Hi I'm Sydney Shinkle

I grew up in Arizona. I am now serving a full time mission in Yakima Washington! I am a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Arizona and I am the middle of 7 kids. I have 4 sisters and 2 brothers and I have always enjoyed having a big family and especially love spending time with them. I have always been a fan of kids and have spent a lot of time babysitting in my life. I enjoy photography although I've never been really good at developing that hobby. I also enjoy doing random doodles/drawings on occasion.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because there is such a great sense of peace and happiness that you feel when you belong to His church and follow His teachings. I know that this church is true and that there is a living prophet who receives revelation for us. I know that Christ is the head of this church. I know that Jesus Christ is our Savior and Redeemer and that He died for us so that we can live with Him and God again. I am so grateful for this church and everything that it does for me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to keep the commandments every day. I am also a missionary and dedicate my everyday life to serving others and teaching them about Christ and His true and everlasting gospel.
