Hi I'm Jacob

I am from Atlanta, GA. Despite being from the south, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a husband 15 and a half years to my sweetheart Courtney Clack and we have 3 beautiful children. Ansley 12, Matthew 10, and Will 6. I live on the border of Texas/Mexico. I am a controller of a manufacturing plant in Mexico and manufactures life saving medical devices and get the opportunity to work with and experience the rich Mexican culture nearly every day. I have a passion for my wife and children most of all but I also love working out and I love American college football. I studied at the University of Georgia so my loyalty and passion lies solely there. Sorry BYU. :)

Why I am a Mormon

It would be easy to say I am a Mormon because I was born and raised in the church (which is true) but that's only how I was introduced to it. I had to figure out on my own that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the true and restored church of Jesus Christ on the earth today. It is the only church that has the true authority to act in Gods name. It contains the fullness of His gospel and has so many plain and precious things that pertain to our salvation that all the others don't and that so many people lack and are desperately looking for. I had to figure this out in my own time and when The Lord answered my prayers and the prayers of my family it has taken me and my family on a journey that has enriched our lives and brought us true happiness I didn't realize I could have whilst bringing me closer to the Savior. I know that His atonement for my sins made it possible for me despite my many weaknesses and flaws to return to live with Him again. I have felt His infinite atonement in my life and the peace that comes in with it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith straight forward and on my sleeve. I'm happy to discuss my faith with anyone who is interested. I put my faith in The Lord and I know if I do my best at keeping His commandments He will bless me and my family. I have served in various positions in the church including financial clerk and Sunday School teacher. I currently serve as a young men's advisor. I love to work with them and see these young men grow and serve others in various capacities. I'm continually amazed how good these young men are and how they stand out as a shining example of how to follow Christ and serve others. I live my faith in a manner so that anyone I meet knows very quickly what I am and what that means. They know I am a Christian who continually strives to be good and follow the teachings of the Savior.
