Hi I'm Jacob Contreras

I am a BYU soccer player. I graduated highschool early to attend college before my mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a collegiate soccer player. I love the outdoors and participating in sports or physical activities. I come from a larger family, and have six siblings. I participated in Student Government in higschool, so leadership also plays a large role in my life. I enjoy listening to music and watching movies.

Why I am a Mormon

I follow this gospel because it has brought so many blessings into my life. I know that my Savior loves me, and has a plan for me as well. I choose to be a member of this church because it teaches about Christ and His sacrifice for all mankind. Through this gospel we can find peace and love in our hearts for others. I know that I can be forgiven for any mistakes I have made, and that knowledge is what keeps me going day to day.

How I live my faith

I was given the calling to be a teacher in one of our classes at church. By receiving this calling, I have been able to try and prepare lessons that will suit best for everyone in the class. I am also able to do my best to help others around me learn about Christ and His love for all of us individually. Personally I do my best to help anyone overcome struggles that they have and find peace within themselves and to feel our Heavenly Fathers love for us.
