Hi I'm Sally

I am the middle child of seven daughters, mother to five, grandma to two and a Financial Aid Administrator.

About Me

I grew up on a ranch in Southern Colorado where I learned to love, work, play, pray and drive a tractor amidst a large extended family. I sometimes find myself longing for the smell of fresh hay or wishing for only one more chance to play Barbies in the window sill with my beautiful sisters. I run a little, walk a lot and eat Mexican food whenever I can! I love the mountains and recognize the work of the Master when I am there. For me, every leaf and rock testify of the divinity of the Savior and stand as indisputable evidence of a loving Father in Heaven. I see so many parallels in the laws that govern our physical world and those that dictate our spiritual growth and well-being. Is it any wonder that we are here!

Why I am a Mormon

My own children are a source of joy and challenge each day. I have lamented the absence of an instruction manual at each child’s birth and found the experience of parenting teenagers to be an odd mix of ecstasy and raw fear. As I read and understand the scriptures, I recognize the admonition as good parenting given by a loving Father; I have come to realize that I’ve had the manual all along. My recent studies have helped me to understand more about the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ and I know that I through Him I have been given a miraculous gift.

How I live my faith

I live my religion by trying every day. I have failed and others have failed me. I choose to forgive them and myself and get up the next day and try again. Though it’s not easy, I strive to find the lesson in my personal trials. I know that there is always something to learn and positive results can come from EVERY situation. I have been humbled by the reality that this knowledge comes in the Lord’s own due time rather than in accordance with my personal timeline. I am learning that real peace comes by placing trust in the arm of God and hushing my demands. I am thankful for the people in my life that have questioned my beliefs and the experiences that have given me the motivation to learn more, live better, and articulate my convictions.
