Hi I'm Sabra

I'm an undergrad at Indiana University. I'm a writer, a geek, a Gnomie, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a student at Indiana University, Bloomington. I'm active in my dorm planning dances and other large-scale programs for the community at large. My hobbies include writing, internet, cosplaying, sewing, and dungeons and dragons. Well, I dont get to write much that isn't for class...and cosplaying is on the back burner as it's hard for the group to find a time where we're all free...my new DM is in said group, so we really haven't had any games this semester... and as for the sewing...I'm actually sitting in my dorm room, staring at my sewing machine thinking about how I really should take it out of the box... Any college student/Alumni will know what this feels like

Why I am a Mormon

Being a Mormon is one of those things that came naturally to me. I guess you could say I "grew up in the Church", but my mother (who was a single mom) never pushed me into anything. She let me explore other religions, study up on my choices and never made me feel like I would be caste out if I decided to leave the Church. That being said, I've never had much of a desire to leave. The Church is my home, my second family. I love everyone and I know they love me (they may not like me sometimes, or I them, but we still love each other) I know the Church is true, I know that Joseph Smith was a Prophet of the Lord who restored His gospel to us on the earth. I know that Thomas Monson is a Prophet the same as Joseph Smith and Prophets of old. I know, from continued reading, that the Book of Mormon is the word of God, as is the Bible. I know the Priesthood is the power of God on this earth. The Priesthood is a power great enough to hold the universe together, to create stars and galaxies; yet is gentle enough to bless a new born baby.

How I live my faith

I attend church as often as I can, which is most Sundays (I'd be lying if I said I could go every Sunday). I participate as much as my schooling allows in my branch's Young Single Adult programs. I currently have no callings, but in the past I helped plan Youth dances and activities, and helped coordinate Family Home Evenings for my young single adult branch.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Nope! We help other Mormons in need as much as we help everyone else. For example, I went on several service projects over my time as a youth (12-18) helping those in my community. From stocking food pantries, to making baby blankets for newborns at a local hospital, to shoveling drive ways. I continue even now. Show more Show less
