Hi I'm Sarah Leigh
I'm recently married. I speak Latvian and a little Russian. I am a Mormon.
Last summer I married my husband in the Draper Temple. It was a glorious experience. I love knowing that I'm married to this man for eternity and that no matter what happens in this life, I know I'll get to be with him forever. We live in Utah with our two dogs. We love spending time outside, especially hiking. I currently manage an art gallery in Salt Lake City, UT. It is a personal gallery for an LDS artist. The work is of LDS temples, church history, but also a wide variety of landscapes. It is such a great environment to work. I love sharing the artwork with people who come into the gallery. I feel like I have a chance to share the joy that I have found in the gospel with them. I love telling them the stories associated with the different pieces that are near and dear to my heart. I served a mission in Latvia for 18 months. Latvia is a small country in Eastern Europe. I loved my time there. I returned almost 2 years ago. I have 5 siblings and I'm the second oldest. One thing I've learned from my family is hard work. Every Saturday we weren't out playing like everyone else. We were either landscaping, cleaning the house, or doing one of the endless odd jobs. I learned growing up how to have fun while I work. My family members are my best friends. I love music and the arts. I have played piano for ten years and find a lot of joy in the creation of music. I also love photography and Photoshop. I plan to b a graphic designer some day.
Ever since I was a little kid, I've been going to church. My parents always set a good example of what it meant to be Mormon. I haven't always had a testimony. I've always agreed in the standards they set forth, but sometimes as a child I doubted whether there was a God that loved me. As I got into high school and life got busy, I asked my dad what he did to manage a busy life, and he said he relied on the Lord. I took his advice and found out for myself that there is a God in heaven that loves me, and he helped me make it through all the woes of high school. I'm a Mormon because I love the love that his gospel and he holds for me. I've never felt stronger love than that which I feel from my Heavenly Father.
I've done a lot of things to live my faith. My favorite thing was teaching 6 and 7 year-old children about their Savior and Heavenly Father who loves them. I love seeing their faces as they learn something new, and it means something to them. I also love listening to their stories. Little kids have the best stories. I also live my faith by serving others. I'm glad that we have service. By serving other, I learn more about myself. Every winter I helped to shovel snow for the elderly that lived around me. As I provided this service I learned that I love work, and I love the snow. I also loved talking to these wonderful old men and ladies and hearing the great stories they have. They really have a lot of lessons to share and I love learning from them. Ultimately I live my faith just by smiling and loving everyone I come in contact with.
