical Therapy school. I absolutely love studying chemistry and Biology. Art History is also a guilty pleasure of mine. I always hated history until I learned about how history influenced art! I love learning. I also like anything outdoors, unless it deals with fish. I love to hike, rock climb, go backpacking, camping, jet skiing, boating, and everything you can imagine I want to try! I am also called to serve. I love the gospel. It is my favorite thing to be a part of! I am leaving on my mission soon to the Korea Seoul South mission speaking Korean. I am ecstatic even though it was completely unexpected. I thought I would be speaking Spanish for sure. When I am older, I want to get married and raise a family. My life goal is to coach my little girl's softball teams.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I know it is true. I have read the Book of Mormon and know that it could not have been made up. The church has given me peace and hope through the hardest times. It gives me the confidence to keep living life to the fullest and always looking up. It has also been the place I find friends. It has been a place where I learn new things and also have the chance to serve others! I know that we have prophets here on earth that give modern day revelation! And seriously, this church has it figured out. The Lord guided us to not smoke and drink and to eat and do things in moderation before it ever was proven scientifically. I also know that we can have families forever through this church. I know that we have a little bit of heaven on earth in the beautiful temples we have all over the world.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to church every Sunday. I try and attend all the activities that the church has so that I can grow closer with people of my faith and learn from others. I also plan activities for Young Single Adult groups. Once, we planned a huge outdoor party that had food, service, sports, and dancing. When the event came, it ended up being a rainy, stormy day, but we partied anyways! That dance in the rain was one of the funnest I have been a part of.
