Hi I'm Sara Jager

I'm one of 13 kids. I started College at 16. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've been very blessed to be raised in the church by a mother and a father who have been examples to me of what it means to be a righteous child of God. I know no greater joy than being of service to others and helping others through difficult times. I read, write, hike, explore, travel, self educate, ride horses, compete in sports, dance, debate, go on adventures, enjoy meeting new people, love to laugh and I'm a Mormon :)

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church but after moving out and going to college I began to drift away. I stopped attending my meetings and chose instead to focus on friends and "fun." I still went to church occasionally and FHE but was not very involved. Over time I started to feel unsatisfied with my life and realized that I didn't have any feeling of accomplishment or fulfillment. I ignored this feeling for a very long time saying that I was happy. I had a successful job, lots of friends who I went out with all the time, people that wanted to be like me and on the road to academic success. But I still felt like something was missing. My brother realized this and put in extra effort to invite me to church. He'd make sure to call me often and let me know what the church activities were and would pick me up so I could attend. I enjoyed the extra activities that I did with the ward and like the people but still found that I felt like I was lacking something in my life. There was a Young Singles Adult conference that I was invited to. At first I was uninterested and considered leaving. It felt like every other meeting that I'd ever been to and I didn't want to spend a whole weekend listening to people talk about scriptures. Right before I was about to leave a few people from my ward that I'd never really gotten to know came up to me and started talking to me. They made me feel incredibly welcome and after awhile I really began to enjoy myself and agreed to stay. The next day I said my morning prayers for the first time in along time and prayed about some concerns that I'd had about work, school and friends. There was a variety of classes being held that day and the one class I attended addressed all my concerns. For the first time in a long time I felt the spirit. It touched my heart and I knew without a doubt that Heavenly Father personally knew me, that he loved me with all his heart and he wanted me to succeed. I am now preparing to leave on a mission.

How I live my faith

I love being active and involved in my ward, All the activities, conferences and meetings we have are always enjoyable. I always love it when strangers choose to come and getting to know them and become friends. As a ward missionary I try very hard to make sure everyone feels comfortable and welcome. Not just non members or visitors but also the inactive/active members. We love all the people that choose to come and know that life can feel very lonely at times and want everyone to feel the support and love that comes from living the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I am currently Serving in the Little Rock Arkansas Mission, in Memphis TN
