Hi I'm Samantha Schaefer

I grew up in California. I'm going to school to become a nurse. I'll be serving a mission in Tennessee. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student at Brigham Young University-Idaho shooting for a nursing career. I am off track duing the Fall season so I come home and work with the managment team at Bath and Body Works. I absolutely love it there! I get to meet lots of new people everyday and here their amazing stories. And although I'm not a big fan of homework, by the time Winter rolls around I am longing to go back to school, where I can meet even more people and continue in my education. I decided to go on a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and will be serving in the Tennessee Nashville mission. This is one of the biggest highlights of my life! I cannot wait!!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon becuase it makes me truly happy. This church has helped me understand where I came from, why I'm here, and where I'm going after this life. It is amazing to see how much our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love us! And to realize truly how blessed we are. I am a Mormon and I love it!

How I live my faith

I participate in lots of church activities. I teach the 11 year-olds in my church and I love it! I also am the pianist for our church choir and love participating in performances with them. Me and a friend of mine are assigned to visit four elderly ladies a month and share a spiritual message with them. It has been great getting to hear their life stories and feel the Savior's love for them. I have learned so much from them and it has helped me shape my future.
