Hi I'm Sami Dyer

I am LDS (mormon) I love art, and can't wait to serve the people of Ecuador!

About Me

My hobbies are drawing and reading. My Mother is Michelle, who has also served a mission in Ecuador. I love animals, and playing with kids. I'm single and preparing to head on my mission on July 16.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the church, so I'm not a convert or anything, but my mother and grandmother are. They are such grand examples to me, and I wish to be more like them and the Savior. Here is where I can learn more about God's miracles, I can learn about his love, his children, his purpose for me and what his plan is for me. I will continue to follow Jesus Christ for I know that if I do I will be blessed along with all who I met in my life.

How I live my faith

I served as a nursery leader (a teacher for kids 3 years and younger) for about a year before I moved to Utah. I was also a primary teacher (for kids between the ages of 9 and 11) at my dad's branch in Pennsylvania while I was there.

Why don’t Mormons drink coffee, tea, or alcohol? What is the Mormon Church’s law of health and proper diet?

Sami Dyer
Our body is a precious gift from God. To help keep our bodies and our minds healthy and strong, God gave a law of health to Joseph Smith in 1833. This law is known as the Word of Wisdom (see Doctrine and Covenants 89:1-21). In addition to emphasizing the benefits of proper eating and physical and spiritual health, God has spoken against the use of: Tobacco. Alcohol. Coffee and tea. Illegal drugs. God promises great physical and spiritual blessings to those who follow the Word of Wisdom. Today, the scientific community promotes some of the same principles that a loving God gave to Joseph Smith nearly two centuries ago. Show more Show less
