Hi I'm Samantha

Current missionary serving in the Singapore Mission speaking Chinese. I love who I am. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Orem Utah and have been a member my whole life. I have an amazing family of 8 who I love more than anything. They are one of the reasons I am who I am today. I played soccer all through high school on their team and club. After I graduated I attended Southern Utah University in Cedar City studying Nursing. I am now serving a mission in Singapore and couldn't be more excited to share the happiness that this gospel brings me.

Why I am a Mormon

All my life I have grown up in the church. My parents are both members and a lot of my extended family is too, so to gain my own testimony was a little harder since I could always count on them to guide me through my hardships. I absolutely love this church and I love being able to grow closer to our Heavenly Father. I have always had a testimony but I think it is when I moved to college that really made me grow. When you don't live at home everything is literally up to you and with that, I grew stronger. Not living at home meant making all my choices for myself. I met so many amazing people that I admire and grew from. I knew that this gospel is what I needed in my life and I couldnt imagine/didnt want to imagine where I would be without it. This gospel is so beautifully simple, and brings so much happiness into my life. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet and that he restored the truth onto this earth, I am so thankful for him! I know that the prophet we have right now is called of God, and I know that if we trust in his teachings that he will help guide us to the highest kingdom. I know this church is true. I absolutely love this gospel and I wouldn't trade it for anything.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in everything I do. I think that how we choose to showcase ourselves and what we choose to engage in tells us a lot about who a person is. I am currently serving a mission right now and showing faith/having faith is part of my everyday life. I have to have faith to be able to progress and become closer to him. I am constantly striving to show Christ like love to those i'm surrounded with. I love this Church and I love the joy that I get by serving Him.
