Hi I'm Sarah Drago

I am a mother of 5, wife, volleyball coach, community volunteer, preschool teacher, fundraising coordinator, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother of 5 wonderful children. I have 1 boy and 4 girls. I had 5 kids in 8 years. They are the reason for my happiness along with my husband. We look forward to summer time so we can spend the days off as a family. I love volunteering. I have been an AYSO soccer board member, Event chair for our school's silent auction night, served on the Public Affairs council, coach soccer, volleyball, and basketball. I love meeting people. I love hearing their stories and their life experiences. I enjoy reading, playing sports, and laughing. I chose to have a positive attitiude.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon not only because I was raised as one, but because I gained my own testimony. I have always known the principles of the gosple to be true. I did not question them as I grew up. But once I was out on my own I had to look at my life and chose to live the gosple or find a different path. I found that there were guidelines given not to restrict but to help me through my life. I realized this through my day to day life. I knew that I would have to stay on the path the Lord laid out for me to find true happiness. Even though I have made mistakes in my life, I never feel too far. When faced with a temptaion I had preset decisons of how I would respond. That was the key. Deciding today what I would do tomorrow. It made it easier to stay away from sin. Now I am married in the temple and a mother. Choices are still out there and some decisions are hard to make. But I know who I am "A daughter of God." I know he loves me and I do not want to disappoint him. I chose to do right.

How I live my faith

I live my life by serving the Lord. I have found that if I put the Lord first he will bless me. This has been the case in my life. I have served in leadership positions, as a visiting teacher, I have worked with the youth, organized church activities... in all this work I feel I have been blessed more than others. I usually get to work with someone I hadn't before. I learn to appreciate others and the talents they have. I gain knowledge of things I didn't know how to do before. I appreciate the life I have and the community feel of our church. In our ward or area we attend church we truly get to know most people who attend. We take care of eachother as we would immediate family members. We become a family. We help eachother with rides, babysit eachothers kids, bring in meals, help pack or move a home. We become a service oriented people. Not because it's asked of us or because it's a duty. We do these things because we are friends and love eachother.
