Hi I'm Samantha Roan

I'm a Mormon. I live in Provo and I have been called to serve in the California San Fernando Mission.

About Me

I have lived in two states, and two countries. I have traveled to 5 different countries. I love to travel and experience the different cultures the world has to offer. I am a student studying Wildlife and Wildlands Conservation. I truly believe that mountains are the Lords temples along with the 141 operating temples around the world. In my free time I like to quilt and crochet. I also enjoy riding horses, hiking, backpacking, camping, swimming and smiling. I love watching soccer. I am also discovering my love and interest in arthropods. I have been called to serve a mission in California San Fernando.

Why I am a Mormon

I love the hope the gospel brings to my life. I know that no matter what challenges I face there is a loving Heavenly Father always helping me, just as he helps you. I know he has a plan and a purpose for me, just as he does for you. I know there isn't a situation where the Atonement of Jesus Christ doesn't apply. The Atonement is for everyone.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by sharing with anyone who asks the reason for the hope that is in me. I also read my scriptures, pray and look for opportunities to serve others. Joseph Smith said, "I told the Brethren that the Book of Mormon was the most correct of any book on earth, and the keystone of our religion, and a man would get nearer to God by abiding by its precepts, than by any other book." I like to apply the scriptures in my life, and as I do that I see the results that come. Those results serve as a witness to me that when I do live by what the scriptures teach, I am closer to God.
