Hi I'm Sami

I am just a California girl who loves to be outdoors and have fun with my friends and family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in california. My favorite ways to spend time are outside from camping and hiking to going to the beach or the park. My family, mostly of brothers, has always been sports oriented while i was the cheerleader. I love having fun with my friends and family. Anything that has to do with art, music, or creativity I'm there! Since high school I have graduated from a vocational school and have been working in my trade and loving it as a skin care specialist. I have had the opportunity to move around and see where my life takes me.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it draws me closer to my Father in heaven and his son Jesus Christ. I am far from perfect but I have learned that in and through Jesus Christ I can change, I can become a better person than I was yesterday. If I put forth the smallest particle of faith my efforts will be blessed, if I give God my trust he will lead me through this life, If I pour out my heart in prayer I will receive an answer, if I repent I will be forgiven, and if I follow his commandments I will live with him again. And can also be with my family for eternity!. I have read The Book of Mormon and have prayed sincerely to know if it is the word of god and my Heavenly Father answered me by the gift of the Holy Ghost with a burning in my heart and peace to my mind that it truly is. By the same way I received an answer that Christ's gospel has been restored once again to the earth through prophet Joseph smith, just the way it was organized by he himself. I have joy in knowing that there is a living prophet today to lead God's church in the way he wants it to be led and that we still receive His words today. We are not left in the dark. I am thankful that Heavenly Father hears my prayers and loves me as he hears your prayers and loves you. We can all gain this knowledge for ourselves through sincere prayer asking if these things are true. I love my savior with all my heart and want to live in a way that pleases him.

How I live my faith

Of each of the new places my life has taken me there has always remained one constant. That is my faith in Jesus Christ. I am so thankful to be a part of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and my life is blessed by both the principles I learn and the people i associate with. Through learning of the way the savior lived his earthly life we learn that we must love others as he does and give service to our brothers and sisters which are his children. Through my faith I learn each day of charity as I am asked to serve those around me and receive love and help from others. "When we are in the service of our fellow beings we are only in the service of our god."
