Hi I'm Sarah Anderson

I love to sing, act, and teach. I graduated from BYU-Idaho in Music Education with a Choral Emphasis. I am a Mormon.

About Me

For as long as I can remember music has been a big part of my life. I love listening to it as well as performing it. I recently graduated from BYU-Idaho where I studied Music Education. This is where my testimony of music and how it can connect to everybody really began.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was fourteen I had a lot of doubts about who I was, what my purpose was here, if I even mattered, and so on. I felt alone and was not quite sure where to turn for help. My Mom and Dad noticed a change in my demeanor and asked if I prayed to God about it. I do not think I had ever sincerely prayed to God before that day. I got down on my knees and asked if I had purpose, if I mattered, and if anybody really cared. It was in that moment that I learned my true potential; I am a daughter of God. Not only that, but God loves me. When I had gained my testimony about God's love for me, it was easier to follow Him. I know that God wants me to be happy. I go through trials, just like everybody else. But, when I walk with God during those trials it is easier. I continue to follow His gospel because of the peace, comfort, and joy it brings to me.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as the Ward choir director and it has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I enjoying teaching people that, when you are singing praises to God, it does not matter the quality of your voice. All that matters is that it is YOUR voice. In D&C 25:12 it says: "For my soul delighteth in the song of the heart; yea, the song of the righteous is a prayer unto me, and it shall be answered with a blessing upon their heads." It isn't about the quality of your voice. All that matters is that it is YOUR voice.
