Hi I'm Sarah

I'm a Mormon economist that loves to work on my own car and serve others. I was just called as a missionary!

About Me

I am twenty one years old with nothing to hold me down! I love to drive with the windows down, listen to music from every era, wear converse all stars, and cuddle up with a book by the fire. I just graduated with my BA in economics, and I plan to go on for my PhD so I can teach students about the wonderful world of econ! Meanwhile, I'm working at a craft store in the framing department and fixing my old hunk-of-junk car almost every week. I was just called as a missionary, and I will be serving in Chihuahua, Mexico! I am learning more Spanish every day so I can effectively teach and serve!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it feels right. Everything about the gospel makes me happy! I want to shout for joy, twirl around in the streets, and hug every person I see because I know that Heavenly Father loves me! I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because I know that everything I do in this life leads to eternal happiness. I love the feelings that following God's commandments give me of joy and peace. I know that Heavenly Father listens to me and helps me with everything. He listens to me!! He helps me with anything I need. I feel His love every day, at every moment, when I am choosing the right. I choose to be a member of this church because of the feelings I have had throughout my life of happiness and peace, and I am able to have joy every day when I seek to follow Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I believe that at every moment in this life, I am teaching. By my actions and by who I am as a person, others can learn from me and grow. I live my faith by being an example to others. I try to live as Christ did. In the community, I love to visit with people to see how they are doing and invite them to various activities. At work, I am always willing to share the gospel with my coworkers. I live so that they see there is a difference in my life--a good difference. One they want to have too. I work hard to earn a living for myself, but dedicate any spare moments I have to helping others, whether it be through physical help or just a smile and a hello.

Who is the Mormon prophet today?

Thomas S Monson is the current prophet on the earth today. When you read the scriptures, you can see a pattern in how President Monson and how the old prophets in the scriptures word things--that's because the wording from both sources comes from Heavenly Father. It's a wonderful blessing that Heavenly Father still calls prophets to lead the church today, just like the church was run anciently! My life has changed for the better through following the direction of the prophet! Show more Show less
