Hi I'm Sara

I'm a college student from Colorado and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up just outside of Denver and I'm now currently a sophomore in college. I don't know exactly where my life is going but I am excited about going there.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church, but that does not answer why I am a member. If I did not know that the church is true, I am the type of person that would not go. I have come to love the church and all that I have learned from being a member. The doctrine taught in the LDS faith makes so much sense to me and gives me comfort and direction. If I was not a member then I know that I would be lost. I get discouraged often and lose hope, but whenever I do, I turn to the Lord our Savior and ask for help. I am never once denied the help I need. The church has saved my life and given me knowledge that I would not get outside of my faith.

How I live my faith

My faith has shaped me into a good person, or at least I like to think that I am a good person. When I am forced to make a hard decision, like if I want to go to a party and hang out with my friends, or stay with my family and help them out, I fall back on the church and realize that there are priorities in life and I will only be strengthened by staying away from toxins like alcohol and drugs. By knowing that Christ sacrificed his Life for ME has helped me live in a way that might be pleasing to my Heavenly Father.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Family is where true strength and support comes from. They are the people you are tied to no matter what, so it is important to do what you can to develop love for them. Satan will always target the family and try to tear us apart, so we need to act in opposition to him and do what we can to pull each other together. Additionally, we as latter day saints, believe that families are an eternal body, that we can be together forever. As such, we need to learn how to love each other on earth and create a happy place in the home. Our family is where we can find relief from external stresses. Show more Show less
