Hi I'm Sara Bezdjian

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Above all, I love adventures. Trying new things for me, is better than the best ice cream. Growing up in Salt Lake City, I have been very blessed to have the gospel, education opportunities and other gifts in my life. My dad is Armenian, born in Syria and my mom is American, born in Salt Lake City (her ancestors were from England). I'm the oldest child and I have two siblings—one sister and one brother. I love to travel and live in other countries. I have been very blessed to live in Hawaii, Italy, and Jerusalem. I also had the opportunity to serve a mission in Poland for 18 months. I really like to play roller derby, play soccer, and go hiking. Right now, I'm at the University of Utah as an English major and Economics minor. I have a couple of jobs—one is for an advertising agency and another is being a nanny for three kids.

Why I am a Mormon

Why? Because I am happier when I live according to this faith. There were moments—even years—when I didn't want to live according to God's commandments. But somehow, I knew deep down that I wasn't really happy. I can promise anyone that in this world, a life in accordance with the gospel of Jesus Christ isn't easy—but I promise that it's worth it.

How I live my faith

Every morning, as I get ready for the day, I listen to the Bible or the Book of Mormon on my phone. Then as I take the bus to school, I read about a chapter of the Book of Mormon. To start the day this way gives me peace and I feel the Spirit. This also helps me remember the immense love God has for me. Reading is more meaningful for me when I read with a specific question—usually about something I don't understand or something I'm struggling with or need help with. I see the hand of the Lord in my life often because when I ask for His help, He gives it to me. He doesn't always answer my prayers in the way I expect, but I know that He answers. I try my best to help my fellow brothers and sisters feel the love of God through my actions. I try to act according to the commandments but of course, I'm not perfect. I know that when I make mistakes and I ask my Father in heaven for forgiveness, He's willing to forgive me through the Atonement of His Son, Jesus Christ. Often, it's as I end the day in prayer, that I realize all the many blessings and evidences of my Father in Heaven and His awareness and concern for me.
