Hi I'm Jacob Squire

I grew up in the heart of America, and I have a passion for song-writing. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've led a fairly simple life from being born and raised in Kansas. I'm currently in the middle of college and hope to be able to go into business like my father as my education progresses. Some of my favorite things in life are song writing and recording, enjoying all genres of music, spending time with family and friends (even just chatting), finding a good hole-in-the-wall restaurant and frequenting it, and taking in the world around me one breath at a time.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I have read the Book of Mormon and found out for myself that it was true. I am Mormon because I know the church is true, and that it truly is led by modern day revelation. I am Mormon because this gospel makes me happy. For the past 6-7 years I have suffered from depression, and the one thing that could always quell my mind and bring me peace was this church and gospel. Through my experiences I have grown closer to my Savior than I ever thought I could, and that relationship is precious to me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in a few ways. First off I am serving a mission in the Italy Milan mission for the Lord, and back at home have done everything from being a gospel doctrine teacher to a home teacher. Most of all, though, I live my faith by being kind to others. I firmly believe that we need to be our brother's keeper. In order to become like Christ we must. I live my faith by serving others at every chance I get and by making sure that people know they are important, and that they are loved and wanted. It could be something small like a smile or note, or it could be something bigger. It's a part of my everyday life.
