Hi I'm Sarah

I grew up in Utah and attended the University of Utah (go UTES!!) I am a stay-at-home mother of three. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I keep very busy with my three children. I love to help them with their homework and just spend time with them. Being a mom is the best job I've ever had. On the weekends we love to spend time as a family doing all sorts of things from spending time outdoors to catching a movie. When I have a little time off from being "Mom" I love to blog, crochet, read, run, bake and make sure everything is organized.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member all my life. During my school years I was invited to attend other churches with friends and I loved going with them so I could see what else was out there. Each time I left their services feeling as if something was missing. Although I lived the gospel principles daily, it wasn't until I was a junior in high school that I gained a true testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ for myself. The Book of Mormon is a powerful testament of Christ. If you will read it diligently and pray to know that it is true you will receive an answer. I did this and suddenly everything in my life made sense and has ever since. This is the true gospel and I am a better person each day by living its teachings and principles.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by following one simple saying I have loved ever since my Young Women leader introduced it to me so long ago - "Always live your life so that those who don't know the Savior will want to know Him because they know you." The Savior is very important to me. He is my best friend and I want others to get to know him as well. It is not always easy finding the good in things, but it is there if you look hard enough. The scriptures tell us "Men are that they might have joy." President Monson said, "Accentuate the positive. Eliminate the negative." Those are great words to live by. Put a smile on your face and light that is in you will shine. Others will be drawn to it. Serve others and make their day a little better. Be an example of Jesus in all that you do. I have the privilege of working with the three-year-olds at church and they are the best example of the simpleness of the gospel of Jesus Christ. They teach me weekly to be kind to everyone, follow the prophet, and love my neighbor. My favorite song is "If The Savior Stood Beside Me" because it gently reminds me that though I cannot see Him there, he is always with me.

What is the role of the husband and the wife in the family?

A husband and wife need to work together to make sure the home runs smoothly and that the children feel loved and safe. There are no set roles or responsibilities, only team work. Show more Show less
