Hi I'm Sariah
I live in Utah. Much of my family is not active in the Church, but I am proud to say that I AM A MORMON!
I am part of a “typical” Mormon family. I had a sibling on a mission and another in diapers. I am presently in college, but I am taking a break to save money for more school. I have a passion for helping others and I try to help at least one person a day with something that will make their day just a bit brighter. I attend a young single adult ward, but I also attend my family ward and help teach the youth and the children. I will go out of my way to do something for a friend or a family member.
Why I am a Mormon
I was raised in the Church and I was baptized when I was eight years old on the 6th of June. I remember that day vividly. It was one of the best days of my life! I continue to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because of the amazing experiences I have in my life. My closest friends are people that I have met at church and I trust them with my life. The feelings of peace, joy, comfort, and love I receive EVERY day from living my values is far more important to me than “fitting in” or following the latest trend. I love the Lord, my Savior and Redeemer. Without Him, I would not be the person I am today. I will follow Him and be faithful to Him no matter what I have to go through. I know that if I am faithful and follow the Savior that I will, one day, live with Him and my Father in Heaven again. I have heard some people say, “It’s my way or the highway.” Well, for me it’s the Lord’s way. No highway option. Why? Because when you follow the Lord’s way, there is no need for a “highway”. There is a path, straight to Heaven. I think that is a much better destination!
How I live my faith
I live my faith daily. I wake up earlier than I need to, to read from my favorite book The Book of Mormon. In its covers, it holds truth that can be shared with everyone, even little children. It is simple and easy to understand. I receive answers to my prayers while reading The Book of Mormon. The Church IS my life without the Church, there is nothing left of me. My Redeemer is my best friend. I cannot go a second of the day without Him. He is my Guide, a “lighthouse on a hill”, helping me daily find my way back home.
