Hi I'm Sarah

I grew up in Utah. I attended USU, am now preparing to serve a mission in Nicaragua, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I left college to go on a mission, but when I return in 18 months, I plan to return to the University and finish my degree in psychology. I enjoy writing, art, and poetry. I love spending time outside doing things such as hiking, camping, riding horses or rock climbing. Spending time with my family and friends is, in my opinion, time well spent.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know without a doubt that this gospel is true. There was a time in my life when the church meant nothing to me. I thought that I was happy. I filled my life with things that I enjoyed, friends that I cherished and made memories I will never forget. It took me a long time to realize that something was missing in my life. I was without the gospel, lost without a testimony, and wondering how it was to make my way back. What I missed most in my life was that feeling of God's undying love. He is our loving Heavenly Father and I know that he loves and cherishes each of us. I decided to serve a full-time mission for the church because I want each person to feel of God's love for them. I know how lonely and dreary life can seem without His love lifting us up in times of trial and sorrow. It can at times be hard to comprehend that God loves us enough to save us from our sins and sorrow. I know that no matter the transgression, through Christ, we are offered a second chance.

How I live my faith

I currently hold a calling teaching young children. The first day of class, as I was bombarded with the shouts and squirms of nine six year-old kids I didn't think that I could handle it. There sweet spirits taught me otherwise. They may be loud and rambunctious but they have true and faithful testimonies that astounded me. For being six, they have a simple and honest knowledge of the gospel. I love teaching the principles of the gospel in their most simple form.
