Hi I'm Jake

I'm a Texan, an eagle scout, and a missionary. I have a passion for politics and music. I'm also a Mormon.

About Me

I was raised in an LDS family. God has blessed me with an awesome family. I love music and politics. I consider myself a conservative but I'm almost a libertarian. I'm a big fan of Glenn Beck. Politics is kind of like a hobby for me, kind of like sports with some people. I want to major in political science at BYU Idaho. When it comes to music I like all sorts of stuff but my favorite band is called Jack's Mannequin. I like alternative/indie rock. I also like the blues and classic rock. I'm also a huge fan of the Dallas Cowboys. I follow the NFL. I have a unique assortment of interests. I like to work hard and have fun at the same time. I'm now serving a mission in the Michigan Lansing Mission, otherwise known as the "MLM". I'm working hard and having a blast.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a "mormon" because I have learned to recognize gods love. I have been blessed tremendously. Another big reason is that I know the book of mormon is true. It has helped me and my family in many ways.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be like christ. I try to show love to others by word and deed. I'm currently serving a full time mission in the Michigan Lansing Mission.

What do Mormons believe about family?

Jake
We believe that families can be eternal and that families are a blessing. The gospel of Jesus Christ can strengthen families. Many problems that families face today can be healed through keeping the commandments and striving to follow the example of Christ. Show more Show less

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Jake
We proselyte so that we can talk to as many people as we can about the gospel. Our purpose is to help bring people to Christ. The more people we can talk to, the better. Show more Show less

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Jake
You can know by asking god with a sincere heart. If you have an open mind and you really mean it god will answer. It's all about faith if we do our part god will help us. Because he loves us. I know that is true and that he will answer your prayers.    Show more Show less
