Hi I'm Sarah

I'm a mother, artist, performer, CNA, country music buff, and have a huge crush on my husband. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Utah and moved to Idaho and then Colorado when I was 10 years old. I love Colorado. I come from strong, amazing, and talented parents who taught us to to go above and beyond in all we do. I've been married 10 years now to a wonderful man and am grateful every day for our eternal marriage. I have four children who challenge me more than anything else in my life. They make me a better woman of God and bring joy to my soul. I am amazed how my Heavenly Father continues to bless me with a full and rich life. I recently became a CNA and work in a retirement home. My work brings me so much happiness. I feel privileged to help others at such a precious time of life. I also teach art classes to children and youth. It helps me keep in touch with my artistic side and grow my abilities. I love the stage! My spring times are often filled with rehearsals with my community theater. I love being able to entertain and bring happiness and laughter to others.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon family, however when I was 14 years of age I gained my own testimony of the truth of this gospel. I know it is true. It allows me to experience freedom and safety in a world filled with dangers and things that imprison the soul. I feel like I can reach my full potential because of the principles that the Book of Mormon teaches. I know that I am a divine daughter of God and that he wants me to return to Him. Each day I see how my life is directed to avoid sorrow and sin because of our faith in this gospel and the knowledge that we have of our Heavenly Fathers Plan. The Holy Ghost has confirmed this to my heart and mind time and time again of the fullness of its truth.

How I live my faith

I love church. I have the great opportunity to teach the 4 & 5 year old children. Each week I prepare a lesson and have the opportunity to help them learn of Heavenly Fathers plan for them and also learn the amazing stories of the scriptures. Our Primary(children's organization) is truly inspired and gives our children the confidence to choose what is right. I love the women of my church. They are so quick to serve and lift one another. The friendships I have with them are sister-like. We continually serve one another and also offer our talents and time to any one in need. Our motto is "Charity Never Faileth." Its true, charity never fails to lift a soul in need. And sometimes even my soul is in need.

How are modesty and chastity related? How can parents teach their children to be modest in dress, language and behavior?

I teach my children that their appearance is their first impression to the world. From there our dress, language, and behavior either invites the good of the world into each of our lives or it invites the bad. I witnessed this as a teenager. I abided by the standards that Heavenly Father taught me and dressed modestly. Boys treated me with more respect than other girls. They even defended my honor at times because they could see that it was who I was and what I stood for. Dirty jokes were stopped, foul language was corrected and rude or crude behavior was avoided around me. It was scary at times to be different than others, but it shaped who I am today. I still abide by those same standards and feel more close to my Heavenly Father because of them. Show more Show less
