Hi I'm Jacob Watson

I'm a ref, a member of a big family, lover of sports, missionary in Columbus Ohio July 2016-2018, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I grew up in Layton Ut. I now live in Elk Ridge Ut. I have grown up in sports, and love spending time with my family. I love the Lord and know he loves me. I come from a family of 12 kids. 8 boys 4 girls. Our family home evenings are so much fun. After my mission concludes in July 2018 I will go to Utah Valley University. I want to go into business and plan to work for Disney, how I have no idea. I love Disney, sports, food, and my family. I love the gospel and the direction it has given me. Before my mission I was a referee for Salem City Recreation. I umpired baseball/softball, refed football, and refer basketball. It was fun but also crazy at the same time. I love my family so much and lost my second oldest brother in 6th grade. It was a tough time but helped my testimony more than anything else. I truly know I will be with him again someday.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know it is right. There has been many times in my life that I have question but the feelings that I receive overwhelm my body. I know it to be true. I know that it has blessed my life. There are always problems we face but the Lord will always help us if we seek for his guidance.

How I live my faith

I try to work hard in everything I do and try to always come when called. I have continually learned that without applying the gospel teachings I get depressed and lose hope. It is a battle and it's better to fight than to be attacked. The atonement of Jesus Christ is an amazing blessing that we have to help us become Gods trusted servants. I strive to be kind and patient with those I struggle with. I seek to become better and know I make many mistakes.

How are the activities of the Mormon missionaries funded?
