Hi I'm Sara Tripp

I love to laugh. I live simply. I am serving in THE best mission ever! I am a Mormon.

About Me

Hello there, my name is Sara. I graduated with my Bachelors degree as an Interdisciplinary Major with emphasizes on biology, psychology, and physical education. I plan on going to graduate school for Occupational Therapy once I return home from the West Virginia Charleston Mission in 2015. I love missionary work! I love being a missionary! There is nothing else better in this world than sharing the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in its fullness. I am the happiest I have ever been in my life. One of my hobbies is to help people no matter how it is I am doing it. I love to be creative whether it is writing songs, styling hair, making people laugh, or decorating a room. I am a fun, outgoing person who loves to talk and smile. I also love sports and the outdoors! I would describe myself as an outdoorsy kind of girl. I love camping, hiking, four-wheeling, etc. I would choose an activity outdoors over going shopping any day! This is me, and this is who I am! :)

Why I am a Mormon

I choose to be a member of this loving church because it truly makes me happy. Can you believe it?.. something in this world to make someone happy.. always! :) We all have our times in life where we get down and feel like nothing else can help us get on our feet again. Well I KNOW that by turning to our Savior, and kneeling when we no longer can stand, we can be lifted up off of our burdens and continue to walk with one foot in front of the other. By being a Mormon I am hopeful in all things, and I am stronger now than I would be without the knowledge and actions I take by living this gospel. This life is not meant to be easy. It is hard, but you stick to the task until it sticks to you. I become more happy as I live faithful and do what I know our Savior would have us do. By being a member of this church I have not only learned to love my Savior, or others, but I have learned to love myself for who I was, who I am, and who I will become.

How I live my faith

I choose to live what I believe by simply being my happy self, and letting the light of Christ show through my actions. I sometimes think that actions speak louder than our words. I strive daily to be better and better. After all, that is why we are here on this earth. To become like him. People can change, and I love helping others come to know that for themselves. You apply what you learn, and I have learned that through the Atonement of Jesus Christ we can have a new life. Faith is an action. I try to act upon what I believe.
