Hi I'm Samantha

I grew up in Garden Grove, CA. I'm a wife, a mom, an entrepreneur, a cook, and a seamstress. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love being a mom! It's the greatest thing that I've ever been able to do. It's definitely the hardest part of my life too. But it's so worth it! I also love being a wife. I enjoy cooking and sewing, but I also love creating new ideas for businesses or things I can sell. I've been able to successfully create several businesses selling jewelry, wooden letter boards, and baby clothing. I went to Brigham Young University and studied Early Childhood Education. I hope to one day be able to open my own preschool. I love kids; I learn so much from them.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up as a member of the LDS church. I've had some trials throughout my life that have shaped me into the person that I am today. I've had so many experiences when I've felt the Holy Spirit of God touch me and help me know that the Gospel of the LDS church is the true word of God here on this earth. The trials and hardships of my life have definitely shaken my faith at times, but because I have had so many good experiences and felt the Spirit so strongly testify of the truthfulness of this Gospel, I have been able to get through the hard times and still hold on to my faith. The Book of Mormon is the true word of God. Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, despite his imperfections. Jesus Christ is our Savior, and it is through His atonement that we can live with Him and our Heavenly Father again and our families after this life. I know these things because I have felt the Holy Spirit manifest the truthfulness of them as I've searched and prayed to know the truth.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as the secretary with the Young Women organization (girls ages 12-18) at church. I am able to teach lessons about Christ and attend weekly activities with the girls where we get to know each other and bond.
