Hi I'm Sam McReynolds

I am British born, Australian raised , i love everything about life, and look forward to every day i have ahead!

About Me

I was born In England, but from the age of three grew up in Sydney, Australia where I learned to love the beach and surf culture. I also used to enjoy playing soccer and rugby while I lived there. When I was 15 I moved to the United States, where I used my background in soccer to become the kicker for my high school football team. Having lived on three continents, I have grown to love people from many nationalities and backgrounds. Toward the end of my Senior year of High School, i decided that i wanted to serve a two year mission for my church to try and bring people the same happiness that i have found from the Gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church and been a member all my life. I have always sort of known that the Church was true since i was young. However i had never really gained a sure knowledge that it was true. For a while i tried to live my life without following all that the Gospel taught, however i soon came to realize that this was not making me even close to happy. I decided that i was going to finally find out if it was true or not, so i followed the promise in the book of Mormon and read and prayed about it. I gained my own personal witness that the Book of Mormon is true and that this is Jesus Christ's church on the earth. I continue to gain more and more of a testimony that this church is true as i live the gospel everyday and this makes it evident to me that this is the true church of Christ. And this is what makes me happiest in life.

How I live my faith

I participate in the youth activities in my ward. I also go home teaching once a month to visit with families. For the past four years I have attended an early morning seminary class, held before school starts, to study the scriptures. This has all lead me to be serve a mission , which i am currently doing in the Irvine California mission!
