Hi I'm Jacob

I'm from Bountiful, Utah. I'm 18 years old and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to play basketball! I'm not the tallest guy out on the court or the fastest guy. But I love the game. I have 4 older sisters and 2 older brothers. They're all amazing and 4 of them are married. I'm a recent high school graduate and preparing to leave on a 2 year mission to Taiwan Taichung.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church and my parents are both members. I didn't always know that the church was true. I had to gain a testimony of the truthfulness by myself. It began when I was about 16 years old and I read the Book of Mormon for the first time. As I read I prayed regularly and asked God if what is taught in it true. I know that the Holy Ghost testified to me that this is the true church and that Joseph Smith was able to translate the Book of Mormon by the power of God. I am so thankful for my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I feel their love for me every day. I love this gospel and love the happiness it brings into my life. I want to share that happiness any way I can.

How I live my faith

In my church I am called as a leader in my ward for the young men ages 16-18. I love those guys and am so grateful for their example to me. I home teach 2 families with my dad that are both quite elderly. They're amazing people and I hope I'm as spry as they are when I'm their age.
