Hi I'm Sam Reed

I was born and raised in Provo, Utah. I enjoy spending time with friends and family and meeting new people.

About Me

I am a student studying graphic design at BYU.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church. Growing up everything I was taught made sense to me and I never doubted it. I wanted to know for myself independent of my parents, leaders, and friends that what I believed was from God. I read the scriptures, especially the Book of Mormon everyday and I prayed. In the accumulation of many experiences, feelings, impressions, and decisions I have come to know for myself that God lives and loves us. I know he hears my prayers and answers them. I know that this is Jesus Christ's church and through him we can find true happiness.

How I live my faith

As I go about my day I interact and meet a lot of different people. I try to remember that everyone I meet is a son or daughter of God. I believe that God has a purpose and a plan for everyone and that he has given everyone specific talents, abilities, and strengths to benefit those around them. I hope to discover what talents, abilities and strengths He has given me and do my best to use those to help the people around me. I am happy to know many people in my own life that have taught and helped me to know the gospel better. Above all I am grateful for the atonement of Jesus Christ. It humbles me and helps me to put my life into perspective when I ponder his sacrifice for me. I try everyday to change and to follow His example.
