Hi I'm Sarah Price

I am a student in college. I am a soccer player. I am a daughter/sister. I am happy. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a student at Brigham Young University. I have played soccer my whole life. I love to spend time outside whether it is hiking, climbing, playing sports, or even just reading. I love to travel and learn about different places and cultures. I love spending time with my family and friends!

Why I am a Mormon

Throughout my life I have been blessed with a family, home, and the gospel along with so many other blessings the Lord has given me. However, I still have faced my own trials and struggles, just as everyone must. Unexpected injuries, loss of a loved one, and other hardships have found me, but because of the gospel, I realize these are blessings too. Whenever we pass through struggles, whatever they may be, we can know that our Savior suffered for these pains as well, knows how we are feeling, and wants to help us. We can pray to our Heavenly Father for help, find peace and comfort in the words of the scriptures and of the prophet and apostles, and even ask for a priesthood blessing. Because of the gospel, I know that every trial we are given is an opportunity to grow and learn something we could not have learned any other way. Some of my friends and family have already passed away, including my brother who died in infancy, but because of the gospel I know I will see them all again and that families can live together forever. That is why I am a Mormon. I know this gospel is real and that God has given us everything in this life to bless us, and that we can live with Him again. I know that we have a living prophet, President Thomas S. Monson, to guide us today. I know the Book of Mormon is true. I know that because of Jesus Christ, we can all repent and live with our Heavenly Father again, as well as our families. I know this gospel is true and that God loves every one of us.

How I live my faith

This past year I was called as a visiting teacher for two girls in my ward: Hayley and Danielle. Each month me and my roommate Kristen visited these girls, taught them a gospel message, and checked to see if we could do anything to help them. We also regularly checked up on them throughout the month, again to see if we could help them at all. Although this seems like I simple thing to do, I believe it is exactly what the Savior would have me do. With visiting teaching, no sister in the ward can go unnoticed. Throughout the year these amazing girls went through a lot of challenges such as surgery, loss of a loved one, health challenges, and struggles in school. They could have felt alone in their trials, but because we went to check up on them so regularly, we became friends and they were able to confide in us so we could help support them. I am grateful for this opportunity I have to serve these girls and my Savior. I know our Heavenly Father and Savior want us to look out for each other, and this is one of the ways They have asked us to do so.
