Hi I'm Jacob Manwaring

I try to have fun, live a good life, and “let my light shine!” And I’m a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Idaho Falls. I love hanging out with my family, especially my brothers, and my friends. I enjoy activities and sports outside, but especially love making movies. I love going to church and seminary and look forward these every day.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a very active Latter-Day Saint family. I was taught from my earliest child-hood that the LDS gospel was the only completely true religion on this earth. But, more importantly, as I’ve grown older I’ve found out for myself. I no longer rely solely on what my parents, mentors, and friends tell or teach me. I know now that the LDS church is true! I am a Mormon, because I don’t just believe the Church is true, I know it is! Nothing else can bring me such peace, joy, and knowledge.

How I live my faith

Everyday, all day, I strive to be the best I can be. For too long I compared myself to others. Now I leave judging to God and just try to live life unbiased about others or myself. I want to keep the commandments, serve my God, be an example, and become a man, a man who’s a worthy priesthood holder.
