Hi I'm Samantha

I grew up on the island of Oahu. I am currently getting ready for a mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am from Hawai'i, Oahu. I love to Hike and be active. My passion is photography. I love to smile :) I grew up as a Mormon and is currently getting ready to serve a full time mission.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was 8 I was baptized into to the church but it wasn't until I was almost 18 and got ready to serve a full time mission that I really wanted to know if the church was true. I had many trials as I was growing up in my High School years. I had many questions on what I should do next. If one I should go to college and start my career, find a righteous man and get married in the Temple. Or two should I go on a mission? This was very hard for me to decide. It wasn't until I got my Patriarchal Blessing when I knew what I had to do. At first I didn't like the answer I got. Which was to go on a full time mission. But through the power of prayer and help from family, I was able to get my head on straight. I am now getting ready to serve a full time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I know with all my heart that this is the right decision for me. I may not know why my Heavenly Father wants me to go on this mission but I know for a fact that great blessings well come when I serve my Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I live my faith with love and gratitude. Through striving to be like Christ, I look for many opportunities to show my love for people. More importantly, I live my faith by living what I believe. I am not perfect, but I strive to be the best that I can and live my life by example.
