Hi I'm Jacob Watkins

I'm a missionary in the WVCM. I'm a competitive cereal eater, love to make people laugh, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm from Roy, Utah, and am now serving a mission in West Virginia! I love my family, friends, and the Book of Mormon. I've been skiing, playing soccer, the piano, and basketball since I was 5. Cello since I was 12. I'll do anything that's outside and am always up for a good adventure. ALWAYS!!!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the LDS Church and I love everything about it. Through past and current experiences, my testimony continues to grow strong. I certainly wouldn't be where I am without my Mom and Dad. I just can't explain how much they've done for me. I'm glad my testimony has a strong foundation, so when temptation arises, it won't be shaken. Probably the one thing that hast been the life changer, is the Book of Mormon. I like to say it's my MVP(most valuable possession). I'm grateful for the message it contains. It certainly has power. Now I wish to share its message of peace with those around me. Do all you can to read and study it's words! For in them contains the words of Eternal life.

How I live my faith

Of course we all need to endure to the end. That's exactly what I try to do. As we all know, it starts with faith. Doing everything with faith and diligence is the key. Other people will see how we live our lives and hopefully they will want to do the same. Just keep in mind the primary song. "I'm trying to be like Jesus." Be gentle, and loving; in dead, and in thought. I personally find myself constantly learning about how to overcome evil in any degree. I know that we truly are in the latter part of these Last Days. Soon Christ will reign personally on the earth and those who were true and faithful to the covenants made, will be rewarded with unthinkable blessings that come from our loving Father in Heaven. NOW truly is the time! So the answer to "How I Live My Faith" is by preparing myself and helping others prepare in all ways for the 2nd coming of our Savior Jesus Christ.
