Hi I'm Jake

I'm a Cowboy and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I grew up on cattle ranch in Utah. I enjoy doing anything that gets me outside, but mainly hunting and riding horses. I'm currently serving a mission in Oklahoma, and loving it.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church. I grew up relying on my parents testimony. I eventually needed to know for myself if the church was true and if Joseph Smith was a prophet. I had heard that all it took to know for yourself was to pray so that's what I did. As a result I gained a testimony of Joseph Smith and the book of Mormon. That has played a major role in my live. One of the biggest reasons that I'm a Mormon is because it just makes sense that God would call prophets in our time if he is the same yesterday today and forever. I also like the idea of receiving personal revelation. We don't have to rely on someone Else's testimony to know that things are true or to know what we should do because all we have to do is pray and ask God and he will reveal what we need to do to us.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by helping others come to know Jesus Christ and helping them to know that this is his church restored to the earth today. I try to live my live in accordance with the things that Christ taught and trying to be the best example of a follower of Christ I can be.
