Hi I'm Samantha Reintjes

I'm from Las Vegas but a Midwest girl at heart. I'm a competitive distance runner. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I grew up in west Michigan and have had a love for the Lake Michigan coast ever since. Stormy days are my favorite. I attended High School in Las Vegas where I discovered my passion for distance cross country and track running. I've been hooked ever since. I then accepted a scholarship the run for a small private catholic school in Milwaukee. I was the only Mormon at my college and it only reinforced my decision to serve a mission. I'm now preparing to serve a full time LDS Mission in the New York Utica Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I have chosen to be a Mormon because I am thoroughly convinced that it is the key to happiness and I know that there is nothing else in this world so true or that can bring so much happiness to a person's life. Also because I know I have a Heavenly Father and that Jesus Christ is a real person and I love them and want to show them that by fully following the gospel that they prepared for me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith everyday by making right choices every chance I get, even when it is unpopular. I also try to fill my life with things that are uplifting and bring joy and the spirit. I find that when this is my focus, life tends to be so much easier and more enjoyable. I'm now preparing to leave everything and the life I have now to share the message of this gospel with those who have not had the privilege to know it as I do. I could not be more excited for this opportunity.
