Hi I'm Sammy

I grew up in Utah. I am passionate about dance and teaching dance. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I graduated in 2015 and I just finished my first year of college. I study Modern Dance in school and I absolutely love it. I feel very blessed to be able to study and investigate something that I am so passionate about. I have been teaching dance for about three years now and it brings me so much joy. I love working with the children and helping them develop and grow. It fills me with happiness to see someone working on bettering themselves, whether that be inside the church our outside of the church. I am currently preparing to serve an LDS mission in Florida, Fort Lauderdale and I could not be more excited! I know that the Lord loves me and that He needs me in Florida!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because this church has brought me the greatest joy I have ever felt. Although I grew up LDS, I have chosen to remain a member of the church because I know that it is true and I have felt its influence in my life. In times of trials, anguish, and sorrow I have been able to find joy and peace in the principles of the gospel. I have felt the healing power of the Atonement of Christ in my life. He knows what I have been through and is there to carry my burdens with me. He is my greatest friend and the only person who knows exactly what I have gone through. And the best part is that He completely understands how everyone who has lived, is living, or will live has ever felt. He knows our sorrows, our pains, our joys, and our trials. The church has brought me to this knowledge and I would not be here without it. The church truly has changed my life for the better and I know of its truthfulness.

How I live my faith

Some of the best ways to live my faith is by serving. Whether that be at home, with friends, in the ward, or on a mission, there are so many different ways to serve. I find great joy in visiting people in my neighborhood. Just this year I have started to participate in visiting teaching. So, this is where I go and visit other women within the ward. It helps to create a bond and unify the members of the ward as one. Also, it is a good way to reach out to people in our neighborhood who may not be members. O

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

As missionaries, we will come into your home and share with you a message about Jesus Christ and His Atonement. We will teach you about how your Heavenly Father loves you and wants you to return to live with Him. Because Heavenly Father loves you and wants you to return, He has provided a plan that is centered on Jesus Christ which enables all people to return to live with God again. Show more Show less
