Hi I'm Cydel

I'm a dancer, singer, and fitness instructor. I'm a sister and daughter, and a missionary in Indiana. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a daughter of a family of 7, and I love my family so much! I'm going to Brigham Young University and majoring in Human Development and minoring in Business! I love to eat oreos, rock climb, and make people laugh! I love dancing my heart out, singing with soul, and playing the ukulele. I am a Zumba Fitness Instructor, and I dance for the BYU Ballroom Team! It is so much fun and I absolutely love it! Being able to work hard towards reaching my dreams is something that I live for, and I've learned how to be brave and take heart because of it. Music has a powerful influence on me and I believe it to be one of the most powerful languages because it is one that we can all understand and truly feel. Music is something I know I can rely on to bring the Holy Spirit into my life and bring me closer to Christ as I perform, listen, and write the songs of my heart.

Why I am a Mormon

I've been a member my whole life, and honestly, I cannot imagine how my life would be today without the gospel of Jesus Christ. With working 4 jobs, attending school, community service, spending time with family and friends, life can easily be consuming and overwhelming. But through the gospel and my Savior, I have found purpose and meaning. My burdens feel lifted, I am happier, and I have found that through living the gospel teachings I am able to be healed from any and all past wounds because of my Savior. I feel light. I don't have one conversion story, but rather, I have many. My conversion happens during the times life feels hardest: where my depression and anxiety come back, friends or family pass away, I experience another broken heart, and accidents and/or injuries seem never-ending. My conversion happens also during the times life feels light, and is filled with hope: where I'm able to feel the Holy Ghost and the love God has for me, friends and family are healed emotionally and physically, and I'm able to healed as well from any injuries both external and internal. I have felt the healing power of the Atonement through my Savior, Jesus Christ, and I cannot deny it. This is why I am a Mormon. The gospel brings me true and everlasting joy, a joy that I can rely on and one that is unshakable. As I read the Book of Mormon and study the gospel, I feel closer to Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ. I'm a Mormon. I know it. I live it. I love it.

How I live my faith

Living my faith is something that I take seriously and do with my all. I know that our Savior, Jesus Christ, died for us and that through the Atonement we can live with Him and our Father in Heaven again. I love Him, and I would do anything for Him. One of the ways that I show my love for Him and my faith is by serving in the ward through my callings which have entailed the following: planning and organizing youth activities, including service projects and self-improvement events, performing secretarial duties, and providing counseling services to attending youth. Living my faith takes sacrifice, which is why about 3 months ago I recently decided to sacrifice 18 months of my life and serve as a full-time missionary away from home. I'm so excited to teach individuals and families about the gospel of Jesus Christ, and help others find their purpose and the true and everlasting happiness that comes from living and knowing it! The gospel brings me hope, and I'm so happy for the opportunity I have to share that hope with others so that they can feel peace and the love God has for them.
