Hi I'm Jacob Blaine Owens

I was born and raised in Idaho. I enjoy my small town life. I'm a Mormon. I love my religion.

About Me

I have lived in Idaho my entire life. I love living in a small town. I am the oldest of three boys. I recently graduated from high school. In high school I was highly involved with competitive speech and drama. I absolutely loved that. It was so much fun to spend time not only around the students from my own school but also with students from high schools all over Idaho. Acting is one of my favorite things to do. I was in six plays while in high school. One of my favorite things about being in a play is how close you become with the other actors. We spend a ton of time together while producing a show.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church. At the start of my senior year in high school I felt that it was time for me to develop and strengthen my own testimony. For years I had just been going to church, and doing what was expected of me, but I wasn't sure if I knew for myself that the church was true. The biggest thing that I did to help me decide whether or not the church was true was read the Book of Mormon. Every time that I read it I was able to feel the spirit. Before I had even finished the Book of Mormon, I had already felt that it was true. The more I learn about the church, the more I love it and the more my testimony grows. I am glad to be able to say today that I do have a testimony, and that I know this is the one and only true church.

How I live my faith

I have had many opportunities to participate in my church. One of my favorite callings was serving on the stake youth activities committee. My job was to represent the youth in my ward while planning stake activities. I enjoy the opportunity that I have to be a home teacher. My companion is awesome, and the family I visit is great. I really enjoy going to church. It is a time when I get to learn, and feel the Spirit.
