Hi I'm Sarah

I'm Australian, I've defeated many life challenges through Gods help, and I'm a MORMON!

About Me

I love to spend my time outdoors from; skateboarding, swimming, hiking, camping, running, playing guitar during sunset. The outdoors just thrill me to the very centre and brings a certain peace into my life.

Why I am a Mormon

A few years ago I was involved in a car accident involving the majority of my family. Life changed dramatically of how we had to cope with this issue but even with all the challenges since this event our family seems to cope. We get frustrated and annoyed but yet we have a spirit of peace come into our lives which helps us move on and be kind to someone else. That is why I'm a Mormon, there is nothing that could bring that same peace, no not even the outdoors than what I feel and that feeling is the spirit of god illuminating the dark road ahead, telling me I'm not alone in this dull world and that there is a god who can help me every step of the way. That is what life's about, it's our time to prepare to meet god by recognising god every single day from a warm smile on the street to the clouds in the sky. God is all around us, in us all and is all the good in the world. sometimes there's things you just can't explain, it's not a coincidence or a bit of luck, ITS GODS HAND REACHING DOWN telling us, "Hey, I'm here, turn to me, listen to me and I will look after you." Bad things still happen, no one is exempt but you can be prepared and know how to react when those bad things happen when you're focused on christ and his miraculous power. He hasn't taken my pain, or injuries away but what he has taken away is the grief, the sorrow and the darkness. I'm at peace, full of joy and love life with all my opportunities. No matter what happens if you live life gods way eventually everything will work out. I wouldn't want my life any other way because if it was any better I may have missed gods influence on my life and may never have noticed his great mercy.

How I live my faith

This peace and joy that has filled my life is the most incredible feeling and I have decided to go on a mission and have been called to serve in the Portugal Lisbon mission. I leave in the next 2 weeks and cannot wait to go and love and serve the people in Portugal. I'd say everyone in this world needs this gospel and the light, hope and joy it brings and so in Portugal I pray to god that he may allow these beautiful people to hear what I have to say and see the difference this gospel can have on their lives because it's worth all the sacrifice in the world. There is nothing in this life that can compare to the love of God that can be felt when your family can be sealed for time and all eternity, when you're given a fresh start and when all regrets and past mistakes are washed away. I don't need to really try and live my faith because my life is my faith. I don't want to have an impact on only one person, I want to show the world the light of Christ and how marvellous life truly can be with Christ as centre. So I have about 10 million people to teach when I get to Portugal and I honestly cannot wait. No one deserves to miss out on this opportunity and I know God will make sure everyone gets this opportunity to see what he can do in their lives, I'm just going to be his instrument in creating that opportunity for hopefully many of the people in Portugal.
