Hi I'm Jake

I grew up in South Carolina and am presently serving a full time mission in Pocatello Idaho and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love being outdoors, hiking, canoeing, jogging etc. I also really like to listen to music. I love older classic country music like Johnny cash, Hank Williams, and Johnny Horton. I think music can cator to every feeling that someone can have. So much motivation can come through music as well. I can't jog without music. Well, I can but I'd never choose to because it stinks. I love trying out new things and challenging myself. My goal is to hike the entire Appalachian Trail. I've really had great experiences afforded me and I am so grateful for the people that I have in my life to be there with me to make those fun times memorable.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I've seen more blessings due to membership in this church than I can say. I've experienced miricals in my life. Heavenly Father has given me so much and I am so thankful for the things that I've received. I know that this church is the church that Jesus Christ established and runs. I could never deny that because I've received a witness of it. There is indescribable peace and solace that is found within this Gospel and I know that contentment of the soul only comes because it is true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing just that. Living within the standards that the church sets. Everyone is given the knowledge of what is right and what's not. I put my effort in to making those right choices. The most guidance I can get comes through prayer. Prayer is so important and is given to us for our help. I know that Heavenly Father listens to each prayer spoken, whether outloud or silently in ones mind. The miracles in my life have come through my sincere prayers. I have no doubt, or any hesitancy that God lives and answeres prayers.
