Hi I'm Sam Jacobsen

I'm from Washington, I love geography, and I'm a sports fanatic. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Utah, and have lived in Illinois, North Carolina and Washington. I call Washington home. Currently, I'm serving a two year mission in Italy, but I attend Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. I love playing and watching sports, namely soccer, and I really like studying geography.

Why I am a Mormon

I've been asked this question many times in my life. It comes down to a couple things. The first, naturally, is that I was born into the church. I've always been Mormon. However, that doesn't mean that I've never questioned anything. I'm a Mormon because I've figured out for myself that this is God's on the earth by study and by prayer. I love the idea that you can know with a certainty if this church is true by putting the Book of Mormon to the test - so I studied and prayed about it. No matter what, I can't say the Book of Mormon is false, therefore the church is true.

How I live my faith

I am a missionary now in the Italy Milan mission. I live my faith by doing my best to share it with everyone I can. Its an amazing feeling to be a servant of the Lord and I can't wait to go about these two years in the Lord's service. I look forward to seeing the joy of others as I help to bring them closer to Christ.
