Hi I'm Jacob

I was born and raised in San Diego, I love soccer, and I am going to serve in Twin Falls, Idaho.

About Me

When I was four years old, my parents divorced and my sister and I lived with my mother. My mother remarried an LDS member and sister missionaries converted my mother and sister, i was too young to know what was going on so they just sent me off to church and i was lucky to be raised in it at such a young age. I had a hard time with it at first, but eventually i started to love going to church and i knew that i wanted to serve a mission, and now i am. I love going to the beach and swimming, and I also love to play and watch soccer, it is my greatest hobby and past time.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because i love everything it brings, the feelings, the emotions, the happiness and the peace and the laughter and the love, and all the people it brings, i enjoy going to church and hanging around people of the LDS faith because they are such good people and i enjoy the good company they bring, I can definitely feel the difference between being righteous and following the commandments, and being unrighteous and disobedient. I hate the guilt that sinning brings, and I love how we have a chance to better ourselves and be forgiven of those mistakes, and then the calm feeling comes back that tells me everything will be alright and i love it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by obeying the rules set to protect us and guarantee our happiness and freedom. I live my faith by answering the call when anyone needs help, whether it be a service project or just a friend or someone in church who calls me last minute to help them or a friend with a major project, i love dropping what i can to go and help them and serve, it is an amazing feeling to help and to impact someone's life in a positive manner, it feels good and i love that feeling. I also live my faith by always attending church and doing what needs to be done, i always magnify my calling and i always read the scriptures.
