Hi I'm Sarah

I'm a Mormon mommy.

About Me

I'm a wife to a (practically) perfect husband and a mommy to three (practically) perfect kids. After serving a mission and meeting my husband, I graduated from college and pursued a career as a reporter and anchor for NBC. I traded in my microphone and story script for a pacifier and diaper wipes. And I have loved every minute of being a stay at home mom... okay maybe I could have done without a few dirty diapers and temper tantrums... but I try really hard to keep a positive attitude and outlook on life and cherish these moments I have with my husband and young kids. As a family we love to travel, eat good food and be outside.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were introduced to the church while they were dating. They had thought about getting married and felt very strongly that by joining the church they would bring great blessings to their lives and their future family. They joined the church soon after. They were and continue to be great examples of Christian discipleship to me and my siblings. It was easy for me to make good decisions in life because they were so supportive of the teachings of Christ in our home. During my first year in college I decided that I wanted to serve a mission. It was during that time of preparation for a mission I came to understand more fully the gospel teachings that lay before me my whole life. As a missionary, I was able to teach that gospel to many people and share with them the joy and happiness that I have because of it. There are decisions and trials in all of our lives, the knowledge I have gained of Jesus Christ has helped me to maintain faith and hope towards the future in dealing with those decisions and trials. I find such peace knowing I am a daughter of God and that He loves me and that He has a plan for me.

How I live my faith

I love to serve in the church and find it a very fulfilling part of my life. I was recently able to organize and direct an event that brought in more than one thousand people from our community. It was such a blessing to do that because those people were able to understand a little bit more about our beliefs. As I serve in the church, I am able to develop talents and skills I may not have ever had the opportunity to do. Through organizing this event I was able to discover an interest I have, that I could one day pursue as a career, I never would have thought of it had I not served in the church. I try really hard to make sure that my priorities are in order, that my family is taken care of, that I am reading my scriptures and praying daily and that I am developing my talents. It's sometimes a struggle with three young kids, but I do my best and hopefully it will be good enough.
