Hi I'm Samantha

I grew up in Utah. I just finished my second year of college and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student. I love to do Zumba. I also love sports. I also enjoy taking pictures. I love nature and love the mountains. I love to hike and camp.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up being a Mormon but I had to decide for myself that I wanted to continue following the true gospel on the earth. I think that going to college is when I really decided for myself. I was on my own, things were hard, but I kept going. I always believed that this church was true but I wanted to know. And just recently I've realized that you don't have to have a big spiritual experience to KNOW that this church is true. You can know by many little experiences put together that this church is true. And because I realized this, I can now say that I know that this church is true. I know that our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love each and every one of us so much. I know He hears and answers our prayers, though it may not be how we want, when we want, or in the way we expect or would like, it comes at the best time and in the best way for us individually. I know that Heavenly Father places people in our lives for a reason. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet and I know that President Monson is the prophet who leads and guides this church today. I know that the Book Of Mormon is true. I know that we are all given trials to learn and grow from. I know trials can make us stronger. I know our Savior lives and loves us. And I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen. This gospel means so much to me and I never want to lose it.

How I live my faith

I enjoy participating in my ward in any way that I can. When activities come around I love to help in any way that I can. If people need help setting up then I help that way, if they need me to help with a project they help there as well. I also love to give talks and lessons. I find that by preparing talks and lessons, it allows me to grow in my faith and it gives me a new insight on the topic that I am going to be discussing.
