Hi I'm Sam Ritchie

I love life and I'm not scared of whats after this life because I am a mormon.

About Me

I'm 21, have three brothers, and love to spoil my dogs. I'm from Idaho Falls and I've worked in potatoes fields since I was 13. My dad and I also ran a small wood working buisness with a CNC router, and we have a little hay farm. I am an eagle scout. I love camping with my family. I love hunting and fishing with my dad and brothers especially if I'm able to out fish them. I have a passion for all extreme sports: snowboarding, skiing, skateboarding, longboarding, skimboarding, wakeboarding, paintballing, ping pong and sting pong, frisbee golf. I also grew up with my cleats on my feet running around kicking a soccer ball till I was in high school.

Why I am a Mormon

It has been through the book of mormon and prayer that I have been able to come to know by the spirit the church is true. I know that we can grow closer to our savior through the restored gospel of Jesus Christ than any other way, and it is the only way we can be with our families forever and return to live with our heavenly father. The gospel has answers to so many questions asked among all kinds of people. It allows us to find our true identity as children of god. I know god loves all of us and knows our potential. The gospel allows to have a better relationship with him and be able to recongnize his role in our lives.

How I live my faith

Imperfectly... but i try. I believe the best way to go about living my faith is to simply strive to be a good person daily even when no one is watching. Having faith, hope, and charity in my eyes is the key to being truly happy. When I forget about myself and try to align my actions and thoughts with the lords commandments is when I begin to feel the spirit in my life, and then I know I am living how I should.
