Hi I'm Jacob Konshuk

I'm from Washington I'm a farm boy, I'm a guitarist, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love music. I love playing guitar, beatboxing(kinda lame I know) and singing. I grew up on a wheat farm out in the fields of Eastern Washington. I love to work. Most people have no idea where my town is and where I'm from people don't really know who Mormons are either. I love creating things and I hope one day to work doing computer engineering. I want to renovate, innovate, and change the way things work. I hope that I can improve the world one tiny act at a time by being the best person I can be. My dream is to make a difference somewhere and somehow so that I can help people live better than they are today.

Why I am a Mormon

I've been raised in the church since I was born, but when I really started being a Mormon was when I was 15 or so. My conversion wasn't a day and night type of change. It's all happened gradually and come with time. Anyone can come to know the truth like I did. Many times in the church we hear about miraculous and amazing conversion stories, but it doesn't need to happen like that. I love the joy and peace that this Church brings. It's something that everyone is looking for and I'm happy to say that I was so blessed to have it at such a young age.

How I live my faith

Service is a big part of my faith. I love making someones day by serving them in some way. I try to be kind and patient with everyone I meet. I try not to judge, after all what do I know about their life? I try to give everyone their fair shake in life. It's not an easy thing at times but I try to live my faith by being kind to others. I think truly think that being loving is the best way a person can show their faith.
