Hi I'm Sarah

I'm a mom, I love the outdoors, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a young mom with two sweet little children,and a hard working husband. I like to have fun. My days are spent trying to keep the house up, and teach these kids and keep them busy with uplifting activities. When I am not trying to get food down these stubborn kids or changing diapers I love spending time with my husband, being outdoors, hiking, knitting or scrap-booking.

Why I am a Mormon

I was first a Mormon because I grew up learning the teachings of Christ from my parents. At first I only believed because it was what my parents, teachers, friends, and siblings believed, but my testimony or knowledge as grown so much since then. I not longer am a Mormon because of others but because I know it to be true for myself. I have read The Book of Mormon many times and felt the spirit of the Lord confirm the truthfulness of it to me. In turn I know that Joseph Smith is a true prophet and that Heavenly Father loves each of us and has returned his church on the earth again. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is His church on the earth. It is so wonderful to have a prophet on the earth today. My life is rich and full of purpose because I know these things and what God would have me be and do.

How I live my faith

I live my faith first and for most in the home. I feel the constant pull of the world telling me success and purpose lie in an influential job in the workplace, but I understand God has a greater purpose for me. I am able to stay home with my children and be the greatest influence in their lives.My husband who understands the sanctity of women and understands what Heavenly Fathers asks of us makes it possible for me to be at home with our children. I feel of great worth because I have the highest calling and best job in the world and it's that of a mom. I live in a community there I rub shoulders with many wonderful mothers of other faiths. I am able to speak of the knowledge of a Savior and his plans for our families. We find strength as mothers as we learn from each other and find support in the knowledge of God's plan for us. At church I get to work with the children. I wonder if they really get anything out of our teaching as they wiggle in their seats, talking about their dogs, and poke their neighbor. But I know it's worth it. This time will be the foundation for the rest of their lives. And every once in a while they will actually answer a question or share their testimony and I know I may actually be making a difference.

What is the Law of Chastity?

The Law of Chastity is that we that we don't have any sexual relations before we are married, and after marriage only with our spouse. The world seems to think it is as an unusual and impossible task. While my husband was in nusring school they were discussing teaching sex protection to kids in school. My husband voiced that we first should teach the ideal, abstinence. They were up in arms saying that was ridiculous becuase people are just going to have sex. This is was satan wants us to believe. He wants us to believe that it's impossible to stay chase so don't even try. Breaking the law of chastity just leaves to heartache. So much hurt and confussion can be solved from keeping the law of chastity. You don't have to worry about pregnancy out of wed lock, diseases, and broken hearts. Abstinence and loyaty are possible. I know many people who do it. I myself live the law of chastity and it's help in many ways in my life. My husband and I have a happy and trusting relationship. It's not easy to live the law of Chastity in this world now, but with the Lord's help we can do anything. We will always be happier when we follow the Lord commandments. Show more Show less
