Hi I'm Sadie Heather Reid

Born & raised in Utah, 22 years old & preparing to serve a mission. I report 9/7/16 serving in the Wisconsin Milwaukee mission.

About Me

I was born and raised in Utah and have grown up in the church. Currently preparing to serve a mission that I report for on September 7, 2016. I will be serving in the Wisconsin Milwaukee mission. My previous employment was property management but my dream job is to be a cake decorator and/or party planner. I have one older sister and two younger brothers.

Why I am a Mormon

Since I have always grown up in the church, I never really asked questions like "is this true?" Or "do I really believe this?" That was until I entered high school and started hanging around with people who were not members and did not live or believe the teachings of the church. I began to fall away. To do things I shouldn't do, things I knew were wrong but I did them anyway. I began to lose friends, my relationships with my family began to weaken and I tried to convince myself that I was happy. I knew I wasn't. I can't say what changed or when it changed or how it changed, but something changed and one day I came back. I started to pray again, I started to read the Scriptures again, and I started choosing what I wanted in my life and not worrying about what the world thinks you should want. Slowly I noticed things around me started to get better, I was happier, I cared more about people and their well-being, and I began to receive blessings, blessings I didn't think existed or didn't think I deserved even if they did. I didn't do these things because someone told me to, I did them because I wanted to. And I kept doing them because they worked! I know that if you sincerely have the desire to ask questions and try new things that you haven't tried before, you will see the effects occur. Now I do ask myself, "is this true?" "Do I really believe this?" And without a shadow of a doubt I know that the answer is yes. And I know that you can ask these questions too, and if you have a sincere heart with real intent to know if it is true or not, you will be given your own answer.

How I live my faith

This past summer I served as assistant camp director for my ward for girls camp.
