Hi I'm Jacob Jensen

Hi, my name is Elder Jensen and I'm a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints

About Me

I love sports and music. I am the oldest in the family with a younger sister and younger brother, and currently serve as missionary in Smithsfield, Utah. I have a strong testimony of this gospel and of Jesus Christ, and know that this truly is His established church upon the Earth once again. I know that the Book of Mormon truly is another testament of Jesus Christ and I know that everyone who will read this book and will ask in prayer to know if it's true will receive a testimony of this magnificent book as well.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this gospel, and have been blessed with wonderful parents who have strong testimonies in the gospel. I read the Book of Mormon at a young age, and through study and prayer have come to know that it is true. I have received a witness from the Holy Spirit of the divinity of this Gospel and I invite all to read and do the same with a solemn promise that if you will read and pray with a sincere heart and real intent you will come to KNOW that this book is true.

How I live my faith

I am a missionary of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. My purpose is to invite others to come unto Christ and help them gain a testimony of our Savior, Jesus Christ, and of His Atonement. I do this by studying the Bible and the Book of Mormon daily, praying daily, and by loving and serving all those around me.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Jacob Jensen
In my personal experience, the best way to come to know Heavenly Father is through righteous living, diligent study, and prayer. The Holy Ghost is a divine instructor and can teach all things to a person. The Holy Ghost cannot dwell with someone if they do not live righteously however, so one must live and keep the commandments to be worthy of that companionship. Diligent study is also key! The Father and His son Jesus Christ are loving and merciful! But they also will rarely, if ever, give something to someone who hasn't worked a little bit for it. Simply showing your desire to know more about Heavenly Father by studying will allow the Holy Ghost to teach you and speak to your heart and mind. And of course prayer! And even more specifically conversational prayer! Do not simply utter a quick prayer and then immediately go to bed or continue with the daily activities! Give the spirit a chance to speak back! Pray and then ponder and listen! Then continue praying and ponder and listen again! These three tools will help you immensely in learning the true character and person of the Father.
