Hi I'm Coleman Jacklin

I'm from West Mountain, Utah. I love doing anything in the mountains & anything sports. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm Coleman and I am currently serving a LDS mission in the Montana Billings Mission. I grew up in West Mountain, Utah. I love riding horses, hunting, fishing, riding ATVs, and anything in the mountains. I love all sports but especially baseball, football, and basketball. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I love watching movies, listening to music, and eating good food.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised Mormon and that's all I have ever known. I went to church with my parents and family growing up and it just became normal to me. It wasn't until high school until I realized the church was true for myself. Even though I never doubted it, I had never prayed about it but when I did I received a quiet answer by a good warm feeling in my heart that it was true. Serving a mission was something I always planned on ever since I was little but, as the time got closer I questioned if it was something I really wanted to do. I have been in some pretty scary car and 4 wheeler accidents and am lucky to be alive. I know Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ were looking out for me in those and have a plan for me. The atonement of Jesus Christ is such an amazing gift we have and I know the Savior has been through all the hard times already for me. Because of this I am willing to give 2 years of my life to serve Him and our Heavenly Father. Going to church and praying are also some ways we can show our love and thanks to God and Jesus Christ. I know they love me and you!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to church every Sunday, saying daily personal prayers, and reading from the scriptures especially the Book of Mormon. I also look for ways to help others in any way possible. I am away from my family, friends, and home right now on a 2 year LDS mission sharing the gospel and the LDS beliefs with others so they can know of its joy!
