Hi I'm Sam

I have served in the US Navy, been a US Forest Service Smokejumper, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have an awesome wife and children! I work for the LDS Church as a seminary and institute teacher! Love running (last marathon was American Discovery Trail in Colorado), siwmming, biking, hiking and having fun! I want to do a triathlon in the near future!

Why I am a Mormon

Because I know Jesus is the living Christ and Joseph Smith was a prophet; I have had a spiritual witness, independent of any other source than the Holy Spirit of the Lord, that these things are true!

How I live my faith

I get to live my faith when I go to work Monday through Friday and encourage others to live our faith as well. I have served as a member missionary in my congregation which has allowed me to serve so many people both in and out of the LDS Church!

Who was Joseph Smith?

Joseph Smith was a prophet of the Lord in our day. He saw both the Father and His Beloved Son, Jesus Christ in a sacred vision. Joseph was the translator of the Book of Mormon, another testament of Jesus Christ and was the founder of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He was a husband, father and devoted citizen of the United States. I love, admire and appreciate Joseph for his courage and focus on the Lord Jesus Christ; because he saw God the Father and His Son, Joseph is a prophet, seer and revelator. I know his story is true and I am grateful for it. Show more Show less
