Hi I'm Jacob Morris

I live in Oregon. I love being with my family, being outdoors, playing tennis and riding my bike. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband and father of two, and an avid sports enthusiast. I love playing and watching almost any kind of sport. I recently have gotten into bike riding and completed my first Century ride last fall and we will be competing in my first triathlon this summer. I also love spending time with my family and being outdoors in the sunshine.

Why I am a Mormon

I love Jesus Christ and his gospel. I love knowing that He lives, that He has restored His true church on the earth today so that I can partake of the fullness of the gospel and find true joy and happiness in this life. I follow the gospel because I want to become like him and I want to continue to feel of his love and guidance in my life through the power of the Holy Ghost. My testimony means everything to me and I rely upon it to get me through the trials in life. Miracles happen all the time and I know it is through the atonement of Christ that He grants us grace and love so make those miracles happen.

How I live my faith

I try to live My Faith by living like Christ. I work with the youth in the church, specifically the 14 and 15 year old young men. We work on learning the duties of the priesthood, and start to prepare them to become honorable priesthood holders, and husbands and fathers someday. I love working with them in preparation for their opportunity to one day serve a mission, just as I had great leaders help me prepare to serve a mission.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

Jacob Morris
A testimony is what you have learned of Jesus Christ and his gospel through the power of the Holy Ghost. It is your personal witness that God lives, Jesus is the Christ and His true gospel is here on the earth to help us return to live with them again. Show more Show less
