Hi I'm Jacob

I grew up in Salt Lake. I find joy in serving others. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I absolutely love playing baseball!! I have been playing ever since i was born and i played during high school too. It has been my life and i met some of my best friends while playing. It was tough at times but it was totally worth every trial. Never give up!! Times can be hard but if you stay strong it will turn better in the end. I spent a lot of time during High School volunteering with a lot of different groups that helped kids with special needs do fun activities and prepare for the Special Olympics. Service has blessed my life so much and im so happy that I had that wonderful opportunity to help others. I am now serving as a missionary in the Sweden Stockholm Mission and im loving it!

Why I am a Mormon

The reason i am a Mormon is because i found out for myself that this church is true! My parents never forced me to be a member, but they taught me all of the important principles and then allowed me to ponder for myself the truthfulness of what they taught me. As i have grown up i have realized that i am so happy because of this church, and whenever i am living righteously my life just flows better and i can tell the difference when im not. After i learned for myself that this church is true i have strived to follow the commandments and become a better person. I love the peace and comfort i feel when i kneel down on my knees and say a prayer to my Heavenly Father because i know he is always there for me and will always comfort me when i need him the most. I am a Mormon because i love this Gospel and i love the feeling i get when i do the right thing. I am a Mormon because i have learned for myself that this church is true by pondering everything i have learned and prayed to my Heavenly Father to confirm to me that what i have learned is true. I am a Mormon because i love knowing that i have a Heavenly Father who loves me.

How I live my faith

How i live my faith is that i always try to be a better person and serve others. Just like our Savior did. Jesus Christ served everyone and i wanted be like him. I tried to serve as many people that were in need as i could. As i did this i could tell a difference in my life, i felt closer to my Heavenly Father and Christ. When i was in High School it was hard sometimes to stay true to what i believed in because of peer pressure, i wanted to fit in. I realized as i was trying to fit in my faith was decreasing, and i did not like the feeling i had everyday. I knew i had to change and really gain faith in my life. When i was a Senior in High School i had the opportunity to be on Seminary Council, it was a great experience and i really gained faith because I was constantly searching the scriptures and praying to guide me to make sure that i did the best that i could. As i did this my testimony of Faith increased and my days seemed sweeter and calmer. It was such a blessing in my life.
