Hi I'm Jacob Nielsen

I love to play tennis, I'm serving a mission in the Philippines, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I love to play sports including tennis and raquetball. I love to spend time with my family. I worked as a lifeguard at a local pool. I love to be in scouting and working with the boys there. I like to go summer camping. I plan on attending BYU after serving my mission in the Philippines. I have one brother and three sisters. I like to play games online.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in this church but at one point I doubted it was true. I kept attending but I never payed attention to what was being taught. During those years, I felt lost and didn't have any direction to my life. I decided one day that I needed to know if the church was true and I received a peaceful feeling and I knew that the church was true. I am a memeber because I have felt the Lord's hand in my life and I have seen the oppurtunities that we are given because we follow him. The Lord wants us to follow him and he has presented a way for us to follow. I want to be with him again so I must listen to the promtings of the spirit so that I can be happy. I can live with Heavenly Father again but I have to work for it.

How I live my faith

I am an ordinary attendee of my ward. I help out in all areas that I can. I work a lot with ward members that are moving or other special tasks that we are required to do. I love when I get the opertunity to work with the young men groups because I see where I was at that age and can help them with their struggles so they can turn out better then me.
