Hi I'm Sage Libbey

I am from the North Bay Area California, a free spirit hippy, a missionary, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I was raised in the Bay Area, just 45 miles north of San Francisco. Here there are few members, I was raised to attend church and learn in my sunday school classes, but at home, my parents never really told me what they believed. I was left to find things for my own. In high school, I claim I was no member of the church because I was the only girl in my school that was, I was teased and mocked if I ever mentioned it, so I left the title and the church behind. I went on for most those years flowing with my friends and not exactly making the best choices. The one thing I did hold on to was attending Girls Camp every summer. My last year I was pulled aside and just encouraged that I should just try going to church again. I did and senior year decided to look into the gospel more. I found out about BYU-Hawaii and knew that was the only place for me. I was accepted and everyday at school I grew to know and love the gospel I had chosen to be surrounded by. I know this was only possible because I was willing to change, and to learn all about the gospel I had so long avoided. The knowledge I gained at BYU-Hawaii really inspired me to share all that I have learned which leads to why I am going on a mission for this church.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that this gospel gives me a way to prepare to return to my Heavenly Father. Christ prepared the way and I know His Atonement enables us to be cleansed. I know that this gospel can bring me joy because it leads me to be a better person. I am a Mormon because I was given a second chance to make my wrongs right, to be forgiven for my mistakes, and have learned my importance here on Earth. I am a Mormon because I am a Divine Daughter of God, and this is the true gospel He has put and prepared for us to embrace.

How I live my faith

I am a missionary in the New Mexico Albuquerque Mission. I pray daily and study God's word in the scriptures, especially the Book of Mormon.
