Hi I'm Sarah Portune

I live in Washington, a junior in high school, I taught my self how to play the piano, I am a Mormon

About Me

I am a junior in high school. I show rabbits with my sister (mini Rex and English lops) I love to play soccer and volley ball. Love to hang out with my friends. I hope to when i grow up become a vet for the military or just be one in general. I love the color navy blue. I have been a Mormon all my life and i plan on being one for the rest of my life :D

Why I am a Mormon

I feel happy. When i go to church and youth group you get this joy inside of you that you cant really get any where else...i cant really explain it. The people there are amazing! I love going to church on sundays becuase when i go you get this sense of peace in your mind that sometimes you just need. You get to take a brake from the world. I have made some good life long friends there and i just love it! I know it is true. I am Mormon because i love being happy and because i believe what i am learning to be true.

How I live my faith

I go to young woman's every sunday as long with church, and youth group on wensdays. Every night before i go to bed i read the Book of Mormon. I love to help out with the little kids in Primary. Love to babysit the children in the word wile there parents go off to the temple! I work on Personal Progress...it is a thing kinda like what the boy scouts do but for girls.

How do I become a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon Church)?

Sarah Portune
Get in contact with the missionary's and have lessons with them. Find a meeting time on sunday that works for you. Come to church learn some of things we teach read the book of Mormon and when you think you re ready you can ask the missionary's about getting you baptized Show more Show less

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

Sarah Portune
Men and woman are equal. We all have our different responsibility's in the church but we are all treated the same. We both are apart of gods plan and you cant have one with out the other. Woman can do just as much as men can. We are taught that when we have kids that the children should be raised by a husband and a wife. The mans job in taking care of the kid is just as important as the womans Show more Show less

To what do you attribute the growth of the Church?

Sarah Portune
I dress modestly to school and any where i go. I dont swear, i love by the standers that are presented to us through the bible and book of Mormon. I am a happy person i be a friend to anyone and everyone. I answer people questions to my best of my ability, i invite none member friends to church and to mutual so they can see how much fun we have! Every day i try my hardest to live the standards of the lord and i just be a good example to those around me. Show more Show less
