Hi I'm Jakob William Walker

Born in England. Living in Cambridgeshire. Advertising student in America. Football and Film Fanatic. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the youngest of two, a typical small, English family. My mother joined the church in her youth and was the only member of her family to do so. My older brother, served a mission in the England London South Mission. He is a shining example to me and was a big help in preparing myself to serve a mission. I served in the Estonian which is a tiny little country on the border of Russia. I live for Soccer. I play at every opportunity I get and watch it constantly. There isn't a sport that I do not enjoy participating in. I have been at college in the United States for the past two years declared as an Advertising major although I am still trying to figure out what I actually want to do professionally!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe God lives, that he reveals, not that he revealed. I am a Mormon because I believe in prophets and that there is a living Prophet on the earth today! I am not perfect, far from it in fact, and even though I have made many mistakes, some bigger than others, there is one thing that has always brought happiness to my life, and that is the knowledge that my Saviour, Jesus Christ, knows me. He knows my pains, weaknesses, trials and strengths. He may be at times, the single person who truly knows what I am going through. I live my faith because of the chance of being with my family for eternity is more precious to me than any treasure I could be offered.

How I live my faith

My faith for me involves providing service for my fellowman. I have discovered there is a unspeakable joy which can be found in the service of others. I try to live my faith so that those around me will feel that same joy which comes from expressions of Christlike love.

Who was Joseph Smith?

Jakob William Walker
Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God. I know this because I know that no man would go through the pains, persecutions and sufferings that he went through for a hoax church and/or a fictional book. Only a crazy man would do that and I know that no crazy man could write a 531 page novel in only 65 days....! He literally saw the Father and the Son in that grove of trees early in the Spring of 1820 in answer to his meek and lowly prayer. He stood by his testimony all his life because it really happened. I will stand by him and be counted as a Latter-day Saint until the day I die, just like he did. Show more Show less
