Hi I'm Sabrina

I grew up in Wisconsin. I love sports. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love love LOVE to play sports, with soccer really having a special place in my heart. I grew up playing the sport and got pretty good at it too (a few state and regional championships under my belt)! I finished my freshman year at college and made the near impossible decision to quit the sport that became my first love to focus on school and my future. Nevertheless, I am happier than I have ever been in my life! Currently I am preparing to serve a mission!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because in my mind and my heart I know this Church to be true! I've grown up in the Church and was baptized at the typical 8 years of age but my conversion as been one following the idea of line upon line and precept upon precept. For some in my family they were born with faith and never seemed to doubt. But for me it took more effort. I'm a Mormon because after years of going to church and reading the scriptures and praying I have received confirmation for myself of the validity of our religion. It is undeniable. The Church pushes people to be better in loving God, others, themselves and better in general. That is why I continue in this Church and why I will for the rest of eternity. It brings hope and joy that is hard to put into words. I love the Church and the principles it is founded upon. I love our Savior and our Heavenly Father as well. That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being active in church callings. I do not merely go through the motions but really try to focus on learning and progressing. I served recently on my ward's service committee where I was able to help organize a couple blood drives, set up activities, reach out to those in my area that needed support, and really be someone that the leaders of my ward could look to and ask me to do whatever was needed. That is something that I love, to serve. I want to be someone that is willing to do anything the Lord asks of me in any capacity. For me so far that has been to help the girls in my ward growing up, preparing activities for the youth in my stake, helping those in search of family history, and more. Something that I strive to do is to show my faith without seeking recognition from others. It is something that I try to do out of pure love for those I serve. In fact, in high school the faculty awarded me the "silent leader" award for doing things to help but doing so more in the background. It was nice to receive that but I can say it was a complete surprise. I live my faith by pushing myself. Faith is a belief in things we can't see and in my mind I see it as an act of agency. We can choose to have faith. I struggled for a bit with that concept. I expected faith to just come to me but in my case I needed to decide to believe and ever since that gradual choice I have also seen my testimony continue to grow.
