Hi I'm Sam

I was born in Chicago, I now live in Colorado. I used to be a Catholic now I'm a Mormon... Ask me why!

About Me

Hi I'm Sam I am a communications major with a minor in political science at the University of Northern Colorado. I love people, music, and of course video games. All through high school I was a huge Theater nerd staring in 14 different productions throughout my high school career, I have a passion for the arts and all of the joy it brings with it! I am a die hard Chicago Cubs fan in fact Ill root for any sports team that comes out of Chicago however I haven't met a Cubs fan as hardcore as me. I love getting to know people and I would love to get to know you! Life can be hard but lets get through it together!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a loving Catholic family and I really lived the Catholic lifestyle, it wasn't until my Junior year of College that I started investigating the LDS Church. When I first left for College I made a promise to my Heavenly Father that no matter what I would seek and follow him even if that meant going against the so called "college norms." I loved the Catholic Church and I still love it to this day however I know in my heart that the fullness of the truth is and can be found found in the Gospels, restored for these latter days such as the Book of Mormon and the Bible. With all of the different church denominations telling us so many different things it can be hard and overwhelming however trust me when I say that God the Father and his son Jesus Christ do not want us running around like chickens with our heads cut off, I knew that a true Church, started by Jesus Christ himself existed and I was determined to find it. The very first time I prayed out loud with the missionary's in our college institute the Spirit washed over me like a wave of true and pure long lasting joy the kind of joy that is everlasting, a feeling that I and both the missionary's in the room with me felt. That was the moment that changed my life and continues to change my life to this day. The truth is out there, its staring us right in the face all we have to do is simply close our eyes, open our hearts, and listen. Take the challenge read a little out of the Book of Mormon and simply ask your Heavenly Father if these things are true. Always remember he loves you and he wants you to find him he won't let you down, he will lead you in the right direction just like he did with me. "Ask and ye shall know the truth OF ALL THINGS!" What an amazing promise!

How I live my faith

I don't just live out my Faith on Sunday its an everyday thing! we must show others the light of Christ as it shines so brightly through us. as it was once quoted "preach the gospel at all times, and if necessary use words." I live out my Faith as a witness to the fullness of the truth and the eternal happiness it can bring with it in this life and in the life to come! In my ward I am blessed to participate in home teaching where I teach a short lesson once a month at the homes of 7 amazing people from my ward, through home teaching not only am I able to bear my testimony to others, but they are able to bear their testimony to me as well. I love this Church I love all of the people and truth that this church brings with it although I am a convert to the church I know in my heart without a reasonable doubt that this Church is true, that the Book of Mormon is true, and that Joseph Smith was a true Prophet asked by God, and one of the strongest men I have ever researched. So how do I live my Faith? I live it every single day, not because I have to or because Ill feel guilty if I don't, but because I want to, because I'm in love with my Heavenly Father a love that only this Church can bring with it.
