Hi I'm Samantha

I grew up in four different states. I love musicals and books. I am a student and a soon to be missionary and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am from a family of five and I am the oldest of three kids. I moved around a lot growing up. I have lived in four different states and soon I will be adding one more to the list. I just finished my first year at Arizona State University. I am studying English and Political Science. I am aspiring to become a lawyer. Recently, I was called to serve a full-time mission in the Florida Jacksonville mission. I am very excited to serve! I love to read, write, spend time with my friends and family, and travel.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is Christ's restored church on the earth. I know Jesus Christ loves me and that he died for me. I know that the the Book of Mormon is true and I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God. I know that Heavenly Father knows me personally and I know that he hears and answers my prayers. I was raised in the church, but I came to a point in my life where I had to decide where I was going and if I believed what I had been taught. For me, my testimony came very gradually. Just like what it says in the scriptures, my testimony came "line upon line, precept upon precept." I spent time reading the scriptures, praying, and striving to live the truths that I had been taught. I felt peaceful and happy when I read the scriptures and when I tried to live its teachings. I realized that my life is so much better with the gospel and that I would not want to live without it.

How I live my faith

I simply try my best to act how Christ would act. I try to love and serve others, obey the commandments, and share the message of the gospel.
