Hi I'm Sadie

I have red hair, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love my life. I was born and raised in North Idaho where I spent most of my time running, playing piano and harp, painting, reading, camping, and supporting my seven siblings in their various activities. After high school I attended Brigham Young University in Provo where I had the unique opportunities to study semesters abroad in both Nauvoo, IL, and Jerusalem, Israel. After graduating with a degree in Socio-Cultural Anthropology I got a job and moved to Colorado. I've been in Colorado ever since where I continue to learn and grow and make friends of all kinds.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family who belonged to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I was raised in the Church, but I choose to stay a member because I can see how living my life according to the teachings of the Church bring me happiness. I believe the teachings because I can see and feel the positive consequences of choosing right and negative consequences of sin. I know that the way I live my life brings me, and will continue to bring, the greatest and most fulfilling experiences of life on Earth. As His child and creation, it makes sense to me to have God intimately involved in the details of my life. I have felt His influence in the major events as well as the minute. I welcome His guidance and living by principles revealed to His prophets that do not fetter my independece, but enable me to become like my Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I was single and didn't know anyone in Colorado before I moved there save a few family members. Choosing to attend my local LDS young single adult (YSA) congregation blessed me with lifelong friends and a sense of belonging and purpose. A few months after moving to the state I was asked to serve as a leader over activities and serve on a planning committee for regional YSA events. These opportunities helped accelerate my acclimation to the new area and I value the relationships I built during that time. Participating in social activities and encouraging others to do the same helps me increase in my faith in "moving your feet" as a way to receive blessings from Heavenly Father. My participation eventually led me to meet the man who is now my husband. We continue to live our faith by making friends with all kinds of people and encouraging them in their own pursuits of faith and belonging.
