Hi I'm Sam

I grew up in southern California, I am the 7th child of 8. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I am a high school senior preparing for a mission to Korea Daejeon this summer. I enjoy to play sports, especially soccer, golf, and basketball. I am planning on attending BYU-Idaho after my mission and am most likely going to study business while there.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because I know it's true and that this is His church. I know that the prophet Joseph Smith restored the gospel of Jesus Christ on the earth for us today through His power, and I know that we have a prophet called of God on the earth today. The main reason that I continue to follow the teachings of this gospel is to be ready to be the best possible tool in the Lord's hands in bringing as many of his children as I can back to him. My goal is to be able to give as many of His children the opportunity to accept his gospel in their lives as I can. The teachings of this church keep everyone following them on the right path. These teachings make this life so much more meaningful and fill it with joy. The eternal blessings involved are so amazing that words can't describe. I love this church and this gospel for giving me and the people of the world the opportunity to love and accept Jesus Christ in our lives.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by sharing it with all those that I come into contact with. I have had the opportunity to bring many of my friends from school to come and participate in the church basketball league that we have here. I strive to live the teachings of the church in my life so as to be the best example of what we believe that I can be. Living my faith has given me opportunities to share the gospel to most if not all of my friends, giving them a taste of what we believe has been a truly amazing blessing for me and for them.
