VIDEO: 'I'm an Aussie Country Girl'

Australian Latter-day Saint, Sarah, talks about faith and family on

"I am chocoholic who loves to laugh. I grew up in outback Australia, I’m a bit of a tomboy, a class clown, and I have a ridiculous amount of energy," writes Australian Latter-day Saint, Sarah, on

She continues: "I love living down-under (what we call the promised land!), with my hard working hubby and beautiful little girl. We live in a stunning part of the world just out of Sydney, we have the beach on one side and lake on the other, life is full and wonderful."


"I have my own Public Relations company, which I am enjoying a much needed sabbatical from to spend more time with my family. I am in love with being a full time mother and housewife, never thought I would hear myself say that!"

"My husband dropped a bomb on me a few years into our marriage and said he wanted to pursue his dream of being a doctor, I was shocked and pregnant! But knowing the determination in his eyes, I jumped on the medical band wagon, swapped roles and spent 5 years as the income earner. Thankfully the sometimes impossible journey is over and he is now a much loved family doctor. Our family has been so blessed because he followed his dream. He is an incredible man."
