Hi I'm Samantha

I am a Utah native. Lover of Thai food and pretty dresses. I love playing tennis and snapping photos. I am a Mormon!

About Me

Hello, my name is Samantha! I grew up in Utah and it will always be home. As a child and throughout my teenage years, I loved trying new things. In high school, I joined the tennis team and it become one of my favorite hobbies. I also found a passion for photography. After high school, I pursued a career in dental assisting and loved helping our patients improve their oral health. Currently I am serving a mission for the church here in sunny Southern California!

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptized when I was eight years old. Even though I was little, I think I already knew the Church was true. However, throughout my life I have had experiences that have strengthened my faith. I prayed about the Book of Mormon and have received the answer it is the word of God through the power of the Holy Ghost. I also came to know by this same power that Jospeh Smith is a true prophet! By living the gospel everyday, I have found deep purpose and satisfaction in life. There is just NO WAY this church isn't true!

How I live my faith

Before my mission, I taught the three and four-year olds in my neighborhood the gospel each Sunday at church. I loved helping these children learn about Jesus and how they can start to follow him. Right now I am a full-time missionary for the church! It has been the hardest, yet most rewarding experience of my life so far! I love meeting new people everyday and helping them find truth. I love telling them about Jesus Christ and the hope only he gives to the world! Everyday I strive to keep the commandments and become like Christ because I know this is the only way to find true joy in this life and the life to come.
