Hi I'm Sariah

I grew up in Hawaii; I went to Brigham Young University-Hawaii before deciding to serve a full time LDS mission.

About Me

I love reading and movies/tv shows, I love going to midnight premieres but I make it a point to never watch Rated R movies. My favorite book is Pride and Prejudice and currently I love the tv show Once Upon a Time. I live in Hawaii and truly believe it's paradise. I have a big family and am the middle child but a wonderful thing about Hawaii is everyone is family.

Why I am a Mormon

I love the gospel and principles taught in the church. I truly believe that families can be together forever and I know that there is a Heavenly Father that loves me. A concept of the gospel that I particularly love is agency. No one forces you to be a member or to follow the standards and concepts taught, it is all Your choice. I choose to be a member, to follow the modesty rules and to obey the Lords commandments. I know that if you read the Book of Mormon and pray to Heavenly Father with a sincere desire to know, he will answer you.

How I live my faith

I have served in the youth program which is amazing because it gives wholesome yet fun activities to participate in. There are potlucks and dances and conferences that I have helped plan and participate in that are filled with loving memories. I enjoy the LDS Hawaii Temple and it's beauty. There are many service opportunities like beach clean ups and food drives that my friends and I do. Living as a member of the LDS church as a choice everyday, one that I never regret.
