Hi I'm Sam

Hi, I'm Sam. I am from Salt Lake City, Utah, and I am a Mormon!

About Me

My name is Sam. I am currently preparing to serve a two year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Anchorage, Alaska. I couldn't be more excited. I graduated high school last year and just finished my first semester of college. I love the outdoors, sports, music; I just like to have a good time! I play the guitar and a little bit of piano, I love basketball, I like to ski, hike, camp, mountain bike, and anything else that brings a good adventure. I also love spending time with my friends and family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love Jesus Christ and His Gospel. It brings so much peace to know that I can be forgiven of my sins and that Jesus Christ loves me no matter what I choose to do or be. I know that the Church is true, and that Jesus Christ truly did suffer and die for each and every one of our sins and sorrows. I know that families can be together forever; that, even if we lose a loved one in this life, we will see him or her again. I am so thankful for all that Jesus Christ has done for me. I absolutely love this Gospel and this Church and I am so thankful to be a part of it. I love the Church, I love God and Jesus Christ, and I know that they live and that the Church is true.

How I live my faith

I am getting ready to serve a mission for the Church. I will go for two years to share the Gospel with others and serve those around me. Growing up, I have served in many youth groups in the Church. I have helped organize and carry out various events and activities, and I have been able to teach others. I have done much service in my neighborhood and community. I am an Eagle Scout, so I have had the opportunity to serve many people, which has been a great part of my life.
