Hi I'm Sam Michon

I love to travel. I have a passion for photography and family history. I am a DIYer and pinterest- obsessed. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love life! I really enjoy being outdoors and exploring the beautiful world around me. I love DIY projects and finding inspiration on Pinterest. I am passionate about photography and always enjoy learning new techniques and styles. I've lived in the beautiful state of Georgia my entire life and absolutely adore the South. I feel so blessed to live in the wonderful country of America, but I also enjoy traveling and seeing all the wonders that the world has to offer. I will be attending Brigham Young University in the fall where I plan to study family history research. I love history, antiques, 1950's fashion, and anything vintage. I love my amazing family and friends!

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon since I was born. My mom joined the church as a young adult and my dad's family joined when he was very young. For a majority of my life, my faith has come from my parents beliefs. Now as a teenager, I have learned more about what the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is all about. I know that through Jesus Christ's atonement and sacrifice we all have the ability to be forgiven of our sins and receive comfort throughout this life and one day we can return to live with our Heavenly Father and our families again. I know that there is life before birth and after death and that we will be able to see our loved ones, who have passed on, again. I know that, while other churches have much of the truth, this church is the only church on the earth today with the complete truth. This church has a strong belief in service and the importance of families, which has really blessed my life. The church is a place of refuge from the raging storms and wars of today's world. I feel so much peace through gospel of Christ.

How I live my faith

As Mormons, we believe in serving our fellow man and I love that I have SO many opportunities to serve my neighbors, friends, and community. I also try to treat everyone as I want to be treated and love everyone, despite their flaws. I try to live the commandments and live my life as I know my Heavenly Father wants me to, so that I can reach my full potential. Family is at the core of the church and family values are very important to us. I love my family so much and look forward to having a family of my own one day. I help to make sure that my home is a loving place, in which all friends and neighbors feel welcome. I am currently a family history consultant for my area. I love that I get to help others experience the joy that family history brings. In our world, there is so much devastation and unhappiness, so I strive to always have a positive attitude and share my hope and faith with those around me. Being happy and loving everyone as Christ loves us helps me feel closer to my Heavenly Father and lets me shine my light for the world to see.
