Hi I'm Sarah

I'm from Utah. I'm one of the many answering the call to serve and share what I've been blessed with since birth. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Sarah-- the 58th most popular first name in the United States. Honestly, I just looked that statistic up and I though it would be closer to 3rd or 4th, but I guess 58th will do. I am a college student. I just received my mission call to serve in Argentina! I've grown up in a large family and can't wait to join my older brother and sister who are already out serving missions. My favorite thing to do is laugh. Making me laugh isn't difficult, but if you are able, then we're already best friends. Aside from laughing, I enjoy hiking, staring at fires, taking naps in the sun, fine literature, AMERICA, and internet memes.

Why I am a Mormon

Many people posting profiles talk about their incredibly extraordinary lives and trials that they overcome through the gospel, but my life is extraordinary in its ordinariness. The gospel is not only for the struggling and the afflicted. It is also for the the blessed. It is for EVERYONE. This gospel gives my ordinary life a purpose. The thing that I treasure most through my faith is the personal connection I have with my Father in Heaven. Through Him I obtain answers to any question, peace, comfort, happiness, courage, strength, and literally anything else that I need. I am a Mormon because that means I am never alone. Though fact after fact supports the truthfulness of this gospel, I know of it's truthfulness in my heart. Through prayer,scripture study, and living the gospel of Jesus Christ, anybody can come to know the truth. I am a Mormon because I know.

How I live my faith

Participating in the Mormon community is one of the most difficult/rewarding things about being a Mormon. This past year, I was called as president of the women's organization (Relief Society) in my young single adult ward. Though it was more work than I ever imagined, this calling gave me the opportunity to serve the Lord and show my love for Him. The moment that everything changed was the realization that God wanted me in that position at that time to serve those women. I had something to offer that no one else could. I still have no idea what that something was, but regardless of the impact it had on others, this calling impacted me most powerfully. I knew that God had given me the divine power to see how He sees each of His children. The indescribable love that I had for these sisters I served completely surpassed any capability of my mortal frame. Being a member of the church of Jesus Christ not only gives me the knowledge of my loving Heavenly Father, but it also gives me direct access to His literal Kingdom here on earth.
