Hi I'm Jacob Thompson

I grew up in Colorado as a member of the Church. Currently I am preparing to serve my two mission in Puebla, Mexico.

About Me

I just barely graduated highschool and was able to compete at the state level in competive swimming. Currently I am preparing to serve my two year mission in Puebla, Mexico. I hope to become a concept artist or an illustrator after college and I am currently trying to get into the habit of drawing in my sketchbook every day. I hope to work on movies because I would like to have an influence on those things that have inspired me for years.

Why I am a Mormon

My first spiritual experience happend when I was only fourteen years old. I was watching General Conference or in other words hearing teachings given by our current prophets and suddenly had warm swelling motions in my heart. I knew that the spirit had touched me and I began my quest to further these feelings that brought me to the truth. I began reading the scriptures, praying, and taking bible and book of mormon study groups. The logic and spiritual feelings I have had led me to the conclusion that this is the church with the whole gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

In my ward or church I have served as president of a few youth groups and I am currently preparing to serve a two year mission for the church.
