Hi I'm Sarah
I am a second generation latter-Day Saint and I am so grateful to my parents for searching and finding the true gospel of Jesus Christ and teaching it to me. I have been so blessed to receive my own personal witness of the truthfulness of the restored gospel as well. I served a mission to Warsaw, Poland for 18 months. I have an AMAZING husband and two BEAUTIFUL children! I am a stay-at-home MOMMY and I love every day of it!
Why I am a Mormon
I was raised by parents who had joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints when they were in college. They always taught us the gospel of Jesus Christ and followed the Prophet's counsel. When I was 14 I started to have questions and wanted to have my own personal witness of the truthfulness of this church. My dad told me to pray. So I did. For one month, everyday I prayed. I thought my answer wasn't coming, but then it did. The Spirit testified to my soul and from that moment on I have know that God knows me personally, that He loves me, and that this is the true church of Jesus Christ on the earth today, restored from when Christ was on the earth. My testimony has grown and grown through daily personal scripture study and prayer. I love going to church and I feel so good when I keep the commandments. I am so grateful God has blessed me with a strong testimony of His truth. I want to return to Him someday with my family and I know it is possible.
How has attending Church services helped you?
-So many friendships with all types of quality people -Understanding the gospel better -Allows the spirit to remind me to change and be more Christlike -Gives me the opportunity to serve in many capacities and stretch myself -Partaking of the sacrament bread and water helps me to think of my Savior, repent of my sins, and keep my covenants -I SO look forward to church each week. I never miss!
How I live my faith
I just finished a calling serving the women in the church. It was so wonderful. I was over the monthly activities and had so much fun. I am now serving the young children ages 3-11. I am excited to learn how to teach the gospel effectively and creatively to children. I also get to go into the homes of three different sisters each month and get to know them better and teach them the gospel of Jesus Christ. Every Monday night my family does a lesson on a gospel topic and then an activity to help us grow closer as a family. I love to see my almost 2-year old learn to recognize and say "Jesus" and to fold his arms to pray. My husband and I also read scriptures and pray together everyday to keep our marriage strong. I love the gospel of Jesus Christ and how it blesses all aspects of my life.
