Hi I'm Sarah.

I'm a mother of 3 spunky redheads, wife of an art director, and freelance writer as time permits. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

As a stay-at-home mother to three, I am able to do a little freelance writing, a bit of exercise, and a lot of cleaning. I'm the oldest of six children, have a BA in Journalism, spent a semester abroad in London, married my soul mate, worked in marketing, and then had children. Since then, I've taken up a number of skills I never thought I would, but that makes me a better wife, mother, and woman. Recently, my husband and I have taken up cycling. While we ride together, we forge a stronger bond as a couple and see the world from a new perspective, marveling at God's creations. At home, at work, and at play, my husband and I greet each day as an opportunity to do better. At the end of the day, we don't always feel like we've succeeded, but that's what life is for: doing better.

Why I am a Mormon

Initially, I was a Mormon because my parents and grandparents were. As I navigated my way through my teenage years, I had opportunities to pray in earnest, and those prayers were answered. Through my life, as I have been faced with challenges and trials, I have become acutely aware that my Heavenly Father knows me personally. I cannot deny the peace and joy I have in my life, knowing I am a child of God. Everything else just makes sense after that.

How I live my faith

Each day I ask myself, "Is this my best?" It might not be someone else's best, but I always try to give MY best. It's easy to be overwhelmed by what everyone else is doing, or what you think you should be doing. I've learned that the best, safest, easiest thing to do is to return to basics. While I'd love to say I live all aspects of the gospel faithfully, that's just not realistic. The Savior doesn't expect us to be perfect. I keep in my mind the basic phrase, "I am a child of God." With those simple words as a foundation, I also know that He sent his son, Jesus Christ, to Earth, where he taught us to love one another and serve each other. Remembering those basic lessons is the compass for my life and leads to happiness and peace.
