Hi I'm Sarah

I'm a mother of two, a graduate Occupational Therapist and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a graduate Occupational Therapist, and a stay at home wife and mother. I had my little boy 2 weeks after graduating, (so I've never actually worked as an OT), and he'll be 2 in December. I am also eagerly awaiting the arrival of our little princess, due in a couple of days. I love spending time with my husband (because I love him and because he's not home as much as would be nice!); and time with my little boy each day. You'll often find me at the beach, building sandcastle after sandcastle, at rhyme time, or outside, kicking balls or playing whatever Timmy wants to play that day. It has been a fun adventure that will only continue with the expansion of our family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon - a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, because I have prayed about the truths I've been taught, and I have received answers confirming those truths from my Father in Heaven. I feel the peace that the Spirit brings each time I share my testimony, and hear others testify of truth. I am so grateful I have had the chance to learn of my Saviour Jesus Christ, and to feel the peace that comes with knowing I can be forgiven for mistakes I make each day, and asking for that forgiveness. I also have a strong testimony of families, and how we can be together forever as we make and keep covenants with the Lord, only available through His power and authority, and in His holy house, the Temple. This truth stirs particularly deep feelings within me, as I have experienced joy in my family; and true sorrow at the death of loved ones. Knowing that I can be with my mother and others dear to me after this life is such a comfort and blessing to me.

How I live my faith

I love working with the children, and the teenagers, and the women's organisation. I love every aspect of the gospel of Jesus Christ, and I try to live the principles of it each day of my life. It means I order a hot chocolate instead of coffee; spend my time with my baby boy through the week instead of working in my profession; go to church every Sunday for the whole 3 hours and try to keep it 'holy'; and I try to help whoever needs help each day. I'm involved in the organisational committee for the womens organisation where we find ways of helping families in special need - providing meals for the needy, caring for those who experience struggles and losses in their lives, and we also have fun socialising.
