Hi I'm Sarah

I grew up in Kaysville, Utah. I'm an artist, a student, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Utah in a family of six. I am currently attending Brigham Young University studying Studio Art and Art Education. I love reading, baking, movies, family history, travelling, indie and folk music, and all things art. One of my favorite things to do is to just spend time with my family!

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptized as a member of the LDS church at eight years old. I am a Mormon because through my experience in the church - as I have learned, grown, and followed its teachings - I have gained a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. I would not have come to know Him as I do through any other way. I firmly believe that this is His true church upon the earth. Through study of the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and the Doctrine and Covenants and through the power of prayer, I have come to know for myself that His teachings are true. I know that Jesus Christ suffered and died for me and each person who ever lived and will live so that I could return to Him. Above everything, I know that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love me infinitely. That is the single most comforting and incredible piece of knowledge that I possess, or that anyone can possess. I love how the church teaches that anyone who really seeks to know of God's love for them can find that assurance and feel of that love.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to being aware of the needs of others and looking for opportunities to serve them in my daily life. In my ward, I am on the Service Committee. We organize activities to involve people in service to both our close neighbors and friends and those we don't know out in the community. As a member of the church, I also participate in visiting teaching, which emphasizes seeking out one person, being a friend to them, and doing what you can to meet their needs.
