Hi I'm Sam

I grew up in Georgia, I live in Utah, I love sports, I love life, & I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Sam. I am 20. I am on a mission serving in the California Roseville Mission. I am from Utah as of lately, but I was born and raised in the city of Atlanta. I am the kind of person that goes with the flow and tries to have fun in everything that I do. I love sports and I love to sit back on a Saturday in front of the TV with a bowl of chips and some hot wings and watch football...all day. I have a mom, dad, 2 brothers, and one sister, and a dog! My family is what keeps me going. Live it Like it's your Last!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have found that this religion is more than just a religion...it is a way of life. The church does not change for it's members....God is the same yesterday, today, and forever..... so we have to mold ourselves into someone who our Heavenly Father would be proud of. That is why I love this gospel...it has made me a much better person through it's teachings and principles and I have been blessed beyond belief from having this gospel a part of my life. The "Mormon" religion is...love, kindness, humility, service, spirituality, and charity. I love this gospel and I love the way it has brought me and my family so much closer together than we could ever be without it.

How I live my faith

One way that I live my faith is by serving a mission and it is more than just taking two years out of your life to talk with people, but it is helping them grow their faith in Jesus Christ. At this moment mine is growing too. I try to help people as much as I can. As members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, we try to find more ways to help people as much as we can, instead of trying to find an excuse to not serve someone, we look for the excuse to serve someone else. "Pure Christ-like love flowing from true righteousness can change the world." (Jeffrey R. Holland). I do my best to be the best. That is my motto as a member of the church.
