Hi I'm Oren Hunter Jacobson

I grew up in Orem Utah. My brothers and sisters are my best friends in the whole world.

About Me

I'm the second oldest of eight kids. I have three younger brothers. An older sister and three younger sisters. I played soccer in highschool and love the sport. I Graduated from highschool with an associates degree in science. I love golfing with my dad and brothers. life is good.

Why I am a Mormon

My entire life all of my family has been a part of the church, but there was a time where I did have to decide if being a member of this church was something that I wanted to do. I decided it was time to get on my knees and truly find out if this church was true and if it was something I wanted to be a part of. The second I started to really ask with a desire to know if the church was true and that my Heavenly Father loved me I felt this beautiful feeling of peace and just pure joy in my life. There honestly are no words to describe my feelings. I can now confidently say that I know that this church is true. That Christ is my savior and that through his atonement I can be forgiven and become a better man. This simple truth blesses my life on a daily basis.

How I live my faith

I feel like I've lived my life in a very normal way. I have a mother and father brothers and sisters and I love them all. I have played sports all my life. I love skiing and being in the mountains. I love reading a good novel. I'm just like any other person except I know who I am, I know why I'm here, and I know that I can be with my family forever. The Gospel and Atonement of Jesus Christ have changed me.
