Hi I'm Jacob

I grew up in Minnesota. I'm am Eagle Scout, a student, a brother, a son, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Minnesota. I love to spend time out doors with my family and friends hiking, camping, hunting, fishing, anything outside and a lot of that has to do with my activity in the Boy Scouts. I also enjoy reading and I'm always trying to learn new things. I was a student and have my AA. degree in Business Administration. I also have worked at a quick lube shop for the past two years.

Why I am a Mormon

I've asked and prayed about the gospel and the teachings of the church and I know that they are true. It is the only explanation of life and eternity that has ever made sense to me. I have witnessed the blessings and benefits of living the teachings of the Lord and cannot imagine my life without it. I have read the Book of Mormon many times in my life and I know that it is true and that Joseph Smith, a man with little formal education, was called by God to translate it and to be the first prophet of His restored church on this earth.

How I live my faith

I do it day by day. Everyday presents new challenges to face, and coming up soon, I will be doing the most challenging thing I have ever done serving a two-year mission for the Lord. Before his, though, I was a primary teacher for the 7 and 8 year-old's and I also held leadership positions in the churches youth organizations.
