Hi I'm Jacob Redd

I'm Mormon because I have a strong testimony of the restored church.

About Me

I was born in Monrovia, Liberia. I came to the United States when I was 12 years old. I have two brothers and one sister. My hobbies are playing sports, reading book, listening to music and hanging out with friends and family. I'm currently serving a full time mission in Florida Jacksonville Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

Growing up I used to attend church with my grandparents almost every Sunday, but when I got older barely went. Whenever I decided to go church was because of some activities that were happening at the church or I had a trial in my life and I needed God to help the me get through it. Even though, I wasn't attending church regularly, I still use to says my prayers every night before going to bed. I think the reason I didn’t go to church as often as I should because I felt that something was missing in my life. When I got baptized into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints ( LDS Church), it seem like I found what I was missing. When I took the missionary discussions most it made sensed to me. I believe restored gospel is true and the Book of Mormon evidence to the truth. Since joining the LDS church I have made many changes to my life, I'm always happy and I know what I need to do build a stronger with God. The teachings of the church has been helping to stays on the strait and narrow. I love the restored gospel.

How I live my faith

I show faith by doing what is right; reading my scripture daily, saying my prayer day and night, being a good example to those around me, helping others and sharing my testimony at every opportunity I that get. Because of my faith in Jesus Christ I want to be better man. I know as I follow Christ perfected example that he set before us I can be like him someday. Everything that I do is centered on the faith that I have in the Savior Jesus Christ. Faith keep me going on with life despite the challenges that I face in life.
