Hi I'm Sarah

I grew up in Oklahoma. I am a wimp when it comes to insects, camping, and mushrooms. I work as a writer. I am a Mormon.

About Me

"Mommy, he is looking at me!" I've thought about making this my theme song. If I ever started a band this would be undoubtedly be a big hit. As a wife and mommy to 5 kiddos ranging in age from 13-5, I am an expert on solving the unsolvable. When I'm not breaking up arguments or finding lost library books, I love to write, work on family history, read the latest YA fiction, try new gluten-free recipes, craft, and practice my ever-fading French language skills.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I searched my entire life for answers to several simple questions. Why am I here? Where did I come from? Where am I going? I found the answers to these questions as I studied with the missionaries and prayed to know the truth. I had always known my Savior, Jesus Christ, and my Father in Heaven, but as I studied, read, and prayed I saw them even more clearly in the teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I saw that I did have a purpose and place in this life. I learned why we have trials and how to overcome them. I learned and gained a sure witness that Jesus is my Redeemer and Savior. I learned how much my Father loves me and gained knowledge about His plan for my happiness here on this earth and my eventual return to Him. I'm a Mormon because I went out searching for truth and I found it.

How I live my faith

In my ward I teach adult women in Relief Society one Sunday a month. I love teaching the Sisters. I always end up learning so much more from them than they could ever learn from me. I was recently asked to teach an early morning Seminary class to the high school aged youth in our ward. Already this has been such a blessing to me, as I've strengthened my own personal scripture study as I prepare to teach these choice young people about our Heavenly Father's plan.

What do Mormons believe happens to us after we die? What do Mormons believe about life after death?

It's not the end for us...death. It's just a necessary progression in this eternal life that we are in the process of living. At some point after our deaths, our spirits and bodies will be united, never to be separated again. There are those I love who have died, I know without a doubt that I will see them again. I look forward to a joyous reunion. Show more Show less
