Hi I'm Jacob

I live in San Diego. I love learning about my ancestors. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love the ocean. I play the violin. I play volleyball. I am serving a mission in Peru Arequipa. I plan on attending college when i get back in two years.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love and understand the teachings of The Book of Mormon. I have read it and i know it is the true word of God. It has brought peace and happiness to my life and to the lives of those around me.

How I live my faith

Every month I go out with guys my age and give the sacrament to shut-ins, people who are unable to atend church. I share what i know with my friends at school and at work and I am always willing to talk about Jesus Christ. I love my call to serve as a Missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because I love sharing the beauty of The Gospel with others.

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Jesus Christ suffered for our sins so that we could have life. He gave his life because he loves us and he wants us to return to our Heavenly Father. "No unclean thing can enter into the kingdom of God," (3 Nephi 27: 19) but because of Christ sacrifice "though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow". We can accomplish all things through his atonement and all we have is because of him. I am so grateful for his infinite love and affection. I am grateful for the chance to apply His atonement my life every day. Show more Show less
