Hi I'm Sara Lucille Davis

I love pink, Captain America, and running. I'm a redheaded, Saint Petersburg loving, adventure seeking Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Nephi, Utah (yep. I'm a Nephite:). I graduated from Juab High School and attend BYU. I am serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Russia St. Petersburg. From sports to music, books to movies, if it is praiseworthy or good, I seek after it. In high school, I ran cross country and track, sang in Concert Choir, received four Gold Cups in the National Federation of Music Piano Recitals, was NHS President, Senior Class Activities Manager, Spanish Club President, co-founded Globally Proactive Students (a humanitarian/language learning club) in my school, am the Central Region Foreign Language Sterling Scholar, have received my young womanhood medallion (twice) and my honor bee, was a Girl's Nation Nominee, HOBY Ambassador, and have participated in several musicals... just to name a few things. I plan to attend the BYU Jersualem Center and study Hebrew upon returning from a full time mission. I love making people happy and giving everyone a chance to have a voice. I am ecstatic to serve the beautiful Russian people from February of 2015 to September of 2016.

Why I am a Mormon

Growing up in a world where darkness seems to seek vengeance at every turn, I am a Mormon because it is the one light in my life that will never go away. To have the knowledge that my family can be together forever keeps me striving through hard times. I know happily ever after doesn't stop at death do us part. As soon as I find my Prince Charming, my latter day strippling warrior so to speak, I know I will have a happily ever eternity. Through all of my trials, pain, and heartache, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is my rock. Even when I feel all alone in this big world, when it appears no one understands what I am going through, because of my knowledge of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ, I always have someone to lean on. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, and that there is no way the Book of Mormon could have been written by anyone but someone called of God. I know families are forever because of the power of the temples, and I know that Christ came, was resurrected, and will come again. I know that as a Latter Day Saint, it is my job to help the rest of the world understand Christ is our Savior and Redeemer. He saved everyone, no matter who they are. It is up to us to accept His divine role in our lives. I know the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the only true church upon the earth today, the restored gospel of Christ's ministry all those years ago. I know what it means to be a Mormon, a representative of my loving brother and Savior. I know I am a real princess, a daughter of the most powerful being in the universe, sent to this earth with a mission that, through Christ, I know I can accomplish. I know this is the true church with all of my heart, might, mind, and soul. I pray that everyone will have the chance to come to the same knowledge that I have obtained.

How I live my faith

Growing up in rural Utah, living my faith is as easy as riding a bike. At the same time, when time calls, it requires more effort to stand up for what I believe. I served in many callings in my church such as ward organist, positions in the young women leadership, ward music coordinator, and assisted in the planning of stake and ward girl's camp. My faith means everything to me, and I try to share it in everything I do, from writing songs to simply saying hi to others in the hallway. Service is also how I live my faith. The gospel of Jesus Christ is all about loving one another, treating everyone like the brother and sisters we truly are. I have been given so much, it's the least I can do to give back to the world. Accepting everyone as a son and daughter of God make it easy to love them. Though it is hard, and I am far from perfect, this gospel has allowed me to find pure love for anyone and everyone I meet. I am serving an eighteen month mission because I love Christ, and I love the hope and the light it gives to he world. I live my faith by striving to be like Christ. I live my faith by being a light to the dark world around me, hoping that I can brighten someone's day or give proof of Christ's atonement in my life. I live my faith by living with hope.

What are Mormon temples used for?

Sara Lucille Davis
Temples are the bridge between heaven and earth. Here, members of the Church of Jesus Christ enter to make and keep sacred covenants that can further fulfill their destiny and princes and princesses of our Heavenly Father. Temples also give others who were not given the opportunity to learn of the gospel in this life a chance to obtain their ordinances through living members of the church. One of the most sacred ordinances that takes place in the temple is more magical than any fairytale: husband and wife are sealed together for time and all eternity, creating eternal families and eternal beginnings. Because of temples, death does not separate true love: it is simply the next step at fulfilling our divine destinies as heirs to the kingdom of heaven. Show more Show less
