Hi I'm Samie Jensen

Hello! They asked me to keep this short and sweet sooo.... I'm Samie Jensen and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Well hi again! A little about me.. I grew up in San Antonio, Texas. I was baptized into the church when I was 10 years old. When I was hit with the awful puberty stage of my life, I decided to become rebellious.. and looking back on it, I know the only way I am where I am today is because of my loving Father in Heaven, and my dear brother, savior, and friend, Jesus the Christ. They keep an eye out for all of us. Trust me. I will serve a mission in August and I am so excited!!! I can not wait to serve the Lord.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have never been able to find more truth than I do sitting in sacrament meeting, reading my scriptures, or praying to my Father in Heaven. I KNOW that He loves me and he loves every one of us. He knows us. He knows the desires of our hearts. He hears our pleas and answers our questions. He loves us enough that he sent his only begotten son to atone for us. To literally give his life for us. I know without a doubt that this is true. I know that this gospel is true. This, and many, many, more reasons is why I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith obediently. If you don't know much about Mormons, we have a lot of "rules", otherwise known as commandments... WELL. How I've come to see it, is these rules that my father in heaven set for me and you and everyone on this earth, he did so because he knows what will help me to be truly happy. I had to go through a lot, and I mean a LOT before I came to this conclusion. I've done more than a fair amount of disobedience, rebellion, and outright denying my beliefs in order to seem "cool" to peers... and, I was miserable. I tried to pretend I wasn't miserable, but keeping up a facade gets old... I have never been happier than I am now. I have been obedient and I have been blessed. Let me give a bit more information about myself really fast.. I am the second oldest of 6. And my siblings are the greatest. My mother is my best friend. I have an amazing job at a financial consulting firm that I was incredibly fortunate to get at the young age of 18. I have amazing friends, and I have struggling friends and family that I want to be here for. I am active in my community's musical theaters, and I dance at a studio that I love and look forward to every week. And I am 18 years old, and I am going to leave all of this behind when I turn 19. I am going to give everything I can for the Lords service. This is how I live my faith.
