Hi I'm Savanah McGrath

I've lived in Utah my whole life, I love sports, hiking, playing the violin, and hanging with friends and family. I'm a mormon.

About Me

Growing up, I've always been involved in two things. 1- SPORTS and 2- playing the violin. My parents always wanted me involved in something while growing up and violin and soccer quickly became my favorite. I love both things and practiced soccer and violin almost on a daily basis. Other than that, I love hiking with my friends and being around people that I love.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have a testimony that Christ lives (!) and that He died for each and every one of us. I know that with the help of my Savior, I can accomplish hard things and be comforted in times of sadness. I know that there is a plan for me in this life- there is a plan for EVERYONE! Isn't it comforting to know there is an individual plan for each and every person in this world? I am a Mormon because this faith has given me purpose and direction in my life! Being a part of this church has brought me so much HAPPINESS and PEACE in my life and I testify that it is the true gospel, set by Jesus Christ and our Heavenly Father, on this earth.

How I live my faith

Though I have not had very many callings yet in my life, all the ones I have had have been great. When I was younger, I was called to be in charge of the leadership of the 12-14 year old class I was in. This was fun for me because I really got to know everyone in that class much better. Later when I moved away from home, my calling was to be a leader for our "family" in my ward. Let me explain, in our religion, we are encouraged to have Family Home Evening. This is where one night a week, the family gets together and participates in an activity. As I moved away from home, there were many other people who had done the same and it was the object of our bishop to organize us into makeshift families so we could feel like we belonged somewhere and get to know other people. Perhaps my favorite calling so far is the one I received very recently. I have been called to be a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I get to preach the truth and help others come unto Christ every day for 18 months! How lucky am I?
