Hi I'm Sara

I love learning, laughing, singing, being a mom, and watching a lot of Star Trek with my husband. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a stay-at-home mom with two beautiful little girls who I just can't get enough of! I'm a girl who is crazy about math and computer science, but I also love interior design, music, and photography. I love figuring things out for myself and learning a little bit of everything. I love to read, learn, and pursue truth in all areas.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of this church because of my personal relationship with my Heavenly Father. Through the gospel of Jesus Christ I have come to know of His deep love for me and for all of His children. I have learned that we are not alone on this Earth, that He is here to guide us. I know that my Savior directs me in the paths He needs me to go. I am overwhelmed with gratitude when I think about how much the Lord has done for me, for it can never be fully repaid. I know that He has a specific purpose for me and that all things in this life are preparing me to be the person He knows I can be.

How I live my faith

I have served in my church in many different ways. On different occasions I taught the 16 and 17-year-olds, 12 and 13-year olds, and 4 and 5-year-olds. I am an advocate of truth in all areas of my life, and I use the Gospel of Jesus Christ to help me understand where I should stand. The most important way I can live my faith is just by being a genuine friend to those who need one.

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

Sara
Many people would say that Mormon women are just like other women, and while that may be true to some extent, the Gospel of Jesus Christ demands that we be different. Mormon women, like all women of faith, try to set themselves apart from the women of the world by being chaste, virtuous, selfless, and full of purity. In the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we know that men and women are equal to God. Equality is not sameness. I am not the same as any of my dear sisters, for we all have different talents; it is the same with men and women. While we have different strengths, weaknesses, and roles, we both play an integral part to Heavenly Father's plan. Men and women are called upon to be two halves of a whole. Without each other, we cannot complete the Father's work. In the family, men and women are equal partners. Fathers and mothers each have a place in their children's lives that cannot be replaced. They are different roles, but both essential. Show more Show less
