Hi I'm Samantha

I grew up in Utah. I run track at Utah Valley University. I am a mormon.

About Me

My name is Samantha! I am a student and I run track at Utah Valley University. I am studying Business Management. I am serving an LDS mission in Canada. I love working out, learning about healthy eating, singing, and playing any instrument I can get my hands on. I love animals, especially horses. I love going to the stables because before entering I could be stressed or irritated with a lot on my mind, and right as a I walk in it gets swept away.

Why I am a Mormon

I love the gospel because It has answers to my questions and I have come to a greater knowledge of where I'm from, where I am going, and what my purpose is here on this earth. When I am frustrated with people or certain situations I always have something to turn back to. I have a perfect Savior who knows me individually and will always be their for me when friends/family/life hurts. There are many times when I don't totally understand a commandment, teaching, etc in the church but I turn back to what I know, I know that Heavenly Father loves me. And because He loves me and knows me perfectly I know he would never lead me astray or put me through sometime I couldn't endure (although it sure gets hard sometime!;). I am obedient because I love him and I know the church is true.

How I live my faith

I am a sunday school teacher! When I got the calling I was super scared because I am young and the people i teach know so much about the gospel and have had so many life experiences. But when I prayed about it I just got the feeling that taught me once again that it is the spirit that teaches and I am just an instrument in the Lords hands so to not worry. I am serving a mission and I am so excited! I am totally nervous for what I will leave behind but excited to help people remember and realize Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost in their lives!
