Hi I'm Jacob

I am a baseball fanatic a chess master i've been called to serve and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

  I really love baseball i have loved it eversince I was adopted. At the age of 5 i was put into a foster home in Idaho who were loving and caring and supportive in everyway. They took me into their home and loved me and cared about as one of their own. They told me about a Forever Family and how through Heavenly fathers plan families could be together forvever. They introduced me to the LDS church and taught me how to pray. I remember praying one night for the oppurtunity to have a forever family of my own with in the next few days i started receiveing letters and love notes from a family in Washington State, They adopted me and continued to take me to church and teach what was right. Both Families get credit for who i am today. I love to play chess, next to the gospel its what brings me peace, because of the many stratagies that are involved and the difficulty one has to go through in learning it reminds of our life on earth and how we have many different stratagies that we use to deal with our trails that we get in this life. I am currently serving a mission in upstate New york.   

Why I am a Mormon

 Because of the fact that it brings true and everlasting happiness. With the light of the gospel i can find happiness in almost any situation good or bad.  I am a Mormon because i know God Lives that Jesus is the Christ and that the power of prayer works i the Atonement is real and that it works. Knowing all of this gives me the strength to press forward each day knowing that life isnt easy and that we go through so much while on earth but as long as we put my trust in god and move forward with faith and confidence in the future it will all work out. The gospel has helped me in so many ways through out my life and i want to share with everyone who will let me. Because i know that it can bless their lives as much as has blessed mine.

How I live my faith

 I go about my days helping others come unto Christ by sharing the gospel or by smiling at them or by even stopping to help some stranded. I live my faith by being an example in the community in which i reside. Actions speak louder then words, i believe that full heartedly. By being an example and light in the world i can help many others find the joy that i have found. The Gospel. 

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


What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

 We live the Gospel of Jesus Christ and only do those things that are in Harmony with gods will. It should be said we live normal lives, but we only live the way god wants us to. We saty away from the things of the world that might bring only temperary happpiness and focus on things that bring eternal happiness. Like the scriptures. There are mormons in almost every community. We live in the world but not of it. Show more Show less
