Hi I'm Sarah

I'm a wife, mother, business owner and a Mormon

About Me

I am a mother to wonderful baby girl, a wife to a sensational husband. A student of international business, an insurance agent...too busy to think straight! I am a bit of a shop-a-holic for shoes, baby cloths, and fabulous dresses. I love a good party and I am up for one any day any time! Most of all I adore my family, immediate and extended, I enjoy spending time with grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews. I often think of my family as a sweater finely knit together with love for each other and a love of the lord.

Why I am a Mormon

I have had the wonderful opportunity to be raised as a member of the church. I had loving parents who had regular scripture study with me and taught me to rely on the Lord for strength. As I grew these lessons of my youth and been able to help me weather the storms of my life. I know that God lives, I know he loves me and I know that Jesus is the Christ and my redeemer. My testimony of the Lords plan was solidified when I gave birth to my daughter. The Lord has entrusted her spirit to me to teach her. What love and faith he has in each parent.

How I live my faith

I have had so many opportunities to serve my community because of the church. A few years back I had the opportunity to teach ESL classes to church members and non members a like. This experience gave me a unique opportunity to love others and help them to find jobs, learn a new language and to communicate with their children’s teachers. I have also had the opportunity to be a member of the new members program this helps new members to continue their learning in the gospel. Each opportunity I have serve brings me closer to my Father in Heaven and give me a deeper love for those I serve.

Why are Mormons asked to donate 10% of their income to their Church?

This is known as tithing and Mormons are not the only church that are asked to donate 10% of their income. This money goes to many of the humanitarian efforts along with a worldwide infastructure. The Lord has promised in the Bible that those who pay their tithing will be blessed and never want. In my personal story below I relay that paying tithing let me to find some much needed answers with regards to my health. I have seen that tithing works miracles. Show more Show less

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

Mormon women are just like every other woman. As a woman and a Mormon I have had the opportunity to graduate from college, pursue a master’s degree, be a mother, a business owner, a community activist, a wife, a world traveler and so much more. My faith in Jesus Christ along with the support of a wonderful spouse and family I have been able to accomplish so much. I believe that both men and women have roles in the family and on those things I am weak my husband is strong, and lean to his understanding and vise versa. Marriage is a holy partnership with the Lord and not a dictatorship. In those families with only a mother she has a unique responsibility and challenge but has the opportunity have Home and Visiting teachers who can lend help her with those things that she needs and desires for herself and family.
