Hi I'm Sam

I am from Idaho. I'm serving my mission in the North Dakota Bismarck Mission! I like playing the piano and helping people.

About Me

Hello! I have gone to two semesters at BYU-I. It was a pretty incredible experience being surrounded by fantastic people. I am preparing to serve a mission at this time and am leaving pretty soon. I like to be around people and animals. Playing the piano is one of my interests. I never enjoyed it at first, but something clicked for me, and now I can't get enough.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of how it makes me feel. There have been many times in my life where I have felt insignificant and just downright bad about myself. Even though these times are inevitable in our lives, I always get to think about the standards of our Church and feel the comfort and peace that are intertwined with it. I know that this Church is true. It is unavoidable to look past in order to be happy. I know that Jesus is the Christ, and that He died for us to become better people and to live again. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and real. There are many stories within it that make me tingle every time I read and reread them. I know that Thomas S. Monson and all the prophets before him were true prophets. Their counsel is correct and pertains so much to our lives' in this generation. I am grateful for my family and know that we can live together forever if we live righteously. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I'm serving a mission now in North Dakota! So there ya go! It's a pretty awesome thing to do, I can't think of anything else that would be this great! I guess before my mission, I would go to church and look for ways to serve in my church group! Reading the scripture early in the morning is definitely something that directs my day to the Lord and what He would have me do. There are a lot of times where that has been my saving grace is having His hand in my life.
