Hi I'm Jacob Read

I love my family, sports, and music. I am serving in the New York, New York South mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am from Pleasant Grove, Utah. I love sports, waterskiing, hanging out with friends and family, and snowboarding. Right now, I am serving in the New York New York South mission.

Why I am a Mormon

All of my life I have been a member and I slowly got my testimony as I got older. I was super lucky to grow up in the family that I did. My parents and siblings are the coolest and helped me a ton as I got older. I love the Church. It has brought me so much happiness in my life. There are so many blessings that come from the gospel. I have seen not only in my life but also in the life of my family and others that the gospel strengthens relationships and helps us become better people. The church is true!

How I live my faith

Right now I serving in New York as a missionary. I have seen my testimony grow like crazy. I have a strong testimony of the Book of Mormon and that it is the word of God. One thing that helped my testimony before my mission was going to the temple. There's no where better to be than in the house of the Lord. The Book of Mormon is probably the coolest thing about our church. It's evidence that we have prophets in our time that can receive revelation from God and that the church is true.
