Hi I'm Sabrina

I come from beautiful Colorado. I have the privilege to play the harp. I love to write. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Sabrina! I am nineteen years old and am preparing to leave on an LDS mission. I hate the heat, but I'm going somewhere really hot, which I find rather ironic. Prior to knowing where I was going to go for my mission, I was going to college, majoring in Psychology. I want to be some sort of counselor or therapist; over the summer, I worked as a Resident Care Aide in an Assisted Living with a Memory Care unit. I love helping others; difficult circumstances and situations have taught me how to love and care for people in ways that I wouldn't always expect. Aside from people, my other passion includes books (and Disney); anything that has to do with books. Reading, writing; I love them. There is power in words like there is a power in action, but together, I've found, makes reality really great.

Why I am a Mormon

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has become not just a religion to me--it has become a way of existence. One that has brought me joy and happiness, and peace that can't come from anything else. Knowing that no matter what happens, if I do my best, because of the Atonement of Jesus Christ, I can live with Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and my family forever. Despite grief and pain and death here, the eternities exist. I have a testimony of the Book of Mormon and it's truth, that it does not push the Bible away, but is rather another testament of Jesus Christ. We are here to make it home to our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ; these scriptures are instructions for life. The Atonement changes us, polishes us. How incredible that the Savior died for all mankind, and because of Him, we can live as families forever.

How I live my faith

In my family's church ward, I do visiting teaching with my mom, which is when we bring a spiritual thought to some women that we go and monthly visit. It's about building a friendship and being there for when they need someone. We're also working on the committee for the Fall Festival, which is essentially a Halloween Party. There's activities for kids, a chili dinner, tons of desserts, and then a Trunk or Treat. It's a lot of fun! Aside from participating in church activities throughout the week, I live my faith in small acts. It's about praying daily, reading my scriptures each day, and drawing closer to Christ. It's about serving others because of love for Him, and for others. The gospel teaches people line upon line--that's how I've learned! Change doesn't come in a big momentous event; it comes as I do my best, each day, however imperfect I am, to follow the Savior.
