Hi I'm Sam

I'm a Youth Family History Consultant and future scientist.I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy anything to do with Science.Science Olympiad,Science Fiction.I love watching chemical reactions and just love learning about how things BLOW UP! Science has always fascinated me and I hope to gain a high education and work in a field of S.T.E.M. (Science Technology Engineering (and) Math)

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church and taught its teachings from a young age. By the time I was eight I gained a testimony of the church.It was not about what my parents,friends and family told me was true.It was what I knew to be the truth.I knew the Bible was the word of God as far as it is translated correctly and the Book of Mormon was also the word of God.The things taught at church also made me feel happy.I could learn every week how to be happy and make others smile in the process.I was then baptized.It was the happiest day of my life. I have never regretted this decision and never will.Through the teachings of The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints I continue to smile and learn how to improve relationships with family and friends making my life peaceful and just great. I also have a testimony of the power of Mormon temples.There is so much joy and peace there.I know that though the power of the temple we can be sealed to our families forever though an everlasting marriage.I believe that though the temple we can be with our families for time and all eternity.

How I live my faith

I life my faith by not compromising my standards.I live a virtuous life full of service and respect to others.This brings me great joy and happiness.I currently serve as a Youth Family History Consultant.I enjoy helping others finding their lost ancestors and understanding where they came from.

Are Mormons Christians?

Sam
Mormons are Christians.Mormon is simply a nickname for members of The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints.We are called Mormons because we believe in the Book Of Mormon in addition to the Bible (as long as it is translated correctly). We are Christians because we pray and worship in the name of Jesus Christ.Our church is even named after Christ. Show more Show less

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Sam
We do not worship Joseph Smith but we do follow his teachings.We believe Joseph Smith was the First prophet after those in the Bible and the Book of Mormon.We also respect him because he restored and organized the church. Show more Show less

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

Sam
Members of the church believe in being virtuous,or in other words being clean.We don't consume certain items because they can be overly addictive.Too much of certain items such as Tobacco,alcohol and drugs can be dangerous.Not only to ourselves,but the people around us.We have also later learned that they are not the healthiest items and will not help nourish and strengthen our bodies or our physical health.
