Hi I'm Jake

I was born in Seattle and raised in Utah. I play the drums, I'm married to my beautiful wife, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love music! whether it's singing about Jesus Christ or just rock'in out, it's my life! I play the drums and the acoustic guitar, and occasionally I will sing with my brothers. I love to skateboard and snowboard. I enjoy hanging out and watching movies with my wife. I love movies and will watch pretty much anything. I love taking naps! I look forward to the future and to starting a family! I treasure the truths that I learn from Jesus Christ and one of those truths is that my family can be forever. I am so excited for that! I love my wife and I love my Savior!

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member my entire life but it wasn't until I was about 17 years old when I really found out the importance of what I was doing. One day I decided to right all the wrongs I had been doing and I prayed to my Father in Heaven for forgiveness. When I was finished I felt like the roof of my car was gone and a flood of The Holy Ghost filled and overflowed my car. My whole body and soul were filled with this intense amount of joy and peace. I felt a weight that was pushing down on my shoulders become lifted as if there was nothing there. I felt so happy that I began to cry, and to thank my Father in Heaven for sending His son Jesus Christ so that I may become clean as I felt that day. Ever sinse that experience I have understood why I am a Mormon. Its because this church is true and I know now what I must do to live with God again.

How I live my faith

I am living my faith right now as a full-time missionary for the Lord Jesus Christ in Florida. I preach the Gospel to everyone I can because I want them to feel the same happiness and joy that I have felt in my life that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has given me. I'm so grateful for this opportunity to serve my Lord because He's done so much for me and I don't want anyone in the world to miss out on what they can get out of His sacrifice. He is The Christ, The holy Son of God. There is no doubt in my mind that He is, and that He lives. I hope that someday I will help someone come unto Christ and be Baptized so that they can be on their way to live with Him again.

In whom should we have faith?

Jake
We must have faith in God. That He is our Father. We must have faith that He is there and He listens to and answers our prayers. We must have Faith in His son Jesus Christ. That He suffered and died on the cross for our sins and that through him we may repent and become clean so that we can get baptized and be on the path to eternal life. Without Christ, we are nothing. Without faith in Him, we are nothing. It is essential if we want to live with God again. Show more Show less
