Hi I'm Jacob

I am grew up in Idaho. I am currently serving my mission in Guatemala. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to play the guitar and piano. I also enjoy going on hikes and camping trips to beautiful mountains and lakes. I love art: painting, coloring, doodling, etc.

Why I am a Mormon

I have chosen to be a member of this church because I have come to know for myself that it is God's true church. I remember when I was about 10 years old and my Sunday School teacher challenged all of us kids to pray about the Book of Mormon and ask if it was a true book. I remember going into my room and kneeling down and asking God if this book was true, and the feeling that I got after that prayer was amazing. I felt so much joy and warmth inside my chest. I felt happiness that I've never felt before. I felt like I could fly! That moment has stuck with me all these years. It has been something that I've needed to fall back on when I've experienced hard times and doubts. Because I know that the Book of Mormon is true, I know that everything else in the church is true, including prophets and apostles, Temple work, family history work, etc. I know that this is God's true church on the earth and I am so thankful to be a part of it!

How I live my faith

Right now, I am serving in the church as a missionary. I go out and teach others about Jesus Christ and His restored church on the earth for two years of my life. I help others understand why they are here on the earth, where they came from, and where they will go after this life. I help them understand what it takes to make it back to live with God and His Son, Jesus Christ, after this life, and help them take those necessary steps to reach that goal. I love being a missionary!
