Hi I'm Samuel Beckett

I'm a tennis player, dog lover, and a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a student studying computer science, and I love it! I work providing software support to a medical clinic in Idaho when I'm not at school. I really enjoy working with computers, playing tennis, listening to music, and spending time with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I love the gospel. The feeling that comes from living what Jesus Christ teaches us through the scriptures and our modern day prophet isn't found anywhere else on this Earth. I'm happiest when I live the way that He wants me to live, and I know that following His commandments is what He wants. It's simply incredible how much good comes from this church! I know that The Book of Mormon is 100% true. The stories and lessons learned from its pages are so powerful! I am grateful that I have grown up in an environment that showed me from an early age that following Jesus and our Father in Heaven is the way to go. I know that if we let it, this church will bring so much happiness and love into our lives.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by staying true to the principles taught by the prophets, both modern and old. I abstain from substances harmful to my body, and I read the scriptures daily. I attend church services every Sunday, and seek ways to help out the community with service projects as well.

Are Mormons Christians?

Samuel Beckett
Absolutely! A standard definition of "Christian" is "A person who has received Christian baptism or is a believer in Jesus Christ and his teachings" (found in the Webster online dictionary). Mormons definitely believe in Jesus. His name is even found in the full name of our church- "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints". We know He suffered and died for our sins, and the only way to return to live with Him in heaven is to follow what he taught. The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. It tells of His ministry to the ancient people of the American continent, after He was resurrected. Show more Show less
