Hi I'm Samantha

I grew up in Utah. I'm preparing to serve an LDS Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Throughout high school I participated in theatre, and it still is a great part of my life. I may not be going into it as a career, but I still listen to show tunes every day. During this past school year, I finished my first year of college, and I'm pursuing a degree in Genealogy. I decided to put my college education on hold so I could serve an LDS mission. I couldn't be more excited.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, because the LDS religion brings me peace. I was born and raised into the church. There was a time that I began to fall away from the church. I only went to church meetings to please my parents, and I didn't read my scriptures or say my prayers. That period of time was very dark. Anxiety overtook me, and it felt like I was going crazy. That's when I had a reality check. I brought back praying and scripture study into my life. My mind became at ease. I could think clearly, and my anxiety was gone. I know the church is true. I know that Christ is the Prince of Peace. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God, and that the Book of Mormon is true. After reading it many times, I can testify that it is another testament of Jesus Christ. I know that President Nelson is our prophet today.

How I live my faith

Family History is one of the ways I live my faith. I've become very knowledgable of the church's Family Search site. In my past two wards I've been called as a Family History Consultant, so if a ward member needed any help I was available to answer questions. How I use Family History to live my faith is I continue to add to it. If I find holes, then I search to find out who is missing. I don't want anyone to be forgotten, because I know that families can be together forever. I don't want anyone to miss out on the blessings of having an eternal family.
