Hi I'm Sarah

I grew up in Colorado. I want to get my medical degree and travel, helping with humanitarian efforts. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I go to college at Brigham Young University- Idaho, with a current major in Biology. I am/will be serving a mission in San Juan Puerto Rico, starting November 20th, 2013. I come from a blended family with eight other children. I want to be a doctor, and help people who cannot afford it. It has always been an ambition of mine to travel around the world, but helping people is what really speaks to me.

Why I am a Mormon

While I grew up in a very active LDS family, I didn't really, deeply believe it to be true until I graduated from high school. I had left to stay with my older sister for a while, and I reached a point where I just didn't want to be around people. And my heart was sad, for reasons I couldn't comprehend. But I inexplicably prayed to feel peace and truth one day, and I got it. Like a great warm hug enveloping me. And I felt loved. It took me a bit to realize that love I felt was that of my Savior and Heavenly Father. But I never forgot that feeling. When I felt utterly alone, He was there supporting and comforting me.

How I live my faith

I teach in my home ward every Sunday. I am in charge of the class of five to six year olds, and there is not much that I love more than that. I genuinely love my students, and its a grerat joy to me to watch their faces as they begin to understand important concepts, like how important and wonderful they themselves are. At school, I was on multiple service committees, and got to spend my time helping other people my age, whether it be emotionally or physically.

What do Mormons believe about family?

We believe that everything is centered around families. We believe they should get the chance to be together not just "til' death do us part" but for time and all eternity. We believe that we will know each other, and still love each other, our ancestors and our posterity in the next life. Show more Show less
