Hi I'm Samantha Jaspers

I was born and raised in Portland Oregon. I am currently attending BYU Idaho and I'm a mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Portland, Oregon which gave me the opportunity to experience a wide variety of what this world has to offer in terms of The Great Outdoors. I love running, hiking, going to the beach, and exploring. I also have a major love for the piano. I could play for hours at a time! I am currently attending BYU Idaho and I will be leaving to serve a mission in Huancayo, Peru in May!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that Christ is my savior and redeemer. He died for me so that I could return to Heaven again someday. I know that Joseph Smith is a true prophet and he really did translate the Book of Mormon and restore the church upon the earth. I know that when i pray Heavenly Father hears and answers my prayers. He gives me answers to questions I have. he gives me comfort, guidance and strength. I know that President Thomas S. Monson is a true and living prophet upon the earth today. If we listen to his counsel he will give us guidance specifically for our day. I am so grateful for this church and for how much its blessed my life.

How I live my faith

I have had a couple different callings ranging from sacrament pianist to temple coordinator. All of helped me draw closer to Heavenly Father by helping me create good habits and providing me with opportunities to feel the spirit.
