Hi I'm Jacob

I live in Utah. I am an Eagle Scout. I am a missionary. I want to become a Cyber Security Professional. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Utah and have lived there my whole life. I lived in St. George until the summer before my Junior Year. I now live in Northern Utah and am a Senior in High School. I am an Eagle Scout. I love Spikeball, Repelling, Running, Hiking, and Everything in the Outdoors. I play the Piano, Guitar, Trumpet, and Euphonium. I am in the Wind Ensemble at my school and love music. I love technology and am currently taking an IT course after school. I love the gospel and everything it has to offer. I plan on serving a mission after high school and am excited to share the gospel with others.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and so I have always gone to church, prayed, and read my scriptures, but it was not until recently that I gained a testimony of these things for myself. I know through personal experiences I have had in my life that the church is true and that the leaders are called by God and truly inspired. I have seen the gospel change my life and I am truly happier when living it. I am so glad that I have the gospel in my life and that I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Some ways I live my faith is by attending church each Sunday, going to Tuesday activities, listening to my church leaders, serving in my community and always making sure that I am keeping my standards at all times.

Why don’t Mormons drink coffee, tea, or alcohol? What is the Mormon Church’s law of health and proper diet?

Mormons believe that when we obey God's commandments he blesses us. One of the commandments God has given us is to not smoke, use drugs, drink coffee and tea, chew tobacco, and drink alcohol. Science today has begun to agree with these teachings. I know that we are healthier and receive blessings when we obey this Commandment. Show more Show less
