Hi I'm Sam

I'm just and Average Bloke from Sydney, I'm from a family of 4 sisters and 1 brother , I'm a Mormon

About Me

About me? Well i am currently serving a full time mission in the Australia Melbourne Mission and i am loving it I'm from the Class of '09, loved Drama and Ancient History at school. I really love Music its a huge part of my life and my family's life there is always music playing in my home. I have 2 older sisters, 2 younger and a younger brother. BIG family but i love it we share the load around quite well when i return from my mission i don't have any real ideas of what i want to do but i do want to go to University at some stage

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I have tried and tested the promise in the Book of Mormon i read the words in that book and seen how they directly apply to me and to those around me. I asked our Loving Heavenly Father if the things in the Book of Mormon were true , if Joseph Smith saw God the Father and his son Jesus Christ in that grove of trees and that we have a living prophet today. these things i know to be true as i felt the Holy Ghost bear witness to me that they were true by the feelings of peace, warmth and comfort  

How I live my faith

I'm Living my faith as a Proselyting Full-Time Missionary of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints but I am also living my faith by the example I set to those around me. Not being afraid to take a stand for the things that i know to be true. I'm SO Grateful for my faith as it helps me face the challenges of life with a positive attitude. And to Endure to the End with a smile on my face

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

Sam
this "Testimony" is what we believe and what these beliefs mean to us. these testimonies are our prized possesions if you will as they are part of our very being. this is not meant to sound something superficial but its to show that when we share our testimony with others it can be small and still mean the world to us and to those who hear it.   Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

Sam
The purpose to this life is for us to prepare to meet God. to do that we need to start living in a way that He would want us to. so for myself i look at life in the wider scheme of things i look at the personal descisions that i make and then look at the outcome of that descision. i to also recognize that we have been given so many great oppurtunites of this life the has to be some point to it right? so there has to be some things we need to accomplish in such a small amount of time, this earthly experience. we can really find some peace of mind when we have a look at the Eternal scheme of things and see that we have accomplished good things. We then can feel if what we are accomplishing is of worth when we feel good about our descisions    Show more Show less
