Hi I'm Sarah

I'm a mother of 4 boys and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 30 and have so much to look forward too. I have 4 amazing little boys to help raise and a husband that is all that I wanted in a man and father. I love to spend time with our friends! It's been said that our friends are the family we get to choose in this life. I completely agree! We have wonderful friends, mostly because of the Gospel that unites us.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Church. I was baptized when I was 8. But I was converted when I was 16. I was staying with my sister for a month during the summer. It was in a town that didn't know much about the church and the girls that I started to meet were wondering about what I believed. One girl kept asking me questions that I wasn't sure how to answer, so I asked if she wouldn't mind just meeting with the missionaries. She agreed to come over and listen to the discussions. Boy was that an amazing experience for me. I'm not sure what came of it from her, but I was converted that day. I knew that God Restored the Gospel of Jesus Christ through a simple but obedient boy who became a man of God, even Joesph Smith. I am so thankful for the day that I was able to know for myself that our Heavenly Father loves us and has a plan for us on this earth. I know that through our Faith in Him and our Savior all things are possible. I look forward to the day when my boys can know for themselves that what they were taught by my husband and I really is priceless knowledge and be converted to our Heavenly Father's Gospel as well.

How I live my faith

One step at a time. Each day I get up to 4 handsome boys under the age of 6! They challenge all that I am. I make the effort each day to be kind and not yell at them. Each day I fail to some degree BUT I know I'm not perfect. So I take another step to do better the next day. One thing I've noticed is that when I try to do it alone, without my Saviors help, those are the days that I fail miserably! So I try to live my Faith by not doing it alone. There's no reason too. I have the opportunity each week to teach the newly converted members and those interested in the church. This is a wonderful experience to not only teach others but to have others teach me. It is said the the teacher usually is the one that benefits the most. How thankful I am to do something that without the Gospel I wouldn't have the opportunity to do.

What is done with the tithing that Mormons pay?

Sarah
It's a wonderful thing to pay tithing not only do I receive blessings but others receive blessings. It also goes to build Temples, churches, Bishops storehouses, and so much more! Show more Show less

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

Sarah
How blessed we are as a people that God loves us so much that he gave inspiration to those on another continent. That he had prophets to guide His other sheep. We can only benefit from the Bible, Book of Mormon and other scriptures with not only Knowledge but Wisdom. Show more Show less
