Hi I'm Sarah

I'm a pharmacist. I'm a musician. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

 I like to think that I experience the world as a scientist. I am always asking why, just ask my parents about that one, and trying to find the answers. I look for patterns and like to follow things to their logical conclusion. That is probably why I was so drawn to pharmacy. On the flip-side, I enjoy experiencing life as a musician. I play more musical instruments than I have fingers and toes. I like to listen to the wind, to singing birds, to flowing streams. There is power and feeling in music that I can't adequately describe with science--but I can with religion, which seems to be able to mix and combine the extremes of my life into one whole.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe that all truth can be circumscribed into one great whole. The human body is so elegant, so divine. I would sit in graduate level physiology courses marveling at God's creations. Science has not pulled me away from my religion but has testified of it. How could such perfect complexity, from a hand or a heart to the tiniest macrophage just occur due to random chance? As a scientist, I like to understand the "whys" of everything. A chemistry professor once taught me that if you understand the whys, you understand everything. So, why am I a Mormon? The messages of my religion reverberate in my soul as if I were listening to a grand symphony. It feels right. It is so true. I pray and I receive answers, how can one deny that? When I go to the temple, I understand things going on in my life from a different perspective. I am uplifted, my mind is clear--I feel happy, pure, and loved. How could that be wrong?

How I live my faith

I attend church on Sunday. I actually played the organ for our meetings for a while. I am also very involved in a choir of young adults members of the church in my community. We sing and dance and teach teenagers about the importance of good, clean music. We also sing very spiritual songs that teach about Christ. I live a sober and chaste life and don't regret it. I'm an adult, capable of making my own decisions, and this is the life I have chosen for myself. It is uplifting, peaceful, and beautiful.
