Hi I'm Sam

I have grown up in the South-East of England and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 23 years old and I think my life is great! I am happily married and have a son. I work as an accounts assistant in a finance department for a well known and established insulation company. I am also studying towards my AAT qualification and I plan to study CIMA in the near future. I have served as a missionary for the church and have been active in the Mormon faith since I was 17 years old.

Why I am a Mormon

At the age of 17 I started to ponder some deep questions about life. I wanted to know "if there was a God", and "if there was life after death". Soon after pondering these questions I came across the Book of Mormon. After reading from the Book of Mormon and attending the Churches Sunday services I came to know the answers which I was searching for.

How I live my faith

I love to get involved where ever I can. I love the doctrine of the church and spend alot of my time searching the scriptures, including words from the modern day Prophets, and apply what I learn to better myself, my family and to draw closer to God. I also have responsibility over the local church that I attend, which keeps me active in the Mormon faith.

Why don’t Mormons drink coffee, tea, or alcohol? What is the Mormon Church’s law of health and proper diet?

As it is a commandment from God. Our bodies are gifts from God and He has given us a law of health named the "Word of Wisdom" to keep our bodies in a healthy and well preserved state. Living the Word of Wisdom has lead me to feel closing to my God and more like His son Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
