Hi I'm Jacob Privette

I'm a professional photographer, musician, and a Mormon.

About Me

I was raised in Georgia. When I was a small child, my mom passed away. I had a test of faith as an eight-year-old. As a young adult, I moved to Utah. Utah did not work well for me and I slowly left the church. I was diagnosed with OCD and depression. These mental illnesses assisted in my separation from the gospel and exacerbated my problems. I returned to Georgia and hit rock bottom. Another few months later, I came back to the church. It's been the best decision that I've made so far in my life. My time away from the church made me appreciate the blessings that living the gospel brings. My experience with the loss of a parent has made me grateful for trials and the growth that they bring. Now, I do photography for the Atlanta Falcons and Atlanta United FC, as well as do wedding photography. I have released several songs under the surname "Jake Grey." I've been able to manage my OCD and depression in a healthy way. I've been able to be successful in life thanks to the blessings that Heavenly Father continually gives me.

Why I am a Mormon

I know the gospel of Jesus Chris is true. I have the knowledge that my Lord, my God, lives. He loves me and loves you no matter what where we've been and what we've done.

How I live my faith

I put the Lord first and serve others. Being an endowed member of the church, I covenanted to represent Christ in all things. I try to show others that a hard life and past sins do not stop a person from receiving the blessings of the atonement of Jesus Christ.

What is the priesthood?

Jacob Privette
The Priesthood is the authority to act in the name of God. It is an extension of God through worthy children of God. Show more Show less
