Hi I'm Sam Schulthies

I grew up in Utah. I love nature, animals, art, science and computers. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love working with computers and fixing things. I have an interest for mostly anything science related, I love Science. Hiking is fun, but I don’t do it very often, haha. Art is also something I enjoy. I’m not good at creating it though, but I’m working on on that. Video games are pretty fun for me, I enjoy mostly the Nintendo stuff. I’m interested in exploring career opportunities in Computer Engineering/Science, Film Animation, and Architecture. I’m going to leave for an LDS mission November 15th, 2017, so those things will need to be put on hold. I love animals too, to the point where if I were to go hunting I’d be taking pictures of the animals instead, haha.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this religion. I’ve gone through some personal struggles and at one point I was leaning far away from the church. I didn’t even realize how far I’d gotten until I came back in. My siblings all left the church, but I’ve stayed in it because I know this is true, and it’s a beautiful thing to live. I’ve felt things they cannot because their faith has waned considerably. They can always come back and receive the blessings I’ve felt, and I keep faith that they will.

How I live my faith

I attend mission prep every Sunday morning at 7:30. After that Church is 3 hours, so it can be a little tough at times, but it’s rewarding. I read my scriptures every night before I go to bed, as well as praying. I also do home teaching, where I teach assigned families church related lessons on the last Sunday of the month.
