Hi I'm Jake

I am a student, sports fan, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband and a father of three beautiful little girls. I love playing basketball and pretty much any other sport whenever possible. I love a good and honest discussion on pretty much any subject, and I like movies. I am currently a law student. Everyone always asks what I want to be "when I grow up," but I still don't know. I have worked at just about every job you can imagine- dishwasher, telemarketing, construction, electrical, store manager, UPS delivery assistant, little kids carnival assistant, landscaping, Spanish teacher, laundry, roofer, repairman, law clerk, and many others that I am can't think of right now. I like to work, and I like to try new things.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it makes me happy. I trust that God loves me, and if he loves me he will only tell me to do things that make me happy. I trust him, and I trust that his teachings will make me happy. As I obey what he tells me to do through his prophet it makes me happy. This lets me know that it really is his will. The more I obey the happier I am, and this makes me want to obey more. I have felt God's love, and I want to keep feeling that.

How I live my faith

I try to do what is right. I like to help other people feel that God loves them. I think that this is why we are on earth. This is most important in families. I try and show my wife and daughters that I love them every day. As I show them love they are better able to feel and comprehend the love that God has for them. I also try to do this at school and with my neighbors. I also work with the young people in the church. I try to help them see that their choices now are putting them on a path- whether for good or for bad. I try to let them see how happy I am so they choose to do what is right.
