Hi I'm Jacob

I love to read and write, swim, and learn new things. My favorite pastime is making people laugh. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to read. Harry Potter, The Maze Runner, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, and Life Expectancy have been some of my favorite novels. I am studying Physiology and Developmental Biology with a minor in Scandinavian Studies. I am looking to pursue a career in pharmaceutical research. I love to write and I have a life goal to write novel of my own someday. I consider making people laugh my hobby. My favorite place to be is in water; I love to swim. I love swimming and body surfing in the ocean. One of my favorite things to do is to just sit on the beach and watch the ocean. It's beautiful.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love my Savior Jesus Christ and I want to be obedient to His will. I know the Book of Mormon is true scripture from God and I want to follow the teachings contained within its writings. When my grandpa died from leukemia when I was 10 years old, I prayed to know if God was there and if I would see my grandpa again. Immediately, I felt His Spirit so strongly and I felt loved and felt a great peace and in that moment I knew that God, Our Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ were real and that They loved me. I am so very grateful for all the many blessings in my life (family, school, friends) and I want to give back and serve God for all the wonderful things He has given me by diligently serving in His church. I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is His church and I know that anyone can find true happiness through this church.

How I live my faith

I served as a youth leader when I was 17 in a group of boys ages 16-18. I helped plan weekly activities and several service projects in the community. I also served as an doctrinal instructor for 18 year old boys. I plan to serve a mission for my church and simply want to do my best to help and serve other people.
