Hi I'm Sammy

I am from West Jordan, Utah. I grew up in Pocatello, Idaho. I'm half- Korean. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I just finished my first year in college and my major is in Criminal Sciences. I like to be outdoors and in the Mountains. I love to swim and I swam competitively in high school for three years. I love fishing, hiking. going on road trips, and traveling. I am the oldest of three kids, I have one sister and one brother. Right now I am preparing to serve as a missionary in South Korea.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and I was raised Mormon. However, there was a time in my life when I was lost, and I stopped depending on my parent's testimonies. I became my own person, and I personally didn't know how I felt about the church. I did not always agree with certain principles and doctrines that are outlined in the gospel. Then over the course of many months I found myself in complete darkness. Even in a room full of people and closest friends, I felt alone. Looking back on what I had been taught as a child, I felt to kneel and pray from some rescuing and comfort. It was the first time in my life (and yet I was in my late teens) when I prayed and I knew someone was listening. I continued to pray and feel the same comforting feelings that I had that first day. I started going back to church, paid attention in seminary and church lessons. it's indescribable the brilliant change that I saw instantly in my life. I could not deny the gospel of the Lord. I know it's true. I know that the Lord has a plan for all of us, and that even in the darkest of days, he is the light that we need to search for. I am grateful for the knowledge that I have. I'm so grateful for it that I am willing to share my knowledge with others on my mission.

How I live my faith

My ward likes to put together activities during the week at local parks and complexes. I like to attend as well as plan some of them for a fun time to get to know others in my ward as well as others in the community. I visit women in my ward once a week and I strive to keep in touch with them and become better friends.
