Hi I'm Samantha Eldredge

I grew up pm a farm in Eastern Idaho, in a small town of Shelley. I have been born and raised as a Mormon and love it.

About Me

I was born and raised on a farm and ranch. I am a cowgirl at heart. I love anything from riding horses, chasing cows, being in the mountains, to snowmobiling and skiing in the winter, and boating and dirt biking in the summer. I'm a girl who would rather be working in the dirt, on ATV's, or anything outside instead of shopping. I guess I love the country and the mountains and outdoors.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been raised in the LDS church my whole life. I was taught at a very young age that this was the true church and so I believed it. My freshman year in college, I finally came to know this is the Restored Church, and the true church. I was able to fall away from the gospel where I realized the happiness the spirit and the church gives me. I learned that my Heavenly Father loves me no matter what roads I go down, no matter what mistakes are made. I am so grateful that I have a Father in Heaven that one day I can return to him and be with him and my family for eternity.

How I live my faith

I love being part of the singles branch in my hometown. It has given me the oppurtunity to teach those around me but let people learn the things I am learning also.
