Hi I'm Sam

I'm from the east coast, I love life, and I'm a happy Mormon!

About Me

I'm a college student studying chemical engineering. I love math, physics, chemistry, and especially astronomy.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents raised me in this church, but when I was about 11 years old I realized how much of a time commitment being a member was going to become. I realized that I needed to take the advice of my parents and teachers at church and find out for myself if the Book of Mormon is true by reading it and then asking God in prayer if it indeed is scripture in addition to the Bible. Before I even finished I felt confident that it was true because every time I opened it up to read it I was overwhelmed with peaceful, joyous feelings that are hard to fully describe and that I had never really felt to that level before. Even so, I followed the counsel written in the Book of Mormon and asked God in prayer if the Book of Mormon was true, and felt those feelings confirm to me that I already knew it was true. I know now that those feelings were the Holy Ghost telling me that the Book of Mormon is truly the word of God and because it's true Jesus is most certainly the Christ, Joseph Smith- who translated the Book of Mormon- really was called of God to be a prophet in these latter days, and thus the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints really is the one and only true and living church of Jesus Christ on the earth today. I have also come to realize more fully than I did at that time that anyone else willing to try the Book of Mormon out and study it and ponder it's teachings and words with a sincere heart and faith in Christ can also feel those things I felt and receive confirmation through prayer that all these things are true.

How I live my faith

I love reading from the scriptures, especially the Book of Mormon, whenever I get the chance. And nothing feels better than being able to help someone else have a better day!
