Hi I'm Samantha Healey

I grew up in Utah. I have been called to serve an LDS mission in Fukuoka, Japan. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a girl who loves anything that triggers your imagination. I love to draw, paint, read, watch movies and spend time outdoors. Starry skies, blanket forts, and food are some of my favorite things. My beautiful family is my biggest love and support. I am currently serving a mission in Fukuoka, Japan.

Why I am a Mormon

My whole life has been filled with experiences that shaped my testimony of this church. I was taught the gospel before I can remember and it has always held the highest place in my heart. As I grew older, I asked Heavenly Father in prayer to help me receive a testimony of Jesus Christ. After studying his life in the scriptures and obeying the commandments as obediently as I was able, I came to know that Jesus Christ lives and that he loves me. As my testimony grew, I also came to know that he came to this earth to atone for our sins and overcame spiritual and physical death for all of us. When I have the spirit with me my trials are easier to bear. With this gospel, I can see clearly and feel peace. I know that Heavenly Father answers my prayers and doesn't leave me comfortless. I am a Mormon because I have asked my Heavenly Father, and know that this church contains the fullness of the truth.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving others in my community. My favorite experience serving my community was becoming a Special Needs Youth Counselor. I was able to meet with youth that had special needs every week at Special Needs Mutual and become a friend to them. I am now serving as a missionary in Fukuoka, Japan where I teach and serve every day.
