Hi I'm Sam

I grew up in the Mormon Church. The Church has always been an anchor for me.

About Me

I am an average American man. I grew up in a some-what dysfunctional, broken family. I credit the love of God and the service of my leaders in the LDS Church for my seeming success in surviving life. I served a mission in England in 1977. I have been married 32 years, have seven children. Four have served missions.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe it is the only true and living church upon the face of the earth. I have studied other churches and faiths. I have read the Bible and The Book of Mormon and have come to a knowledge that they are indeed the Word of God. Being a member of the LDS Church has been a blessing in my life since I was born into my crazy family. And now I have seen the Spirit work through my children also in changing their lives for the better. I have come to know the Love of God and the Divine Son-ship of Jesus Christ. I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Without this knowledge I would be adrift. Without His influence in my life I would be derelict. Without the guidance of the Holy Spirit, I would not have been able to keep my little family from falling apart. I am so thankful for the blessing of being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints!

How I live my faith

I try to be a good citizen. I try to obey all of God's commandments. I try to bring my children up following the principles taught by Jesus Christ. I am active in my community. I am active in my church. I help with the young men. I teach Sunday School in the 12 year old class. I try to influence others to follow Jesus Christ's teachings also. Wherever I go I let people know that I am a follower of Christ and I will not cuss or drink or smoke or act unkindly toward others. I am not perfect! I am trying to follow Christ and help Him, help me.
