Hi I'm Sadie Carlile

I'm a college student, I love to spend time with my family, and I love the outdoors. And I'm a mormon.

About Me

I was born in Orem Utah, but my family has moved around a lot over the last few years. I mostly grew up in St George Utah though, but I definitely claim Idaho as home. I'm a true Idahoan! I absolutely love living in our small town of Newdale Idaho of only 300 people and we have a beautiful view of the Teton mountains! I have six brothers and one sister. I'm currently serving a mission in North Carolina. Before my mission I was going to school at BYU-Idaho and I plan on going back after I finish my mission. I love to do anything creative and artistic. Theater is one of my passions! I also really enjoy cooking and I have a massive sweet tooth. My favorite animal is a horse. Reading is one of my favorite hobbies and some of the things that I love to do outside are camping, hiking, and kayaking, and backpacking.

Why I am a Mormon

Both of my parents were already members of the church. So I grew up with the gospel in my home. When I was younger I remember always feeling how much I was loved by both my parents and my Father in Heaven. I knew that what I was doing was right, even if I was too young to understand everything. I saw the examples of my mom and my dad and I wanted to live my life in the same way that they did. They were honest and kind and had faith in God. They taught me that I can be with my family forever and have a personal relationship with my Savior Jesus Christ and my Father in Heaven. When I got older I started to gain my own testimony of the gospel. As I read the scriptures and lived the things that I was taught, my own faith in God grew. Now I continue to live my life in such a way that I'll be able to grow closer to him.

How I live my faith

I love to live the gospel everyday! I find so much joy and peace in living what I know to be true. I love to find opportunities to serve others and make their burdens lighter. Theres no greater feeling then helping someone who is in need.
