Hi I'm Sara Frandsen

I grew up in Utah in a small town. I love the outdoors and the mountains that surround where I live. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I have lived in Utah all my life but I love to travel and see different things. I love the outdoors and going camping in the mountains. I am an animal lover and like to draw, spend time with my family and friends, read and watch movies. I am 19 and have gone a year to college. I love to go shopping but hate spending money, which puts me in a hard place. I am defiantly a small town girl and love the country! I am the oldest of 2 sisters whom I love deeply. I am currently preparing to go on a mission to England and couldn't be more excited!

Why I am a Mormon

My family hasn't been active in the church for the first part of my life although I was baptized when I turned 8 because of my amazing example of my cousins. Later, when my family moved, we started to attend church together. It has become a blessing in our life and has brought us closer than we ever were before. I know that without this gospel in my life I would not be standing here today. It has helped me stand in times where I thought standing was not possible. Through the trials in my family's and also my own life it has given me strength and reassurance. I cannot imagine a life where I wouldn't have the strength of Christ as my backbone to hold me up.

How I live my faith

I am currently preparing for a mission right now to England so that I can preach this gospel to those who may not know about it yet. I was active for most of my life and held probably every calling in the Young Women's Program, which is a group of young girls from ages between 12 and 18, from secretary to president because of the smallness of our area. I loved every minute of it and am so grateful to the opportunity to spend time with those girls.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Sara Frandsen
Family is essential to Gods plan for us. Through our families we can have the greatest experiences in serving, teaching and learning from one another. In a world where we have a father, mother and children it is obvious to me that family plays an important key to the way we live. We believe that it is possible to return to God and to be united to our family's eternally. Through personal experience I have seen the blessings of having a unified family and I know the importance of loving one another with Gods love. Show more Show less
