Hi I'm Jake

I'm a Californian who loves off-roading, baseball, snowboarding, and wakeboarding. Doing the best I can in life, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I like to do many different things. I wakeboard, snowboard, love off-roading, sector 9 longboard, play baseball, rock climb, mountain bike, love anyting that has to do with water, and love to camp. I am someone who likes to have fun, but at the same time love to work. My favorite job I have had, was working at in-n-out burger. I am very proud to be a Latter-Day Saint, and enjoy the beauty that are father in heaven has placed on this Earth for us. I love to be outside to enjoy those things around me. That is why I do such a wide spectrum of things, while having a little bit of fun of course. I grew up in Southern California, & live in Murrieta with my Mom & two sisters. My parents got divorsed when I was very young, but I luckly have a very good relationship with both of my parents. I love my family very much, & could not have asked for a better mother. I love to laugh, & have a good time. I believe with anything, if you have the right attitude/ perspective, you can have fun with it, or it can be a great learning experience. I am greatful for the experiences that have happend in my life. They have made me the person I am today, & enjoy each an everday the perspective I & many other Latter-Day Saints share, that as we do what we are supposed to, everything will work out in the end.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, because with the knowledge that I have gained through my many years of investigating, even though I was born into this faith, I still had to figure out why this religion was going to help me. I came to know that in a very real sense that my Father in Heaven loves me, and wanted to answer not only my prayers, but the prayers of the ones who loved me. My testimony is my own, and I know for a fact that those who are sincerely trying to find the truth will, if they just ask God. That's why I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

is by being as christ like as possible. I have served as a youth leader for my church, & I am currently serving a mission in up state New York, where I am doing the best I can to bring people to the great happiness I have found, through the Book Of Mormon, following a living Prophet, & praying to know that it is true myself. I am so great to be able to serve my Lord & Savior Jesus Christ. He is are great examplar, & I am greatful that He is there to look to at any given moment to help us in any situation. I try to follow his great charge "if you love me, keep my commandments." I do my best to do what He has asked me, but of course I am not perfect, but I know that through his grace, "or enabling power", I can always do better.
