Hi I'm Sara

I live in Northern Vermont. I love School, Family and the Gospel And I am an LDS member.

About Me

I am the youngest of six kids, I have three brothers and two sisters that love me. My dad is a bus driver and my mom is a substitute when she is not at home either babysitting or being a stay at home mom. I am now a sophomore in high school, my older sister is a junior and we are 361 days apart. My family thinks I can sing and I like to. The church has been a part of me ever since i was born. I attend a small branch where most of us are related somehow. I am the Mia Maid class president and I love being a member of this branch.

Why I am a Mormon

I am an LDS member because I grew up in the church. But that is not the only reason once you have a testimony you can't just get rid of it, you can deny it but it will never leave you. That is why I am A Mormon.

How I live my faith

How do I live MY Faith? That is an interesting question I believe that I show my faith through my actions. I am never trying to make people think that us LDS members are bad people because we aren't. In a church movie Joseph tells a woman that serving is pretty much our religion. I agree, by doing service we show that we are living our faith. So my words and actions are how I live my faith I don't JUST go to church and play the part while at church. I go to church and the next day at school I don't stop following the standards.

Why was a Restoration of the Gospel needed? Haven’t we always had the Bible?

Sara
The Restoration of the Gospel was needed because there was a time where the Gospel wasn't on the earth. There needed to be a person to restore it through Heavenly Father's Hand. After Christ was crucified and his apostles had died the true church was no longer on the earth. so when a young boy named Joseph Smith wanted to know what church to join he read in the Bible James 1:5 "If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him." He decided to ask of God as the scripture said. When he did he had a vision of Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. They told him to join none of the local churches or any church, that the true church had not yet been restored. Show more Show less
