Hi I'm Jake Banta

I'm a Mormon and I want to be the voice of a cartoon character some day.

About Me

I LOVE ADRENALINE! I grew up in Rexburg Idaho, where my friends and I went rock climbing, hiking, cliff diving, camping, and shooting. A lot. I'm kind of a pyro, but thankfully my guardian angels are the best in the business (I'm kidding!)

Why I am a Mormon

I was lucky enough to be born into the church but I chose to stay active in it because of the sense of security I get from knowing what my purpose is in life and that my Heavenly Father is always watching out for me. The church has been my number one source of happiness in the world and I intend to share that happiness with others.

How I live my faith

No easy thing is worth much. Yes there are a lot of rules, but God is our loving heavenly father and I know that he gives us commandments only because he loves us and wants to help us avoid the pitfalls that the rest of the world seems to glamorize. I have learned that true freedom can only exist when we are in line with God's commandments. The scriptures say it the best, wickedness never was happiness.
