Hi I'm Sara

I grew up in California, I am serving a mission in Leeds, England, and I like to sing and play volleyball. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a small town in California with my mom and dad and three younger brothers. I love to play volleyball and I love to sing. I love anything that has to do with being outdoors. I love the hot weather, and hate the cold. I could spend all day every day at the beach :) I am currently serving a full time mission in the England Leeds Mission. I love being able to share the gospel, and serve Heavenly Father to the best of my ability.

Why I am a Mormon

When you are being taught the gospel, whether from a young age or as a convert, you are told to find out for yourself whether these things are true. I am a Mormon because I have found out for myself. I have asked Heavenly Father if this is the true church, and through the Holy Ghost he has confirmed it to me. I am Mormon because I find a huge amount of joy in living the gospel. I know that when I feel discouraged, or my trials seem too hard, I can ask for those burdens to be lightened because of the sacrifice and atonement of the Savior Jesus Christ. I am a Mormon because I know that my Heavenly Father loves me and wants whats best for me, and I know that this is his church.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by all the standard ways. I study my scriptures everyday, and I pray to my Heavenly Father often, and I attend all my church meetings. I participate in church activities, and I help plan events. But the real way I live my faith is by being an example of Christ. There are not very many members of the church in the area I live in, and most of my friends are not member of my church. Their standards are different than mine are. I live my faith by standing up for what I believe in, not lowering my standards, and by sharing what I know with my friends. And I currently live my faith by serving a mission, serving others, and trying to share the gospel with everyone I meet.
