Hi I'm Sabe Michael Rees

I love my friends, my family, my Heavenly Father, and my Savior Jesus Christ.

About Me

My name is Sabe! A lot of people mispronounce my name. It's like "Abe"raham Lincoln, but with an "S" at the beginning. I have two beautiful sisters and an awesome little brother. I really like being creative, being around people, and mostly just being positive and happy. I love reading and learning new things and I'm really bad at filling out these "About Me" pages honestly. I love the relationships I have with my friends, family, Heavenly Father, and Jesus Christ and I really think I might be the happiest person ever. I'm currently serving a mission in Seattle, Washington and being able to share the happiness that this Gospel has brought to my life has helped me grow into a person that I love and a person that I know God wants me to be. I'm always looking to serve the people around me and my Heavenly Father. Religion was always super weird to me growing up, but as I've lived the principles of the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ I have found that my life has been more fulfilling than I ever could have expected. And so I hope to be able to share the fulfillment with as many people as I possibly can and help everyone to come to know their Heavenly Father.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon. I'm a Mormon because I have taken the challenge of the Book of Mormon and I have 1) Read the Book of Mormon 2) Pondered in my heart the teachings it contains 3) and I have asked God, The Eternal Father, in the name of Christ if it was true. I received my answer through continued study and application of the principles that the Gospel of Jesus Christ teaches. I have come to know by the Holy Ghost that the Book of Mormon is true, that Jesus is the Christ, that Joseph Smith is a prophet of God, and that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the one true church on Earth today that offers 100% of what God has revealed to His children. I have been able to come to know by the Holy Ghost that this is true and I KNOW that everyone else, who has a sincere heart, real intent, and faith in Christ, can and will come to know of the same truth if they just read, ponder, and pray. And so I invite everyone I can to come to know of this truth. If you are reading this take it as an invitation to do what I did and to do what 18million members of this church have done around the world. Read, Ponder, and Ask.

How I live my faith

I take the principles and ordinances of the Gospel of Jesus Christ; faith in Jesus Christ and in His Atonement, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end and I apply them to my life. I continually study my scriptures, attend church, and pray so I can strengthen my faith. As I strengthen my faith it leads me to come closer to God and His will for me so that I can make changes in my life to become the person that God wants me to be: repentance. After baptism I strive each week to be able to take the sacrament worthily to be able to renew my baptismal covenants I made when I was eight years old by being baptized and becoming a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. As I renew my covenants, God renews his promise that I will have the Holy Ghost to be with me always. And I do these things continually so I can endure to the end where I will be able to live with my Heavenly Father, my Savior Jesus Christ, and my eternal family, forever in exaltation. The pattern is simple, but not easy to follow. It's not supposed to be easy. It's supposed to be worth it. Being a member of this church is the furthest thing from "easy". But the fulfillment I have from following diligently the Gospel of Jesus Christ is unmatchable to anything else.

What does Mormonism teach regarding baptism?

Sabe Michael Rees
Baptism is to be done the way the Savior Jesus Christ was baptized: by immersion, by someone holding the Priesthood Authority of God- as it was in the book of John in the New Testament when John the baptist baptized Christ. Show more Show less
