Hi I'm Sara Fryman

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother of two beautiful boys. I am a college student. I enjoy knitting and spending time with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I converted in April of 2011 to being a Mormon from being an atheist. My conversion all started with the passing of my grandmother. Her and my grandfather were married and inseparable for 50 years. After my grandmother passed away my grandfather turned to the church. He was baptized at age 73. I remember attending and being so proud of him for making the decision to be baptized. 11 months later my grandfather passed away. While attending his funeral with my family we were so moved by speaker at his service that my husband and I felt compelled to learn more about the Mormon religion. Prior to the funeral service my husband and I felt as though something were missing in our lives but we didn't know what. We went online to find out more and we decided to put in a request to have missionaries come and explain a little more. When the missionaries came to visit us they invited us to read the Book of Mormon and to pray to God to let us know for ourselves if the scriptures were true. While reading I felt a warm feeling fill my heart. The next time that the missionaries visited they invited us to attend a service. We attended 1 week before general conference. Before having a chance to return to church we were able to get online and watch general conference. The speakers seemed as though they were talking directly to my family. With in just a couple weeks the missionaries asked if we would like to be baptized. I was so honored that the missionaries had faith enough in me to invite me to be baptized and to continue living in the word of God. I remember the day that I was baptized very well. Everything seemed brighter and clearer. Both my husband and I felt overwhelmed with joy. Although the only family that attended was my sister, the room was filled with ward members welcoming us with open arms. I felt as though for once in my life I was home.

How I live my faith

I stated out teaching five year old children about the scriptures and what they can learn from them. I have since moved on to teaching eleven year old children with my husband at my side as we assist each other with the days lesson. I have enjoyed working on my families genealogy. I have discovered that I have family that are also Mormon. This was unbeknownst to me my whole life. I have been given the honor of finishing what my grandfather started. He passed away just one month before he could baptize my grandmother. I have since baptized her and am eager to seal them together. I enjoy talking to my fellow students about the love that our Heavenly Father has for each and every one of us. I am learning that I have a testimony of Jesus Christ to share with anyone who wants to hear.
