Hi I'm Sara Matthews

I'm from Heber City Utah. I love the outdoors. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I just finished my first year of college at BYU-Idaho, and I am studying recreation management. I love being outside, doing anything and everything from rock climbing to horse back riding to playing soccer with my family. I also love reading, and my parents can attest that it is impossible to take me away from a good book. I am about to leave on a mission for 18 months and I will be serving in the Cincinnati Ohio mission!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have learned for myself of the truthfulness of this gospel. The Book of Mormongives me such a feeling of peace and comfort, and helps me to come closer to Christ. When I realize the sacrifice that Jesus Christ made for me, I am so grateful and want to follow Him and His commandments as well as I can to show my gratitude for Him. I never feel happier than when I am doing those things that Jesus Christ would have me do. And that is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Like I mentioned above, one of the ways that I am living my faith is by going on a mission to share to gospel with the people of Cincinnati and surrounding areas for 18 months. I've grown up in the church, and I have participated in many youth activities that involved learning more about my faith. I've also had so many service opportunities which have allowed me to live my faith by serving like Christ did. Reading the Book of Mormon and praying to my Heavenly Father have also been ways that I have lived what I believe.
