Hi I'm Jacob

I am a college student in Idaho I love wrestling, ultimate frisbee, wood carving, hiking, ice cream, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am a single college student in Idaho. I am studying Physics and I love it! I love the outdoors, nature, hiking, camping, climbing, caves, Ultimate Frisbee, Wrestling, music, ice cream, steak, beef jerky, ice skating, sledding, and kite boarding. I love to hang out with friends and do crazy fun stuff. I hope to go to graduate school and eventually get a good job and have a family!

Why I am a Mormon

My parents are both members of the Mormon church and ever since I can remember I have participated ing church activities. However there came a point in my life that I no longer wanted to rely on my parents conviction about their faith and wanted to know for myself if the things that I had been taught my entire life really were the correct things for me. I studied and prayed often and little by little came to know for certain that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is Gods kingdom on the earth and that only through the restored teachings of Jesus Christ can we return to live with God!

How I live my faith

I love to help other people! The best feeling that exists in this world is when someone looks you in the eye and says "thank you", sincerely and you can tell that they mean it! Everything I have come to know about God the Father, his son Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost are thanks to the Mormon church. Everything good in my life has been as a direct result of that! I have had the opportunity to serve others through the church in many different ways. I participated in the Boy Scouts of America program through the church and was able to obtain the rank of Eagle scout. I have previously been called as a leader among the youth programs in the church and have learned leadership skills. Recently I served as a full time missionary for two years. I spent 2 years of my life away from home in a foreign country preaching the gospel and bringing others to the knowledge of Jesus Christ and his restored gospel on the earth today. It was so much fun! Although difficult at times I was able to see first hand the difference that the gospel can make in the lives of others!
