Hi I'm Samuel

There is no greater blessing in life than serving others. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am from Utah, born and raised. I am a college student at USU studying Agronomy. I love to be outside whether it is working or playing. I love agriculture and work in it. I love to shoot, ski, golf, 4-wheel, ride horses, farm and pretty much anything else outside. I was a FFA member and will always support the organization. I love to serve others. There is truly no greater happiness then when you are serving others. I love meeting others, to see what there back ground is and how it shapes there life so I can better myself. I love music, I have been playing the piano most all of my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to a loving family that taught be from the beginning the love the gospel. There has never been a doubt in my mind that this is the true church. I was taught in the home of the divinity of the gospel. I love my family and I know that families can be together forever. There is no greater place to learn and love than in the home. The church teaches of Christ like attributes, giving to others that they might find the same joy that we have. This gospel is one of peace and happiness; I love the Lord and the Gospel. There are so many blessings in our life if we are willing to look for them. This is hard in life but if we step back and look there is a big picture. Christ's mission on this earth was to serve others. From the beginning to the atoning sacrifice he never looked to himself but what he could do for others. This is how I hope to live. The gospel is centered on Christ. Through him we are all able to be saved and I have so much gratitude for that. No greater love has no man than to lay down his own life for his brother. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is true. It is the Lords church on the earth today. I know that there are living prophets today that lead us the way the Lord wants. I know that through Joseph Smith the Gospel was brought about in this dispensation through the power of God. I know that the Book of Mormon is true, without a shadow of a doubt. It was translated correctly by the power of God. We are never alone the Lord is always with us and looks out for us. He is our loving Father in heaven. Only through his son Jesus Christ our savior can we be saved to return to live with our loving Father in heaven. I leave my testimony in the name of Jesus Christ Amen.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a Missionary in the Alabama Birmingham Mission. I love this! It is the greatest blessing to watch those that you care about grow in the gospel and find that same joy that I have. I grew up in the church my whole life, so I have had callings in the church. I was over the 16-18 year old young men and I grew so much. There is a caring a love for each other in the group. You looked after each other and made sure everyone was taken care of. The whole church is like this though. So simply put, people observe and then they serve, giving of their time and the resources to better the life of others. There is just a love and everyone is welcome, seeing new faces are some of the greatest days. From them you meet friends for life.

What do Mormons believe about the Holy Ghost? Who is the Holy Ghost?

Samuel
The Holy Ghost is a member of the Godhead. The Godhead is made of of Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost. The Holy Ghost doesn't have a body of flesh and bones. He is a personage of spirit if this wasn't so he couldn't dwell inside of us. He helps forewarn people of danger in there path and brings guidance. He will let you know if the truth of the Book of Mormon. He is a source of joy when you truly know that he gospel is true. It is a feeling of peace when he is with you. Some may ask how can be with so many all at once? It is like the sun. The sun is always in one place but when the earth is in the right position it can have the light and heat of the sun. If we are living in accordance of having the spirit with us we can have the light and the warmth within us. Show more Show less
