Hi I'm Sarah Powell

I'm from South Jordan Utah. I love theatre, drawing, singing, and being around friends. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love theatre, singing, drawing, reading, and hanging out with my friends. I am currently studying at Brigham Young University, and loving it so much! This has been my first year away from home, and it has been such a great experience for me. College has been challenging, and rewarding! Right now I am studying pre communications and hoping to go into advertising.

Why I am a Mormon

I don't know what I would do without this amazing gospel in my life. It really is so simple, and so amazing! It has influenced every aspect of my life for good; what friends I have, what clothes I wear, what movies I watch, how I treat others, and how I strive to live my life every day. It brings so much peace and joy, as well as a sense of purpose and knowledge of who you really are. I know that this church is true and I'm so grateful for it, and for my loving Heavenly Father and Savior Jesus Christ who have given me everything!

How I live my faith

I have just been called to serve as a missionary, assigned to labor in the Adriatic North mission. If your like me and had no idea where in the world that is, it includes the countries of Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Serbia, and Montenegro. I couldn't be more excited to go serve the Lord for a year and a half, and am counting down the days until I leave! It is slightly intimidating to be sent into another completely foreign country, especially when I have to learn "Croatian, Serbian, and other similar regional dialects." However, I know there is nothing better I could be doing with my life right now and the Lord will bless me as I serve him. With his help, all things are possible!

Who is the Mormon prophet today?

Sarah Powell
The living prophet of the LDS church today is Thomas S. Monson. Just like the prophets of old he receives direct revelation from Heavenly Father, which allows him to lead and guide the Mormon church. I know that President Monson is the true prophet, and that he loves and cares for us and tells us the Lord's will for our lives. He is an amazing man, and he and the rest of the first presidency and apostles truly speak the words of God! Show more Show less
