Hi I'm Sam Daw

I grew up in Orem, Utah, I have a black belt in Hopkido, and I am going on a mission to Iceland. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi, my name is Sam Daw, and I grew up in Orem Utah. I love to learn about History, I especially am fascinated with World War II history. I like to play and create board games, particularly, war games. I study martial arts and have recently got my Black Belt in Wonjin Hopkido. I also have just graduated from Orem High school, and plan to go to BYU Idaho for college.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been in this church my whole life, and it has changed me for the better. Several people often say that they don't know what kind of person they would be without the church, I do, and I am so grateful that I am not that person. I have felt the Spirit testify many truths to me, such as Jesus is the Christ, and Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, and that Thomas S. Monson is also a prophet of God. I know that the Book of Mormon is the most true and correct book on earth. This church means everything to me, I hold it in the highest regard. I am so blessed to have been born into the church, but I too had to decide if this church was true, after reading the Book of Mormon and praying about it, I received a testimony from the Holy Ghost that it was a true book. So I stayed in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Being in the gospel has blessed my life, and will continue to bless my life, so that is why I am a member of this Church.

How I live my faith

I'm a home teacher, I teach with my Dad as my companion, and I love it! We teach four families every month about the gospel and help them become the best they can be. I also love to do service, we often do service projects in our youth group, helping those who need help the most. I have been the counselor and president of several groups or quorums in the church. So I have helped organize several youth activities, and have taught several lessons from those callings and have always loved doing it. I also study the Book of Mormon on a daily basis, and I learn new things every time I read, especially about Christ.
