Hi I'm Jacob

I grew up in Southest Georgia in a small shrimping town called Darien.I love playing sports and being with my family. I'm Mormon

About Me

I was born and raised in a small town in Southeast Georgia called Darien. I play football and baseball and enjoying playing these sports and others and reading.I love spending time with my family. I am the third of four boys in my family. My two older brothers served in Melbourne, Austalia and Omaha,Nebraska. I love learning and growing both in the gospel and life.I went to college a year before I came on my mission. I went to Georgia Tech a semester and then decided the big city wasn't for Atlanta wasnt for me. I then spent my next semester at a community college living with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

Im Mormon because I decided one day at EFY to pray to my Heavenly Father and ask if the Gospel was true and that if everythinh I have been learning is true. Almost instantly I felt a peaceful feeling inside and began writing my testimony in my journal. I have never written more than a paragraph in my journal but as I felt this peace I wrote a five page long testimony. Ever since that day I have always knew that this was The Lords church restored. Through prayer,scripture study and bearing my testimony has been increased and I know that as other do these thing a pray sincerly they will receive a witness through the Holy Ghost of its truth.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be obedient to my Lords commandements, by living worthy of the spirit and acting upon its promptings, by helping others both spiritually and physically, and by trying to follow the example of my Savior in all things with the hope of one day being worthy of him. I used to be a Young Men Teacher or youth teacher in church, I enjoyed teaching younger children about the gospel. Being with my family is something that is very important to our faith. I love my family and all that they have done for me. I try my best to be kind and love all those that I meet and be faithful and know that as I keep my promises and follow the teachings of Jesus Christ I will be able to live with my family forever.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Jacob
We believe that God loves everyone and wants to answer our prayers. He wants us to communicate with him and he wants to communicate with us. If we ask him of the truthfulness of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and about the Book of Mormon he will answer us through The Holy Spirit , which bears truth of all things.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Jacob
The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. It tells of God's dealings with the people and Prophets in the Americas.It is even more proof that Jesus is the Christ and that God is really there. It goes hand and hand with the Bible and make it even more clear what God's purpose for us is. I know that it is the word of God and through it you can become closer to our Heavenly Father.
