Hi I'm Jacob Gonzalez

Born in Plano, Texas. Now live in Lodi, California. Lover of Sports. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 19 years old, love playing football, running track (mainly hurdles), skateboarding and drawing. I was raised in the LDS church, always loved the church and loved everyone in it. After high school I decided to attend BYU-Idaho for 2 semesters before I went to serve a mission for the LDS church for two years.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because i believe this church to be the one true church on the earth today. I love every aspect of this church especially the focus on service, this church is all about Christlike service and becoming more like Him to be able to eventually return and live with our Father in Heaven. The only reason I know this to be true is from personal study and prayer asking our Heavenly Father to help me understand if these things are true and I believe he has answered me. I believe Jesus is the Christ and that he died for us, I believe the Book of Mormon to be the Word of God as is the Bible and i also believe that Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God and that Thomas S. Monson is His prophet today.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by daily studying the scriptures to gain an even greater knowledge and testimony of my faith. I also pray daily to my Father in Heaven daily to gain the strength that I need to get through each day. I am currently serving a full time mission in Raleigh, North Carolina as well.
