Hi I'm Jacob Young

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a father of 3 children, and have a wonderful wife. I am a business owner one of 7 siblings.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since birth. As a teenager, I began to question what I had been taught. Was I a member because of what my parents had taught me, or was I a member because I believed it? I made a decision to read the Book of Mormon and to decide for myself what I believed. As I read it, I began to believe that it was from God. As I read it further, I felt that it wasn't just a well written book by one person. I believed that it was a book from God. I began to follow its teachings found myself feeling closer to my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. Today I can say I follow the teachings the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because I believe it and not because I have always been taught it.

How I live my faith

I am involved in my community through the local Lion's Club, raising money for various organizations in the community. I also help in the community through coaching my children's sports and our children's school through the home and school club. At church I am currently helping with tracking finances for the Capitola ward/group.
