Hi I'm Sarah

I'm a stay-at-home mom. I'm a math tutor and piano teacher. I'm an avid reader of books and baker of cookies. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother to three beautiful, rambunctious boys. Our family loves camping and boating together. I enjoy cooking, baking, and reading. I love to learn new things. I taught junior high math for a year before my first son was born, and now tutor math and teach piano from home. I love to sing. I like making things with my own hands, from homemade whole wheat bread to handmade bibs for my baby.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that This is God's church. Being a member of this church gives my life purpose and meaning. Because of covenants that I have made in the temple, I know that it is possible to be with my family in the eternities. This makes my family relationships that much richer, knowing they will continue beyond this life. I know the Book of Mormon is the word of God. I have read it over and over again, and continue to find divine guidance within it's pages. Because of my membership in this church, I know that God speaks to us still today. I know that we have a living prophet who receives revelation for the world today. I also know and am grateful that we can receive personal revelation through the gift of the Holy Ghost. I love my Savior, Jesus Christ, and am grateful for oppprtunities to serve in the church, and in my community, as He did.

How I live my faith

I have the opportunity to serve in different areas at church. In the past, I have taught music to toddlers in our nursery; planned church activities and socials; arranged volunteers to bring meals to families who are recovering from surgery, childbirth, or other difficulties; played the piano on Sundays; and served as a counselor to our women's organization. I enjoy the opportunity to serve because I learn each time I do. I visit several of my ward sisters through our visiting teaching program every month to bring them a Gospel message and learn ways that I can support and strengthen them. I have helped make hats, slippers, and quilts, and have helped assemble hygiene kits to aid in humanitarian relief efforts through the church humanitarian aid center, and to help with community organizations locally. As a family, we read the Book of Mormon and pray together every day, bringing strength and unity into our home. We set aside Monday nights for "Family Home Evening," where we can have time to teach the commandments to our children, and strengthen each other's testimonies.
