Hi I'm Sam W

I'm a Mormon. I am from California but am now raising my family in Texas. I am married with two sons and a daughter.

About Me

What defines me is my family. They are everything to me. First is my wife whom I met while we were both attending university in Hawaii. We were married five years ago in the Salt Lake City, UT Temple and now have three wonderful children. My oldest son is three years old, then we have our 14 month old fireball of a son. And then comes number three this August. My hobbies include reading, motorcycles, and scuba diving. But most of all I just love spending time with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

My wonderful parents introduced me to the Gospel of Jesus Christ from before I can remember. Membership runs far back on my fathers side and my mother converted to the church when she was 13. Because of my parents faith and teaching from my youth, I was able to know where to find happiness after finding sadness in the ways of the world. 

How I live my faith

I have found that I have to live my faith daily. I do this by consciously thinking about my daily thoughts and decisions and ensuring that they are in line with my faith in Jesus Christ and his Gospel. It takes constant care to make sure I am not slacking off on the basics like scripture study, prayer, and loving kindness to all those around me.
