Hi I'm Sam

I'm a son of a loving Heavenly Father.

About Me

Ultimately, I am who I choose to be. One day I can choose to be a rugby player and the next a pro Netflix viewer. Fortunately, I was blessed with skills for each of those and love to put them in practice as well as learning new ways to have joy. "Men are that they might have joy" (2 Nephi 2:25) At times my skills such as dancing and NOT being sarcastic are less than good but I'm grateful that I have been given the strengths and weaknesses I have which allow me to help others and give them the same joy that I have experienced throughout my life. Although the choices I make and paths I take may vary it will never change the fact that I am a son of a loving God and he has created a way that I can be happy. I am grateful for His plan and the teachings He has given me in order to receive all that He has prepared for me. Life is such a huge blessing and I know that as we are obedient to God we can make the most of each moment.

Why I am a Mormon

Because to me, being a Mormon means to be searching for and on the path to eternal happiness. That is what we are all after, right? happiness? and being a Mormon has helped me realize more fully what happiness is and how we can have it everlastingly, not just temporarily. We all have our different ideas as to what happiness is but God is the only one who knows and has arrived to the point of perfect happiness. With that being said, part of the reason I am a Mormon is because we turn to God in many different ways to find that happiness and as we follow his counsel it works! There an infinite number of reasons I could list that would explain why I am a Mormon but here are just a few: I am a Mormon because it makes me happy and will never be regretted. I am a Mormon because it means that I have a purpose in life and that I am a follower of Jesus Christ. I am a Mormon because it is the best place to find true happiness that isn't temporary. I am a Mormon because it helps me be protected from sadness. I am a Mormon because it is what God wants me to be.

How I live my faith

With my belief and knowledge of God's plan for everyone I joyfully participate in sharing it with others as a full time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I plan on serving full time for two years and hopefully another mission when I'm older. When I'm finished with my two year service I will continue to share my knowledge with others when possible and help them just as Jesus Christ would. Although I'm not perfect as He is I strive to be through thinking and acting as He does. I also make a church attendance, prayer and scripture study a top priority.
