Hi I'm Sara.

I am from Salt Lake City. I am a student studying design. I love being a missionary in Kentucky and I am a Mormon!

About Me

I grew up in the shadow of the rocky mountains along the Wasatch Front in Salt Lake City. I love the mountains and everything that comes with them. For me, mountains are home. I am currently serving as a missionary in the Great Kentucky Louisville Mission. I am having the time of my life seeing the gospel change lives and change mine every day. I love art and journaling. An empty page is my haven, where I can write any story I want. I am a sister and a daughter. I love spending time with my family. (who doesn't?) I love education. I will go back to the University of Utah where I am studying design and art. I love learning. I love big families! I am so happy. I love being a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I see what it has done in the lives of those that it touches. The truth makes people happy. It makes me a better person. Because of my membership in the church I am kinder, and brighter. Everything that I value in my life is a result of righteous living. When I am alone, or I have to face something hard, I feel God there. I cannot deny the warmth that is in my heart when I pray. I am a Mormon because I know that the Savior is real and He is what matters.

How I live my faith

I am in a wonderful Single's ward where I get to serve and worship the Lord. I was just called to work with the women in our ward. My job is to make sure that all the women are cared for. We want each girl to feel welcome and we pray for them to overcome their trials. I love being apart of a ward family where we all feel love. It's a chance to get to know people that I never would have met or understood. I have come to love those girls as my own sisters, and look at people with a different perspective now.

To what do you attribute the growth of the Church?

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is growing so fast simply because it is true. There is no simpler way to answer that question. People all over the world are reading the Book of Mormon and listening to the missionaries, and they cannot deny the power they feel from it. It is the truth. Jesus Christ stands at the head of a church today. He is calling to His people to come and be baptized by authority and to begin their journey back to Him. It is a miracle, and millions throughout the globe are feeling it every day. That is why this church grows every day, and that is why it will continue to grow. Show more Show less
