Hi I'm Samuel

I am a homeschooled teenager in Colorado. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hello, I am I homeschooled teenager. My main interests include many computer related things (hardware troubleshooting, programming, etc) or fantasy literature/artwork in almost any form. I would suspect that my future career would include one of those interests. I also like basically anything that is primarily abstract in nature such as math or (I have very little experience here!) drawing. I am somewhat shy, mostly by nature but perhaps partially by choice. I prefer deep, one-on-one friendships to being part of a large group. Likewise, I rarely share my feelings on anything, partly because I genuinely possess little or no preference in the matter. However, I like to believe the feelings I do have are deeply held. I guess I cluster my emotions around the things that are most important to me.

Why I am a Mormon

The reasons for my beliefs are all relatively simple. I know that my Heavenly Father and Savior love me and all people like parents love their children. I know they want me to be part of this church. The doctrines taught within help me to feel closer to them. Everything seems ultimately about keeping the two great commandments. That is why I am a Mormon. Because it's about showing love for God and other people.

How I live my faith

It is my goal to implement the principles I have been taught and value by changing myself. When the way seems difficult, it's usually a cue that I need to put increased faith in Christ and Heavenly Father. Although life can certainly seem challenging, when I am truly humble I find that I am happy anyway. As a youth, I am given the opportunity to love, teach and serve a few specific families in my ward (congregation) through a program called home teaching. The youth I associate with are quite nice and accepting and I hope I can add something to their lives.
