Hi I'm Savannah

I am the oldest of eight children. I am currently on a Mission. I am a Mormon

About Me

How do you remember to breathe when everything takes your breath away? The very air in our lungs is a gift from God. Do we realize that we should be grateful for every inhale we are able to take. That when they say that you need to praise God with all your might they mean with every breath you should sanctify the air you breathe. We live in a world of blessings. I have had the privilege of experiencing so many of them. I grew up in a loving home with six younger sisters and one little brother. I learned how to work hard and play hard and I learned how to be thankful for every breath that I take. I am currently serving a mission for the church and am loving every minute of it. The power that comes from dedicating your time to helping others is so wonderful that I can barely describe it. All I know is that after only a few weeks I can teach in a language that I've never been able to speak before. That my Father in Heaven has blessed me beyond measure. That I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and Redeemer. That He has made my breaths worth taking. Life is busy but the most common statement of comfort I hear is that we can't forget to breathe. So don't. Remember Him who gave you breath and give thanks. There is so much to be thankful for.

Why I am a Mormon

Growing up in the church means a lot of things. It means learning about ancestors from generations ago, it means growing up in a ward setting with people who loved me and were always willing to help. (It was like having extended family just right outside your door.) It meant learning how to sing and carry a tune when I was five, and feeling perfectly clean when I turned eight and was baptized. But after a while you have to decide for yourself whether or not you are going to stay with what you've always known. There were many little things that lead to my own decision to stay but the biggest is probably that this gospel makes me happy. I've experienced such joy and love from learning about Christ and living the way he wants me to, that I can't deny that He is real and that He loves me. That's a knowledge that I've seen my non-mormon friends disregard and I can't even imagine trying to live without His light in my life. He is like the very ground beneath my feet. He is always there. Always willing to help me. I could not imagine life with out the solid foundation on which I stand.

How I live my faith

Serving a mission is like carrying a torch. Walking out into the night, knowing that there are people out there who don't know how to find the light. And so you stand up with fire in hand and you go looking for the people who are looking for you. I want to be able to share and to give warmth and light to everyone who is looking.
