Hi I'm Sarah

I grew up in Georgia. I am part of my high school drumline. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love music. I am part of my high school marching band and have been since my freshman year. The drumline has very different morals then I am used to but I have slowly taught them how to act better when I am around. I enjoy sports especially football and used to play soccer. I also stand out due to a fascination with automechanics.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents are both members as well as their parents and their brothers and sisters so I have grown up in this church. I have still obtained my own testimony through trials and tribulations throughout my life. Prayer and scripture reading have become essential to my life over the years. Even when I am struggling prayer and the scriptures connect me to Christ who will help me through my struggles.

How I live my faith

The youth (including my sister and I) meet every morning before school for scripture study. My job is to take attendance and a count of whoreads their scriptures every night. It is interesting how this calling has opened my eyes to how active people are in the church and makes me want to reach out to them.

How does the Church finance its operations?

Church members pay 10% of their income to the church as tithing. This money then goes towards building maintenance and construction among many other things. Once a month, members also pay an offering called a fast offering which is about as much as one would spend on food for a day. This money goes specifically to the needy in the community.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

No. Most of the people the Church serves are not members. Victims of tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, tsunamis, and other natural and non-natural disasters are all helped by the Church with no preference for religion or race. Show more Show less
