Hi I'm Sarah

I grew up in Southern England. I love music. I love to explore the outdoors. I'm a recent university graduate. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I recently graduated from The University of Birmingham at which I studied Medical Science; the science behind human physiology in health and disease and the methods of medical treatment. I love to learn and I am fascinated by how things work, which drives my love for science. From a young age I have learnt to play the piano and I have always loved to sing. I worked extremely hard over the years to achieve my grade 8 piano and in my first term at university I finally completed this goal. It is one of my greatest achievements. Whilst at university, I was also able to exercise my love for singing by participating in a choir. We performed Rob Gardener's 'Lamb of God' in several locations throughout England. It was a truly edifying experience. I also enjoy camping and hiking because I love to be outdoors and be surrounded by the beauty of nature. I enjoy travelling and have been blessed with the opportunity to visit several countries throughout Europe. I love to witness the many different cultures and languages that exist in the world and I hope to be able to travel more in my lifetime.

Why I am a Mormon

I was blessed with righteous parents who raised me in the gospel and although they are huge examples to me, they are not the reason why I am a member of this church. When I was 8 years old I chose to be baptised and make that commitment to keep God's commandments and always remember my saviour, Jesus Christ because I knew that He was real and I felt the truthfulness of His gospel. As a teenager I began to question my beliefs and ask myself whether what I believed in was true. I remained diligent in attending church meetings, early morning seminary and involving myself in youth programmes. As I remained true to the covenants I had made at baptism and fully immersed myself in the church, my testimony only became stronger. I have not had any dramatic revelatory experiences but I have recognised the hand of God in my life and I know that living in accordance with the gospel makes me whole and happy. I love my Saviour Jesus Christ, my Father in Heaven and my constant companion, the Holy Ghost. Without their love, support and guidance I would be lost. The gospel anchors me in this world of turmoil. And that is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Whilst at university I lived in an area with many other church members my age because there were many students who had, like me, moved in to the area. I was assigned to assist in the organisation of activities for the local young adults and complete administrative work for the weekly meetings. Through this calling I was able to fellowship many other young adults and provide assistance to my fellow church leaders. Over the years I have also been blessed with the opportunity to play the piano during church meetings for the hymns and to help the children learn songs during their session of song time. I have also on occasion been assigned to teach classes and give talks at church which has also been a great blessing to me. I also help with the many daily chores that need to be completed in the home. I believe that doing these small and consistent acts of service for others is how to most effectively become like Christ. When I do this I feel like I am truly living what I believe in.
