Hi I'm Sami

I'm a daddy's girl. I can probably do more push-ups than you. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a Spanish major with a Communications minor participating in the Air Force ROTC program at my college. Confused? Me too. I hope pursue a career in the Air Force after I graduate college, and I'm honored to be joining the ranks of some of the best men and women I know that sacrifice so much for their country and the people around them. I love Harry Potter, carne asada street tacos, red lipstick, high heels, my daddy, strawberry milk, and green olives. Family is everything to me. I served a Spanish-speaking mission to New York City and consider that place and the people there my second home.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon all my life. But it wasn't until I was about 14 that I truly came to know the safety, peace, and happiness that comes from living the gospel. Through every trial I have ever been through in my life, I have come to know that my Savior lives and that He cares about me and that I am never forgotten. I've come to know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the only true church on the earth today, and that it is only through the teachings and ordinances therein that lasting happiness and a deep and abiding peace can be found. I know that the Atonement is real and that it can change you and help you become more like the person your Heavenly Father wants you to become. I know that there is forgiveness available for all those who come unto Jesus Christ and live by His teachings. There is hope, there is happiness, and it can only be found in the gospel of Jesus Christ. That's why I'm a Mormon. I know this Church is true, and I know it because I've seen it change my life. I know it can bring you the happiness and peace that you seek.

How I live my faith

I always try to be kind to others. I try to do my best in every position I have in the Church, no matter how unimportant it may seem. I pay ten percent of my income and sometimes more to help fund Church programs and to help bring the gospel to people around the world. This may seem like a sacrifice sometimes, but I have gained so many blessings from paying my tithing (paying that ten percent). I love doing genealogy work and learning about my family who has passed on.
