Hi I'm Jacob Gowers

I grew up in South Jordan, UT, and I just graduated high school and completed my Eagle. I like to play soccer. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a guy who loves to play soccer, other sports are fun and all but soccer is my number one. I find that service can acutally be a really fun thing to do, especially when you get to see the smile that the person you helped gives you. I completed my Eagle by building planter boxes for the Senoir center in my area that is more easily excessible to them.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that we have a Heavenly Father above who is constantly watching us and loves everyone of us. He is always willing to give us a second chance to grow and improve becoming better than before. I know that this church was restored today so that we could partake in the blessings it offer to us and others. Without out this church I feel I would be constanlty just drifitng from one thing to the next in this life trying to find some form of happiness, where as within it I can constatnly find that happiness

How I live my faith

Serving others is a great way to take some stress out of your life, it is what I have done whenever I feel overwhelmed. I also enjoy participating in the callings I have through my ward, it offers so many opportunites to help others.

Why do Mormons perform baptisms for the dead?

Jacob Gowers
I love this wonderful idea of baptisms for the dead. We perform this in order to give those who didn't have the chance to hear of the Gospel the opportunity to accept or reject it while they await in the spirit world. Show more Show less
