Hi I'm Sarah

I'm a full-time mom by day, piano teacher by afternoon, and a lullaby-singer/book reader to my kids by night. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in an LDS family, the oldest of 5 kids, smack dab in the middle of Utah. Music is my life, whether it's teaching piano after school everyday, teaching the children of our church songs every Sunday, or even just singing a simple lullaby to my 2 kids every night. I've been married to my sweet husband for 10 years, and look forward to the rest of eternity with him.

Why I am a Mormon

How can I have a testimony, if I grew up in the LDS faith? How would I know the church is true if I never experienced other religions? Because I was taught at a young age, about prayer. I grew up being taught how we can receive answers if we ask sincerely. It started out as simple things, 'please help me find my toy', 'please bless I won't be scared', etc. It was answers to these simple, and what would seem trivial, prayers that laid the building blocks for my faith in the truthfulness of the gospel. Without realizing it, I was strengthening a relationship with the Lord, one that I would need later on in life. When I was a teenager and doubted my own testimony of the church, I did what came so naturally, something I had been doing for years. Something I KNEW would work. I would pray. One night I thought I would ask, and see what would happen. Even before the words left my mouth, I felt an overwhelming sensation of warmth and love. I knew. I KNEW that the religion I had been following my entire life was indeed, true. So even though I haven't 'belonged' to other churches, I know without a doubt that this church is true. I have experienced too many miracles and answers to prayers in my life to doubt otherwise. I Believe. I Know.

How I live my faith

Being a mother is my number one priority and teaching my children is first and foremost. The most important one being to teach them they are loved: that they are children of God, who loves them, and have parents who love them as well. Family prayers every morning are something my children actually look forward to. This will probably change when they are teenagers, but right now it is such a blessing to hear their little voices ask for things they need, tell the Lord about their day, and list off things they are grateful for. It's such an honor to watch as they begin to lay their own building blocks of faith. For the past 3 years, I have also had the wonderful opportunity every Sunday to teach the children, ages 3-11, songs about our church, about Jesus and about the gospel. Hearing their little voices has strengthened my faith, and witnessing their own love and testimony of Christ is indescribable. I am so grateful to serve His little ones and watch them, and myself, grow.
