Hi I'm Sara Risenmay

Hi I'm Sara. I love to sing and have been called to serve in Texas. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a student at Brigham young university in Provo Utah. I am considering majoring in elementary education or communication disorders.I grew up in a very small county town named othello. Singing is something I love as well as ballroom dance. I am very involved in drama productions with the church, school and community. I love being outdoors, camping, and spending quality time with my family. I am the oldest of six kids and am excited for the day when I can be a mom.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because nothing else in this crazy world can be in me such happiness, joy, comfort and assurance that I have a purpose and have an eternal destiny. Life would have no purpose or meaning if I didn't have this church in my life. I am imperfect and need a savior to cleanse me from sin. This church has taught me that I can be saved. I am a mormon and I am proud of it.

How I live my faith

I love being involved in my ward. I have been given various callings like primary teacher, relief society president and ward missionary. I consider these opportunities to serve, grow and become closer to fellow members of the ward. Visiting teaching is also a very important activity that I participate in. Getting to know and serve the women I visit teach has helped me grow and assist those women more fully. Now I am currently dedicating a year and a half to The Lord while I serve as a missionary in the Texas San Antonio mission. I feel so blessed to be a representative of Jesus Christ.
