Hi I'm Sarah Erickson

I'm a college student studying mechanical engineering. I'm leaving to serve a full-time mission in Florida in June. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love school and learning new things, I always have. I am studying engineering in college and being the one of the few girls in the program it creates many wonderful learning opportunities. I enjoy sports, particularly softball, and being outdoors. I love creating art and reading books in my spare time.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe this church is true and the truth we teach is so beautiful and unique. I didn't always have a testimony of this gospel. I grew up in the gospel and I tended to rely on others testimonies instead of trying to create one of my own but I always believed that families were forever. Later on in school I finally developed a testimony of the prophet Joseph Smith. After realizing that he truly did reestablish the full church in the latter days I began to know the rest of this beautiful gospel is true. I love this gospel. We are on this earth for a reason and because of our Savior, Jesus Christ, we will live with our families once again.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by showing I believe in what is being taught. I try my best to be a good example to others. I love to visit other girls in my ward and be a part of the ward with a calling. My next step in living my faith is serving the Lord in a full-time mission in Florida.
