Hi I'm Jacob

I'm from Colorado. I love football. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest of 4 kids and I have the best parents ever! I love my family and I love being with them. I am really competitive and love competing in really anything. I played football for 10 years and also managed to play some soccer, basketball, baseball, flag football and even ran track during the course of those ten years. I am an avid football fan and spend most of my free time outdoors. Right now I am serving a 2 year volunteer mission. As a missionary, I mainly teach people about Jesus Christ and do a lot of community service and even though it has its challenges I love being able to meet many new people and serve them and help them build their own faith in Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a Mormon family and always went to church because it was what my mom and dad wanted me to do. It wasn't until figured out for myself if this was something I should do that I gained a desire to go because I wanted to and not because someone else wanted me to. I found out for myself by praying to my Father in Heaven and asked Him if this really was the true church. After I asked Him, I felt this overwhelming peace and calm come over me. The feeling was so powerful I knew this had to be true. His church and this gospel has since brought me so much happiness. I have never been so happy as when I've been going to church and living the teachings of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

Right now I am serving a 2 year mission. I am trying to follow Chirst's example He set as a missionary and I'm teaching people the same things He taught while He was on the earth. I also perform a lot of community service and love to help people because that's what Jesus would want me to do. As a missionary I live my faith by going out and teaching the doctrines and principles that make up our very faith. I am sharing them with those around me and am helping people learn how they can return to live with their Heavenly Father by helping them see the example that Jesus set for them while He was on the earth and then, guiding them on their own paths back to God.
