Hi I'm Sam Azzarelli

I was born a Catholic, raised a Baptist, but now I'm home. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a grandfather of 4 grandsons. I have 3 sons and 1 daughter, and a wife who is more than I deserve. My first love in life is baseball. I love music, and play the guitar. I also love politics. My strong suit in life is understanding, and respecting, other people. I'm a dental technician by trade.

Why I am a Mormon

I feel like the events in my life, such as growing up in different churches, as well as all the different experiences I have had with family, friends, and God, have been pointing or guiding me in a certain direction. Even in my work I have had the opportuinity to associate with all kinds of different people. At first I didn't know what direction I was heading. But The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has been a culmination of all of those experiences and associations. When I read the Articles of Faith of the Church, I am able to say "yes" to every single one.

How I live my faith

I've been a Branch Mission Leader and a ward missionary, and have a great respect for the Elders and Sisters of the Church. Currently I serve a leader for the Boy Scouts, secretary for the Elder's Quorum (a group of men in the church), and I even participate in the ward choir.
