Hi I'm Sarah

I'm a dancer, music lover, student, vegetarian, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am currently a student at Brigham Young University in hopes of becoming a Civil Engineer. I love listening to music, especially Broadway Musicals. I've been playing the piano since I was five and the viola since I was 10. Ballet has also been a passion of mine, and a few years ago I got to have my dream role as the Black Swan in Swan Lake. I have four wonderful sisters, and I am so thankful for them and their examples in my life. In just a few weeks, I will be headed to Brazil to serve a mission in Sao Paulo.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know this to be the true gospel. Though I was born into a family who was active in the church, I needed to gain a testimony of my own. I feel like I really gained this testimony when I turned twelve and started actively trying to find the truth for myself, instead of relying on the testimonies of my family members. I started reading the scriptures on my own, asking questions and finding answers. Through prayer, I asked my Heavenly Father if the things I was learning were true, and I got a confiramtion through the holy spirit. Since then, I have decided to commit my life to the church, and I want to share that with others. I have seen the hope and joy that comes through living the gospel and I am so thankful for that.

How I live my faith

I have had many callings in the church, where I have taught children as young as six, all the way to young adults that are my age. Before going to college, I also held callings, which allowed me to plan activities and fellowship other girls that were by age. Now, I will be putting my life on hold so I can teach others the blessings of living the gospel by serving a full time mission in Brazil. For the next year and a half, I will learn a new language, learn how to teach others, and fully commit myself to this calling. It's not going to be easy, but it will be worth it.
