Hi I'm Sadie

I was born and raised in Washington. I love the outdoors. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a big family, I'm the 7th out of 8 children. I'm a Sophomore in college and studying to be a marine biologist. I love the outdoors, especially lakes and beaches. I love hiking and playing goofy board games with my family. I also enjoy reading, playing tennis, painting, hanging out with friends and and babysitting my many nieces and nephews.

Why I am a Mormon

At first I chose to be a Mormon because I was raised in a Mormon family, and I liked going to the classes they have for little kids on Sundays. As I've grown older I've chosen to stay a Mormon because I believe the teachings of the Church. As I have tried to live these teachings it has not always been easy, usually it's a struggle. But there is no other way I have found to draw closer to God and to bring meaning to each and every day as a part of eternity. I believe that I can be with my family forever and I wouldn't give that up for anything. Sometimes I slack off in my studies and I forget the blessings that following the words of the Prophet brings, but each time that I have come back to those teachings and done my best to live them I have been blessed even more and my testimony has been strengthened. I know that Christ lives and loves us immeasurably, and that through Him we can return to live with God. I know that through the Atonement of Christ my sins can be forgiven as I continue to focus on Him and change what needs to be changed. I know that He loves us and wants us to be with Him. When we reach dark times in our lives we tend to pull away from things and try to figure out life on our own, but I know from experience that that is exactly when we should turn to God and draw nearer to Him. My testimony of these teachings keeps me going and pushes me through the darkest days and makes me even happier on the brightest ones.

How I live my faith

I have served as the president in my class for girls my age several times between the ages of 14-18. I helped plan activities for a group in college that met every Monday night, and I have also been a teacher for a class in church on Sundays called Gospel Doctrine.
