Hi I'm Samantha Lynne Thomson

I grew up in Las Vegas. I live in Utah. I love musical theater. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the only girl with six brothers. I love Disney and performing in theater, musicals, in church, etc. I just finished a year of college up at BYU Idaho and had a blast. I am studying to be an elementary teacher with an emphasis in math. I LOVE soccer and could watch it all day with my family. My family also loves to travel and eat good food together :)

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up in the church, it has always been a big part of my life. I love the happiness and peace this gospel brings. I know that there is a God and that He loves all His children. I know that He sent His son Jesus Christ to suffer for all our sins. I know that because of that I can try again and again. I can be forgiven for my mistakes and return to live with my Heavenly Father. I know that I will be with my family forever, this life is not the end. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

How I live my faith

I loved performing in high school and being a part of the musical theater community growing up. I would also perform in church monthly. I played a big part in my youth program where I was almost always helping teach, organizing activities, and trying to get the other girls involved. Once I graduated high school and went up to Idaho for school I helped with the family history for my singles ward. Helping others find their ancestors was really fun for me.
