Hi I'm Sariah Howell

I’m a Michigander. I'm love my Heavenly Father. I’m a Sister Missionary. I’m a Mormon!

About Me

I'm on my mission right now in Salt Lake City Utah. Missionary work is never easy, but I have never felt closer to God since starting my mission. I have really come to know that each person here on the Earth really are a son or daughter of God. Being on a mission is so worth it! I am number 3, Technically 4, of a family of 8 children. I really love my unique family and hope to always be able to be with them in this life and the next. Eternal families is really one of the greatest promises of our Heavenly Father. Since we are all a part of His family, He wants us to come back to him with our Earthly families. I know Jesus Christ has made that all possible for us to return to our Home in Heaven.

Why I am a Mormon

I know The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the true Church of God and I know that God will make it so I'm never alone. We look out for each other and I love Relief Society. I was reased in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, but have found my own testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ by searching the scriptures and by praying for myself and doing Moroni's challenge in Moroni chapter 10.

How I live my faith

Everyday I do my best to live as if Jesus could just walk into my home or where ever I am at and I want to feel 'not ashamed of being in His presence.' I also like to serve those around me and want to help where I can. I love being the type of person people can depend on. Right now I am serving my mission to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ so people can have Joy and Happiness in their lives and their families.

What is the Word of Wisdom that Mormons talk about?

Sariah Howell
Just as the Children of Israel had their health code from the Lord given to Moses, The Lord has given us a health code today. It's called the Word of Wisdom and tells us of five things we should never take part of (tobacco, alcohol, coffee, tea, and illegal drugs). Then He tells us to be smart, cause He gave us a brain, to be mindful of what we can and cannot eat. For example, I have to be careful of what I eat and take or else I will get horrible headaches. My brother has to be careful not to eat wheat, or else he'll get super sick. So his personal word of wisdom is different then my personal word of wisdom. So, It's just to help us stay healthy and to be clean in the sight of the Lord. Our bodies are special gifts from God and He just asks us to take care of them. Show more Show less
