Hi I'm Sara

Born in California, raised in Utah, BYU student. Called to Serve in the Texas Houston Mission. I am a Mormon!

About Me

I grew up in Cedar Hills, Utah, along with my older sister and 5 younger brothers. I love my family more than anything in this world! I am a freshman Brigham Young University- Idaho, majoring in Nursing. After working in the Medical Field for 3 years as a CNA and Medical Assistant, I learned that I have such a love for helping and serving others and I can't imagine myself doing anything else. I am currently serving a 18 month mission in Houston, Texas and will return home in December 2014. I couldn't be more grateful for this amazing blessing and opportunity that I have to teach people about this gospel, the thing that brings me the most happiness in my life!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know it is the only right way to live my life. I know with all my heart that this gospel is true! It brings me more happiness than I can even start to explain. It is a part of who I am. It is through this gospel that I am becoming who Christ wants me to be and knows I can become. I know that the only way we can return to live with our Heavenly Father again is through Jesus Christ and His Atonement. Only through this gospel can we live with our families for eternity. Christ is the light and the way. As I have come to know Him, and developed a personal relationship with Him, I have felt His infinite love for me and His desire for me to become even as He is. This is why I am a Mormon, and this is why I am in Houston. I want everyone to know of God's love for them, and His desire for them to return to live with Him again. I want everyone to experience the same happiness that this gospel gives me every single day.

How I live my faith

I think that the best way to show others what you believe is through your actions! I try to live the gospel of Jesus Christ each day through my example. I live my faith through showing my love for others, & serving them. I strive to be a reflection of Christ by loving as He would love, and serving and He would serve. I live my faith through 'standing as a witness of God at all times, in all things, and in all places'. What I love most about this gospel is the unconditional, Christlike love that everyone has for each other. I am living my faith by devoting my whole time and energy to serve the people of Houston on behalf of my Brother and Savior, Jesus Christ, and by living in a way that will help me to make His attributes a part of who I am.
