Hi I'm Sarah

I'm a runner, I love to be outside and spend time with my family, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student and I want to be an Exercise Physiologist and a fitness instructor. I love being active and doing things outside. I play the guitar and I love to sing and I recently started learning how to play the piano. My family is very musical and so we have a lot of fun together doing music. We go to Rest Homes and sing and play various instruments for the people there. We also have what we call "Jam Sessions" where we have one of my brothers in law on the drums, another brother in law and my brother and me on guitar, two of my sisters on the keyboard, and everyone else on the vocals. So we have kind of created a band and we have a lot of fun doing that together.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because being a Mormon gives me purpose in my life. Being a Mormon gives me hope for the future and it brings me happiness that cannot compare to anything else. It gives me a direction to go with my life and it helps me to live a good life. Because I am a Mormon I don't use harmful substances like drugs or alcohol and I have learned that if I don't use these things my life will be really good and I will be able to have a healthy body. God knows that alcohol and drugs will hurt me and that is why he has told us that we should not use them. I am a very active person; I especially love long distance running. Do you think I could run as much as I do if I were doing drugs and drinking alcohol or smoking? I definitely could not do as much with my body if it were not healthy. I am so grateful to have a healthy body so that I can run and do all of the things that I enjoy to do. My body is a gift from God and I know that he wants me to use that gift well and use it to its full potential. I cannot harm the gift that He has given me. God knows everything and he knows me personally. He knows all of us because we are His children. I am a Mormon because I can receive comfort and help from God when I am struggling. God knows what I am going through and He loves me. I am a Mormon because it teaches me how to live a life full of happiness that will last forever.

How I live my faith

Right now I am serving in the England Birmingham Mission. I will be here in England for 18 months. Being on a mission is incredible because I get to share the gospel with people who have never heard of the gospel of Jesus Christ and I have the opportunity to help them to know how they can come unto Christ and receive the most happiness in their life. I know that Heavenly Father is helping people to be found by the missionaries so they can be brought to the knowledge of the truthfulness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Coming unto Christ and being baptized is the most important thing we can do in our lives. It shows our commitment to God and our willingness to follow Him.
