Hi I'm Samuel

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have lived in Washington for most of my life with my Mom and Dad and brothers. Originally I am from California. I am an actor, and a brother, and a son and I am Mormon. I have aspired to act professionally for as long as I can remember. I have two older brothers and I love them very much. Spending time with my family is always on my to do list. I believe strongly in family first. Our Heavenly Father has made so many wonderful creatures that we can all enjoy. Every day is a blessing. Life is amazing. Helping is so much fun. Playing volley ball and ultimate frizbee is awsome. Going to movies with friends is also pretty cool. I have a loving mom and dad and I love to see them. I love to see my friends and go to hang out. Going to the beach or playing apples to apples. I look up to my big brothers and love spending time with them. Being the youngest of three makes me the baby.

Why I am a Mormon

For me it is pretty cool to have a church to go to and worship our Heavenly Father. It is so awesome to have similarities with the other members of the church and to be able to bond. I love the gospel and the blessings that are continuously a part of my life everyday and in the lives of my family and friends. It is wonderful that we are able to be members of the true church on the earth today and it really is and with the restored and full gospel. I know that as we follow the teachings of the Prophet and as we submerge ourselves in the gospel as much as we can then we can become closer to our Heavenly Father. This is His church and it is pretty cool that in today's busy world we can still be his faithful children and receive the joy that following Him brings and that makes me happy. I am a child of God and I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

To stay close to our Heavenly Father it helps me to be really involved in ward activities. I like to go to Family Home Evening and Institute. The ward also gets together for BarBQs and some fun camping trips. When I go home teaching it's a lot of fun getting to know the ward members better. Making cookies to share is pretty fun to too.

What is the priesthood?

Men both young and old are baptised into the Church, and when they are judged worthy they are ordained to the priesthood. They are given authority to act for the Lord and do His work on the earth. Show more Show less
