Hi I'm Sarah

I'm an author. Im a wife and mother. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was raised in Missouri the youngest of five children. I am married to my high school sweetheart who was baptized in our third year of marriage. We were sealed together for time and all eternity a month before our first child was born. Growing up I was always a dreamer who loved to lose myself in the imaginary world of books. Now I am an author of YA paranormal romance novels, and I am a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I was baptized when I was eight. I am a member today because I know it is true. I see the far reaching effects of the gospel of Jesus Christ in my life and the lives of my husband and children. I don't know if I could have made it through the trials I have faced in this life were it not for the peace and assurance that the gospel brings.

How I live my faith

I work with the children at chuch, and am responsible for writing the annual program that they perform each fall. My husband is a school teacher and our family is well known by his students and in our community as being LDS, and I take that into account in my writing. Because although I don't write religious books, I still hold myself and my writing to my standards of living.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

No. I often feel like a bad missionary, because I don't know how many times I've given a stranger a ride (not that I'd avise this to everybody, because it can be dangerous, but I trust the whisperings of the spirit when it tells me to do this), or helped someone on the side of the road by giving them water or money without ever even telling them my name much less that I was a mormon. It just never occurs to me, because I don't do it so I can teach them a lesson. I do it because they need help, and I have the means and ability to help them. I do it because it's the right thing to do regardless of who they are, what church they belong to, or if they go to church at all. Show more Show less

Why is family so important to Mormons?

The family is the basic unit of society, and our children our most precious resource. Humankind cannot survive without children to further the species, and what better place to teach those children to be strong, independant, moral individuals than in the safe and loving envirement of a family.
