Hi I'm JaCoby Marston

I am extreme couponer! I love to cook and play the violin. I am currently attending college to be an accountant. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to share my talents with others. I love to cook because it is a great way that I am able to express myself plus, I know that my cooking brings joy to others. I love to play the violin. I have been playing the violin since I was 11 years old. I also have a coin collection with over 2000 coins in it. I am currently attending college studying Accounting with the hopes to become an International Accounting Lawyer and return back to Hong Kong to work since, I do speak Cantonese. I am also what they call an "extreme couponer" which means that I can get candy bars to pizzas for really cheap. I love to travel. I have traveled to Hong Kong(was a missionary there for 2 years), Beijing and Xian(China), and also this past summer (2013)- I went to Disneyland and St. George, UT. I love watching movies, I usually watch at least 2 to 3 new movies each week which is a great way to relax.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because this gospel has help me change so much into the person I am now. The gospel of Jesus Christ causes you to want to have that desire to improve and change and become a better person. I have learned that from the gospel of Jesus Christ is that I need to constantly improve and become more like him. I love that when I am keeping the commandments, Heavenly Father takes really good care of me and always makes sure that I accomplish my personal goals. With out fail, as long as I am doing my part, Heaven Father WILL always fulfill his end of the deal. I love being able to go to church and improve my knowledge about the gospel of Jesus Christ because at church I am able to find answers to my questions and I am able to feel the spirit when I go because that is where God wants me to be. God loves all of his children no matter what you have done or where you have been, he understands that life is difficult, all he asks of us is to come unto him with a broken heart and a contrite spirit and he will make us whole in the gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by setting goals each day to become more like Jesus Christ. This life here on earth is extremely hard but, I know that if I keep the commandments and do what God wants me to be doing then, I will be successful in accomplishing all of my goals. I know that God gives us challenges to make us stronger because without them, we wouldn't know how to grow and become a better person. Heavenly Father knows that we are not perfect that is why we are here on earth is to learn from our mistakes and try our very best to be better each and every day. Something that I am trying to do is to focus more in the present and take one day at a time because that is what the savior did, he created the world one day at a time. So, I face my challenges daily and take them one day at a time and the next thing I know it is that those challenges have disappeared completely. Trust in God and he will take care of you.
