Hi I'm Sarah Blakely

I've always been a member and I have always had Christ.

About Me

I was born and raised in Bountiful, Utah, just outside of Salt Lake City. I've had many amazing opportunities given to me in my life. I'm 19 years old, and currently attend BYU-Idaho. I play percussion and had the opportunity to tour Europe.

Why I am a Mormon

This church has always been there for me. If I am ever feeling alone or desperate, I can always pray, and have a conversation with God. That is an experience I have treasured my entire life. There is also the community of a ward family, and there is a very good reason they call it a family, because you have a support system, and people who care about you. I have received dinners when parents were sick, an internship in a neighbour's company, too many mentors to count, best friends, and responsibility that made me grow as an individual both mentally and spiritually.

How I live my faith

I have always been able to rely on my faith in my life. I consider it an essential part of who I am today. I have such appreciation for how much the atonement of Jesus Christ can change and transform a broken life into a life with meaning and purpose. I am constantly on my knees praying, seeking guidance, instruction, and sometimes just someone to listen, and God is the best listener. With the Holy Ghost to guide and inspire me, almost every decision is run through a spiritual channel that assures me I am making the right choice.
