Hi I'm Jake

I'm a husband, father of two crazy boys, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am currently studying Business Administration. I like to play soccer, and I just got back from the World Cup in South Africa. I enjoy meeting and talking to new people.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because from a young age I have known that this is our Heavenly Father's true church. My parents encouraged me from a young age to pray and read the scriptures. Ever since I can remember I have known that this is the true church. I know through the power of the Holy Ghost that Jesus Christ lives and is the Savior of the entire world. I know that he leads and guides His church through a living prophet, and that we have a living prophet today. Through the same power of the Holy Ghost, I know that Joseph Smith is a prophet and that President Thomas S. Monson is the living prophet today. I also know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and that answers are found as we study it. I know that the greatest joy in life comes from living the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I currently am part of a Student Singles Ward (it is a ward that has single students from the age 18-30) and serve as the Stake Sunday School President. I do my best to help Sunday School Teachers learn methods to help others learn the simple doctrines and principle found in the scriptures. I also serve as a home teacher and visit a couple of apartments of single students and do my best to be there friend and help meet their needs while we attend school. I also teach the youth (ages 14-18) in a weekly program called seminary. In seminary we study the scriptures. This year we are studying "The Doctrine and Covenants."

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Jake
Yes I do. I know this because I have prayed and asked God if Thomas S. Monson truly is a prophet of God. By the power of the Holy Ghost my prayer was answered. This knowledge is a great blessing in my life because i know that God does speak to his servant just as in days of old, and if I listen to the prophets counsel I know that I will be blessed and kept safe.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Jake
The Missionaries will share with you the simple truths of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. They will share with you that God has called a prophet once again on the earth, and that through his prophet the Lord revealed the simple truths of our Heavenly Father's plan for all of His children and what we must do to be able to return with our Heavenly Father again. The missionaries will invite you to find out for yourself if what they share is true by having you read The Book of Mormon, and to pray and ask God if the message that they shared with you are true.
