Hi I'm Sarah

I'm a scientist, artist, and traveler. I'm a loving daughter and sister, and a Latter-day Saint.

About Me

I have moved several times in my life, which I believe is the reason why I love to travel. One of the goals that I have is to visit every continent, even Antarctica. I love to learn and apply what I have learned to my life. I love learning about many subjects namely science, health and art. I'm in college currently studying advertising and marketing. The world fascinates me and I love learning and seeing how smoothly science and religion blend together and that one doesn't make sense without the other. I've returned from an 18 month mission and seeing the gospel of Jesus Christ spread around the world strengthens my testimony and helps me understand that the Lord knows each of us individually.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe that this church is Jesus Christ's ministry restored upon the earth once again. I have grown up in this church but there comes a time where every person has to accept the gospel for themselves. Everyone has to be converted into the gospel, no one can be forced into it; us as members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are here to spread the message of Jesus Christ and to invite everyone to follow Him and keep his commandments so that we can return to live with Him and our Father in Heaven, and our families for time and all eternity. What I love about this gospel is that it explains where we came from, why we are here on earth, and where we will go after we die. I feel comforted that I know that this life is not the end and that I will be even happier after I die because I will be with the people I know and love. I know that we all go through trials but I also know that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ would never give us something that we couldn't handle and with their help we will be able to over come all things and that we can lean on them for help, guidance, and comfort. This gospel brings me joy and peace, and I can not imagine my life without it. That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving and loving the people around me. To me one of the most important things to understand about the gospel and life is that you need to love one another in order to feel and be blessed by the pure love of Christ. While serving others and learning about their past you develop a love for them that you can't describe and for a brief moment you get a small glimpse of how much Heavenly Father loves His children. Jesus Christ loves every single person on the earth, if we follow his example and love and serve each other we will come learn more about Him and our Heavenly Father. The small acts of love and service build up our personal relationship with God, this is how I live my faith.
