Hi I'm Elder Jacob Zachary Craig

I am an LDS missionary serving in Salt lake city, Utah.

About Me

I go to high school. i am involved with the theater program there. I am usually busy all week long. I am also a thespian. The classes I like the most are sciecne and drama class. All my friends know that I am lds (mormon) and understand my standards. I also do enjoy video games.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church of jesus christ of latter day saints. both of my parents were also born in the church. But the real reason i am a member is because i believe in it. I know the book of mormon was translated by Joseph Smith and is another testament of Jesus Christ. I also know that Thomas S. Monson is the prophet.

How I live my faith

Every morning I wake up get ready and go to seminary. I go because I enjoy it even though it is really early in the morning. I try to read the scriptures every day even if it is only for a few minutes. I go to church every sunday.

Who was Joseph Smith?

Elder Jacob Zachary Craig
Joseph Smith was a prophet of god and translated the book of Mormon through the power of god. He was a young boy when he started to look for the church he needed to attend. One day while he was reading the epistle of James he read "that if any man lacked wisdom let him ask of god who giveth to all men liberally and upbraideth not." He went into a secluded area in the forest and began to pray diligently to find an answer. God and his son Jesus came to him and told him that none of the sects where right. This is called the first vision. Through Joseph's faith, The faith of the saints, guidance provided by the lord. The church was reestablished and the earth. Show more Show less

What is the Word of Wisdom that Mormons talk about?

Elder Jacob Zachary Craig
The word of wisdom is put in place to protect and take care of our bodies. It tells us to avoid the use of tobacco, alcohol, coffee and tea, and illegal drugs because of the harm they cause us. God promises great blessing if we follow the word of wisdom. Show more Show less
