Hi I'm Sarah with an h

I'm a dancer. I'm a seamstress. I'm in advertising. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I graduated from Brigham Young University with a BA in Communications, Advertising Emphasis and a Dance minor. I've been blessed to be part of many musical productions in Utah; University's Theater Department, Hale Center Theatre Orem and West Valley, and the Tuacahn Center for the Arts to name a few. In the midst of my education I decided to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and was called to the California San Diego Mission. When I'm not in school, working, sleeping, or eating, I am either sewing, taking a dance class, or sleeping more.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon. That's how people knew me all growing up. "Sarah the Mormon." I was the only Mormon in my high school graduating class. It was an interesting experience being labeled "the Mormon" throughout school, but I think it only helped me remind myself about the values and beliefs that I stand for amongst my peers. People hardly knew anything about the church, so it gave me the opportunity to share the gospel. I only wished I was better prepared. I knew the basic facts and how to answer the popular questions about drinking, dating, and rated R movies. But I wish I had the principles rooted deeper within me to a point where I invited others to search these truths out for themselves. I think it lied within my own conviction and assurance of the principles and blessings of the gospel. That is why I am so grateful for my mission. My mission helped me realize the reality of the gospel and how a simple invitation to come to church or to hear the message of the restoration. And not only did my mission give me confidence in sharing the gospel, it gave me confidence in my own testimony and purpose on earth. I do have a purpose, as I know that everyone has a divine purpose. I have a testimony that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is Christ's church restored again on the earth with the correct principles and ordinances that allows us to gain a brighter perspective of God's plan for us to return to him again. I have a testimony of the Book of Mormon and that it contains eternal truths that confirm what we have in the Bible. Both records testify of Christ and that he lives. He is our Savior and there is none else that can redeem us from this imperfect world and imperfect state. We are not perfect, but can be perfected through his Atonement. We simply are to do our very best to obey the commands of God and be willing to follow His example.

How I live my faith

I love the youth of the church. I was greatly influenced by my church leaders growing up and I want to provide the same, if not more, experiences of spiritual growth for those I serve, serve amongst, and for my future children. I have served as a teacher and leader of numerous organizations with the Mormon church. All have been priceless experiences where I think I gained more insight and inspiration during teaching situations than those I was addressing. Outside of the church environment and fulfilling my expected responsibilities, I feel that the most important part about being Mormon is living as a Mormon in my day-to-day interactions with people when they aren't expecting anything from you.
