Hi I'm Jacob Woodard

I grew up in a small town deep in the heart of Texas population roughly 5,000. There were 10 Mormon 5 Catholics and 4,985 baptists

About Me

I love being outside. Riding a motorcycle, mountain biking, hiking, skiing, you name it I'll do it. I'm not a huge fan of school but i do it anyways so i don't have to go back to work at McDonalds. I Have served a two year LDS mission in Mexico, Cuernavaca. Which were some of the best yet hardest two years of my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the LDS faith but like there came a point that i did not continue to believe what i was being taught in the religion. This point came about when i was about 13 years old. From that point on i started my search to know what was true in the religious world. i searched for answers in the bible and the other sacred books that the LDS faith believes in and slowly started to feel the truth of what i was reading and what i had been taught since i was young. The moment came that i was so convinced about what i was learning that i felt the desire to share it with those around me. That was when i volunteered to serve an LDS two year mission. The more i learn the more I'm reassured that what i believe in is the truth. It was beyond a logical persuasion but a spiritual communication between me and the Lord.

How I live my faith

The LDS church teaches us to have an individual relationship with god. This comes about through our daily habits and the decisions we make everyday. Though I am not even minutely perfect at these daily decisions i strive everyday to read some sort of scriptural text and have daily prayer at least twice a day. I strive to be better today than i was yesterday. The church also gives you opportunities to serve those around you both within and out of the church's organization.
