Hi I'm Sam Jameson

I live in a small town of 515 people, Big feesh always seem to kiss my lure, Basketball is my sport. Oh yeah I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi, my name is Sam! Right now I am on a mission out here in the glorious California Republic and I LOVE IT! If I am not out knocking doors or sharing my testimony with others you can find me in 1 of 3 places! 1) Out on the lake fishing with my fishing partner/ net man! 2) On the court playing some basketball 3) out playing disc golf!

Why I am a Mormon

My question is WHY NOT!? Its the CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST! Now for me I haven't always known this truth. For me I have always grown up the this church but i more or less went because that is what my family did and i enjoyed being with them. While I would attend church and physically be there, my mind mentally was not there. I would be more focused on who is texting me or what the score to my Dallas Mavericks or Dallas Cowboys games. And it wasn't until i actually picked my head up and started to listen to the wonderful spirit that is felt in church services that i finally came to know of these glorious truths for myself! And not only that but once i started to pray on my own I began to see answers to my prayers! And as i read the scriptures which i know to be the word of God I actually started to see questions that I had answered! Like How can I grow closer to the Savior? Where can I turn to for strength when temptation comes? "God what is your will for me?" Its amazing how once I actually applied my self to the small and simple things like 1) Going to church and participating 2) Getting on my knees and really praying with a sincere heart and real intent 3) And reading the word of God (Scriptures) has blessed me, lead me, and guided me to who i am to do and will continue to guide me for the rest of my life!

How I live my faith

For me I personally have the best opportunity in the church! And that is to leave all personal affairs behind and lose myself in the Lords work as a Representative of Christ as a Missionary! I Have come to know my Savior over these months out here as I have come to follow His example more fully in my life! I think my Dad said it best "Now son you cant just talk the talk, you gotta walk the walk!" And it has been that as I have come to walk the same path that our Savior has walked that I have found what TRUE HAPPINESS IS! The Savior said it himself "Those who will lose their life for my sake shall find it." Losing myself in the same work that the Savior was so anxiously engaged in as he was here (Helping others in ALL WAYS) Is the same work that I have the honor of doing! The only problem that i face as a missionary is these CONSTANT FACIAL CRAMPS FROM SMILING ALL DAY! Seriously! I have never been so happy in my life! I have also never been as tired as I am, and yet I have never felt so alive! Follow the savior. For its the ONLY WAY!
