Hi I'm Jacob

I grew up in Salt Lake City. I'm serving as missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love everything outdoors. I enjoy skiing, hiking, camping, rock climbing and fishing. I play the trumpet and sing. I love spending time with my friends and family. I'm currently serving as a missionary in the Norway, Oslo mission. I love being a missionary.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family that regularly attends church. I decided to find out for myself if the Church of Jesus Christ is true. Through regular scripture study and prayer the Holy Ghost has testified to me of the truthfulness of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. The LDS church is the Lord's church on the earth today. It is led by a living Prophet, President Thomas S. Monson. God speaks to us through the prophets today. Jesus Christ came to the earth and died for each and everyone of us. Because of him we can be forgiven of our sins. We can feel peace when we come unto Him. He was resurrected and because of him we will all live again after we die. I love the Gospel. It is the source of all my joy in this earth life.

How I live my faith

I'm serving full time as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I love studying God's words in the scriptures. I read the Book of Mormon every day because it brings me nearer to my Heavenly Father and gives me strength. Every Sunday, I go to Church to learn more of Jesus Christ's Gospel and to feel God's love for me. I also love to pray. Through pray we can talk with our Father in Heaven by sharing the thoughts and feelings of our hearts. Through scripture study, prayer, and church attendance I feel closer to God and my faith is renewed. I am filled with peace, joy and the strength I need to live life. I do my best to smile and serve others!
