Hi I'm Sam

I live in Iowa. I love astronomy. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy astronomy and looking at the stars/ planets through my telescope. I love to swim, golf, and play tennis. I have just been called on a mission to the Chile Vina Del Mar Mission Spanish speaking. I attend Brigham Young University-Idaho.

Why I am a Mormon

At first I went to church just because my parents brought me along, but as I grew older I started to wonder why I actually went to church. I had been brought to church by my parents since I was born but I realized that it was time for me to go on my own steam. I have a testimony of the restoration of the gospel. I know that this is the true church restored on the earth today and that the only way to return back to our heavenly father is by living the principles and doctrines of this church.

How I live my faith

My calling in the church is as the Gospel Principles class teacher. It is my responsibility to prepare a lesson each week about a different principle of the gospel. The Gospel Principles class is geared toward new and none members. I am also a home teacher. Each month my companion (a married 30-something year old with 3 kids) go out and visit our 3 families and share with them a short message.
