Hi I'm Sara

I love the beach, including sandy hair and no make up, and i'm a mormon

About Me

i am a full-time missionary at this time. When i am not a missionary though... i enjoy spending time on the beach...surfing... reading a good book, and spending time with my boyfriend and making him read the books i read. i am still on college, but missions puts everything on hold. so until then. Serving the lord is my hobby.  

Why I am a Mormon

because i want to be happy, and not just fleeting happiness, but which last for eternity. is it too much to ask to be happy forever?

How I live my faith

When i was attending a single's ward a congregation of young unmarried people, i loved the calling i had, i was the Family Home Evening Coordinator... which really only means that we would put together a lesson and an activity for the ward every week. I learned to be friendly and to get along with the people in my ward and to be better at public speaking. i live my faith by magnifying the callings, or responsibilities that God gives me in His church. A single's ward is made for single people to get together and get to know each other, not only to get married. i thought it was lots of fun, and that i can have fun with all kinds of people too. I learned a lot from the people i met there!   

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

Sara
This has got to be the funniest thing i have ever heard!!! i am a mormon woman and i think that i am normal... like any other woman. i like surfing, long walks on the beach with my fiance, eating out, going to school, and music and all that cool stuff. We do believe that man and woman have their specific roles in life, such as the woman's primary respinsibility is to be a mother and the man's is to provide. We as women are encouraged to go to school and to be prepared to help our families financially if needed, but our role here on earth is to be mothers so that we can help Heavenly Father with his plan of happiness, which is that we all go live with Him again. i feel happy being mormon and i feel honored to be able to be a mother and a wife and to help God to fulfill his plan. i can't wait to be married for time and all eternity to a man who loves me just as much as i love him.   Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe concerning the doctrine of grace?

Sara
We believe we are saved through grace after all we can do. Not through grace alone. As a missionary we come across lots of people and one particular day we were walking down the street and this man started talking to us, well he said that we are saved through grace only, that all we have to do is have faith. we do not believe that we only have to have faith. faith is action and we have to do what we can for others and for our own salvation.
