Hi I'm Samantha

I grew up in the city, I'm too obsessed with Star Wars, and I'm a mormon.

About Me

I grew up just outside Washington D.C., and the city is my whole life. I played soccer for ten years, it's the best sport - no questions asked. I love fall, and I firmly believe that hot chocolate with whipped cream can fix just about any problem. I think that rose gold is the classiest color there is, and reading is one of my favorite things to do. I'm especially excited about serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because I need Jesus Christ in my life, and I believe that this church offers the truths that will lead me to Him. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. I've read it, I've prayed about it, and I have received confirmation about it. I challenge you to prove me wrong. If you earnestly read the Book of Mormon with a pure intent to see if it's true or not - you will receive an answer. I know that my Savior lives, I know that Joseph Smith has restored the true church of Jesus Christ, and I know that the peace it brings is the most valuable thing in my life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith imperfectly. I think some people are under an impression that members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, or mormons, think that they are perfect because we believe that our church is true. I firmly believe that this church is the restored church of Jesus Christ, but I am not perfect as living my faith. I go to church every week, I try to study my scriptures daily, but I do make mistakes. The great thing about this church is you don't have to be perfect - and you're not expected to be. Just to try. Because I love this gospel so much, I am about to live my faith by serving a mission for 18 months.
