Hi I'm Jacob

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love music, literature and the outdoors. I love people, but not big groups. Dancing is one of my favorite pastimes, even though I'm no good at it, and I also enjoy roadtrips and backpacking. I'm the oldest of six kids and I love my family very much. Currently I am studying Sociology with a focus on International Development, and intend to spend the rest of my life working with humanitarian organizations around the world.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I wanted to know God. I read the Book of Mormon, received a witness through the power of the Holy Ghost that it truly did testify of Jesus Christ, his life, mission and divinity. From that day to this, I have done my best to live according to its teachings, and though it has not always been easy, it has always made me happy and I am extremely grateful for it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith the best I can every day. I study the scriptures, seek communication with God through prayer, look for opportunities to serve and help others and try and act as the Savior would if he were here. I serve as I have been asked in my local congregation, as the secretary for the men's organization. We ensure that the temporal and spiritual needs of the men and women are cared for and seek every opportunity to lift and improve those around us.
