Hi I'm Jacob Szuch

I grew up in Idaho, I'm a collegiate athlete, I love helping those in need, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Growing up in an innocent place like Boise, Idaho, people might think I haven't experienced much. This assumption however, might be a little misguided. I have lived in Idaho, Oregon and Hawaii, while playing collegiate sports and attending school. As easy going as that might sound, my life hasn't been incredibly easy. During the last few years. my mother has passed away, I have left my childhood home, gained 7 new siblings and a step mother, lived thousands of miles away from the mainland, and received my mission call to travel even further and serve our Heavenly Father in France. Change seems to be the only constant thing in my life,.........besides the gospel of Jesus Christ. Through all of my tough times, easy times, experiences and places I've been, I've always known just how much Heavenly Father loves me and wants me to serve others. I love change.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, but that is not why I am a Mormon. I know through the experiences I have had and the confirmation of the spirit that this church is true and right.

How I live my faith

I believe that faith is simple. I live faith by exercising my agency to make the right choices because I have faith that what Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ have deemed as commandments is what I need to do. I live the teachings of the Prophet and those prophets and Apostles that have gone before him. I follow them because I have faith that they receive revelation from God.
