Hi I'm Sarah

About Me

I'm a college student studying Broadcast Journalism. I love meeting new people and telling people's stories. I believe everyone has a unique story to tell. I grew up in Texas on a farm and love animals and the outdoors. I'm from a small town, and loved growing up in a close-knit community. I have 2 brothers and a sister. Our family is big and loud and loves to have fun! At school, I live with my 4 best friends. We enjoy 10 minute dance parties and making food for other people.

Why I am a Mormon

My mom was raised LDS. My dad is a convert. I was born and raised as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Even though I've always considered myself a Mormon, there was definitely a point in my life when I had to decide if I believed like my parents did. When I was a teenager, I decided to find out for myself. I read the Book of Mormon, and I prayed to my Heavenly Father to know if this church that I had spent my whole life in was true. I testify that it is. Through His Holy Spirit, my Father in Heaven told me so, and I know He will give an answer to each and every one of His children. I'm a Mormon because being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints brings me the greatest joy I have ever known. Through this gospel, I know that I am daughter of God, that He loves me and knows who I am. I know that He has made a way for my family to be together forever, that when this earth life is over we can still be a family and learn to be like God, that one day we can inherit all He has to offer. The greatest thing - He wants us to succeed and become like Him! I'm a Mormon because I know where I come from, why I'm here on earth, and where I'm going after this life, and what my Heavenly Father wants me to be!

How I live my faith

I've played the piano since I was 5 years old. I enjoy playing the piano in church and leading the choir. I've also been able to teach classes for children in the church. I've been a teacher for adults too. At college, I get to lead weekly family nights for college students. We get together like a real family and play games, teach lessons, and eat food. It's a great way to get to know each other better and have a family experience even though you're far from home. Over the years, I've helped organize many church service projects in the community. It's great to be the Lord's helping hands!
