Hi I'm Samantha

I grew up in Wyoming, I'm serving a full time mission for the LDS Church in the San Diego, California Mission.

About Me

Hello my name is Sammy, I was raised in the LDS church, By the time I was about 12 I believed that this Church is true and when I was around 16 I had a testimony and I knew that this church was true. Since then my testimony has grown and I am now serving a full time mission and I am SO happy. I love my family and they have always been very supportive of me and my decisions.

Why I am a Mormon

For about two years in my youth before I gained my testimony I strayed from the church. I started caring more about worldly things and I looked for happiness in the wrong place, I am a lot of mistakes in my search for happiness which I didn't seem to ever find. I started feeling very guilty and I was afraid to come back to the church because I wouldn't forgive myself I didn't really want to talk about what I had done with anyone and I think a small part of me didn't want to change my ways. When I finally took the steps I needed to repent I when I finally knew that my father in heaven had forgiven me, a HUGE burden was lifted I was finally able to like myself again and not feel so guilty for all I had done, Because of that experience and since that experience my testimony has grown so strong and I know that The LDS Church is true I am so grateful for this knowledge and I want to share it with as many people as I can, so they too can be as happy as I am.

How I live my faith

All threw out my youth I was involved in a youth group for my church and I was often a secretary or sometimes President of said group. After "graduating" from that group I was immediately called to teach the 2 and 3 year old it was very fun and a great learning experience.
