Hi I'm Sarah

I'm curious, a nature lover, torn between art and science, a Francophile, an idealist, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I have lived in several beautiful places. From the moist Northern Coast California redwood forest to the dry red rock dessert Moab, UT. I have a B.S. in health science with an emphasis in public health and a minor in humanities. In the past, I was an AmeriCorps VISTA for a year working at a Family Crisis Resource Center. I strive to be an empowered bystander. I love reading dialogues (aka plays). Piano and running are my outlet for stress and when I need to just think. I am a big advocate for volunteerism. Currently, I'm preparing to serve a French speaking mission in the Canada Montréal mission! I am constantly trying to developed more courage and charity (the pure love of Christ).

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because the gospel of Jesus Christ encourages me to serve others and to focus on important truths and family. The gospel of Jesus Christ allows me to repent and change. I know that every soul is great in the sight of God and that He loves all of us. I know that prayer is real. I know He listens and answers us. I believe in personal revelation. The Bible and The Book of Mormon are both witnesses that Jesus Christ is the Savior and the Son of God. He is the gospel in flesh, the Prince of Peace who has paved a way for us to return to our Heavenly Father. He is the light of the world and the giver of hope. His church is restored on the earth with apostles, a living prophet, and temples as like in time of Old. “Then pealed the bells more loud and deep: ‘God is not dead nor doth he sleep’”!!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending church where the sacrament is administered which allows me to reflect on Christ and renew my baptismal covenants. I strive to build stronger relationships with my family and to find opportunities to serve others in the community, at home, and in the church. "When ye are in the service of your fellow beings ye are only in the service of your God" (Mosiah 2:17)
