Hi I'm Jacob

I was born in Idaho Falls, Idaho but I grew up in Beaverton, Oregon. My favorite hobby is cycling. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My favorite activities are camping, biking, canoeing, basically anything that has to do with the outside. I became an Eagle Scout in June of 2011. My project was building an informational kiosk for a local park. It's great to see it in use. I graduated from High School that same year. I'm currently working on a flat work concrete crew and enjoy the physical labor.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into an active family who have taught me the gospel from my youth. I choose to stay active in the church because it feels right and feels like home. I have a testimony that The church of Jesus Christ is the true church on this earth. I firmly believe that a young boy called Joseph Smith was called of God and he with the power of God he translated the gold plates. I have read the Book of Mormon and found out for my self that the words contained in the the book are true and if you come unto it with an open heart and contrite spirit you to will find the truth with in the Book of Mormon

How I live my faith

I am a Den assistant for my Webelos group. We have 5 boys that attend a weekly meeting where we teach the boys about fitness, first aid, family, civic duties and how to leave no trace. I really enjoy working with these boys because I feel like I am giving back. I hope that one day they too will be an Eagle Scout. Scouting has been such an important thing in my life and I want to share the joy I found in participating in the Scouting Program.
