Hi I'm Sam

I surf, mountain bike, read, and I'm a happy Mormon.

About Me

I've lived in California since I was 2 years old and have an awesome family. Surfing, mountain biking and reading are three of my favorite things to do. The ocean and mountains are so beautiful and powerful and I love being out there. I love reading too, our imaginations are incredible and there is so much we can do. For now I'm studying mechanical engineering and would love to design things like mountain bikes and figure out how I can do some good for the world with what I've been blessed with. I love the earth and I love the goodness that we are capable of.

Why I am a Mormon

Well my whole life I've been around the church. My dad joined the church when he was 14, later married my mom who was a member and here I am. I always loved the values and good things I saw at church and couldn't see a reason not to be involved in the church. As I got older my dad invited me to read the Book of Mormon, which I did. As I got older I realized I needed to know for myself whether it was true or not, and I'm mormon because I have studied it and prayed about it a lot and from practicing what it teaches I know that it is true and right. I know God loves me and that He is real, He sent His son Jesus Christ to do what it takes so that we can live with God one day again and be happy for ever. I know in my heart that this is what can bring us to the greatess happiness and am so grateful for what it has done and will do for my life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be the best person I can be and make the world a better place by devoting myself to what I believe and doing my best to build it up and bring it to others. Christ is the best example of this, he loved everyone and helped everyone out. I try daily to follow him and treat everyone with love and respect. I decided to leave home for two years and was sent to Montreal Quebec to spread the message that God and Christ can help us out and that they have restored the gospel through living prophets today. I sacrificed two years to invite others to come unto Christ and find the happiness that the restored gospel brings.
