Hi I'm Jacob

I am married with 2 kids.

About Me

I was born in Albany, Oregon, United States. My parents divorced when I was two and my Mom, Brother, and I lived in Florida. I was baptized a member of The Church of Jesus Christ when I was eight years of age. I grew up a member and served a two-year mission in the Arizona Mesa Mission. I am happy and married with two boys. I find joy serving others. Our boys are learning as much as they can about the world around them at home, church, and school.

Why I am a Mormon

I had a difficult childhood and adolescence. I found truth and peace in The Church of Jesus Christ. This truth gave me guidance through troubled times and hope, courage likewise during times of uncertainty. When I was 21, I knelt on a cold cement floor of a small apartment in Provo, Utah. I prayed to my Heavenly Father with an extensive desire to know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God. I too asked if The Book of Mormon was the word of God. The warmth of a loving Heavenly Father entered me in answer to prayer. From that moment, I have been firm in the testimony of Jesus Christ and his restored church.

How I live my faith

My faith in the Living Christ is strong by continued service to his children. I work in our home Ward Mission to teach strength of character and moral virtue by accepting the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ. I continue in the perfect example of Christ by giving selfless service to others and loving the purity of youth. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is headed today by a living Christ. His appointed servant Thomas S. Monson is the Prophet to the world. The Book of Mormon is, as stated on its front cover, "ANOTHER TESTAMENT OF JESUS CHRIST".
