Hi I'm Jacob

And I'm a 6th Generation Mormon

About Me

I teach Yoga, play Beach Volleyball, work as a Fine Dining Waiter and am a Professional Actor. My wife and I have been married for 5 years; we are looking forward to having children soon. Our kid's will be 7th generation members of the Church. My mothers Great-Great-Great Grandfather had breakfast with The Prophet, in Joseph Smith's home, and joined the Church the following day.

Why I am a Mormon

I know it's true. I have had many personal experiences. It is so very real.

How I live my faith

In the Gap. There's a gap between stimulus and response, and what we do in that gap is who we are. Life is also full of significant moments, going to Church every week could be considered one of these significant things. But, in reality: there are no insignificant moments. I believe that it's actually what we do in-between these events that is the most important.

How is the Book of Mormon different from the Bible? How did Joseph Smith obtain the “golden plates” or Book of Mormon?

Jacob
The Book of Mormon is in many ways no different than the Bible; it is a collection of writings from Prophets who spoke of God and Jesus Christ. We live in a time of negativity and people tend to let go of their dreams. Whenever I read the Book of Mormon I feel like anything is possible. It's not just the stories themselves. There is a spirit of hope and joy and optimism that comes into my life when I read the book. The original record came to Joseph Smith through the ministry of an Angel; the final writer, Moroni--delivered it to Joseph Smith. Amazing! So cool. Show more Show less
