Hi I'm Sam

I grew up in a household of boys. I have a soft spot for babies in Ecuador. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am Samantha Rose Tooley, but everyone calls me Sam. I have lived in Utah my whole life, but I really like going other places. I grew up with 4 brothers, but now I live with three girls in a little house. I drive a Nissan pathfinder, but wish I drove a Subaru WRX. I only listen to country in my car, but I am obsessed with U2 and the beach boys. I love painting my nails, but I only paint them pink. I am addicted to trident tropical gum, but my guilty pleasures are sour watermelons and dried coconut. I am very passionate about my elementary education major, but I am taking a break so I can serve a mission. I always thought I wanted to serve in South America, but I was already lucky enough to be able to work in an orphanage in Ecuador. My main goal in life is to raise an adorable family with a darling young man, but before that I am going to serve an LDS mission and teach second grade.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because there really is nothing better to be in the world. I am incredibly happy with the life that I live and I know that God has a specific plan and purpose for me as his daughter. Not a lot of people can say that they know what their purpose in life is. As a Mormon I know that I will be able to fulfill any expectations the Lord has for me. I am absolutely thrilled to be able to get to go out and serve as Mormon Missionary for the LDS church. I know that THAT is part of Heavenly Father's plan for me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by remembering that everywhere I go, I am representing my Savior Jesus Christ. I live day to day with the same goal to become more like him. I am constantly trying to improve my life and figure out what I need to be doing better. I live my faith by seeking out opportunities to show love towards others. I feel the very best when I am making other people smile and I know that by living a life that is centered on the Gospel, I will achieve more happiness than I could ever hope for.
