Hi I'm Jacob Eisenhower

I have grown up in Arizona. I enjoy golfing, watching movies, and hanging out with family and friends. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was called to serve in the Idaho Boise mission and because of the great push in missionary work our mission split! I am now serving in the Idaho Twin Falls mission and loving every bit of it! I love golf, spending time with friends, playing and watching sports, music, and exercising to stay in shape. I'm going to school although I am not quite sure what I want to study yet, but I want to do something in golf. For the most part I am a relaxing guy who loves to be around family and friends because those are the things that bring me the most joy in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the LDS church, but have not always been active. When I was young I relied mostly on the testimonies of my family and friends. I had a small testimony enough to know the church was true but because of laziness and being complacent it was hard to resist the temptations of the world. It wasnt until I left the church for a couple of years to realize what I was missing in my life. My two best friends remained active, both served missions on time and one got married soon after he got back. I went to my friends wedding reception and saw both of my two best friends there, I could just see the happiness and joy in the countenance and their faces and new I had to return. While attended the reception in another state I was staying with one of my brother's roomate's family that I didnt know to well at the time. It was saturday night and we had just watched a football game and were just talking and he invited me to go to church with him and his family; which was a kind of cornering situation because I thought it would be awkward to stay at their house while they were at church. The next moring we arrived at church, and that sacrament meeting I felt the spirit so strong, I knew thats where I was supposed to be and from then on I have not missed a single sacrament meeting. Later on I got the feeling I should share the knowledge of true happiness that I have found to others, so I decided to serve a mission and I have never been happier.

How I live my faith

Currently I am serving a two year mission for the church, so I can help others receive the same happiness and joy that I find when I am living by the gospel of Christ.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Jacob Eisenhower
As a missionary we teach thay we can communicate with our Heavenly Father through prayer. We use the example: Pretend you are moving away to go to college in a different state. While you are away your parents miss you, they want to talk to you. Just like calling your parents on the telephone we can pray to our Heavenly Father. He wants to Help us and wants to know what we are stuggling with and shower blessing upon us. All you have to do is drop to your knees to dial his Number. Show more Show less
