Hi I'm Samantha

I grew up in Idaho. Music is my life. I am serving a mission in Santa Rosa, California. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Idaho, and have lived in the city of Meridian most of my life. I love to bake, ski, be outdoors, and spend time with my family and friends! Music is my life. I love to sing and play piano, violin, guitar, and ukulele! On my days off you might find me curled up in a blanket watching a chick flick, or learning a new song on my guitar. I have four sisters, and three brothers who mean the world to me. I grew up in a mixed family, and I love them with all of my heart. I am currently serving a full time mission in the California, Santa Rosa mission. When I get home I plan on attending the University of Utah to study pediatric nursing.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the gospel makes me happy! I grew up a member my whole life, but that does not mean my whole life has been easy. Not all of my family is Mormon, and that's another reason why I hold on to the gospel so tight. It is not just a religion, it is how I choose to live my life. We all have trials, we all have ups and downs, but when we pray to our Father in Heaven, He will help us. He will lift us up. He is constantly pouring down blessings upon us, but it is up to us to put away our umbrellas and let God bless us. I know the Book of Mormon to be the word of God. I know that whenever I need guidance, I can turn to the words inside. I love my Heavenly Father, and I know He loves us each individually. The gospel has blessed myself, and my family in so many ways. The church will always be my light, and my way of life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being an example to those around me. I live my faith by serving a full time mission, and sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ to everyone I come in contact with. I know it to be true, I live it, and I love it! I am grateful to be serving a mission, and I am grateful I get to wear Jesus Christ's name on my badge every day!
