Hi I'm Jake

I love music, motorcycles, and am now a full time missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Provo, UT and am 20 years old. I am currently serving a mission in Minneapolis speaking spanish! Before my mission.. I have loved music -listening to it, playing it, and going to concerts- since I was in elementary school. I also love running, swimming, cycling, anything like that. I have been very into cars and motorcycles for a long time - grew up riding dirt bikes and bought a bullet bike when I was 17. I will be getting another one after my mission! Besides that, I just like to spend time with all the people I care about, because when it comes down to it that is what really matters!

Why I am a Mormon

Well, growing up in Utah, I was surrounded by the church from a very young age. Essentially all of my family is active in the church, and the majority of my friends growing up were also members. Even with all that support, it took me a very long time to learn for myself that the church was even something I wanted in my life. Over time, the Lord started preparing me to become the person I needed to be. Finally it got to the point where I realized that this was God's church on earth, and I needed to align myself with it. Almost immediately after that, I started to prepare myself for a mission, and left about one year later. I am absolutely loving this experience because I know how the gospel has changed and blessed my life, and I love being able to share that same gospel with other people who can benefit from it.

How I live my faith

For this 2 year period, I serve as a full time missionary in Minnesota. I have the wonderful oppurtunity of dedicating every day helping other people and sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with them. You don't have to be a missionary to help others though. When I finish my mission I intend to always keep the habits I am forming out here of serving others, studying the gospel, and trying always to apply its teachings in my life.
