Hi I'm Jacob

I was born and raised in Portland, Oregon. I play ultimate frisbee. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love playing ultimate frisbee, listening to music, snowboarding when I get the chance to, trying new things, and hanging out with my friends. When I was young I went to state for chess. I'm an Eagle Scout.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I can see the Lord's work in he lives of people around me. I've seen this church change lives and it's the reason that I'm alive today. I can't deny the things I've felt from the spirit and the confirmation that it always gives me that this church is true. I know without a doubt that God hears and answers our prayers and He knows and cares about each one of us. We are His children and we have the potential to become like Him. I follow His gospel because I know that He only wants what's best for me and following His gospel will bring me eternal happiness. My testimony gives me confidence that when a loved one passes away, I can see them again. I feel blessed to know that I'm never alone when I'm living my life in the way the Lord wants me to.

How I live my faith

I've served as the Deacon's and Teacher's quorum president and Priest's 1st and 2nd assistant. I use to help plan youth activities for the stake. I am a hometeacher and I occasionally teach lessons to the youth.
