Hi I'm Sarah Walls

I was born in England but I grew up in Horn Lake, Mississippi. I am a Mormon and have been a member all my life.

About Me

I went to Brigham Young University in Idaho for my first year of college. There I met many great friends that I feel like I have formed a bond that would turn into an everlasting friendship. I love karate and do it yourself projects. It is always a great feeling to know that you have created something all on your own or with help from your dad. Karate relieves my stress and keeps me the clam person I am and helps to keep me fit.

Why I am a Mormon

Like I said before I have been a member all my life,I grew up in this church. There have been times that I have question do I really believe what I grew up knowing. The answer is that I do believe with all my heart these doubts or questions in my life are there to help me grow my own faith and not my parents. Through the power of the Holy Ghost and the experiences I have had I know for myself that their is no other church that I want to be then the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints or the Mormon church. I love this church and truly feel like family with everyone of the members and know by God we are family.

How I live my faith

In my church at Brigham Young University in Idaho I helped keep up with visiting teaching. With visiting teaching you are assigned someone in the church to go to another members place and just visit with them and teach them a little lesson. My job is to see who all did their visiting teaching for the month and report it back to the visiting teaching advisor. We do this to make sure that are members feel loved and cared about and to help their faith to grow more.

Why is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints called Mormons or Mormonism?

Sarah Walls
We are called Mormons because of the Book of Mormon that we teach to others. Mormon was a prophet of God who organized the structure of the book that Joseph Smith later on translates into a language we all can understand. Mormon is not the official name of our church it is the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. We are called Latter Day Saints because this is the latter days and saints refers to serving Heavenly Father. Saints does not mean we are perfect it just means we are striving to perfect ourselves.
