Hi I'm Sam

I love music and movies. My dream is to become a film sound technician. I cook and read in my spare time. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student studying film sound. I love music and have been playing the piano and singing since I was small. I listen to everything from classical to rock to country, and just about everything in between. I also love to cook, and experimenting with new recipes is a favorite pastime of mine. I especially love watching peoples faces when they eat my cooking and like it! Although I'm usually stuck doing a lot of homework, I like to get away by watching a movie or taking a walk or going for a run.

Why I am a Mormon

While it is true that I was born into this church; my decision to stay in it has been entirely my own. In the past I have questioned this church and my faith. I wasn't sure if I actually believed in this Gospel, or if my participation in it was a result of being raised in it. I turned to the Lord in prayer and scripture study, seeking to know the truth. I received my answer, in a quiet manner, that assured to me that this Gospel is true, and that I have always known that, since I was a child. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet and that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ and His divinity. I know that I am a daughter of God and through the Atonement and Gospel of Jesus Christ I can return to live with God someday.

How I live my faith

I participate in my church in several way; mainly by providing music through singing, playing the piano, or conducting in Sacrament meetings. I also go out and serve other members by visiting with them, praying with them, and helping them should the need arise. In the past I have been involved with humanitarian services as well, such as organizing a drive to collect school and sanitation supplies. When I am able to, I also donate time, money and supplies to organizations collecting such things in my area.

Are Mormons Christians?

Yes, Mormons are Christians. Jesus Christ and His Gospel are central to our faith and religion. Everything within our church in based upon His teachings, and we accept Him as our Savior, Lord, Redeemer, and as the son of the living God. Some confusion is understandable because the nickname for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, is Mormons or Mormonism, because we believe that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and that, just like the Bible, the Book of Mormon testifies of Jesus Christ, His divinity, His life, and His Atonement.
