Hi I'm Sarah

I am a classic movie lover. I'm a goal setter and a day dreamer. I'm a seeker of adventrues. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Virginia and just recently moved to Colorado to live near my mom and sister after my father passed away from cancer In 2010. I miss Virginia greatly but moving to Colorado has proved to be a huge blessing for my life already. I currently work as a welding assistant/shop girl, where we design, engineer and manufacture fluid and air handling pumps and systems. I never imagined myself in this line of work and liking it, but I enjoy what I do. My plan is to save money so I can finish up my bachelors/masters in psychology. My wish is to help children and young adults who have suffered trauma and veterans dealing with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Have you ever felt like you had been given a calling in life? Thats how I feel about helping other people. I know that the experiences I have gone through in my life, whether they were good or bad, were for my profit and learning and from the things I've learned I hope to help others going through similar experiences. In my free time I like to do a little bit of everything, from going to the theater, to camping, to reading a good book at a local coffee shop. I'm in love with the 1940's, so I am always listening to jazz and blues or swing dancing at my favorite swing club. And lets not forget my favorite pass time of all, spending time with my close friends! My friends are my family!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon for many reasons. I joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints on October 31, 1997, when I was 12 years old. At that point I didn't fully understand the true importance of having the gospel in my life, I just knew that it made me happy. Since then I have come to gain a testimony of the many reasons why each and every one of us, needs the gospel in our lives. For starers, I am a Mormon because I prayed to the Lord and asked Him if this Church really is His church and if I should become a member of it. The answer I recieved was, Yes. That in its self is reason enough to be Mormon, right?! I've also seen the blessing of being a member of the church in my everyday life, from finding peace when my dad passed away in the knowlegde that families can be together forever , to the simple joy I get from going to church every Sunday and learning how to be more like my Savior. Those are just a few reasons why I am a Mormon. I had a few years in my early 20s where I wasn't active in the church. It was a time in my life where depression ruled over me and I found myself lost and confused, searching for happiness everywhere but in the church. After a few years of doing what society told me would make me happy I realized that society had it all wrong! I had moments of happiness but I was never truely happy. That's when I made the changes in my life necessary and returned to church. Since then I have gone through some of the hardest trials in my life, like losing my father to cancer, that if I had remained the person I was before they would have destroyed me. Yet Heavenly Father and the Holy Ghost have given me so much peace and happiness that even though those trials were difficult and sad, I always felt a true sence of happiness and hope in life. I am a Mormon because I've never been happier at any point in my life than when I'm living the gospel and striving everyday to become more like my Savior. It is my way of life and I love it!

How I live my faith

I strive to do my best everyday to be a living testimony of the gospel and of my Savior Jesus Christ. Some of the ways I do that is just by living what I believe, by showing kindness to others and finding little ways to serve those around me. I love baking, so a lot of times I will make cupcakes and then drop them off at someone house who I know has had a rough week and needs to be shown they are being thought of. It's the simple things in life that make a big difference.
