Hi I'm Jacob

I love sports. I love my family. I love to eat and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have lived in Utah my whole life and I love it. I have been a member my whole life. I love playing most sports and/or watching them. Basketball and lacrosse are my favorites. Some of my hobbies include watching different TV series, spending time with my family and jumping on my trampoline. I am currently a missionary in North Carolina and I love being able to serve the Lord full-time.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this church and raised in it. My parents taught me and encouraged me to accept this gospel but they never made me accept it. They left that choice up to me. That is what I love about this gospel. The knowledge is given to you but it is up to you to make the choice of whether to accept it or not. I am a Mormon because I have received many confirmations that it is true. I have wanted to accept it because I have heard many testimonies of it's truthfulness and I wanted to know for myself. I have found that it brings peace to my life in times of struggle or sadness. I have put my trust in the Lord and He has helped me through many hard times. He never has abandoned me when I ask for His help. He will always be there if we are willing to accept Him into our lives.

How I live my faith

I have had the chance to do many service projects in the past because I was in boy scouts. That helped me gain an appreciation for service. The best way to reach out to people in my mind is service. It's a simple act but it is very powerful and can touch many lives without us even knowing. The most powerful act of love and service anyone has ever done for any of us is the atonement of Christ. He loves all of us and he gave us the chance to repent by dying for us. That was the purest act of love I have gained a testimony of. The best way that we can repay Him is by serving His children and showing love for everyone.
