Hi I'm Sarah

I am a stay at home mom. I love living in Colorado. My family is everything to me. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a stay-at-home mother of three with the fourth angel on the way. I truly love my job...most days. :) I love going out to the movies with my girlfriends. Every girl needs a girls night out. :) Ever since I was a little girl I have absolutely loved horses. We don't currently have any but hopefully one day soon we will. My husband works incredibly hard so that I can stay home with our babies. I am really grateful to be married to my best friend. All in all I have a pretty sweet life, I am truly blessed.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a convert to the church and the only member of my family. Growing up I had gone to church with friends a handful of times. I had always known in my heart that Jesus was the Christ. It was just one of those undeniable truths in life. I wasn't taught it at any specific age that I can remember, but I always knew it to be true. I never had any reason or desire to seek out other religions or even churches for that matter. I was taught that as long as I knew that Jesus was the Christ and I had him in my heart that I would be saved and go to heaven. From that stand point I was very satisfied with myself and my place in this life and the one to come. So naturally when two young missionaries came nocking on my door I was less than pleased to see them there. I had no need for them, I was confident with my relationship with God and didn't need anyone else trying to push their beliefs on me. Standing before me were two young men who were very well dressed and very polite. I was almost amused at the thought that they believed they could tell me something I didn't already know. I was just a little too full of myself and my own knowledge, which I thought to absolute. They certainly did seem happy and at ease to be there. I didn't know what kind of nonsense they were selling but I decided to be nice and to let them in the door. I eventually began to honestly listen and that's when I decided I wanted to know for myself if what they were saying was true. I already had a relationship with God so I felt confident asking. I knew that He would never lie to me. I didn't want it to be true. If it was true I would loose my friends and support of my family. The answer that I received was undeniable. I could not run from it, nor did I want to. I made the decision to be baptized and become a member of this church, it was the single most important thing I had done in my life up to that point. I had never felt such joy and purpose. I have never once regretted the decision I made that day.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith every single day. It certainly isn't easy considering it isn't something that I grow up doing. I very often have to remind myself to get on my knees and talk to my father in heaven. Life is very fast and always busy with 3 beautiful babies who are almost always running, laughing, screaming and/or crying. :) It's the most amazing thing to be able to call on my Father in Heaven daily and in all things. He helps me in every aspect of my life. He is there for me through every hardship and trial, even when I can't see it for myself. My faith is the one constant thing in my life that I know will never falter or grow old. Having this amazing testimony of the truthfulness of this gospel has not kept me from making my own mistakes and falling short. I am certainly not spotless before my Heavenly Father but I do strive to be. Just because I am not perfect today does not mean that I never will be. Each day that I am blessed to wake up and spend with my family is yet another opportunity for me to be better than the day before. I am so very excited and humbled to be able teach this amazing gospel to my children. It is such a huge and rewarding responsibility to have children. I so desperately want to give my children every advantage in life. I can't think of anything better than to arm them with the tools that they are going to need to not only survive, but to thrive and be truly happy and fulfilled in this life and the one to come.
