Hi I'm Sarah

I'm a college student. I'm a pianist. I'm a daughter and an aunt. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love music, I love to play the piano, and I love volleyball! I love to talk to people and learn about their past. Sometimes I worry that I pry too much but hey, nobody has said anything yet! I love to window shop for cute purses, scarves, wallets, and calendars but very rarely actually buy anything. I am going to college in Idaho and I plan on being a Medical Assistant and a Nutritionist. When I'm not at college I work in the glorious food service business serving seafood in the local mall.

Why I am a Mormon

I was actually "born into" the church. My parents are Mormon as are their parents. When I was younger I went to church because my family did. There's a point that I think everyone reaches where you realize you can't live life under your parent's wing and have to learn for yourself what life is all about. It was then that I realized for myself that the teachings of this church are true and good. I noticed a pattern in my life relating to my happiness. When I was faithfully following the teachings of God I was happy. When I wasn't following the teachings of God I was, well, unhappy. It's like exercise. It may be difficult at first, but when you consistently exercise you feel good and healthy. Slacking off and eating 4 dozen pepperoni doughnuts might be the easier way and feels good at the moment, but soon after you will feel a bit uncomfortable and even later on down the road you will feel slow and out of energy.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to show kindness to everyone I come in contact with. At work I treat all customers with respect and try to avoid gossiping about others. In the Mormon church we have a program set up where every lady in the congregation will be visited by other ladies in their same congregation and inversely every lady in the congregation will be given an opportunity to visit other ladies in their same congregation. This gives us a chance to get to know each other and make sure that everyones social, physical, and spiritual needs are being met. I take that opportunity to visit my fellow women in the church. I am also part of the organization of the program for my congregation so I can check up on how everyone in the congregation is doing. In my future studies as a Nutritionist I hope to be able to teach the importance of having a healthy and energized body. Many know that Mormons do not drink or smoke, but in addition to that we have other guidelines in nutrition that will help us and anyone to stay healthy for the long term. It's amazing to me how these guidelines, which were given to us by God in the 1800's, have recently become more and more approved and accepted in the science of health. I plan to teach these widely accepted and proved health practices in the future as a Nutritionist.
