Hi I'm Sarah

I'm from Colorado, I am a Recruiter, an Artist and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I have a BFA in Fine Arts and continue to show and sell my work nationwide. I am a Sales Professional specific to Recruiting and Business Development. I love working with people!

Why I am a Mormon

Although I come from a bicultural and religious background, I was raised a Mormon and I know in my heart that it is the most “whole” gospel available to us at this time. Being a Mormon brings me peace and has blessed my life with goodness. I truly love to study and ponder all the cultures and religions of the world in relation to Mormon doctrine. When I do, I can see and feel the “wholeness” that this gospel has to offer at this time. When I do, I see many elements of truth spanning thousands of years and billions of people. Someone once told me a story about when a Missionary handed her an English Book of Mormon. She could "feel" the truth in the book even though, at the time, she could not speak or read English. I feel the same way. Truth speaks to the heart and sometimes words just fall short.

How I live my faith

My faith becomes more and more rooted as I learn about other religions and sciences and as I continue to pour my heart out to God. I was raised half the time in an Islamic home and I have a unique perspective on God and religion. To be a Mormon, I think, is to seek out truth in all things and to uplift the people around you. I feel closer to God when I am serving other people, when I study the scriptures and when I speak to Him in personal prayer. I pray as though I am talking to my own Mother or Father. I pour out my heart in prayer. I tell Him what my life is like, I thank Him for all He has given me, I ask Him questions, I ask for His help (even with the small things), and I pray in earnest for the people in my life.

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

Sarah
I love this question because it seems to always come up and it makes me so happy to answer that 'yes' men and women are equal in the church! The role of man and woman is to become 'one'. Both parties are different and come with strengths the other does not. Both are meant to come together and be a partnership. The Apostle Paul taught that “neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man, in the Lord” 1 Corinthians 11:11. In the sight of God, and in the marriage relationship, men and women are equally important. Show more Show less
