Hi I'm Sister Sarah Smith

I love watching movies, I play the piano, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I graduated from Orem high school in 2012 and that fall started college at Utah Valley University. I am currently taking a leave of absence to serve a mission! I'll be leaving the end of February for the Virginia Richmond Mission. I love music, movies, dancing, reading, and spending time with my family and friends. There are 8 kids in my family and I am the youngest. Everyone else is married with kids already, so i have 23 nieces and nephews! I love my big family, they are all so great!

Why I am a Mormon

Honestly, I was born into the church, so I got baptized when i was 8 years old, and have been a member ever since. I believed in my parents testimonies and my church leaders' as well. As i have kept going to church and learning as much as i can, and experiencing and learning things for myself, I have come to know that this church is true! I am so grateful that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is in my life. This is where happiness is. I know that many other religions have very much truth as well, and that their leaders have been very influential people. But I also know that we have the whole truth, the complete doctrine. We have the Book of Mormon, which truly is ANOTHER testament of Jesus Christ--in the America's. If He visited Jerusalem, why wouldn't He show himself to other areas of the world as well? Also, the Book of Mormon clarifies many unclear teachings from the bible. I know God loves me, and is constantly blessing me for making good choices. I know He truly suffered for my sins and for everyone else that has and ever will live on this earth.

How I live my faith

I do the best that I can to keep my standards up and to keep covenants i've made. I try to be a good example to those in my life. I like to go to institute, i love learning as much as I can about the scriptures and this gospel. I go to church every week and try to go to the temple weekly.
