Hi I'm Jacob

I grew up in Salt Lake City, I just graduated high school, I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am 18 years old and have been called to serve in the Alabama, Birmingham mission. I graduated early from high school in 2017. I worked full time as a driver at a produce warehouse. I spent most of my high school years working hard at school, work, and home.

Why I am a Mormon

My grandfather was the first of my family to join the church. He was converted in Germany, and made his trek to Utah for freedom of religion. He has a strong testimony, something I relied on to obtain my own testimony. I have a testimony of this gospel, and of its truthfulness. I know that we have a true and living prophet, President Thomas S. Monson. I know that Jospeh Smith translated The Book of Mormon, and that he was a true prophet. I know that The Book of Mormon is also a true book.

How I live my faith

I recently served as a ward missionary. I was able to help others around me, and in my ward, in more ways than I could imagine. Throughout my years in the young mens, I was able to serve in many callings. One that really stood out to me was the opportunity to serve on Seminary Council. I was able to be apart of a group that put others before themselves. This in turn taught me how to better serve others and God.
