Hi I'm Sierra

I love baking cupcakes. My favorite comedy troupe will always be Divine Comedy. I love my amazing husband Peter. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I spend most of my waking hours creating beautiful artwork and putting it on a plate. In other words, I'm a chef. I studied English at Brigham Young University, but cooking is my passion. I'm currently in the process of publishing a cookbook. In my spare time, I love to read, take bubble baths, paint, and go barefoot.

Why I am a Mormon

As a teenager, I was challenged to read the Book of Mormon over summer break and pray about whether it was true when I finished. Every week, everyone who had reached the goal chapter got a candy bar. At first, I was only doing it for the weekly candy bar. Lame, I know. But about half way through, it became about something else. The good feeling I got when I read was incomparable to anything else I had experienced at that point in my life. By the time I finished the book, I no longer had any doubt about the truth of this book. When I knelt to pray to my Father, I gave thanks to Him for this amazing testament of His love for His children. Ever since then, even when I have strayed from the path, I have always come back to this wonderful book and again felt God's love for me. I know the Book of Mormon is true and I know the positive impact it can have on a life. That is why I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I am a volunteer teacher in my congregation's junior Sunday school. (We refer to the junior classes as Primary, and to the teachers as Primary teachers.) As a Primary teacher, I have the opportunity to prepare a Christ-centered lesson each week and present it to my class of 7 and 8 year olds. Once a month, I visit a few of the women in my congregation and share a short gospel message with them and assist them with any needs they may have. I help with food drives and I donate time and goods to local charities. I go out of my way to help my fellow man and just try in general to be a good person.
