Hi I'm Taylor Samples

I'm from Sandy, Utah. I am serving a full time mission in California, San Jose-Tongan speaking. Do you have any referrals for me?

About Me

I am studying to be a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Nurse. But that is all put on hold for 18 months while I am on my mission. I am serving in the California, San Jose mission- BEST MISSION EVER -Tongan speaking. It's thee best mission in the entire world, with thee most amazing people in the entire world and thee most outstanding food in the entire world!! Other than that I love volleyball, basketball and eating. Life as a Mormon is great!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I was blessed enough to be surrounded by Latter-day Saints growing up. My cousins went to church every Sunday so I started going with them at a very young age. I came to know of the truth of the church and was baptized. And till this day still know this gospel is true! My mother came back to the church a couple of years ago after nearly 20 years of inactivity. It's just her and I! But we know we can bring my whole family to the truth. It just takes time! I am a Mormon because I found out the truth for myself. I came to know of the gospel of Jesus Christ, prayed about it, read the scriptures and received a witness from the Holy Ghost that everything was true. I am a Mormon because Christ needs me to be. He blessed me with this wonderful gospel, with amazing blessings, and incredible promises. If I remain faithful, steadfast, and obedient, I can return to live with Him again. Nothing means more to me!

How I live my faith

I am an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I am the only active member, other than my mom, in my family. I know this church is true. I have a knowledge for myself that Joseph Smith restored Christ's church here on the earth. I try to tell everyone about it and try to be the best example I can be!

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Taylor Samples
I believe our Heavenly Father loves the children of today just as much as He loves the children from the time before Christ. He sent prophets to declare His words back then. To teach His gospel and prepare them for the Saviors coming. After Christ our Heavenly Father needs to prepare us for the Saviors second coming. In so doing He has sent us current prophets to guide us. If you listen to their messages, you'll know they are men of God. Everything they say and do, directs you more to Christ and our Heavenly Father. Show more Show less
