Hi I'm Jake

I grew up in southern Wyoming I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to golf, that is something that i have grown up with. My father taught me how to golf, and coached me through high school. I enjoy it when my family comes down and we all go golfing together. I love the time i spend with my family. Many times we are out riding horses and camping, or moving the cows around on the ranch. All the activities we do are as a family, we like to play board games or go fishing or really anything as a family. I especially love hunting. I hunt big game animals, like deer, elk, and moose. Every year when October comes around i get anxious to get out and go huntin', and living in Wyoming really allows me to do all these hobbies. When i got done with high school i went on to the University of Wyoming, but never really was much of a studier, but i really liked the social part of it. Especially with the instite program that the church has. When i was at college that was something that really helped me to find and keep good friends as well as have fun with all the activities. To sum it all up, i love the outdoors, family, and being a mormon!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because that is what makes me happy. Being a mormon helps me to avoid the pitfalls in life, and allows me to live in accordance with gods will and be united with my family. I love it because i have peace and know that my family can be together forever and that one day we can all return to live with god again. I know that god loves me, and that he has a plan for me, and that plan is that i, with my family, return to live with him again. Knowing that god has this plan for me, encourages me to do my best, and i know that he will help me on my way. As a family, and even with friends we have a lot of fun, wholesome activities help us to follow god and live the way that he wants. I have learned and know that god loves each of his children, he wants us to be happy, and i know that by being a mormon i have been able to find that happiness.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by helping those around me. In the church we have many opportunities to serve and help one another. In our congragation we help the widows out by a service project each year. We go into the mountains and cut firewood to give to them. As a young man i had the opportunity to go and help chop the wood into small chunks at each of their houses. Many times it was cold dark and snowey, but we felt that spirit of service and that is the way that i live my faith, trying to be a true follower of Christ.
