Hi I'm Jakobi Byrd

I grew up in the south, I love sports and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 18 and 6'4 I was born in Utah and raised in the great state of Georgia and has lived here in the south ever since! Personally I don't think that there is any other place in the world I would want to be raised than here in the south. I am the oldest of five, 3 brothers and 1 sister! I love sports. While in high school I played football and soccer. But my true loves are basketball and lacrosse. I live, breathe, eat and sleep for college football and college basketball. With the Miami Hurricanes for football and the North Carolina Tar-Heels for basketball as my teams! As long as you are not a Florida State or Duke fan we will get along just fine. I also love music and finding new artist to listen to. I am currently preparing myself mentally, physically and spiritually to serve a full-time, 2 year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

Why I am a Mormon

Luckily I was able to be born into a LDS household. That is not the reason why I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. The reason is because of my testimony of Jesus Christ, the Book of Mormon and Joseph Smith. But being born into a LDS household helped as well.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing service to others and I try my best to keep the commandments and to always stay on track with the lord and his restored gospel.
