Hi I'm Jake

I am a Post-Hardcore Junkie, I love cruisin' on my Longboard, & I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Jake. I have been a mamber of the church all of my life. But, as of late, have finally discovered that it is true, and its what i would like to pursue. I am currently a missionary serving the the Boston, MA mission (Formerly the Connecticut, Hartford mission) I wrestled and played football in high school. And love to play sports still. I love the Denver Broncos, Utah Jazz, Dallas Mavs And Arizona D-Backs/Colorado Rockies. I love to make people laugh. And love to laugh myself. I LOVE music. I love the post-hardcore genre in particular. Coheed and Cambria is by far my favorite band. But, other interests include Circa Survive, We Came As Romans, Of Mice & Men, Sleeping With Sirens, Woe Is Me, City & Colour, Anberlin, Emery, Scary Kids Scaring Kids ADTR, The List goes on... I have also fiddled around with a band of my own called A Mid Winters Slumber Party. In which i played the bass. I love to hang out with my friends. Do whatever comes my way. Im not really particular.

Why I am a Mormon

I would love to say that i was born into it, and it was as easy as that. It isnt that simple. My story may be cliche, but its the truth. My family became active in our faith when i was about 6. And i went through the motions of it, like every kid most likely does. I walked away from living it in my teenage years. And had some things happen that brought me back to being a full fledged member. Since then, i decided to dedicate 2 years of my life to serve the Lord and show my love for Him. I may have been brought up in it, but it was my decision to continue living it. I love the Gospel, and the happiness it brings to me. Which happiness is only to be acchieved through the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

Well, thats pretty simple. Do my best to keep the commandments, and show the Lord how much i really love Him, and His Gospel. So much so, that im willing to do my best every single day to live it. Its easy to say that im a missionary and thats how i live it. But, it takes alot of determination and Integrity to live in such a way. Even though im anything but perfect, i try my hardest to be. And everything i lack, Jesus Christ makes up for. I love living the way Christ showed us.
