Hi I'm Sara

I love being a wife and a mother, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My husband and I have been married for almost 10 years. Each day, I enjoy the blessing of being home with my three children. I am thankful for my friends and members of my family that bring happiness to me daily.

Why I am a Mormon

Since I was a child, I have been blessed with the opportunity to attend church. My mom and dad always showed their faith by praying with me and acknowledging God's hand in their blessings. I am thankful for their great examples. As I grew, I wanted to be closer to the Lord and learn more about His plan for my life. When introduced to the Book of Mormon, I didn't really have a desire to discover the truthfulness of it. After being taught different lessons by the missionaries, I could feel my heart soften, and a desire to learn more grow within me. As my testimony grew, I decided to be baptized. I began to feel the Spirit more often and happiness became a part of my life like never before. Just when I thought I couldn't be happier and closer to my Father in Heaven, I had a severe car accident which left me in a coma. During that time, the Lord showed me His love in a way that is indescribable. I will be forever thankful for His grace and mercy. My goal is to live as close to His expectations of me so that one day, I can live in His presence.

How I live my faith

Praying with my family each morning and evening gives me the courage to face each day with a hope that "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me". I am able to learn alongside the children that I teach Sunday school lessons to each week. Their eagerness to learn is the reason why I love teaching them. Seeing others of my faith serve also gives me happiness and the desire to do the same. Daily I seek the Lord's love and forgiveness, and I am thankful that He is constantly watching over me.

What do Mormons believe about family?

One of the reasons I converted to Mormonism is the teaching that families can be together forever. "Family members who accept the Atonement of Jesus Christ and follow His example can be together forever through sacred ordinances performed in God’s holy temples. Jesus gave to Peter the power to have things sealed on earth and sealed in heaven (Matthew 16:19). This same sealing power was restored to Joseph Smith. Mormon’s believe that they can be “sealed” or bound together through His power enabling them to live together in eternity." Show more Show less
