Hi I'm Jake

I Love Baseball, My Family ,The Sunshine, and Serving the Lord. I Rep the SLC. And I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I was raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. And I love it! It's a nice place to live, and plus it's Home to the Greatest Snow On Earth! I truly believe that. My interests are Snowboarding, Singing, Listening to music, Being outside in the sunshine, Spending time with my family, Spending time/Going on dates with my lovely girlfriend Lyndsie, and Playing/Watching the game of baseball! Other than my loved ones, and the Gospel, nothing is more important. I love baseball! Go Angels!!! But all of these things that I love are on hold right now because currently I am serving a mission in Raleigh, North Carolina. Serving the Lord, and the wonderful people of North Carolina is what's most important to me right now. It's an honor being able to go out and share our message with everyone, everyday! There is no greater blessing. And I must say. I Love being a representative of our Savior. I do work son!

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church by the two greatest parents in the world, but I'm mormon because I know that this is the only true church in the world. I have come to the knowledge of that by myself. I read and pondered The Book Of Mormon, and desired to know if it was true. So I went to the source of all truth, and knowledge, Heavenly Father, and asked in Faith, and through the Holy Ghost the testifyer of truth, I received my own witness. I continue to grow and strengthen my own conversion everyday by reading from The Book Of Mormon, and appyling the principles I learn while reading into my own life. I know that The Book Of Mormon is the most true book that we are able to hold in our hands. Everyday that I read from it is a blessing. When I truely read from it, I can feel the love that Heavenly Father, and Jesus Christ have for me. It allows me to strengthen my faith, and I find that everyday that I read from it that it makes me happier! 

How I live my faith

 I'm currently living my faith by serving a mission for the Church. And being a representative of Jesus Christ, and bringing others closer to the gospel everyday.  

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Jake
Increasing faith is something that we all want/need! I seek for an increase of Faith daily! So how can we increase it? First off we need to have Faith. And I can tell you that when I was younger, I didn't have faith in anything. Until a trial in my life came upon me, and I needed to know if there was something else out there that I could depend on for help. So I had Faith that God, would help me, and he did. My faith was sparked by a trial I had, but it increased as I picked up the scriptures that my parents gave me and I decided to read. I Read a scripture from The Book Of Mormon, 2Nephi 323 "Angels speak by the power of the Holy Ghost, wherefore they speak the words of Christ, wherefore I say unto you, FEAST upon the words of Christ, for the Words of Christ will tell you all things what ye shall do." In that moment I needed my faith to increase, and by reading the Book Of Mormon, it did. I know that by reading from the Book of Mormon daily, and by following the commandments, and by serving others, that we can continually strenghten our faith! It all starts with Desire, and ends in action. Show more Show less

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Jake
Nobody in our church is required to serve a mission. We do know though that it is a blessing to serve the lord in a mission. It is an honor, and a privilege for me to be currently serving a mission for the true church. I witness miracles every single day! But As Latter Day Saints, we are not required to serve missions. We have our own agency to choose whether or not we want to. Serving a mission doesn't make anyone more qualified than the next. It just helps strenghten our own testimonies for serving, and helps bring others closer to the Gospel Of Jesus Christ. Show more Show less

Why do some call Mormonism a cult?

Jake
Because many people do not know what a cult really is, and because they know absolutely nothing about our Church. People are scared about what they don't know about, and so when they are scared they make up lies, and fabrications that are extremely false. Show more Show less
