Hi I'm Jacob

I love Cooking, Traveling, Music, and Cats. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm just a normal guy that loves to cook. I am currently serving the Lord on a two year mission in Long Beach, California. Before I decided to do this, I spent my time attending college at Brigham Young University, programming, and hanging out with my friends. While attending BYU, I was studying statistics and computer programming. However, when I return from my missionary service, I will be majoring in Culinary Arts, and training to become a chef. My dream is to be the head chef of a cruise ship, so I can travel the world and do what I love to do; cook! In addition to this, I also want to have my own cooking show on TV. Some of my other interests include lacrosse, golf, baseball, and hockey. I also love the internet, sloths, and cats. They are some of the greatest creations God has ever given to us.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the Mormon religion, molded by it. I am grateful for the person this religion has made me. However, it wasn't until I recognized how big of an impact religion has made in my life to actually understand how much my Heavenly Father loves me. The realization of this didn't occur until I had sincerely sought to know of this for myself. The belief that our Heavenly Father gave His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ to die for our sins so we can be clean through His atonement, to again return to live with Him means everything to me. That belief is the most precious thing that I have. I know that this is the one and only true church on the earth today. I know that Joseph Smith was God's chosen prophet to restore this church to the earth. I came to know of this through reading the Book of Mormon and coming to know how much God expects of us, and how obedience to the commandments of God will help us on our journey through this life. I know the Book of Mormon to be true. I know of the power of prayer. I know God listens to, and answers our prayers. I know that anyone with a willing heart can receive answers to their prayers as well.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a two year mission for the Lord in Long Beach, California. I am dedicating all my time and attention to serving the Lord and teaching the people the gospel of Jesus Christ, as restored through the prophet Joseph Smith. Before my mission, I would attend church and help my friends and family in everything they do.
