Hi I'm Jacob Woods

I'm from East Tennessee, born and raised. I'm currently in the Provo missionary training center, headed to Tonga. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

i am an Eagle Scout, i was Home Schooled all of my schooling years. i love playing sports like baseball, basketball, and football. i am a redhead, but i also have some native american blood in me. Currently in the provo missionary training center preparing to serve a 2 year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day saints in Nuku'alofa Tonga!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because i have received a witness from the Holy Ghost that has confirmed to me that The Book of Mormon is the true word of God, that through the prophet Joseph Smith, Jesus Christ Restored His Church back on this earth, that there are prophets and apostles on the earth today, just as there were in biblical times. i know that Thomas S Monson is the prophet of the world today and that we can grow closer to Christ if we heed his council. i know this is the one true church of Christ.

How I live my faith

one of my favorite things i do in my church is that i sometimes play piano for the primary children (2-11 year olds) and i sometimes teach them as well. Jesus taught us to become like little children and it is amazing to work with little children and see how innocent and humble and christlike they are. i also am an assistant in my youth program with the 16-18 year olds. i also enjoy planning activities for the youth in the East Tennessee area, as i am on the Youth Planning Committee for the area.
