Hi I'm Jakob

I grew up in Missouri. I just graduated from high school and work A LOT. I am a member of the LDS church.

About Me

I was an athlete all throughout high school. I played football, some basketball, and ran track. I was in the IB program. I graduated with honors and received my IB diploma. I have always been fascinated with chemical engineering. I love creating and designing. I read philosophy books in my spare time, while greatly enjoying moments where I can sit and ponder.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the gospel. I've had my moments of doubt and disbelief, but they are always silenced with the serenity the gospel brings me. It is true that only Heavenly Father can save us from angst. The closer I am to The Lord, the happier I feel. No exceptions. Simply put, I am a 'Mormon' because I know it to be true. I love the way I feel, and the way I am able to help others feel.

How I live my faith

I actively participate in my church. I graciously accept any opportunities to give talks in sacrament meeting, participate in callings, and help out the youth. I served in leadership positions in each of the age groups (quorums) while in young men's. I enjoy going home teaching, though I dread making the appointments. I hope to get over that fear one day, but in the meantime I like to give the lessons. I do all that I can to help out.
