Hi I'm Samuel Nelson

I play soccer. I love to sing. And I'm a Mormon

About Me

I love being athletic and playing sports. My favorite sport easily is soccer. Then I also love to run and have run cross country in high school and love playing frisbee. I also like to read and spend time with my friends. I am the oldest of 5 kids and I love hanging out with my family as well.

Why I am a Mormon

This church means a lot to me mostly because of my experiences. I was born in to this church and when I was younger I never really understood why everything we talk about is so important. But as I got older I wanted to find out and as I have searched and read the scriptures and prayed to ask my Father in Heaven I have found that this church, and all the things we teach and talk about, are true. And that they bring so much happiness and purpose to life. I used to think that life didnt have a point. To live and die. But understanding these things give me a great hope of the things that will come after.

How I live my faith

There are a lot of negative influences in the world that try to have us do some really bad stuff and sometimes those can be kind of scary. I am always doing my best to not only stand against those influences by living the commandments and keeping my standards but also by trying to help others stand against those things as well. I am currently serving as a full time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Doing this has been one of the greatest blessings I have ever had in my life because I get to spend all my day, time and efforts spreading this gospel and the good news it brings to all who I can, helping them realize that through Jesus Christ we can be with our familys for longer than just this life. The gospel is one of the greatest sources of joy for me and I love helping others realize the happyness it has as well.
