Hi I'm Sarah White

I am from the Seattle, Washington area. And I am serving a mission in Jackson Mississippi! And...I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am a junior in college, I have been at Snow college in the middle of Utah. But my heart is in Washington! I plan on dying while it drizzles rain outside my window. I honestly have no idea what I want to do with my life...Except photography. I do not know if I want to do it full time, but I cannot live without acess to a dark room. I LOVE COMEDY! If I could work on SNL I would die from joy! (SNL is not in the plan for me though) I have been doing Improv and comedic acting since I was a kid. In Seattle we call it theatre sports, I may or may not have lettered in Theatre sports... And Footloose. As in the movie with Kevin Bacon. It is part of who I am.

Why I am a Mormon

It is very easy to feel like a religous belief is contrived or is of a lower quaility somehow when it is not based off of an acedemic knowladge of the books of the religion or its history. I do not have a perfect knowledge of all things that are apart of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. My testimony and knowledge of the truth of this gospel have come almost exsclusivley from trial and error! I have not always lived my faith, there was a time in my life where I was blinded things I had let leak into my life. But when I hit rick bottom, as they say "I realized Christ was my rock." And when I came to that point, I decided I never wanted to feel that way again. Because of the teachings of my savior and the prophet of the church Thomas S. Monson (which are both teachings of gods will) the life I now live has joy. It is such a simple word but it holds so much meaning and power. I have joy because I have no shame. (Okay well I have shame when I mess up...WHICH IS SO OFTEN) The answer to why I am Mormon will change often. But right now it is because of joy, and the joy comes because of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

How I live my faith

I am a missionary! I study and teach the gospel of Jesus Christ from sun up to sun down! And I do everything I can to follow my savior. I do my best to follow what Jesus taught on the sermon on the mount, that when you find a pearl of great price you sell all that you have and go and buy it!

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

Sarah White
While we are on earth we are physically separated from our Heavenly Father, how AMAZING that he chose his daughters to care for his children while they are separated from Him! It comes down to a simple phrase "equal but different." It can be easy to label the different roles for women and men, stating one is greater or more powerful. But man and women were put on earth to be equal partners and I have never been taught anything that contradicts that. Show more Show less
