Hi I'm Skye

I'm serving a mission in Kobe Japan. I grew up in Utah. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I like to sew, make cookies and talk with my friends. I am majoring in Law and Constitutional Studies. I love driving through the mountains and spending time with my beagle. I was a student government officer in high school, I am not known for being athletic and I am shorter than the average 15 year-old.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because going to church, attending the temple and reading the Book of Mormon is the only true peace I have ever felt. My mind is always running a million miles an hour, thinking of every little thing I have to do. However, when I turn my heart and my mind to my Heavenly Father, even just a tiny bit, I feel calm. I feel cared for. I feel His Spirit. The church was never a priority to me. I went to church here and there, got baptized at age 8, went to a few activities, but I didn't pay much attention to what the Spirit was trying to tell me. In high school, I felt completely alone and without a purpose. Thankfully, I had friends who were consistently there for me and helped me make the best decision of my entire life. I chose Jesus Christ. I made His Gospel the number one priority in my life, and I have never felt calmer, happier or more loved in my entire life. I found my purpose: I am my Heavenly Father's beautiful daughter of God and I was sent to Earth to BECOME like Him. Trust me, I know how easy it is to skip church, to not read the scriptures, to not follow His commandments. It's hard to be a member of His church, but it will ALWAYS be worth it. Life will be hard at times, but He is always there to help us through it. "The strengths we develop in overcoming challenges will be with us in the eternities to come." - Dallin H. Oaks.

How I live my faith

When I was younger, I had multiple callings in our Young Women's Presidency. I helped plan and carry out activities for the rest of the young women. In college, I was the Ward Indexer. I'd get on FamilySearch.org, picked a group of old documents that have been scanned into the system and type the information written on the documents the best that I could. This way, when people are looking for their ancestors, the name I typed in will pop up in our system and they can research all about them!
