Hi I'm Jacob

I am from Reno, Nevada, I am currently on a mission in the Philippines Tacloban Mission and am exitied to help others know Christ.

About Me

i like running, I like walking, I like reading, I like writing, along with many other things teenage boys like. I like seeing what is out there, I like seeing what is in there, I want to know how to get there, because I know why I want to get there. And unless of course there is heaven, I almost never want there to be here and here to be far.

Why I am a Mormon

I love having the ways of thinking that growing up in the church has given me, I have gained testimonies of large things, such as the atonement and the restoration, and testimonies of things that seem smaller, such as prayers and testimonies themselves. I do not know where I would be without the church but I know it would not be here and that there would be much farther away.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going where I need to go, building the boats I need to build, and learning all that I can learn from all these things and more.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Jacob
Joseph Smith is a prophet, not god. Did the followers of Moses worship him? No, they worshiped God. Show more Show less

Why don’t Mormons drink coffee, tea, or alcohol? What is the Mormon Church’s law of health and proper diet?

Jacob
There are plenty of benefits to not drinking coffee tea or alcohol, our Heavenly Father was very wise to advise us not to partake of these things. But the reason we follow the commandment is not for its benefits, it is because God told us to. I wish I was more familiar with scripture refernces so I could give the refrence to the scripture in the Bible where God tells us, "If you love me, keep my commandments." We keep the commandments because we love God. Show more Show less
