Hi I'm Sam

I'm a child development major, a student, and a violinist. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to play the violin.I just returned a few months ago from my mission in England and Wales, and can't find enough Cadbury in America to keep me happy. I'm also majoring in Child Development studies at BYU-Idaho. It's fantastic.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because I've studied the scriptures, learned about Jesus Christ, and then prayed to God to know if what I learned was true. He told me that it was. I was raised in this faith, but I had to get my own testimony of the gospel. It's not easy to know anything for certain nowadays, but God has always given me enough that I can feel confident in Him, and I'm sure He'll always be there. He's never let me down.

How I live my faith

I try to make time every day to remember how much the Lord has done for me, and to give a little bit back to Him. I want to be a true disciple of Christ--I look for opportunities to serve others and share at the same time how much the Saviour Jesus Christ has done for me. I love being a Mormon! It's so fun!

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is another testimony of the Saviour Jesus Christ. It is an ancient record about God's dealings with the inhabitants of the Americas. To me, the Book of Mormon shows that God loves His children all over the world, and that His Son, Jesus Christ, is the Saviour of all men everywhere. It teaches me the ways that I can draw close to God, and in the simplest of terms it helps me to truly understand what Jesus Christ did for me and what He can continue to do for me--it spells out how to gain faith, why we should repent, how to be baptised and receive the Holy Ghost, and how the Lord will help us to endure any hardships or trials that we face in this life. It is an amazing record of the truth of God. The Book of Mormon is unique and precious to me. Its precepts have brought me greater joy in my relationships with those around me. I know it's true.
