Hi I'm Jacob

Grew up in Georgia. Love sports (especially lacrosse). Serving a Spanish Speaking mission in Idaho. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hey, my name is Jacob. I am the oldest of five brothers. We all love the sport of lacrosse. Our family of seven loves to spend time with each other. The few times we are not incredibly busy, movie and game nights are our favorite. I graduated from Peachtree Ridge High School in Georgia. I attended BYU Prove for a semester and am now on my Spanish Speaking Mission in Idaho.

Why I am a Mormon

While being raised in the Church, I still discovered for myself why I wanted to be a Mormon. I am a Mormon because I have felt in my heart and soul that it is what God really wants me to do. As a Mormon, I have been blessed to have so many incredible experiences and activities as well as create friendships that will for sure last forever. The Gospel of Jesus Christ just makes sense. Every little detail that I continue to discover rings true in my soul. Doubts, if any, are quickly erased as I study the words of Heavenly Father through my studying of the Bible and especially the Book of Mormon in addition to listening to the words of our modern-day prophets.

How I live my faith

The way I live my faith is to be the most Christlike I can with how I treat others. I always try to be optimistic and have the best outlook on life and with the people I encounter. I have been blessed to help others throughout different opportunities I have received in my youth. I also had the opportunity to serve in several leadership positions in the Church as well as at school. These experiences have truly taught me to have love and charity towards others especially as I serve them. I have learned to realize that people are so incredibly important in the eyes of God and because of that I try to treat them in a way that our Heavenly Father would approve.
