Hi I'm Jake Wright

I'm from the great state of South Carolina. I love my family, basketball, running, and those BYU COUGARS. And yessir I'm a Mormon

About Me

Howdy. My name is Jake Wright and am from Summerville, South Carolina. Right now I am serving a mission in the Houston, Texas area. I live in Baytown right now and am enjoying all the new people I am meeting. Who knew that my new favorite words would be "dern," "choot," and "I reckon." I guess thats what Texas does for ya. I love any kind of sport. Love playing basketball, running, watching football. I love BYU football and basketball. Can't get enough of it. I love my family. They are so great and provide me with the best examples. I hate cold weather, eating at Burger King, and not getting a good nights sleep. I'm kinda running out of things to say so....thats me

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon my entire life and continue to follow the gospel because of the happiness it brings to my life. Being raised a Mormon has helped me in making good decisions and has kept me out of the trouble I have seen a lot of the kids my age get in to. I believe that the standard of living that Mormon's live is hard but is well worth it. I know that this church is the true church of Jesus Christ and I know it has the ability to bless every single persons life no matter what. This gospel brings such great joy into my life and I want it to do the same for others. I know that the Book of Mormon is the true word of God and I know that we have a living prophet on the Earth today, Thomas S. Monson. I am so greatful for all of the blessings Heavenly Father has given me and the trials he has put me through. They have made me a stronger person. I love this gospel!

How I live my faith

Right now I live my faith by serving a 2 year mission in the Texas, Houston East area. I have been out here for about a week and a half and love it! I love sharing what I believe with other people and teaching them about Jesus Christ. There isn't anything better I could be doing besides serving the Lord for 2 years!

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Jake Wright
This church is all centered around Jesus Christ and being like him. In order to do that we should help anybody and everybody. Mormon's want to help anybody they can be happy and have a purpose in there life. This gospel has blessed each of our lives in such a positive way that we wish for it to bless everybody's life. Jesus Christ loved everybody, and what we strive to do everyday is the same, love everybody and help people in any way you can. Show more Show less
