Hi I'm Sara

I'm a missionary and I'm a Mormon. :)

About Me

I am missionary serving in the Singapore mission. I am originally from Utah. Before the mission... I was in college and working part-time. I love playing sports, especially soccer. Art and music are my second love. I play the guitar, ukulele, violin, and piano. I often try to work on new skills and improve old ones.

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptized at the age of 8 and have since then tried to be the best I can be to live as I promised I would that great day. Every week when I attend church I am reminded of the great blessings we can all obtain if we strive to live by His standards, which are in the scriptures. I ask myself each day "Have I done any good today?" I am thankful that He is the judge of our hearts and not mankind. I always have to catch myself from judging others. I try to remind myself of how I would like others to think of me. I believe that if we work harder to be better than we are now, we can truly obtain happiness. I am a "Mormon" (a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints) because I know this Church is true. Every time I read the Book of Mormon, I feel God's love for us. He gave us this Gospel because He loves us. He wants to show us truths. We can learn more about Him and His teachings through the Book of Mormon. The Book of Mormon contains the fulness of the Gospel. If you read the Introduction to the Book of Mormon, you can learn more about it. I encourage everyone to read all of the book. When it says in the introduction to read it with real intent, it means to read it with a desire in your heart to learn. Act on what you learn. When you read, think about what the words can teach you. And if you have any questions, write them down. Pray for an answer to these questions and read more.

How I live my faith

Before the mission: I attended college and worked. I saved money and prepared so that I could serve a mission. I wanted to serve to help people develop happier lives and grow in their faith in Jesus Christ. The Gospel of Jesus Christ has been a great gift to me and my family and I wanted to share this with others and their families. As a missionary I live my faith by striving to follow my Savior's example of service and love. I often study the scriptures to know how to best follow His example and pray often to show my gratitude for what I've been given in my life and show my love of my Father in Heaven and His Son, Jesus Christ. We all have these wonderful tools to help us throughout our lives. Our Father in Heaven loves and knows each of us. He wants to help us. He wants to show us truths. He promises us that if we have any questions about life, He will answer if we simply ask Him. He can answer us through the scriptures and through quiet feelings we receive as we pray. These quiet feelings of peace are often the Holy Ghost speaking to you. Life is not easy for anyone. But God has given us so many tender mercies in our life to support and uplift us. Being a missionary I often see the hardships many people have to go through in their lives. Even I have had some discouragement at times. But once I remember my purpose in life and how I have so many wonderful blessings in my life that I want to share with others, then the discouragement leaves. With a positive attitude, love in my heart, and desire (and acting on this desire) to follow God, I am better able to overcome challenges. I encourage everyone to try this. It takes time but little by little things will progress.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Sara
The Book of Mormon tells me that there is a God. No man could create such a wonderful book. Also, the beautiful mountains, sunsets, beaches, and all other beauties of this earth show us that there is a God. The earth was no mistake or coincidence. Every little thing that happens today is for a reason. Show more Show less
