Hi I'm sydney

I am a college student currently majoring in English with a technical writing emphasis. I love the outdoors, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student currently majoring in English with a technical writing emphasis, which I plan to go on and apply to a career in Law. treats are my most favorite thing, particularly chocolate cake. I grew up in St. George Utah. I love soccer and running, and anything else that involves being active, and spending time outside. My most favorite hobbies include hiking, camping, biking, rock climbing, snowboarding etc.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the feeling that I get when I am living according to the standards of the church; by actively attending church activities, obeying the commandments, reading, studying, and applying the Book of Mormon, and the scriptures to my life, etc, is one of being utterly and completely whole, in a way that I have never experienced in any other vicinity. The church has provided me with the healing power of the atonement, which I have felt in my life when I have made mistakes, and has inspired me to be a better person, to dedicate myself to activities that improve myself, and to serve others. I know that I am my happiest self when I am dedicated to this gospel, and I am extremely grateful for the blessings the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints brings to my life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through regular church attendance, and active participation in my young single adults ward activities, service projects, etc. I recently received a mission call to Independence Missouri, where I will be serving as a full time representative for the church for a period of 18 months. I will be spending my time doing service, spreading the beautiful message of the gospel to the people of Missouri, and trying to be an example of Christ in all that I do everyday.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

I will be serving as a full-time missionary, where I will participate in proselyting about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am doing this because I know without a doubt, that the incredible happiness I have felt through the church is the most complete happiness there is, and this is a joy that I wish all people to have the opportunity of being able to experience. By proselyting, missionaries can introduce the gospel to people that may not have had the experience of hearing it otherwise. Show more Show less
