Hi I'm Sarah.

I live in Colorado. I am learning ASL, and I love to volunteer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have a passion for languages and learning. I love school work, as well as volunteer work. I'm a Junior in high school right now. My first priority is to get married and raise a family. I plan on getting my Bachelor's Degree in Biology, then I want to work on becoming a physical therapist. Although having a family is very important to me, and I want to have one as soon as possible, I want to be able to support them as well in case my husband is unable to. If I can, I want to be able to serve a mission, as well, although my family does come before this. I have a little brother that has Autism and Cerebral Palsy. He is the main reason why I want to be a physical therapist. I love him so much; he is such an inspiration to me. I have 5 blood siblings. My mother and father also adopted two girls amd did foster foster care for another girl. My mother died giving birth to my last brother, Peter, the one with Autism and CP. My dad remarried a few years later, and I got four new siblings. I love all of my family so much, I don't know where I would be without them.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it is the type of lifestyle that I believe in. Living with love towards others makes me so happy, I cannot even explain. And service always seems to make all of my own problems disappear, or seem much less important. That's not the only reason, though. I have studied the scriptures and what the presidents and leaders of said, and I know that what they say and teach is true. Another important part of why I am a Mormon is the ordinances that I know must be done in order for my salvation, and the LDS Church is the one that lets me receive them.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in many ways. In my ward, I am in the Presidency of the "Laurels" in my girl's youth program. The Laurels are the girls that are from 16-18. I go to the activities and I try to make sure that everyone is included. Every morning during the school week, I get up at 5 am to read the scriptures. My family reads together at 5:30, then I go to seminary. This year, we are studying the New Testament. I also try to help around in my neighborhood when I can.
