Hi I'm Jacob

I grew up in Utah. I am leaving on a mission to California. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 18 years old living in Utah. I recently just graduated from high school. During high school, I took part in singing in two choirs. I also have played Ultimate Frisbee for a school club team for the past three years. Along with choir and ultimate, I love hanging out with friends, enjoying nature, and watching and playing basketball. Currently, I am preparing to leave on a mission to California for the LDS Church.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because as I have grown up in this gospel I have come to love the peace and happiness it has brought in my life. This gospel has strengthened me and helped me to become the person I am today. I have no idea where I would be right now in my life without the gospel. I am so grateful that through the gospel I know that I can live with my family forever. It has brought me so much peace to know that through the Savior's atonement I can become clean again after making a mistake. And I know that Jesus Christ has atoned for each and everyone's mistakes, and through that we can come closer to Christ. I know that the truthfulness of this gospel was restored to Joseph Smith. And the Book of Mormon is true. I know that Thomas S. Monson is the true and living prophet on the earth today. I am so grateful that every time I am in need of advice or help I can turn to the Lord through prayer and scripture study, and He will answer me. I know this Church is true, and I am very grateful for the wonderful impact that it has on my life. And I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

How I live my faith

As I have grown up in this church, I have attended church every Sunday. I also participated in the young men's program in my ward, and I attended weekly activities for that. Along with this, I have been a part of the scouting program, and have recently received my Eagle Scout award.
