Hi I'm Jacob Read

I am the oldest of my three siblings. I love the outdoors and playing sports. I am and always have been a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a family of 6 and am the oldest child. I am the first child to serve a mission. I love to camp and be in the outdoors. I especially love to mountain bike and fish. I both fly fish and use a normal rod and reel. As a youth I participated in the Boy Scouts program. I plan on going to college and afterwards join the Airforce.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, or a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, because I know it is God's true church on the earth today. I have learned and gained a testimony that God has a plan for us. He has sent his son, Jesus Christ, to be an example to us and atone for our sins. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet and that he helped restore God's church on the earth today. I know the book of mornon is true, and that it is truly the word of God. Knowing this has helped me countless times in my life. I sincerely want others to gain a similar knowledge for themselves because it will be a great help in their life.

How I live my faith

I go to church every Sunday and do various activities with the youth in my neighborhood every week. I have been in charge of different youth groups and likewise had to plan and carry out various activities. I also participate in service projects often.
