Hi I'm Sam

I like rock climbing, and I am ready and equipted to climb the mountains in my life! I'm a Mormon! :)

About Me

I come from a family of 9 children and 2 parents. My parents are converts to the church and they taught us the importance of having the gospel of Jesus Christ in our family! I grew up on a farm in Illinois and have always had a passion for the outdoors! I feel closer to God and others as I enjoy outdoor recreation and appreciate the beauties of the earth that Jesus Christ created for us! I dearly love my family and value the temple sealing my parents had together. It brings great peace knowing that we can be together in this life and for eternity! I love that I am serving a mission for the church at this time, and look forward to continuing my major in Recreation Management when I return. As a missionary I enjoy learning everyday on how I can better myself and teach others. I love this gospel and my Savior, Jesus Christ!

Why I am a Mormon

Simply because I love my Savior, Jesus Chrst with all my heart! I know that it is only through him and the fulness of His gospel that I can return to my Father in Heaven with my family! Through the foundation of the gospel of Jesus Chrst, such as, faith, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end, we can have a sense of purpose, peace and confidence. I know where I came from, why I am here on earth, and where I am going! I know it is through this great Plan of Happiness we have temples, a prophet, the Book of Mormon and Bible. I am eternally grateful... I know it all comes from a very aware and loving Father in Heaven that wants all of His children to be happy, and return to live with Him!

How I live my faith

I am now serving an 18 month full-time mission for the church in St. George, Utah, and the St. George Temple Visitor Center. I try to continually seek the spirit to teach by word and example. As missionaries "we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ" 2 Nephi 25:26. I try to keep the two greatest commandments to, "Love the Lord my God with all my heart, and with all my soul, and with all my mind," and to "love my neighbour as myself." I sincerely read, and pray everyday to gain spiritual strength to have the inspiration and courage to make righteous decisions! I participate at church every Sunday and enjoy working with church members to talk about how we can help others strengthen their faith in Christ. I try to show an excitement to serve, teach and learn with others here on my mission!!
