Hi I'm Samantha

I'm a student at BYU-Idaho, a Graphic Design Major, a musician, an Arizona native and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the third of four children in my family and am 20 years old. I am a student at BYU-Idaho studying Graphic Design. I started a floral design business with my sister. I am an Arizona native and proud of it! I enjoy cookie dough, having dance parties with my roommates, and living life to the fullest. I know life can be hard at times but know I can do hard things through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I know for a fact that cooking is the best way to heal a heart so I do it often for those around me. I love puppies who dosen't? And honestly just love being friendly to everyone around me. You can never have to many friends right? I love chocolate and if there is any around I am there and I am indeed a Mormon!

Why I am a Mormon

I am blessed to be born into a LDS family but a lot of my extended family is not LDS. However, I know that after I leave this earth, I can be with my family in heaven forever. I am so grateful for the pioneers who stuck up for what they believed in and the courage they showed. Their stories make me want to be a better person each and everyday. I am so grateful for my family, church leaders, seminary teachers and friends who have helped with make right decisions throughout my life. I honestly never want to think about what my life would be like without the gospel in it because I know that I would not feel nearly as much love and joy in my life like I do now. I have had my doubts and questions but I have never found a reason why this gospel isn't true. I know with all my heart that this is the true church of Jesus Christ!

How I live my faith

I participate in all of ward and stake activities such as mutual. I attend seminary each school day and church every Sunday. I read my scriptures and participate in family prayer every day. I am always trying to serve others and brighten their days even if its by just giving them a smile.

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

Overall Mormons aren't that different from everybody else. We still go to sporting events and movies. We still go fishing and run to the store when we run out of our favorite ice cream. We just do things a little different. We strive to dress modestly and speak kind words to each other. We go to church, the temple, mutual, and what ever else may come up. We attend seminary or institute and read the Bible and the Book of Mormon. Some of us become missionaries and some of us just serve people in our communities. We know about God's Plan for us and strive to return to him someday. We also believe that the family is essential to God's Plan for us. Show more Show less
