A large element of motivation for Pioneers was their faith. Michelle Jacobson found that same internal flame when she met LDS missionaries a few years ago in an Illinois basement during a tornado warning. "I was baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on December 14, 2013. I realized that no matter how hard I tried, I could never be fulfilled the way I wanted to be without an active relationship with God, and wanted to show I was serious about following Him." stated Michelle. Now a member for a year and a half she continues to credit her faith for all positive aspects of her life. A little over a year ago Michelle moved to Utah, started working at the Provo LDS Missionary Training Center, and was married in the Draper temple to Eric Jacobson. "My life is currently nowhere near where I thought it would be," Michelle continues. "But I can say with confidence that it is 100% better because of my faith."
