Hi I'm Jacob Ward

I'm an army brat, a book lover, a full time missionary, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am an avid fantasy book lover, i have a love for traveling and seeing things that most people only dream of seeing! When im asked where im from i generally replay "all over". Unlike most kids i was really privileged to be able to move around A LOT! i have been able to live in both the east and west coasts of the United States and even for 4 years in Germany! Right now i am serving as a full time Missionary serving in the Maryland Baltimore Mission speaking Spanish!

Why I am a Mormon

My parents always taught me from a young age to always question and search things out on my own. This especially carried over into religious matters. My father grew up Mormon, but my mother grew us going to many different churches and religions such as: Pentecostal, Methodist, Baptist, Catholic and was even raised, as a small child, Buddhist. My mother was well on her search seeking out the true Church of God, when she met my father and what started were events that forever changed my life. She received her answer, was baptized and married my dad. Growing up my mom and dad always taught me that i cannot rely solely on their testimony but that i needed to search, ponder and pray to know the truth for my self. I did just that and I can say with my whole heart that i know that i am a child of my Heavenly Father, that He and His Son Jesus Christ appeared unto Joseph Smith, and that through their prophet have restored the true and only Church of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving my best to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ, praying and then following the spiritual promptings i receive. I am not perfect, that's for sure, but i have a firm faith that through the Atonement or suffering, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, that i can over come my sins and will one day live with my Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ and my Family for eternity. Its because of this faith and assurance that i am now serving a mission, so i can bring the happiness, joy, and love that i have felt to others who are so desperately seeking to know Jesus Christ and our Heavenly Father. Faith isnt just something you just have when you are at church or when you are sick, its something you live, feel, love and are.
