Hi I'm Jake Mabe

I grew up an Army Brat...I'm an Autistic Adult Father of a Autistic Son...I'm a Mormon.

About Me

 I am not an expert of any nature but rather I desire you to know that I am a grateful husband of sacred and treasured wife and a passionate father to my autistic son. I am a devoted loving son to my goodly parents in whom they have blessed my enitre life with love and knowledge that has given me understanding to how I should llive and give of myself to the benefit of others being of a career military family I had the duty stations of the world as my classroom. For that has had a life long devotion to serve in what ever capacity in the communities I live with my family. Recently I learned that the uniqueness of my own life was revealed to me through the life of my son as being I too am Autistic. My sacred relationships with my wife and my son are trully the treasurses I can never stop being so greatful for. I reflect my faith and beliefs through my talents in creative writing and graphic design and my passion for progressing the positive use of technology in the everyday lives people everywhere.

Why I am a Mormon

My wife likes to always tell me"You were always a mormon but just didn't know it" that always gets anyone to laugh. Because I never saw myself like that. Before I became a convert to the church I was living my life in most respects to what the expectation of every mormon is. I had been part of a few different christian sects but never really felt the spirit and always felt that there was something missing out of it. Because at that time before joining I was already living a life free from smoking, drinking, and I had never put anything into my body that would be harmful. I prayed regularly, read the scriptures and attempted to live the scriptures to the best of my understanding. But it wasn't because I imply joined the church because of my wife. The two years before we were married She would demonstrate to me her testimony and the manner she chose to live her life by the principles of her church. She never once attempted to force me or made it condition of our growing relationship. It wasn't until after we were married and she was going to sacrifice her attendance simply because she still didn't want to force me to attend, that I was moved by the Spirit to seek out the Missionaries and take her to church. It only took four days to get through the discussions, and then I got to go the Stake Center to view the General Conference and watched and listened to the Profit say "Your are a trailblazer...a Pioneer...because you have chosen to become a part of this church..." I was soon baptized and the Spirit confirmed for me "This is the Day you have been searching for.."

How I live my faith

 I would not label my choice to committ myself to living the faith as anything as typical or as the normal Mormon life. I am Autistic so for any kind of interaction with other members can be different than most are. I awake everyday early enough to do my scripture reading first. Then work on my lesson that I teach for class, because Iam a Gospel Essentials Teacher, other personal education interests, and then praying, and getting ready to goto work. I chose to live the gospel by loving my wife and our Special needs son. I am blessed with the responsabilities because God loves me.
