Hi I'm SamYam

I love music. I teach band. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love music and everything about it! I teach music to grade 6 - 12 students in a small rural community in Canada. I play trombone in a community band and conduct another community band. I'm currently in my graduate studies in music education at Boston University. I love to dance to all kinds of music even though I've got no skills at all. I enjoy hiking and skiing and being in the outdoors. I also love biking with my tricycle that I use to blast music around the neighborhood. I set up 500 watt speakers to them and enjoy playing music as I bike around. I love my wife and my up and coming baby!

Why I am a Mormon

There have been too many experiences in my life for me to deny the truths that I know from being a Mormon. The experiences, the knowledge I have gained, and the special feeling I have felt all have confirmed that there is a God and that He loves us and that Jesus Christ is His son and the Savior of the world. I have also felt the love they both have for me. I know of God and Jesus Christ through special experiences I have had and also through reading the Bible and the Book of Mormon. Those two books have helped me become closer to Them and have helped me know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is Christ's Church today.

How I live my faith

I love the gospel and how it keeps me grounded in life. The values and beliefs I have are centered upon the teachings of Jesus Christ and His prophets. The gospel of Jesus Christ helps me lead a balanced and fulfilled life. In church I teach 12-14 year old boys and am lucky to participate in activities with them.
