Hi I'm Jacob

I'm a tailor, avid artist, and lover of all things chocolate. I'm mormon.

About Me

I'm the youngest of 6 kids. I fell in love with all things sewing when I was a teenager, and I have done everything from crochet to knit to embroidery. I do costuming and cosplay as a side hobby. I've yet to put needle-crafting down. I am currently a missionary. I began my mission in Vitoria, Brasil, Espirito Santo, and had to come home for surgery. I have been reassigned in the Spokane Washington mission. I love being a missionary, and I love being a member of this church. I enjoy motorcycles, cooking, and world culture. I love spending time with my family, and I enjoy reading. Especially reading the scriptures. I love learning. Every day I try to learn something new. I love to serve others; especially when I can use my talents that I have received from God to bless others. I always loved to go to the humanitarian service projects, and sew things for the church to use to help others in need. I'm fluent in Portuguese, and I'm currently trying to learn Japanese, and maybe Italian a little further down the line.

Why I am a Mormon

Because. It's the only way to be. This church has brought me so much strength.Knowing my divine potential has helped me understand who I am, and motivates me to live a righteous life. I want nothing more than to live forever with my family and my heavenly father. I know that in, and only though the atonement of Christ can I be forgiven of the mistakes of my past. I know that God is expects us to make the right choice, and that Christ is there for us when we slip up. I know that only through the strength that comes from the Gospel of Christ, can we withstand the trials of this life. I am a Mormon, because I need the things this church has to offer in order to withstand the violent whirlwind that is the world we live in. I'm Mormon, because I cannot imagine a life without the knowledge and understanding that I have be given in this church. I'm Mormon, because I know the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, is the one and only true church on the face of this green earth. And I know this, because I prayed and asked to know, and God told me it was true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being who I am. I'm a son of God. He loves me, and I love him. I try every day to overcome my short comings, and I plead for the strength that only comes from God. I study my scriptures, and I love every one I meet as best I can. I strive to let go of things I cant control, and live my life according to the commandments. I love being a missionary, now more than ever. I try every single day to be the person that God wants me to be.
