Hi I'm Jacob

I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am 21 years old and I enjoy spending time with my family, going camping, playing video games, hunting, fishing, and riding four wheelers.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church and have always attended but that doesnt mean that i took my parents word for it and knew that it was true. As i read my scriptures and prayed and lived as close to a christ-like life that i could i came to know of the truthfullness of the mormon church.

How I live my faith

By being an example to all those around me, by reading my scriptures, and going to church every week.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Jacob
i know that it is encouraged for all able and worthy males from the age of 19 to 25 to serve a mission but growing up i never wanted to serve a mission, i would always tell my bishop (the leader of our congregation) no when he asked me if i wanted to serve a mission. After i graduated highschool i felt that my life was lacking something that i had hit a dead end and then one night i knelt down and prayed to my heavenly father and asked him what i should do with my life, i offered up many different scenarios and the last thing i offered up was a mission. The very next day i went to work and no one acknowledged me until i got to the back of where i work and my boss came out of the office who is not a member of my religion of mormonism and the only words she said were "your going on a mission". from that point on i knew the next step in my life and from that experience i am now serving the great people in the washington seattle mission.
