Hi I'm Jake

About Me

Hey I'm Jake, I grew up in Oregon. I am currently serving in the Idaho Pocatello Mission 2010-2012. Best mission hands down! I like to sing and play guitar/ukelele. I love all sports especially basketball and lacrosse. I'm a health nut and enjoy cross fit and lifting weights. Go Blazers!

Why I am a Mormon

Hey I am a Mormon because i choose to be. I may have grown up in the faith but we have agency to choose. This gospel has blessed my life tremendously. I have an awesome family that supports me in everything I do. I wouldn't be where I am today without knowing this gospel is true. I know that God lives, that the atonement is real, that Jesus Christ is our savior. That the Book of Mormon is true and if we read, ponder, and pray about it, we can know for ourselves the power and blessings it contains. I know that the the priesthood is the power of God and was restored through Joseph Smith. I know that prayer works and if we pray with an open heart and real intent the truth will be manifested through the power of the Holy Ghost. Families are Forever.

How I live my faith

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

Jake
A testimony is a spiritual truth given to us by the Holy Ghost. It's simple and to the point. Example: I know that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the Savior of the World. Heavenly Father Sent his son to Atone for the sins of the world so that one day we may return to live with him and our families forever if we do follow his Gospel. Through faith in Jesus Christ and his Atonement, Repentance, Baptism, recieving the Gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring faithfully to the end we may find peace and joy in this life and the life hereafter. I know that Jesus Christ organized his church during his mortal ministry and that His same church has been restored through the Prophet Joseph Smith. Show more Show less
