Hi I'm Sasha

I grew up in Nampa Idaho. I am currently serving a mission in Queretaro, Mexico. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Nampa, but I also lived in Kenai, Alaska for 5 years...moved back to Idaho and I'm going to school at BYU-Idaho. I love the snow, but prefer the heat...and the beach! I am athletic. I played basketball, ran track and x-country, and I swim. I have been playing sports all my life. I am also musical. I love to sing and play guitar and piano. I love going to concerts. I also love to do anything that is outdoors. One of my favorite things to do is to go horseback riding. I absolutely love to travel and see the world and different cultures. I love kids. I am a huge family person and love spending time with my family. And I love church.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints my whole life. As I have grown to know and understand the blessings that come from obeying the commandments that have been given to us, I have learned for myself how being a part of this church is a huge blessing in my life. The guidelines that are given to us are here to help us be the best that we can and to become like our Savior Jesus Christ. I have come to know for myself that this is the true church on the earth today by living the docrine and principles taught, reading the book of mormon, and praying to know if it's true. I have received powerful answers and I have such a strong testimony that God hears and answeres my prayers. Being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has helped me overcome many trials in my life because I know that God is always here for me to help me through. I'm grateful for the faith that I have gained and the knowledge that I have that I will be saved and can be with my Heavenly Father again.

How I live my faith

I am serving a full time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints. Growing up, I have always tried my best to stick to the standards that I have learned by my parents and by going to church. One of the gratest ways I live my faith is by being an example. It was so much easier growing up with the faith that I had and that I always had a firm testimony. I have been involved in many youth organizations that I have participated in and have helped lead. I love working with the church and helping others come to know and love our Savior Jesus Christ and help them become more like Him.
