Hi I'm Sarah

I am from a college town in Kansas, named after a place in New York and i love nature and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am a senior at BYUH in Inter Cultural Studies with a concentration in Anthropology, i love to dance in my free time and bake delicious treats. My goal is to go to Haiti and assist with a group called Jou Nouvo, which means new day in french. i love to volunteer around my school and community and do what i can. i love gardening and growing fresh veggies and fruits. I am single with no kids. i am very passionate about building peace and helping bring peace and reconciliation to people in conflict all over the world from communities to families.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up in the gospel, my mother is a convert to the church and struggled with her family accepting her decision. I have never had to push my family to accept my faith but have had to struggle with my own desire to stay in the church. i was not fully converted to the church until i was about 18 or 19 and had an amazing friend that reached out to me when no one else would. because of her friendship and faith in me i continued to come to church when i went to college.i continued to have wonderful sisters in church who talked with me and taught me that i came to really love going to church. i didn't realize how much the gospel meant to me until i was not able to go to church for over a month because of trip i was on. i wasn't really able to understand my love for Jesus Christ until i saw others who didn't have it. i realized why i followed the commandments God has given me, because they are to keep me safe and for that i am truly grateful. not everyone is as fortunate as me to have a loving family to support me and love me as i find my own feet, it is a struggle but truly the greatest thing i will ever do in my life, finding the gospel and building my own testimony..

How I live my faith

i try to serve others daily and live as Christ would have me. i try to follow my heart or sense of whats right and help lighten my neighbors burden.

What is the role of the husband and the wife in the family?

Sarah
The purpose of a husband and wife in the family are to raise their children from infancy to be good people. We are simply stewards of the Lords children on this earth, we must love and cherish these wonderful blessings the Lord gives to us and treat them with love and respect. The husband and wife must work together as equal partners to teach and love their children. Children should be taught to love one another, live in a home where they feel safe and are cherished.
