Hi I'm Sarah

I'm an only child. I like to teach. I like to listen. I love laughing until I can't breathe. I'm a convert and a Mormon.

About Me

I'm an only child. I was born and raised in Utah. I love to write poetry, sing, play the piano, and travel. I participated in all the choirs in my church and high school. I love to hike anywhere I can, especially in Yellowstone National Park. Nature is where I can really feel close to God, Jesus Christ, and others. I am a student, studying to become a biology/chemistry teacher. I am preparing to serve an LDS mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I've always known that God existed. I just didn't know how close He had always been to me. In high school, I visited churches of many Christian faiths, Presbyterian, Catholic, Baptist, Methodist, and Non-Denominational. Although the people were warm and friendly, nothing "clicked" and it felt as though something was missing. When I was in 8th grade a close friend invited me to the LDS youth Halloween party. I hesitantly agreed to go but it ended up being really fun. I continued to go because for the first time in my life I'd found the feeling I had been searching for. I continued to attend LDS youth activities for two years, while continually questioning how or if I would ever get baptized. In the summer of '08, after many months of torment as to whether being baptized was the right thing for me and my relationship with my family, I decided to attend an LDS girls camp, while quietly pondering I looked up into the clear blue sky and a feeling of immense comfort completely washed over me. It was right then that I knew I was to be baptized and that my Heavenly Father had plans bigger for me than I knew. The missing piece to my life was finally in place. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints changed my life. It made me feel important, loved, cherished, and most of all close to my Savior and Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by praying each day to know how to better serve the people around me, by never losing hope in seemingly impossible desires, by only doing the things I know will bring me lasting happiness, and by reading the Book of Mormon to find the answers to the deepest questions of my heart.
