Hi I'm Jacob

I love to hike in the mountains, write down my thoughts in story form, sing along to my favorite songs, and hang out with friends

About Me

Hi I am a 21 year old crazy young adult. I love to go camping. I have been camping every summer of my life. When I was 14 I hiked around the Grand Teton Mountain. It was a hard hike and my backpack was super heavy but it was super awesome. I have also enjoyed hiking in Zion's canyon Utah. I hiked the Virgin River Narrows and the Subway down there. It was super great. Other things I enjoy are building towers out of blocks, homes out of legos, having super battles with the "Pirates of the Caribbean" stuff I have collected. I also enjoy listening to music, walking through the gardens of my college campus. I love college. I enjoy how in college you can set when you take the classes and how many classes you want in a day. I have worked in a grocery store. I got to put the food in the bags. It was so much fun. I have also worked for my Dad. He makes stucco. One of my favorite times of my life was when I got to install 200 feet of water pipe line for a camp ground to help them bring fresh water to their southern campgrounds. It took an entire summer, but it rocked because I got to spend a ton of time in the mountains and I was helping tons of campers everywhere to be able to enjoy the mountains and have fresh water.

Why I am a Mormon

I am mormon because I have felt something in this church that cannot be found elsewhere. I am mormon because I feel peace in the way this church explains the rest of all time and eternity. I am a mormon because I feel a sense of belonging. I am a mormon because this church requires action.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by being kind and loving. I seek to help out at home without complaining and also seek to find ways to help those I meet during the day smile. I love seeing people smile. I know that smiles are hard to fake, and a real smile is a sign of happiness which is something that we are all seeking in this life.
