Hi I'm Jacob

I'm a mountaineer, rock climber, skier, and I'm a mormon.

About Me

I live next to a huge mountain range in eastern Idaho and have enjoyed rock climbing, skiing, and hiking since I was little. I love the beauty of the mountains that God has created for us, and love being with my family or friends in the outdoors. My Mom and Dad have taught me all they know about the mountains and as a family we go either skiing, hiking, or climbing about every weekend. I've been skiing for twlevle years now and whether its floating down some nice powder, cutting the groomers, or doing flips and tricks in the air, it is all just good fun! I have climbed many of the major peaks in the Teton range in western Wyoming, and love all the beauty that God has created for us. I also love hanging out with my friends. We all share the same core values and many of them are members of my faith. I know that by learning from those around us who have high morals can really influence our lives and help us understand the love that our Heavenly Father has for us. Although my friends are great, I love being with my family and learning how to become the person God intends us to become.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because the gospel of Jesus Christ gives me direction in life. I have an outline of what I hope to do during my time on earth, with an end goal of becoming like Jesus Christ, or at least as much like Him as I possibly can be. This church has given me the hope to know and believe that one day I can become a successful father, husband, doctor, and leader. It has helped me understand that I am a son of God and that He really does love me.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a two year mission for my church in the New England area. During these two years it is my full time job to teach everyone I meet about the Church of Jesus Christ, and help them gain a stronger faith in Jesus Christ. Whether its through service or teaching a lesson, everyday I get the chance to help and uplift people. It is such a fun and amazing experience!
