Hi, I am Sam. I always have a blast traveling around LDS Splash.com. It is fun for all LDS Kids!
Have you tried Rachel's Riddles in the LDS Kids games section or would you like to send a riddle to be put on the Jokes page? There is lots to do. I wrote a little about me below. If you want to ask me any other questions, just click here, and I will try and answer them on this page. So check back often!


About me:
Well, my full name is Sam Sillious Seth Sumners. I was born a bunch of years ago and live somewhere. I love to surf (of course) and eating pizza, (my favorite food in the entire world!) My favorite book is one that I made using the pop-up book instructions on LDS Splash.com and I named it "Sam: and his adventures in the Sea"
Well, I am sure you will be seeing me around as you travel the Kids section of LDS Splash.com. Have fun!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dear Sam,
How old are you? Carissa 8

Dear Carissa,
Everyone always asks me that. How old do you think I am?

Dear Sam,
I have a question. What should I do. My pet rat is sick. She might die. Jaycee 10

Dear Jaycee,
That is so sad. I am sorry. I think I would ask my mom or dad what to do. They probably know what is best. I hope this helps! (I love rats!)

Dear Sam,
Thanks for the complement! I like my name to! I am 10 now! I do have a missionary story, I invited my friend to a church activity and to church and she came! She is interested in the church now. I think it is awesome that you have this website! Heavenly Father is proud! ( sorry I didn't get back sooner, I had no idea I sent that!) - Sophie, 10

Dear Sophie,
That is So awesome about your friend. I invited my friend and her family to come over a few weeks ago to listen to the missionary lessons. I don't know if they liked it or not, but they are reading the Book of Mormon now! (I am really excited about that).

Dear Sam,
I am really sorry I always send questions all the time. Well guess what, I am in a play isn't that great! I am a butterfly in it and we have to memorize a song but I memorized it already! Also one day the play is, is on Sunday. I told the director that I couldn't go, it was really hard for me. And so now I know that next year I won't be picked the leading role because we can't have a substitute for the leading role. And next year is the last time I get to be in the play. Because only 3rd and 4th graders get to be in it because you go to a different building after 4th grade. Sorry this was so long. I'm really sorry. - Hadley 8

Dear Hadley,
It is so nice of you to keep writing. I like your letters. That is awesome that you told your teacher about Sunday! You never know, in junior high and high school maybe they won't have rehearsals on Sunday. then you can be a lead part. that would be fun!

Dear Sam,
You are such an amazing person to be representing the church this way! I love this site so much and it teaches me so much? What is your favorite thing about ldssplash.com? Liza, 10

Dear Liza,
Thanks for your nice words! I bet you are and amazing representative for the church too. I am glad you like LDs Splash too. It is my favorite place to come. My favorite thing lately to do on ldsSplash it to go to Mini Envelopes, make a bunch of them (I don't used the scalloped one, it is TOO girly). I make a bunch of mini notes to go with them and give them out at church. Sometimes they are "thank you notes or "how come you weren't at school yesterday" notes. Anyway, it is fun.
Dear Sam,
Are you a real person? - Anne, 10

Dear Anne,
I think someone asked me that before. How could I write you back if I wasn't real? Are you real? I hope so.

Dear Sam,
That is fine that you didn't get back. Guess what, I went to Castaway Bay (an indoor water park) on Christmas day! I also got to color on a T - shirt that said Castaway Bay. And we barely play arcade games but we played them at Castaway Bay. When we were driving to Castaway Bay and I got to watch my new movie I got for Christmas. What did you do for Christmas? Better let you answer more questions. - Hadley

Dear Hadley,
I am glad you aren't mad at me for taking so long to answer. I am glad also that you had a great Christmas. Mine was great too! I got a new surfboard! I always wanted one, now I can have some REAL fun in the ocean, of course I can only go when my parents are with me, but that is cool.

Dear Sam,
Why haven't you answered my question? I sent in my question like 6 months ago!!! Well how many family members live in your house? I have 6.I live in Ohio and it snows A LOT! where do you live?  Does it snow a lot? Do you have family members coming for thanksgiving? My mom's whole family is coming!!! Why I'm so exited is because my mom has 6 brothers and sisters( there are kids to and I'm the oldest cousin.) What grade are you in? I'm in 3rd grade. Well I better let you answer more questions. So long!!! Hadley 8

Dear Hadley,
Sorry I didn't get back sooner! I went on a long vacation with my aunt. It was SO fun, but I am back to LDS Splash now, and am answering everyone's questions. I live by the beach and it never snows. It rains though and gets really windy. I had a great thanksgiving and we had a ton of people over. I had to squish between too cousins and hardly got any potatoes, (I got lots of turkey though, mmmmm). I am in the same grade as my friend Joe, so that is good. I will try not to take a long vacation again, (for a while anyway).

Dear Sam,
I am not a member of the church and I would like to know more. Who is Joseph Smith? Some of my friends are LDS and they were talking about him. I tried to find a kids website on Google about this church and I found you. Please help me find out about your religion. Lily 10

Dear Lily,
That is SO cool that you want to learn about the church. I have two ideas. 1. Check out www.Mormon.org They tell all about Joseph Smith. The other idea is to ask your friends about him and our church. I bet they would love you to come and visit church next Sunday (of course you would have to ask your mom). Well, let me know if those ideas help.

Hi Sam,
Do you ever take a vacation? If you do were do you go mostly? Do you have any siblings? I have a little brother and boy is he annoying! his name is Hyrum, he was named after Hyrum Smith! Hyrum's only 3 so he's pretty young. are you baptized? I am, I got baptized on May 17, so it was not to long ago. Do you have a baby cousin? I do. what are you going to do this summer? hope you will have a good summer. Hadley 8

Dear Hadley,
I don't need to take a vacation since I live by the beach (hee-hee). I don't have any siblings, but I have a dog. He is sometimes annoying too. but I love him anyway. That is awesome that you got baptized. I was baptized too, and it was so cool. I have lots of cousins. and this summer and am going to swim every day that I can.

Dear Sam,
Why do you not add more of the Riddles of Rachel? We get really disconcertedly disappointed, upset, and impatient because we do not really get to see any new Riddles by Rachel. Mata 10

Dear Mata,
Rachel grew up and went away to college! I am heartbroken. Maybe I can talk her into adding a few this summer. I will tell her you are waiting. Maybe that will help.

Dear Sam,
Do you have a brother? Zoe  7

Dear Zoe,
I don't have any brothers, but I wish I did. Do you? 


Dear Sam,

Do you have a section to make animals or other things out of paper? Daren 10

Dear Daren,
You can click HERE to find all the things you can make out of paper on this site. I don't think there are any animals, but there are some cool claws. hope that helps.

Dear Sam,
What do you want to be when you grow up? What is your favorite animal? What is your passion? How many friends do you have? -Rachel 10

Dear Rachel,
I want to be a Marine Biologist when I grow up. I want to study vampire squids, have you ever heard of them? They light up on the tips. They are REALLY cool. And of course that is my favorite animal (but don't tell my dog Bernie). I love the beach and I have a ton of friends. Did I answer all your questions?

Dear Sam,
Do you like to swim , Sam? I like to swim - Brian 5

Dear Brian,
Swimming is one of my FAVORITE things! I live by the beach would swim every day (if my mom would let me).

Dear Sam,
I'm going to get baptized soon. It's going to be on June 1, that's my grandma's birthday. My dad said that when you get baptized it's your rebirthday. so my rebirthday is on my grandma's birthday! How old are you? I'm in 2 grade. which grade are you in? did you get baptized yet? - Hadley 7

Dear Hadley,
That is SO awesome! Yes I was baptized, but not on my grandma's birthday. You are really lucky.

Dear Sam,
Have you ever been to Sea World? I have. Do you have any pets? Rachel 10

Dear Rachel,
I have NEVER been to Sea World, but I live by the sea. I am not sure which is better. They are both fun! Yes, I have a pet. It is a dog named Bernie. He is usually good, but the other day he ate my shoe! what do you think of that.

Dear Sam,
Do you have any missionary stories? - Sophie Sage 9

Dear Sophie Sage
I love your name. It is so fun to say. Yes I have a great missionary story. I was at the beach (of course) and my friend said he liked to read so I told him I would get him a Book of Mormon (I haven't gotten it for hi yet though but I am planning on it). do you have any missionary stories?

Dear Sam,
I think this LDS website is sooo fun! I go here every Sunday. I always wanted a dog, but my parents said that it's takes responsibility. I have a lot of stuffed animals, my little sister has a stuffed fish. Hope u right back!!!!! - Aina, 9

Dear Aina,
I LOVE this website too! I am glad you come and that you wrote me! Bernie, my dog,  IS a lot of responsibility. I still love him though, (even though he tore up one of my shoes last week). So crazy!

Dear Sam,
Do you have any quizzes on here because I love quizzes if not could you give me a quiz. Callie 9

Dear Callie,
There are lots of quizzes on LDS Splash. You can find them HERE. There is Trivia and Rachel's riddles which is fun. But if you want a quiz, I will give you one. Who talks first in the Book of Mormon?

Dear Sam,
Do you have a trampoline in your backyard? Do you have any brothers or sisters? Rachel :-) 9

Dear Rachel,
I don't have any brothers and sisters, but LOTS of cousins. I don't have a trampoline either, but my cousin did and a big storm came and blew it into their big pond! Crazy!

Dear Sam,
I'm not a member of your church can you tell me if there really is a life after this one and if we could really live with our families forever? thanks. John 8

Dear John,
Those are great questions! Yes! There is and we can! For more information you should talk to some missionaries! You can find out more information at www.mormon.org   Hope that helps.

Dear Sam,
What is your favorite food? What is your favorite drink? What is your favorite desert? - Callie 8

Dear Callie,
I love all seafood, like salmon and lobster, do you? My favorite drink is a big chocolate milkshake with whipped cream on top, and I think that is my favorite desert too, I love anything chocolate!
 

Dear Sam,
I have a brother named Sam. He is a soccer player do you play soccer? You are cool. Rachel 11

Dear Rachel,
I love soccer! That is cool that you have a brother named Sam! I have a cousin named Rachel!

Dear Sam,
Where do you live Sam? What ward are you in? Lillian 11

Dear Lillian,
I live by the beach and love it. My wards keep changing, because our town keeps growing. How about you? Has your ward changed names?

Dear Kenzie,
I am a boy of course! But even though I am a boy, I think girls are nice. - Sam

Dear Sam,
Do you have a place that helps with primary talks? Hayley, age 9

Dear Hayley,
Thanks for writing! There are no talks for kids on LDS Splash, such a bummer! But I know someone there and will see if I can get some put on. If I see any put on in the next few months I will let you know! - Sam

Dear Sam,
How old are you? What is your favorite sport? What is your favorite color? What is your favorite church song? What school do you go to? Do you like school? Do you like your school? If you could go any where in the world where would it be? Are you Samoan? I am!! See Yah!!!! Janet, age 10

Dear Janet,
You sure have A LOT of questions! That is O.K. I ask a lot of questions too! Now, let me see...I am as old as my pet dog, Bernie. I am not sure how old he it though. My favorite sport is swimming. My favorite color is blue (the colors of LDS Splash of course!).  My favorite church song is "Armies of Helaman". Do you know that one? It goes "We are as the Armies of Helaman!" and you can sing it really loud without adults getting mad.
             Let's see.. I go to a great school near the ocean and mostly love science, especially when we learn about fish. If I could go ANYWHERE in the world it would be somewhere on the LDS Splash MAP. Maybe travel the Mormon trail to see where the pioneers traveled. (I think I would like to go to Disneyland as well. Did the pioneers go there?). I am not Samoan, but I like Samoans of course. (Especially ones that write me letters!). Whew! did I answer all your questions? Have a great day! - Sam

Dear Sam,
I want u to know that I have one of the cutest dogs ever. His name is DAKOTA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love him so much. Well I have to go eat dinner. Your friend, Jentry, age 10

Your dog sounds SO cool. I love my dog Bernie, too, although he gets into lots of trouble, like yesterday, he chewed up my swimming shorts, and I had to get a new pair! I still love him though! - Sam

Dear Sam,
Exactly how old are you? Where do you live?  - McKenna, age 10

Dear Sam,
Do you like to play video games? Tyler age 9

Dear Sam,
Yo,Sam, what's up ? say u wouldn't happen to have a favorite Book of Mormon character would u ? mines Nephi he's cool. - Michael, Age-10

Michael,
Yes! I have a favorite Book of Mormon character. It is Captain Moroni! He is SO cool. Did you know he was chief captain over ALL the Nephite armies when he was only 25? I cried when I read that he died. PROMISE not to tell anyone though? (especially girls) - Sam

Dear Sam,
Heya! I was wondering, is there a place on LDS Splash that can help girls with their Faith In God award? - Kelsey, 11

Have you ever been baptized - Katelyn age 8

Dear Katelyn,

Dear Sam,
Do you get the FRIEND? If you do what is your favorite story on Friends by mail? And what is the date for it? And also are you older then me? So many kids have asked that so I wanted to too. HOW OLD ARE YOU. Since you love to surf do you live by the ocean? What state do you live in? - Natasha 11 years.

Dear Natasha,
Yes, I get the FRIEND. Did you read that story Hurricane Peace that was in the "Friends by mail" section in October 2005? That was one of my favorites. I have never been in a hurricane. Rozzie seemed pretty brave. I also like looking for the hidden CTR ring, but I can't always find it. Sometimes I look though the Friend ten times and STILL can't find the ring, but sometimes I do, then I feel pretty good about myself.  How old do I look? Do I look older than you?
Sam

Dear Sam,
Do you like to read scriptures or go fishing? - Jessica 8

Dear Jesicca,
I LOVE reading the scriptures. I try and read them every day. I like fishing too. Have you ever tried reading the scriptures while fishing? I may have to try that! - Sam

Dear Sam,
Do you go to church? I think you do because I read all the notes that people sent to you! My favorite sport is swimming too. Do you like to color? Because I do!!! Do you like to sing songs in church? Well, I have to go! Bye -Dallas

Dear Dallas,
Yes, I do go to church. I like it too, and have a really nice teacher. I also like to color (especially, fish and sharks and stuff). Singing is one of my favorite things at church. I have lots of favorite songs, do you? - Sam

Dear Sam,
 I hope you liked my brother, Dallas', letter-he was sooo excited to write to you! Do you ever play with the sharks! What color is your swimsuit? Does this website have any LDS coloring pages? I look forward to hearing from you! - Alexa

Dear Alexa,
I really liked your brothers' letter. It is nice to know someone else likes to color. I don't play with sharks. Don't tell anyone but I am al little afraid of them, I mean, I like to color them and look at cool shark pictures, but I think I would be afraid to really swim with one. My swimsuit is green (with a gray stripe across the bottom). LDS Splash doesn't have any coloring pages to print out, but it does have a place where you can color pages online and print them out. You can find them HERE. Hope that helps, and tell Dallas I said "Hi"! - Sam

Dear Sam,
Do you have a favorite animal besides a dog? Do you have to get up early to go to church? Do you have any friends? - Makayla 10

Dear Makayla,
I like most all animals. I don't think I would ever have a cat though, I like cats, but I don't think they like the water much, and I LOVE the water. YES! I have to get up early to go to church. I get my clothes ready on Saturday so I won't be late. I also have lots of friends, look at all these friends that wrote me letters! So cool! - Sam

Dear Sam,
how many birthday parties have you had and what were their themes?

Dear Gavin,
I am not sure how many birthday parties I have had. Not sure if I had them when I was a baby (can't remember that far back), but my last birthday was a surfing theme. I had a cake the shape of a surfboard and we went swimming at the party. It was a BLAST! (although some of the kids got sun burnt).

Dear Sam,
Where do you live? - Paige 11

Dear Paige,
I live by the ocean. Have you ever been to one? It smells really salty and there are lots of seagulls around. IT is also a good place to fly a kite. There is always lots of wind.

Dear Sam,
Is there any things for concerts? - Katelyn, age8

Dear Katelyn,

Dear Kelsie,
If I am not real, who would be answering this question (hee-hee). If you want to know what I look like you can see my picture at the top of this page. Do you think I am handsome? I probably look more handsome in my church suit. I go to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Do you? I hope so. - Sam

Dear Sam,
How come you look fake and my other messages don't come to you quickly? Or is it just because you drew your picture on the computer and you are out of town? I sure hope you get this message quickly because I go on your website every day and I don't see my name or my message and all I see is McKenna's message not me. Well my name is McKenna but I'm not ten years old I'm just 8 in a half. Well it's time for me to go to church so good by! - McKenna
