Hi I'm Jake

im from Nova Scotia and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up on the east coast of Canada. i was raised in the church there and growing up i was involved in many different sports and martial arts including, soccer, football, badminton, basketball, cross country, motocross, kapaweta, karate, boxing, muay Thai and Brazillian Jiu jitsu. I am the youngest of 8 children and am currently serving a mission for the L.D.S. church in Illinois.

Why I am a Mormon

i choose to be a member of this church for many reasons. First i feel God has guided me through the teachings of Jesus to be a far better person then without them. I remember a time in my life that i came to a cross road where i had to decide if i was going to choose to be a member of this church or leave it and go somewhere else. i thought quite often on what my future would be with the many choices ahead of me. i came to the realization that if i did beleive in a God and if He did care what we were going through that the best option would be to sincerly ask Him what path i should take. God certainly did answer my prayer and allowed me to understand that the path i needed to take was to live faithful to the teachings of the Gospel and through scripture study He taught me that i needed to serve a mission for His restored church on the earth. I am a member of this church because of the inspiration i have found in it and the excitement that comes through knowing the purpose of life and the fact that God certainly does have a plan for me as he does all of his children here. Through the teachings of Jesus Christ in the Bible and the book of Mormon i have really found a peace and direction that has come into my life through knowing the life i should live!

How I live my faith

i live the faith in many ways. although no member of this church is perfect we really do try to improve this world and strengthen the people in it. i currently am serving a full time voluntary mission for the church in the united states in the state of Illinois. i have been serving in the midwest full time for 23 months now and do service weekly in the community wherever i am living to try to help to make the comunity i am in a better place to live. i feel that all who are truly converted to the teachings of Jesus Christ love to share it with others and feel that teaching his Gospel to those around me is the best service i have to offer to the world. i also beleive Jesus Christ did the greatest service to us anyone could ever accomplish and am very greatful for all that he did for all of us!
