Hi I'm Sam

I grew up in Oregon. I am on a Mission in Utah waiting to go to Brazil. I love the outdoors and music. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have grown up in the beautiful state of Oregon. I love pretty much any sport, watching movies, and listening to a lot of music. I am on a mission right now in Southern Utah, but I am waiting to get my visa to go to Brazil. I love the great outdoors, hanging out with my friends and family and just doing my thing.

Why I am a Mormon

Well, i was born into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints, and when i was in my teens i figured i might as well try to figure out if i truly believe in the Church. I liked it a lot, but i needed to know if it was true, so i decided to read the Book of Mormon and pray about it and after a few days of this i felt i had received an answer. While i was in the Missionary Training Center preparing for a mission, i did this again and i got the warmest feeling i had ever received and i knew without a doubt it is true. I love the gospel and all that it does for us, the ability to put our past behind us and move forward each day striving to be a little bit better than the day before. I know that Jesus Christ knows me perfectly and personally and Atoned for my sins so i can live with my Heavenly Father again. I know that my family and I will be together forever and that in itself has gotten me through so many tough times in my life. Without the gospel i would kind of be just ghosting it through this life, but i know where i am from, why i am here and where i am going, and i am so blessed.

How I live my faith

Well i guess right now i live my faith by serving a mission. By devoting my time and energy to serving the Lord. Before my mission i lived my faith by trying to help other people out each day, going to church and trying to be my best self.
