Hi I'm Jacob Connor

I've lived in Maryland my whole life. I love to play basketball and do pole vault. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Jacob. I run cross country and track and field. In track I do mid distance and pole vault as my field event. My two favorite sports are basketball and Ultimate Frisbee. I'm competitive. I'm a high school freshman. I really like kayaking and pepperoni pizza and toffee. I raced a fifty mile hike in twelve hours and forty-two minutes. Spending time with my family is awesome because we always have a good time and love one another. My favorite Book of Mormon hero is Captain Moroni.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know that what is taught in the church is true. Also I know that the priesthood was given to Joseph Smith by John the Baptist, Peter, James and John. I know that Joseph Smith translated the Book of Mormon through the power of God. I know that through the Atonement we can be forgiven for all of our sins no matter what they were or are. Our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ loves us and want us to return with them again. They want whats best for us and that is what the church teaches. I always find comfort in these facts and I know that if I'm ever in trouble that I can call upon my Father in Heaven and he will help me through my trails.

How I live my faith

I participate in my church by being a secretary for the young men in my ward that are fourteen to fifteen. I'm also a dedicated home teacher. I home teach with my dad. Home teaching is when the men in the church visit other members in their homes and make sure that their temporal and spiritual needs are met. For example my family invited a member that we home teach over for her first American Thanksgiving.
