Hi I'm Sammy

I grew up in California. I love sports. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been a mormon my whole life. I have an awesome family that I love. My brothers and I grew up playing sports with each other and we had a lot of fun times. I graduated high school and I'm preparing to serve a 2 year mission to Ecuador.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of this church because I know it is true. I was born into this church because my parents were members and for a while I was mormon because I knew they wanted me to be. They always taught me about the church and what's right or wrong, but as I got older I realized i needed to choose for myself whether or not I would stay in the church. All my older siblings seem to have gotten their own answer and so I needed my own. I read the Book of Mormon and I prayed about it to God to know if it was true. I got my answer and I know it is true because there is a feeling I get every time I read it. This feeling comes from the Holy Ghost telling me it is true. Now I know that the Book of Mormon is true I also know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet who really did see Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I was called to teach the 7 and 8 year olds in my church and I loved being able to help them understand more about what we believe. It was always fun preparing the lesson I would have for them each week and they would always do an awesome job of listening and participating. I am super grateful for that opportunity that I had to teach them.
