Hi I'm Jacob

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently earning my masters in accounting. My goal is to one day run my own business. I love to play basketball, tennis, and golf. I play the piano and guitar, and I attempt to sing along. I believe that good music has the power to change lives for the better. I love to laugh, and I try to be a friend to all. I try to live a simple life, and I believe that I have an extraordinary future.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that the Book of Mormon is true. It was written by ancient prophets, delivered by an angel of God, and translated by a young Prophet called of God to do His work in the last days before the 2nd Coming of Jesus Christ. I feel a sweet peace as I read and study the Book of Mormon. It is God's word, and it was written for me. I know that God truly is my Heavenly Father, and that His Son, Jesus Christ, is my Savior and Redeemer. They know me by name and they are concerned about every aspect of my life. As I open my heart and my life to Them, I feel peace and love. I know They love me, and I love Them. I feel happy as I strive to live the Gospel and teachings of Jesus Christ. I know that I can be forgiven each day as I pray that the Atonement of Jesus Christ be applied in my life through God's grace and mercy. Father in Heaven provides me with knowledge and guidance as I ask Him in faith. There is no greater feeling than to feel His love and desire for my well being.

How I live my faith

I currently am serving with and teaching the young men of the Church in my city. They come from different backgrounds, and some have joined the Church only recently. As I see their dedication to Christ and His Gospel, I find that they are teaching me much more than I am teaching them.
