Hi I'm Samuel Chavez

I grew up in Denver, Colorado. I love cars and helping others whenever I get the chance to. I am a Mormon!

About Me

I love working on cars, I have been fixing them since I was a little boy. My dad was the one who showed me how cars worked and how to fix the issues they have. I also enjoy playing football. I don't play competitive anymore but if I can get with my friends and play that is a;ways the best. I am 19 years old and will be turning 20 shortly and I am in college. I attend the LDS Business College and it has been the best experience that I have ever had. This school is owned by the LDS Church or "The Mormon Church" I am very proud to say that I am a Mormon. God has blessed me so much and my life has been amazing because of him.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church, by this I mean that my parents had converted to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints before I was born so they raised me in this church and showed my what the church does and what we believe in. Since I was little every Sunday I would go to church and learn something new. Going through my teens years the thing of the world started becoming more interesting to me. I began falling from the church and began doing things of the world and not staying true to all my beliefs. Once I realized this I knew it needed to stop and I needed to get back into church and make a change in my life. When I realized this the opportunity to go to college out of state arose and it would be to a college the church owns. So I took the chance and I left home to go to school. Everyone there was amazing and they had the same beliefs I had. A lot of people I met had gone through similar hardships but found a way to come back and have that happiness I once had. Being around all those people everyday and making friendships with them is what helped me get back into church again and fixing all my past wrongs and feeling that peace and love from God. The happiness that the Church brings me is indescribable and I want everyone out there to feel the same I feel. I know God loves everyone one of us and what the bet for us and will go out of his way to make sure we have a good day and be able to feel the Holy Ghost. I know this church is true and that it will change anyone's and everyone's lives.

How I live my faith

Waking up every morning and starting my day with a prayer is what makes my day. When I pray I always ask to have a good day and to have the Holy Ghost by my side in all my decision making. I live my faith by trying to give back to those that will accept my help. If I see someone struggling with something and I know I can be of help I will help them as fast and as best I can. I will be serving a full time LDS mission. I will be teaching people from different parts of the world about my beliefs and show them the happiness it brings to my life. Studying the scriptures and doing daily prayers is what has helped me continue living happily and I know everyone can feel this way when they feel the love of God in their lives.
