Hi I'm Samantha

I grew up in Mesa, Arizona. I am a licensed Cosmetologist. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest of four. I am a recent High School graduate. I am a licensed Cosmetologist. I love doing people's hair and making them feel beautiful.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have never been happier! This gospel has brought me many joys. Reading The Book of Mormon I have come to know it's truths. I love how strong I can feel the spirit at church, through service, and even in my own home. I know for myself that this is the one and only true church. That today's prophets and apostles give us direct revelation from God. I know God loves each and everyone of us, and that he sent His son to die for us so that we could make it back to him again. Christ is our Redeemer. He is our brother. Through Joseph Smith, God was able to restore the gospel back on the earth so that we could have it today. I don't know what I would do without knowing or even not be able to even feel what this gospel has brought me throughout the years. I am blessed to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

How I live my faith

I love to serve! I love getting to teach young children of the gospel, sharing what I know to be true every Sunday! I visit with my neighbors and church friends monthly, not only sharing my faith with them but also helping them and offering service to them with whatever they may need. As a youth, I grew up planning and organizing many events for the youth in my community. I have learned the importance of service and am grateful for an service opportunity that I encounter.

What are Mormon temples used for?

Samantha
With temples many families have the opportunity to be sealed together for eternity. A temple is a house of the Lord. It provides a place of peace and comfort. A special spirit resides in these temples. Temples are sacred and provide ordinances such as baptism, for those that didn't receive the chance. Show more Show less
