Hi I'm Sarah Herring

I was born and raised in Orem Ut. I love to sing. I love spending time with family and friends. I'm a mormon!

About Me

I was born into the church and baptized when I was eight. I'm now a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints serving in the North Carolina, Raleigh mission. I like to sing, ride my bike, dance, play the piano, and be with my family. I have finished a year of college and will continue to go to school after my mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I've grown up in a family where that's just what we do. We live the gospel. For many years, that was really the only reason I did what I did. When I was about 14 I actually prayed and asked Heavenly Father to let me know if Joseph Smith was a prophet and if the Book of Mormon is true. I felt peace and warmth in my heart and the answer came to my mind. 'Yes, it's true.' I have built on that testimony since then. I know that when I earnestly try to live the gospel and become closer to my Savior I am happy. The gospel brings me peace and direction in my life. I've felt my Heavenly Father's presence in my life and know that he loves me, and each of His children, perfectly and completely. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is Christ's true church on this earth. I love it!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing my best to be righteous and to be an example of my beliefs and faith to those around me. I attend church, read the scriptures, and try to live according to the teachings of the gospel. I'm not perfect, but I continually try to become a better disciple of Jesus Christ and share His truth and light with others!
