Hi I'm Sarah Tyler

I was raised an army brat. I'm an aspiring writer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up all around the world--starting in North Carolina, to Germany, Japan, and ending in Texas. I loved moving from country to country and learning what other cultures are out there. I've developed a deeper appreciation for travelling as I've moved from country to country.. In addition to my interest in what's beyond the borders of America, I've peaked an interest in journalism, and I have a great love for music. I grew up 4th of 5 kids, and I have two beautiful nieces, two handsome nephews and one on the way. I wouldn't trade my family for anything. They are a great strength in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I have felt the gospel bring me closer to my Savior, Jesus Christ. I have read The Book of Mormon, and I have prayed about its truthfulness many times and have felt, for myself, that it is true. Although I grew up in the faith, I haven't always believed in the church, or in God. It wasn't until my sophomore year of high school when I felt the desire to really know for myself if it was true, and I finally asked God. From that moment forward, I have done nothing but believe and bear witness that this is the church of Jesus Christ--the same church He established during His ministry. I have come to know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, and through His divine power, Joseph Smith was granted the ability to translate The Book of Mormon. The only thing that converted me to the gospel was faith and the spirit. My knowledge of the truth of this gospel is not, by any means, a knowledge of intellect, but of the Spirit. Because I had faith and a real desire to know, the Spirit was able to tell me what was right and this is right.

How I live my faith

I'm currently serving a full-time mission for the church. I left my family for eighteen months so I can help teach others about the gospel of Jesus Christ in the Idaho Nampa Mission. Day by day, I go out with another missionary to find those who are searching for the truth.
