Hi I'm Sam

I'm from Colorado Springs. I'm going to Brazil to be a missionary on March 20th 2013. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Growing up in Colorado Springs is fairly normal. Most people think we go skiing or train for random olympic sports everyday. Honestly I love learning. I taught myself how to play guitar, how to play tennis (I played on varsity in high school), and I love learning about science. People think science and religion are two separate things, but if you really understand both you'll see the very distinct connection. I have four siblings, three of which are married. I have two nephews and a niece. My family is pretty much the coolest. I'll be leaving them however in a couple weeks now. I am going to Belem Brazil on my mission and I report to the MTC in Provo, Utah on March 20th.

Why I am a Mormon

Flat out, I know the Church is true because the Holy Ghost bore witness to me that it is true. If I didn't know that for myself then I wouldn't be a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Along with going to church and things like that I've found that the best way to live my faith is by keeping God's commandments for us so I can receive the blessings he has for me, and after that I just be myself. I'm a child of God which means there's nobody else just like me, and I think I'd be disappointing Heavenly Father if I chose to be someone else.
