Hi I'm Samuel

I grew up in Texas. i love football and other sports, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hello, I'm Samuel. I have lived in Texas almost my whole life. I love football, art, being with friends, and scouting. Even though I'm no longer a scout I love camping and helping out the younger scouts. I'm the second youngest of 9 kids. Fun life:) During high school i worked for my dad in his lawn and landscaping company. hard work, but it was fun and keep me from being lazy. After high school I was able to take two semesters of college. During this my dads work slowed so i began to work for a party and tent rental company. I met some great people there. We had just about everthing you would need for a party or wedding. Tents (10x10 - 80x160, thats feet) tables, chairs, dishes, bounce houses, you name it. When my dad picked back up i began working for him again. Currently I'm serving a two year mission for the Lord.

Why I am a Mormon

I, like many others, was born in the church, but even I had to figure out if I would live its teachings. I dont have a big conversion story, mine came slowly and over time by living and testing its principles. There were times in my life when I didnt really care about church, reading the scriptures, or praying. those times of my life were some of the hardest times ever. In order to receive the Lords blessings we must be doing what he has asked and when we dont he cant bless us like he wants to. I found that out the hard way. When i prayed and read the scriptures my life went by easier than when i wasnt. I know this gospel is true. I've tested it and it worked. I know the Lord lives and loves evey single one of us and will always love us. He truly knows what we've been through and what we are going through. No matter what you are going through or what you want in life the Gospel of Jesus Christ can and will get you to were you want to be and who you want to become. He lives and He is listening.

How I live my faith

I am living my faith now by serving a mission. In the past I have been able to serve others in my home ward by visiting teaching and serving as teacher and student in my past youth groups. Teacher because I had to prepare lessons but student because I learned the most studying the lessons and then getting to listen to what the class had to say. I hope that when i go back home I can continue to serve others.
