Hi I'm Sydney

i love traveling and adventure, playing with my dog, and leave Feb 17th to serve a mission in Port Vila, Vanuatu. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

i'm a 19 year old who comes from a very close family. i'm the second oldest of four siblings and can honestly say they are my best friends. i'm a college student hoping to pursue a career as a physician assistant, however am taking a year and a half off from school to serve an lds mission. i will be serving in the New Caledonia region of the Vanuatu, Port Vila mission and report Feb 17th. i love being outside and enjoying the world God created for us. i enjoy playing and watching sports of all kind, but especially basketball and tennis. i love traveling and am passionate about humanitarian work. the opportunities i've had with service in Haiti have truly helped to shape me into the person i am. i like singing in the car, watching good movies, and spending time with those who make me happy.

Why I am a Mormon

i'm a Mormon because i know this is the truth. i grew up with parents who showed me how to have faith in Christ from a young age. as i got older and saw the different directions i could take in life, i wanted to know for myself if this was the right path for me. i'm a Mormon because I've prayed to God and received my own witness of the truthfulness of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. i know it to be true and i cannot deny it. i'm a Mormon because this gospel gives my life purpose. i know who I am, i know where i came from, and i know where i'm going. i'm a Mormon because this gospel provides me with the tools to come unto Christ and truly follow him. my life has been blessed because of my faith in Jesus Christ and following his commandments. i find comfort in this gospel knowing that i am a daughter of God with infinite potential, that i have a Father in heaven who loves me, and a Savior who knows me personally and made it possible for me to return home.

How I live my faith

i live my faith by striving to be more like the Savior. i am most happy in life when i am striving to keep God's commandments and live according to his desire. i keep my relationship with Heavenly Father close and my faith strong through prayer, scripture study, and attending church. i pray for comfort and to know God's will for me individually. i'm far from perfect, but desire to see those around me with God's eyes and listen to the promptings of the spirit. my faith has given me the burning desire to serve a mission. i hope to be an instrument in the Lord's hands by inviting others to accept Christ and his restored gospel, because i cannot imagine my life without this knowledge.
