Hi I'm Sage

I grew up with a military dad, whose job caused us to travel a lot. I love art and reading. I'm a Mormon

About Me

Hi! I'm Sage and as of February 2018, I will be on a full time mission to Albuquerque New Mexico. I'm very excited to teach, visit with, and teach the people, as well as gain new experiences and grow my own personal testimony of the Gospel. I like to draw, read, write, play and listen to music, I have a little experience filming and editing, I'll try pretty much anything creative or expressive. I like to spoil my ~7 month old kitten, who is just the biggest baby. Martial arts (particularly tae kwon do) are a big passion of mine even though its been a while since I've had an opportunity to take up the sport. Though it isn't my strong suit, baking is fun and I'd like to be able to grow my interest into a skill or even a talent.

Why I am a Mormon

I was blessed to be born into the church but throughout my life have had opportunities to know and learn for myself the truth of the gospel. In following His commandments I can clearly see the blessings and good consequences of my actions. I have seen the example of my parents and those around me and have been able to recognize His love for them. I know that if I continue to live His Gospel, that our Heavenly Father will bless me for my efforts and provide opportunities and help for my future.

How I live my faith

Instead of the usual family ward, I attend the local young single adults' ward, for the which I'm co chair of our activities committee. We're in charge of planning and putting together bigger ward events such as holiday parties, linger longers, and break the fasts. Every Sunday after church we have what we call a "linger longer", there are snacks and the members of the ward are encouraged to visit and get to know each other a bit better. "Break the fasts" are held on the first Sunday of each month, or fast Sunday. Everyone in the ward is invited to have dinner, hosted in the home of one the the bishopric. The committee plans out what food we will for both of these events, responsible for providing for the linger longer and delegating for the break the fast.
