Hi I'm Sam

I am a college student. I love to make people laugh and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a college student at BYU-Idaho. I am studying health psychology and love to learn. The gospel of Jesus Christ is a very important part of who I am. It has influenced much of what I have done with my life so far as well as my plans for the future. I love to be outdoors. If it's hunting, fishing, camping or playing sports I love doing it. Keeping myself active in these activities and in the Restored Gospel has been what makes me so happy.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have a firm knowledge that this is the true church of Jesus Christ. Having been raised with the gospel of Jesus Christ as a foundation in my family, I learned many wonderful principles of the Restored Gospel. My knowledge that it was all true came through the power of the Holy Ghost when I was in high school. The kids around me were starting to make decisions that weren't always the best. I had to choose between doing what others were doing, and doing the right thing. As I searched the scriptures, especially the Book of Mormon, and applied the teachings of our saviour, the spirit bore witness to me that I needed to live His gospel. I am now very thankful for my choice to follow Jesus Christ and live his teachings. By following the commandements, reading the scriptures, going to church, and praying to my Heavenly Father I have been able to gain the knowledge that this is His true church and be truly happy.

How I live my faith

Being a college student means I am very busy with school, work and church callings. In each of these aspects of my life I strive to emulate the love of Jesus Christ. Every person I come in contact with, I strive to help them feel Christ's love through how I treat them. Keeping Christ at the center of all that I do has helped me keep my priorities straight and be successful. Daily scripture study and prayer are foundational to keeping Christ at the center of my life and I find nothing but joy as I do them. I love this gospel and willingly live it every day.
