Hi I'm Sarah Mae

I'm an Anthropologist, a big sister, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

 I LOVE to travel! A couple of years ago I got the opportunity to work/study in Europe for the summer and when I got back to the States I decided that Anthropology was the degree I wanted to go into! However, I also love working with teenagers and in digital media! I just started my own garden, yikes! as well as a Break Dance Video. My life seems to always be super busy but I wouldn't have it any other way! 

Why I am a Mormon

 I love the peace the gospel brings into my life. I know and love many people who have been broken, beaten and depressed and seeing their pain makes my heart wrench. However, the gospel and my knowledge of the atonement always brings peace back into my soul. I know that after we die we will have the opportunity to be with and love our families once more and although there is so much pain in the world there is also so much joy and happiness. I know that our Father in Heaven loves and watches over every one of his sons and daughters here on Earth and is aware of all the sorrow and joy that we experience. The Book of Mormon and the Bible carry the word of God and Joseph S. Smith was a true prophet of God. There exists today living Prophets and Apostles who receive revelations on behalf of the Church and I know that we too can receive revelations on our own behalf as well as those we look after. These things give me peace and joy as I look to the future and I am hope that they will do the same for you. 

How I live my faith

 In my ward I have the opportunity to practice several hymns throughout the week so that come Sunday I will be able to accompany all the Women as we sing praises to our Heavenly Father and bring the spirit into our meetings. I've also been called as a Visiting Teacher, as such another woman in my ward and my self are given guardianship over several other women in the ward. Every month we try to visit them and share a message about the gospel. It's an excuse for us to ask how the other women are doing and assist them in any way we can and build up our relationships with those we live by.

Why do Mormons perform proxy baptisms in their temples?

Sarah Mae
 There are many individuals who will or did not get the opportunity to hear the Gospel while living upon the Earth. We believe that after death those individuals will have the opportunity to learn about the gospel and can then choose to either accept it or not. We perform Proxy Baptisms so that any individuals who choose to accept the Gospel after death can experience the same blessings in the here-after as those who were baptized while they were alive.
