Hi I'm Jacob Knudson

I have lived in Salt Lake City Utah. I am currently studying chemical engineering at Brigham Young University. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Utah where I was raised among friends and family who shared my faith. It was a great environment for me and I felt like I learned a lot about my purpose here in life. I love music and playing sports. I love to study as well. I served as a missionary in Norway and enjoyed experiencing a culture different from the one I was raised in.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I feel within me that it is true. I have been raised in this faith and so it has always been a part of the way that I act and treat those around me. Happiness has always been a goal in my life and I have seen how the principles found in the restored gospel, when applied to one's life, truly do lead to happiness. I see the church as a tool that we have been blessed with to help us experience the most joy in this life through personal progress and development. I am grateful that we have been given witnesses, such as the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and the living church organization, that help us strengthen our faith and know that we stand on the firm foundation which is based around Jesus Christ. That assurity means more than anything else to me because I know it is something I can always trust. That is why I continue on the path that I am on.

How I live my faith

My faith has always been an active part of my life and it is important for me to always strive to do the best I can in all that I do. I will be the first to admit that I'm far from perfect but I enjoy the feeling that comes when we make progress with ourselves. I love helping others and sharing time with them. I feel like I have been very blessed with many things in my life and I only hope to share what I can with those around me.
