Hi I'm Sam

I am an undecided college student, adventurer, I'm kind of weird, and I'm a mormon!

About Me

I am a college student and I have no idea what I want to do with my life. I have wanted to be every profession from a doctor to a teacher to a forensic scientist to a chef! I just love doing things. I LOVE being outside and exploring and enjoying God's creations! I love spending time with my friends and family and I enjoy swimming, biking, rock climbing, speedskating, ASL, cooking, tandem biking, rollerblading, and SO much more! I just love loving life! I love helping and serving those around me and I hope to help those around me enjoy life as well. I am currently serving a mission in the Knoxville Tennessee Mission!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church and got baptized at the age of 8 as most children who have grown up in the Church do. However, I don't think it was until later that I truly became converted to the Gospel. I finally realized on my own that everything in this gospel made so much sense! It made me so happy and I wanted to be able to have that joy in my life for ever. I really have found out for myself that this church is true and I know that it is true without a doubt in my mind!

How I live my faith

I go to church every Sunday and I always strived to say prayers every morning and every night! However to me living my faith is more than that! I tried to always be an example and follow Christ the best that I could. I tried to be kind to those around me and I LOVE serving people so I was always on the lookout for ways to serve and help my friends, families, and strangers. I think it really is all about living each moment as Christ would, not just on Sundays. I am now currently serving a mission to help bless the lives of others as I have seen this Gospel bless my life!

Do Mormons regard the Bible as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

We definitely do believe that the Bible is the word of God! We also believe in the Book of Mormon which supports the Bible and testifies of Christ. They both go hand in hand with each other and support and strengthen each other. The Book of Mormon is "Another Testament of Jesus Christ" Just as we have the "New Testament" and the "Old Testament" we also have "Another Testament". It simply teaches us continuous ways to follow Christ and come closer to Him. Show more Show less
