Hi I'm Jacob.

I grew up in Arizona. I'm a college student. I love to sing. I'm currently serving a mission in Russia, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Arizona as a member of the Church. Through both church and school, i developed a love for singing, reading, and learning. I have sung in many choirs all throughout high school, as well as a special six-man A Cappella group, and now sing in a choirs at my university. I've also come to really love reading books, especially the Harry Potter books and Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series. In college, I'm studying Biochemistry and hope to become an Biochemist after i return from the Mission i am currently serving for the Church.

Why I am a Mormon

Over the course of my life, growing up in the Gospel, I have seen countless blessings. The greatest single blessing that has come as a result of the Gospel, is the knowledge that my family can live Together Forever! I love my family so much, and we have grown so close together over the years. I can't imagine life after this without my Family around me. The prospect of life after this (or no life after this at all) without my sisters, brothers, and parents around me (not to mention my own family i one day hope to have) is just depressing! But through the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ, we DO have that possibility, and thats something I'm not about to give up! :)

How I live my faith

I can live my faith at home simply by doing the things i am asked to do- living the commandments, doing kind things for those around me, and fulfilling all of my assignements from Church leaders. In the past, I was abe to serve others by visiting them a few times a month, sharing a spiritual message or thought- the most recent words of the Prophet and the Apostles, or something i have recently learned from the Book of Mormon, etc. :) Currently, I am serving the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and the people of Russia by serving a Full-time Mission. I left school, i left my home and my family and friends, so that i could devote 100% of my time for 2 years so share this gospel that i love so much with other people. I love it so much, and i dont know of any greater way to share my faith and my testimony with others. :)

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

The Missionaries are great! When they visit your home, they will talk about Jesus Christ and his Atonement. The message they will share with you is wonderful! It is a message of hope, and of faith, and of Joy. They will also teach about the Plan of Salvation, our Heavenly Father's plan that helps all of us return to Him! How wonderful is that!?
