Hi I'm Jacob

I am a high school student. I am a friend. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a stay at home nerd who spends many hours on my computer doing various tasks that vary form learning how to code in C#, JavaScript, Python, Ruby, HTML, CSS, and JQuery. To writing music that I sell online and many people around the world listen to and enjoy. I am a gamer and love to spend time with my friends online and in real life. I Love those around me and try to be a smiling face for those who need it most.

Why I am a Mormon

After reading the Book of Mormon i just knew that it was true and have since just loved spending time with my friends at church. I have been a mormon all my life but still reading the Book of Mormon really just proved to me that i am on the right path and that it is a safe path to follow through life. I love the caring and love the church gives and it makes everybody feel welcome. Its hard to be sad on a sunday with everyone so happy around you and with the gospel in my life its hard to be sad at all.

How I live my faith

For me i live my faith by being a good example to everyone i meet and showing them how much fun you can have being a mormon. People think that being a mormon is boring and that there are too many rules but personally i love those rules. Those rules will help me to live a longer and healthier life that i know i can be proud of when i am older.

Who founded Mormonism and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?

The Church of Jesus Christ was founded by a young 14 year-old boy named Joseph Smith. He was unsure of what church he was to join so as he read in John he read "...if any of he lack wisdom, ask he of god..." so he did. He prayed on an april morning in 1820 to know what church was true and learn none of them were. He didn't go looking to start a new church, but because of his curiosity he learn the fullness of the gospel. He learn the true church of god was not yet upon the earth. So over the coarse of his life he received more modern revelations of how to run the church. So because of his curiosity the church was made. Show more Show less
