Hi I'm Sarah

I was born and raised in southern California and am now serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

About Me

I've grown up in a combined family of 10 as the middle child and love spending time with them. I especially love beach camping and outdoor athletics and activities. I enjoy surfing, skateboarding, drawing, pilates, and hiking. Right now, I am currently serving as an LDS missionary in Eastern Idaho and it has been an incredible experience for me.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know our Father in heaven loves us so much that he provided a way for each of us to be truly happy, to learn, and return to live with Him again some day. Our Savior, Jesus Christ, means everything to me. Through Christ, I can pass any feelings of being lost because He is the way for us to find complete peace. I have experienced and appreciate how God's plan blesses each of us as individuals and families. Through my trials and easier times, I have came to know that the atonement applies to us at all times as we can always be changing to become more like Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by remembering each day to smile and be happy. I try to remember each day that everyone I come encounter with is a child of God. So where ever I may be, I like to get to know peolple for who they are and learn more about how they use their gifts and talents for good in their life.

Why do Mormons perform proxy baptisms in their temples?

Jesus Christ is our ultimate example, and like him we all can be baptized. Not all of us have been baptized in our life on earth, so we give our deceased ancestors the opportunity to accept a baptism preformed in the temple in their behalf. We do this because Heavenly Father loves us so much that he provided us with a way to return to him through baptism. Each of us are his children so we gives us all the same opportunity to be baptized. Show more Show less
