Hi I'm Jake

People often say that Faith doesn't last.... well, neither does bathing that's why we recommend it daily. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 24 years old, I love to ride dirtbikes and I dont like when I wreck, it hurts. Right now I am serving a 2 year Mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the Ohio Cleveland Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

Well I grew up in the church, but my parents weren't active members. I lived with my mother and she gave me the option to go if I wanted to go. As any normal kid I chose not to go and wanted to have fun with friends on Sunday. When I had just turned 21 I was in a pretty rough time of my life and didn't know where to turn to find happiness anymore. I remembered what i was always told growing up by family members and other Church members and that was to read The Book of Mormon. They had always said it will help you get through the rough times in your life and help you find happiness in anything that happens in life. I finally had decided to pick it up and read it. I found that happiness that they had talked about, and I do know for myself now that the Book of Mormon is True and it will in fact help us through anything we may face in this life. So the reason I am Mormon is because I have read the Book of Mormon and I know it's True.

How I live my faith

I am now serving a full time mission for 2 years. Back home I was a ward missionary. That is when you go out with other members that you go to church with and help people that may not know everything about the church. We were always there to help them with anything they need and to teach them about anything they may not understand about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

How is the Book of Mormon different from the Bible? How did Joseph Smith obtain the “golden plates” or Book of Mormon?

Jake
The Book of Mormon is no different than the Bible. It is just another testament of Jesus Christ to go along with the Bible. It is another witness that Jesus Christ did live and through him we can all be clensed from are sins because of the sacrifice he made in our behalf. Show more Show less
