Hi I'm Jake

I am a college student, I love my family, I love to do anything that involves being outside, I love sports and I am a Mormon

About Me

My name is Jake and my family is the most importnt thing in my life. My brother is my best friend, we would always be spending time together whether it was playing golf, swimming or going to the movies togther. We were eachothers support. About 2 years ago he had the opertunity to serve a mission for our church. when he leeft it was one of the hardest times in my life, and because of our differnce in age i knew that i would not be seeing him for 4 years, because the time would come while he was gone for me to go out and serve a mission. i left for my mission in April, and He returns from his in may.i wouldnt have changed anyting that has happened in my life, even not seeing my brother and best friend for 4 years. I love what i am doing right now and i know that it is the best thing i can be doing at this point in my life. During my time in high school i was very big into sports. i loved football and shot-put. these were two things that i was fairly good at. Sports are something that just help me clear my mind and focus on the important things in life. I love to be outside and doing anything that involves being active or in nature, there is just a sense of calming when your out in the mountains camping. i enjoy every second of my life and wouldnt change any part of it.

Why I am a Mormon

The reason i am mormon is not because i am forced to be or anything like that. I want to be Moromon. I Love every second of my life. My parents joined the church a few years before i was born. Because my parents made that decision, it has impacted my life ever sense. I grew up in a home of soild grounded principles and i was given every opertunity to learn and grow into my own person. i have had alot of friends who seem to have it all together but i know that they are missing something in their loves, and that is eternal famlies. I LOVE the fact that i know i can be with my family for all eternity, that brings me joy each and every day! I decided to serve a mission because of the pure happiness that i have had in my life and i want to share that simple message that families can be together forever! i dont know who wouldnt want that.

How I live my faith

Any opportunity that i see to share my testimony with others i will. I am so excited to be serving my mission and invite other people to share in the happiness which i have enjoyed for my whole life. I was never one to judge someone else for their faith i loved to talk with everyone and just be the best example that i could be. During high school people knew me becuase of the way i lived my life, and it wasnt in a negitave manner. It was all positive, people knew that i didnt go out and party on the weekends or do anything like that because of the way that i acted each and everyday. They knew i had standards and they respected them.
