Hi I'm Sarah Maelyssa

My dad played bball for BYU, my mom is a prof. News Anchor/Reporter. I do yoga and love trampolines & family! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have got a lot to work on, and I love my Savior Jesus Christ! I am here to help others, and to find joy. My faith in Christ has been changing me into a rock throughout all the changes I overcome. Since my parents divorced when I was three, I've kept burning my "oil lamp" through following my heart and choosing to have faith and hope! I come from a family of 9 including all of my syblings and parents. I'm a certified scuba diver, human physiology and shark enthusiast!!! I've been a competitor for Miss Rexburg, Upper Valley Idol and made All Region Honorable Mention for Varsity Volleyball. I am me.

Why I am a Mormon

Basically, it feels GOOD. I believe in modern day revelation. I have felt the Holy Ghost confirm to me that The Prophet today is a Prophet of God's choosing! I know that there is opposition, therefore I know that there is a God. I personally have read the Book of Mormon in Spanish and English and I know that Joseph Smith translated those ancient records by people that did live and breath. I know that God knew them, and that He knows me just as well. I know that when I show my faith, I am happy. Porque yo creo en un Dios amoroso y viviente con amor perfecto, con un plan para nosotros, y en modern revelacion y revelacion personal en y solomente mediante el libro de mormon, y en el expiacion de dios y el hijo de dios se llama Jesuscristo. Ire trear el mundo es verdad! en los palabras de profeta jose smith, "Brethren, Shall we not go on in so great a cause!"

How I live my faith

I follow the example of Jesus Christ by living His living gospel. I find that it is the same today as it always has been. We read in The Book of Mormon that Jesus Christ is The Savior of the world. I know that He is my Savior when I choose to repent and be cleansed from my sins. I have seen how this world keeps on getting further and further away from the true gospel (unchanging) principles of Jesus Christ, and I have seen how unhappiness always comes with following the world. I know that when I follow what I learn from Living Prophets I am lead to happiness and I am guided by A LIVING God and I feel His love for me. I am aware that returning to Him is my main goal, and it is only possible through my Faith in The only begotten Son, and my Faith and Repentance, Baptism, and obedience to Him. I know that there is only one way, through His ordinances and that they are made possible for everyone, the living and the dead.

What is the First Vision?

Sarah Maelyssa
The first vision is The name given to the event when God, The Father and His Son Jesus Christ revealed to a young pure hearted boy that the True Gosple of Jesus Christ was not on the earth, and that God, The Father revealed to this young boy that it was through him that He would restore it by calling him a prophet three years later in 1823.
