Hi I'm Jacob

I grew up in Utah. I love to Mountain Bike and Snowboard. I'm an avid reader, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I live in Payson, Utah and I love being in the Mountains that are right next door. Mountain Biking and Snowboarding have been my favorite past times for the last couple of years and I hope to keep doing them for the rest of my life. I grew up in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and have been a member my entire life.

Why I am a Mormon

I kinda grew up in the church but I wasn't exactly the most accepting. I was always the trouble maker and I found that I could have a lot of fun doing it. It wasn't till I was 17 that I found that I really enjoyed the blessings of the gospel much more than the mess that I was making. I know that my redeemer, Jesus Christ, lives and that he atoned for our sins. This is a part of me that will never be taken away. As I've lived what Jesus taught I've come to know of my purpose here on earth and it has brought me the most happiness I've felt in my life.

How I live my faith

Right now in my life I go out and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with everyone that I can talk to. The message of the Atonement of Jesus Christ and that of the restoration of His Gospel has effected my life enough for me to realize the importance of sharing it with others. Typically throughout the day I study the scriptures and then pray and ask God to lead me to those who will except the message i desire to share. In the end I have loved the work I have done so far and have been far blessed beyond what effort I've put into it. When I see others make the choice to come closer to Christ or listen to my message it brings me the most joy I've ever had in my life.

What do Mormons believe about the Bible? Do they regard it as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Jacob
Yes! we believe it to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly. We believe that through reading the Bible that we are able to learn and grow closer to God. We believe that through reading the Bible we can know more of our purpose here on eath and be able to fulfil our promises to God. We believe that we can learn of the life of our savior Jesus Christ and through learnin this we try to follow his example. Show more Show less
