Hi I'm Jacob

I grew up in Idaho. I love skiing. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I just graduated from high school and am planning on going to college and becoming an Electrical or Mechanical Engineer. I love to go skiing with my friends during the winter and I love to read books. Some of my favorite book series have been Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan, The Mistborn Trilogy by Brandon Sanderson, and Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a family that was Mormon which is how I got my start there. However I eventually had to decide for myself if I really believed what was taught and if I wanted to stay. I was taught that God loves us and He will answer our questions if we ask Him. So I studied the scriptures for several years and then prayed and asked Him if this was the right thing for me to be doing. I got an overwhelming sense of love and a confirmation that this was the right thing for me. I know that God lives and that He loves His children. I know that Jesus Christ came and suffered for us in Gethsemane so that we can return and be with Him and our Heavenly Father. These truths have helped me throughout my life with difficult times and trials and I know they are true. That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by deciding to set aside 2 years of my life to go and serve a mission so I can teach others about my religion and how it's blessed my life. I also have helped people to learn more about their family history and how to find relatives from the past that they may not know about. I have served as a pianist in the church for a couple months too.
