Hi I'm Sam

I grew up in 6 states. I love my Family, and I am a Mormon!

About Me

Me and my family have moved around a lot. I have lived in Illnois, Nebraska, South Dakota, Alaska, New Mexico, and Wisconsin. I am currently serving a mission in the California San Jose Mission. I have sereved so far in San Jose, Santa Cruz, Salinas and Morgan Hill. Sence I left my family has moved twice! My Dad is an Officer in the "United States Public Health Service" (USPHS). He is also a Dentist. My Mom is amazing and is now a stay-at-home mom. She has previously been an EMT, (Emergency Medical Transport). I finished High School and then got a job at a Little Ceasers near where I lived, then went on a mission. I am the middle of 5 children, Both my older brother and sister are married and going to school. I am an uncle to 2 neices and 1 nephew. My younger brother and sister are still at home going to public school. I love my super awesome family!! I like reading fanticy novels and enjoy being with my family. I played WII a bit before my mission, and i love playing board games with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, because I started out trusting my parents that they were raising me in the truth, and as I got older and as I read more of the Book of Mormon, I could feel it to be the right thing, and so I knelt and prayed and asked our Father in Heaven if this is the right church if the Book of Mormon is true and If Joseph Smith really was a prophet and restored the true church in these days. I receive an answer, I felt from the bottom of my heart that this church is the true church.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be a good person. Also at the time I am serving a full time mission for the church in California. As a missionary we go out with another missionary and teach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and how it has been Restored in its full truth and how the Book of Mormon is true scripture witten by prophets 600 years before Christ till around 400 years after Christ, and that the Book of Mormon is comparible to the Bible. Also that we use both the Book of Mormon and the Bible together.
