Hi I'm Sam Fisher

I am a messsenger, a mentor, a fearless (hah!) defender, a project manager, and a rock awesome dude. And a mormon :D.

About Me

I'm young, I'm single, I'm an adult and life is pretty awesome. Even the hard parts are awesome 'cause I'm a gospel man! I work as a project manager for a great software company and have always leaned toward the technology sector in my vocational studies. Electricity is a very cool thing. I like studying history, leadership, health, economics, and pretty much anything else that catches my attention. I went to France on my mission and holy cow! What a people! What a place! Loved the history. I also try my best to keep up with those I met and befriended. It's fun to see how people changed, and how they are doing today. Last of all, I like being awesome! Don't be glum. Be awesome.

Why I am a Mormon

It's funny, why I am a mormon is so complex and yet the core reason is so simple, it's hard to believe that it all boils down to just a few plain verities that I absolutely know. This is the basics of it. The book of mormon is a way that anyone can know that God is true. Read it and ask and it works like magic. It doesn't matter if you don't know a lot yet, just ask with a sincere heart and real intent, and you'll know that it's true and that you need to figure out more. Then start doing everything you Jesus wants you to do. Read the book of mormon and the bible and just think about what you should do because of it. Then do it. If you do this, crazy things will start to happen in your life. You will know that the whole message is true, that Jesus is the Christ, that He has a wonderful plan for us, and that His church is restored on the earth today. Try it.

How I live my faith

The gospel of Christ is truth and love. It is something worth standing for. This gives me a lot of courage in my life. I work every day to have integrity in my interactions and to be a strength to all those around me. I like being a project manager because I enable. I help people get where they want to go, and get done what they want to get done. In his ministry Jesus Christ also helped people to see new things and to progress. I constantly ask Him to open my eyes and to help me see what I need to see, do what I need to do, and be what I need to be.

Who is the Mormon prophet today?

Sam Fisher
I think when people ask who a prophet is, they think of someone wandering in the desert with rags on and a walking stick, saying things hard to understand. While there were of course some prophets in the bible that were called in the wilderness to serve God people forget that a prophet is simply someone willing to follow God and then called by Him to lead his church. Today, our Father loves us no less than in times before and He wants us to be happy no less than in times past. So, when the world was ready to welcome His gospel upon the earth, God called a prophet to organize His church again on the earth. He gave him his power to fulfill his calling, and instructions to guide us through the troubled times that came before us. That prophet passed on the calling as Peter passed authority to Matthias or Elijah called Elisha. This how Thomas S. Monson, the current prophet, got called today. He is not a man in the desert or someone who tries to speak of strange things. He is a righteous man who has asked the Lord to follow His will and finally was chosen by revelation to guide God’s Church on the earth. I know he is the prophet first because he speaks God’s word, second because he is the only one on the earth to whom has been passed Christ’s authority in an unbroken chain to Christ himself, Third, because the Spirit confirms to me that this is the one He chose. If you want to know for yourself, I invite you to do the same. Show more Show less
