Hi I'm Sabrina

I'm a wife, a mom of 2 kids, a business consultant, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been married for 22 years and have 2 children. I graduated with a BS in Business Administration and after working for 15 years with various companies, I started my own consulting business 5 years ago. I love going to football games with my girls in the fall, skiing in the winter, playing outdoors in the spring, and enjoying the beach in the summer. My passion is my family. Sunny days, good music, pistachio ice-cream, and awesome sunsets put a smile on my face.

Why I am a Mormon

I became a Mormon when I was 20 years young. I grew up Catholic and went to Catholic school from 1 - 12 grade, but always thought something was missing. I was introduced to the church by my husband. I took lessons from the missionaries for 2 years before I converted. Although it was a hard decision, it was one of the best decisions of my life. What made me finally decide to be a Mormon - reading the scriptures and praying about them. I was reading the Book of Mormon and came across the section which talks about faith as a seed and when it is planted it will grow. My heart started to beat fast and I knew that scripture was talking to me. The Holy Ghost confirmed it is true. I am so grateful for the atonement of Jesus Christ and what it means in my life. Heavenly Father has given us a way to say I messed up, I'm sorry, I want to try again. He knew we would make mistakes and has provided a way for us to repent and try again. That means so much to me. I know Jesus Christ is our Savior. I know we have a living prophet on the earth today. I know Joseph Smith translated the Book of Mormon and restored the true Church in these latter days. I know that Heavenly Father is real. He knows who I am and he answers my prayers. This gives me the strength and courage to try and do better each day.

How I live my faith

I love how The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is not just about going to church on Sundays, but is a way of life. Everything I do and everything I say is tied back to Jesus Christ. Every decision is based on - will this bring me closer to being like Jesus. I learn so much from those around me, especially my children. Everyday brings its own certain challenges. These challenges help me to make decisions, learn, and grow. I volunteered with the girls in our church between the ages of 12 - 18 for many years. I love working with them. They grow and change so much during this time of their lives. It is amazing what good structured activities can do for youth. Now I plan activities for the adult women in our ward. This past year I was involved in a fashion show and various service projects. I am looking forward to the activities in the upcoming year. I also visit 3 women from our ward each month. I love visiting with them and helping them when they need it. I realize that there are people out there with trials and struggles much greater than mine. Some may say that my family has struggles. My husband was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis several years ago. My youngest child lost the majority of her hearing from a virus when she was fourteen. Both circumstances were hard to deal with initially and still are tough. But they have helped us not to take each day for granted. These trials have helped us lean on each other and Heavenly Father. These trials make us who we are. We are grateful for each day that we have together and try to make it the best we can. What more can you ask for!

Mormons believe Jesus Christ is their Savior. Why do we need a Savior?

Sabrina
We need our Savior so we can try again each day to do better. Heavenly Father knew we would make mistakes. He knew we would need a way to repent of our sins. Jesus Christ took upon him all of our sins, trials, illnesses, and struggles. Through Jesus Christ, we are able to say I am sorry but even more importantly, I am forgiven. Those sins will tear you apart if you can not let go of them. Jesus Christ will take them from you. Show more Show less

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

Sabrina
We are giving back to Heavenly Father what he has already blessed us with. Show more Show less
