Hi I'm Sarah Meister

I live on Prince Edward Island, Canada and I'm in grade 11. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 16 and I'm in grade 11. I enjoy playing piano and clarinet, cooking, reading and doing anything outdoors with my family like hiking and camping. I have a big family with 4 siblings and my parents. In school I love science and I plan to go to university for medicine or environmental sciences. Right now my older brother is preparing for his mission and I plan to go on a mission myself in a few years. My family and the church means everything to me.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and I have always had the gospel in my life. Over this time I have come to appreciate all the blessings that I have noticed in my life and my family. I can feel the love that we have for each other and I know this comes from the gospel in our home. I know that the gospel is true and how much it means to me. Whenever I go through troubles in my life the gospel helps me through it. That is why I'm a Mormon and I am so grateful for it.

How I live my faith

In my school there are only three members of the church, and one of them's my brother. Because of this it is difficult to keep my standards. But I try my best to be honest with everyone and be the best person I can. In my branch I was recently called as the pianist and I practice the hymns a lot and play them to the best of my ability. I love the spirit that the music brings to our Sunday meetings.

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Sarah Meister
At around 600 B.C. a prophet named Lehi was commanded to leave Jerusalem. He took his family in the wilderness and they sailed to the Americas where they formed a great civilization. As the civilization progressed, more prophets were called over time and each of them wrote records of the people. Eventually, A prophet named Mormon took all these records and abridged them into one book; The Book of Mormon. Show more Show less
