Hi I'm Kaycee Sampson

I am from Utah, I love reading, being outside, and having fun. I love my family and music. I'm a Mormon and I love it!

About Me

I have just recently been called to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the Texas Houston East mission. I am so excited! I love my family so much. They are my best friends. I just finished my first year of college at Snow College. I love singing and anything music related. I play the flute, piano, and ukulele. I also enjoy cooking, reading, playing sports, and spending time with my nieces and nephew. I love to learn! I love the gospel of Jesus Christ. He is everything to me.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I have been a member of the church my whole life, I have been given the choice to continue in this church. Around the age of 12, I read the Book of Mormon all the way through for the first time. After I finished, I took the challenge found in Moroni 10:3-5. I prayed to know that the Book of Mormon was true. I was filled with a quiet, but sure reassurance that I was choosing the right. I know that everyone who has that desire to know whether this gospel is true or not needs only ask. God will give an answer.

How I live my faith

I love serving people! It is the best feeling knowing that you have been able to make some kind of a difference in someone's life. For a while, I was looking for a big project and I was wondering how I could best use my time to serve. Well, I am serving the people in Texas as a missionary. It is the best! I am able to teach, testify, and show everyone around me on a daily basis what I believe in and why I believe in it. I am able to go out with another missionary everyday and help people better their relationship with Jesus Christ and our loving Heavenly Father. What better service is there?

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Kaycee Sampson
No, we don't worship Joseph Smith. Joseph Smith was a prophet of God just like the prophets in the bible (like Abraham, Noah, Moses, etc.). The prophets reveal teachings and principles to the world directly from God. Joseph Smith was the prophet who, through revelation from God, restored or brought back the same Gospel and teachings that Jesus Christ taught while he was on the earth. We follow and continue to teach these same doctrines. Show more Show less
