Hi I'm Sam

I grew up in Washington state. I am an Eagle scout, I play guitar, I'm a blue belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the youngest of four children. I just graduated high school and I'll be heading to BYU Provo for college after I serve a two year mission for the LDS church. I love to play guitar, I've been playing for about two years now, and I've almost finished building my own which I started as a school project. I also do Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, I've been doing it roughly for Four years now and I love the strategy involved. I enjoy mountain biking, though I don't go nearly enough to be very good, and I like Backpacking. I haven't figured out what I want to major in or do for a living yet, but I hear you don't do what you expect anyway so I'm not going to worry.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church, both my parents are members and attend every week, along with all my brothers and sisters. I never questioned going to church, I didn't mind going, I went because my parents believed and I trusted them. It wasn't until High School when I began to experience challenges that I developed my own testimony of this church. I began to read the Book of Mormon on my own and listen during church meetings and General conference and everything felt right. I began to know that it was true, and realize that I had always known it was true. I'm a Mormon because I've been blessed so much and I know that I couldn't find this same level of happiness without it in my life.

How I live my faith

I've served in several callings including as a youth family history consultant where I would help people with there family history, and as an assistant cub master where I got to help out with the scout activities each week. Most recently I have been called to serve a mission, where I will go to an area and for two years proselyte and serve those that live there.
