Hi I'm Sarah

I've lived all over the U.S. but still ended up in Utah. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently attempting to be a mom to 3 wonderful boys, and a wife to a wonderful man. I spend my time trying to grow a garden, bake homemade wheat bread, and read entertaining books. All of this takes precedence over housework which eventually gets done anyways. My husband and I enjoy doing projects together around the house. We enjoy going camping in the summer, visiting family, and taking fun trips with our kids.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into an LDS family and was taught the gospel in both my home and at church. I depended on the faith of my parents and of my teachers as a child. As an adult I now have my own faith and testimony of the truth. I am Mormon because I know the Book of Mormon to be real and true. I know that Joseph Smith saw Heavenly Father and our Savior in a grove of trees as he knelt in humble prayer. I have been to that grove and the Holy Ghost has testified to me of the truthfulness of that vision. I am Mormon because I know.

How I live my faith

I go to church on Sunday's for 3 hours. I used to teach children ages 4 and 5 during 2 of those hours but recently I've been asked to help out with the cub scout dens in our area. In the USA the LDS Church routinely sponsors scout dens and troops and provides the personnel to manage them. So far it has been rewarding to help these young boys learn important life skills and values. As a woman in the church I try to help my neighbors when they are in need by offering babysitting, a ride, or just a family dinner. I offer friendship to those who may need a friend. In my home I teach my children how to pray and teach them scripture stories. I teach them to be honest, dependable, and the value of hard work. They don't always appreciate the lessons, but I hope that when they are grown they will have these attributes and in turn teach their families and help others.
