Hi I'm Sara!

I'm a full time Horticulture student at BYU-Idaho, lover of sewing, bowling, and most outdoor activities. I love everything soil.

About Me

I am attending BYU-Idaho majoring in Horticulture. I love to pull weeds and put my fingers and toes in warm, moist soil. My favorite thing to do by myself is to be outside with my plants. My family is first in my life. They support me in every righteous desire that I have. I love to FaceTime with them everyday. My little brothers are my pride and joy. They are my closest guy friends and I love them so much. My best friend is my older sister Judy and we do everything we possibly can together. I like to sew my own clothes, make personalized cards, and watch black and white movies. The outdoors is where I love to explore. Someday I will have my own Secret Garden where my future children and I will spend all of our time.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up participating in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. It wasn't until I turned 12 that I really knew that the church was true. I went to a church-sponsored summer camp for girls called "Girls Camp". I learned in those four days away from home that I really had a Father in Heaven that knew me personally. He loved me for who I truly was. I came to know that although I am here on Earth away from my Heavenly Father, I am here for a reason - to become like my Savior. Heavenly Father sent His son, Jesus Christ, to atone for my sins, iniquities, infirmities, and temptations. Because of this, I am able to repent daily and become better day by day. Because of this, I am able to love my fellow man. Because of this, I m able to see my own potential and the future that Heavenly Father wants for me, His daughter. Since that summer when I was 12, my knowledge of the gospel of Jesus Christ has increased tremendously. I have learned so much more about my Savior and the love that both my Father in Heaven and my older bother, Jesus Christ, love me so much. I know that they want what is best for me and they will do all they can to help me.

How I live my faith

I have learned that in order to continually become better, I must do three things - Study the scriptures daily, pray daily to Heavenly Father, and attend all church meetings. When I do these three simple things, I am able to see that Christ is the center of my life. When I have Christ as my center, everything else in life falls into place. I am able to love those I come in contact with, be more humble, and strengthen my weaknesses. All of this happens because of the Atonement of Jesus Christ. I have also found that true obedience to the Lord's commandments also greatly blesses me. I am able to control the natural man in me much more when I consciously strive to live His commandments. I love this gspel!
