Hi I'm Sarah

I eat like a rabbit. I love rockclimbing and learning people's stories. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am second oldest of six kids; fours boys and two girls. I spent my childhood running through creek beds, catching potato bugs and trying to make everything my own private getaway. After sixteen years of forced piano torture, I finally learned to love it and play and sing all the time. I sing to every song with lyrics, whether I know it or not, and love all types of music even country. I'm in love with the outdoors. I love hiking, camping, rock climbing and watching the stars. I love long drives through the canyon, walking barefoot through the grass and reading books under trees. I love fresh air, fluffy clouds and mountains. I really enjoy eating fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and ice cream in any season. After growing up 18 years in the same town, I finally left to work on growing up and attend college. I am studying Special Education with a Severe emphasis and want to get a Masters in psychiatric nurse practitioning. My dream is to own my own counseling practice with a nutritional therapy emphasis, be a mother of 8 and see the world.

Why I am a Mormon

I have chosen to be a Mormon because it makes me happy. Being a Mormon is a way of life and is the way of life that is most fulfilling. I have purpose, I have a place, and I have an understanding of my potential. It helps me to keep a correct perspective and avoid the things of the world that may drag me down and keep me from going where I want to and doing what I want to. I am a better sister, a better daughter and a better friend. I can find answers to my questions as I seek them out and find joy each day as I learn and grow. I suffer from anxiety-depressive disorder and on those days when I can't take anymore I pray and search and I find that peace; a peace I haven't been able to find anywhere else in the world. Being a member of the Church doesn't solve my problems or take them away, but it does give me added strength, courage and determination to endure to the end in Christ. It's the best thing that ever happened to me.

How I live my faith

I have served in many leadership positions starting when I was 12 in the Young Women's organization helping my other sisters come to Church and remain active. Since I've turned 18, I've had many different responsibilities, all different which allow me to serve and bring people closer to their Savior Jesus Christ. I was able to help with Church services in the state mental hospital and to have gospel study groups with the patients on Monday nights and that I loved. I loved serving people who needed their Savior and recognized their dependence on Him. I have served as a gospel study coordinator, as a teacher and as a support to the other leaders in my congregation. Mostly, I strive to live my faith everyday whether in or out of the Church building. I work hard to make my actions consistent with my professed beliefs and I often think to myself "What would Jesus do?". I look for opportunities to serve those around me. I strive to be a good friend to those I love and to love those I don't love yet. I try to help my family members as much as I can and bring them joy rather than grief. I strive daily to dedicate my life to my God and King through daily prayer, scripture study and service to my fellowmen. And when I mess up, I repent and the next day I strive to do better. It's not that I am perfect by any means, but everyday I try to remember what Jesus Christ did for me and be a little bit better today than I was the day before.
