Hi I'm Sarah

I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

About Me

I am a person of many interests. I believe strongly that with hard work and patience we can learn to become decent if not very good at anything we set our minds to. I cook, clean, sew, and do all those other household things. I also read, dream, and try to teach my daughter what is right. I love music-- trying new instruments, singing, and listening. I find alot of joy in doing what I'm supposed to do, when I'm supposed to do it, however, it is a lifelong pursuit and I'm still working on it.

Why I am a Mormon

The simple answer as to why I'm a Mormon is because I was raised Mormon. However, from a very young age, I knew that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true. Early on I was taught to pray, and this has always been a strength to me in my life. I can remember praying as a child, even for very silly things, and strongly believing I would receive them. The Lord has never let me down. He has always provided a way for me to make my situation better, even if I didn't understand it at the time. Sometimes I will see things or hear things that cause me to question the truthfulness of the church or the words of the prophets. When this happens, I go to the scriptures, or read the words of the living prophets, and the peace and comfort I feel is undeniable. I know the Lord is mindful of me and my situation, and loves me as his daughter. This keeps me strong.

How I live my faith

Recently I was asked to help organize cultural arts events for the church in our area. Planning the details of activities meant to bring the community together, as well as strengthen their faith, is something I really enjoy and look forward to. A few months ago I was praying to have more opportunities to serve the people around me more directly. Not long after, the leaders of our church's womens organization assigned me to visit a lady in our ward who is a blind widow. Having no children living at home, she was in need of much assistance. Helping her has enriched my life incredibly. Seeing her faith, through her struggles, has strengthened me. Helping her has brought greater meaning into my life. I am so grateful for the opportunities being a member of the church has provided me to serve.
