Hi I'm Samuel

I'm a missionary for The Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, serving in the England Birmingham mission!!

About Me

I love to play golf, ping pong, and baseball. I'm serving in the England Birmingham mission, and I'm a mormon! I am extremely proud to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I believe with all of my heart that nothing can make us happier than abiding by the principles and teachings that are given to us as members of this church. I know that god wants all of us to be happy, and is making plans for all of us to be happy, but we have to be willing to follow his guidance. The best advice I could give to anyone is to read the book of Mormon, and change every day as a result. There is no money, coaching, psychologist, etc. That could teach us how to live more content filled lives than the Book of Mormon can.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because the power of the atonement is real! and because the Book of Mormon is the most true book on the planet. I've seen the happiness the power of this gospel has brought to not only me, but my family and my friends as well! I am a mormon because Jesus Christ loves me personally, and I love him, and because I love him, I made the covenant of baptism to show that I would follow him for the eternity.

How I live my faith

By serving a mission, and recognizing the power of god in all of my sucess. The Atonement of Jesus Christ allows us every single day to be forgiven of our sins, and there is no limit to how much we can use it.

Who founded Mormonism and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?

Samuel
One of the greatest parts about being in this church, is the fact that this is the Church of Jesus Christ himself. It is definitely not Joseph Smith's church, although he played a crucial role. Joseph Smith was a normal young man, an honest seeker of truth. Like any seeker of sincere truth, he was willing to act on any answer that he received from god. He went into a grove of trees with a simple question, "What church is the best for me to join?" He knew with all of his heart, that he would join whichever church god told him to. The answer he got was unexpected, we believe that he saw Heavenly father and Jesus Christ, 2 separate beings who commanded him that he must not join any of the churches, but he would need to be a prophet to restore lost truth. I firmly believe that one of the reasons that Joseph received such a powerful answer, is because he was ready to act on what he felt. This is the saviors church. He is our eternal head. I hope we can all let Joseph Smith be an example to us in this: When we want to receive answers from our prayers, we have to change as a result of what we feel. Show more Show less

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Samuel
One of the best ways we can grow a strong relationship with our father in heaven, or get to know if he's even there at all, is through sincere prayer. One of the best ways to know if he indeed is there, and listening, is to ask him if he is there, and if he is listening!! If we ask with a sincere heart, and if we listen, he will let us know. Listening is so important when we are praying, many people see praying as a one-way phone call, but if we want to strengthen our relationship, we need to listen. Not only do we need to listen, but we need to be willing to act. If we sincerely want to know if god is there, then we have to be willing to change our life if he indeed answers our prayers. If we are willing to change as a result of the things we feel, god will never leave us hanging, because he wants us to change, becoming better and better every day. Show more Show less
