Hi I'm Jake

I grew up in Idaho. I love the outdoors. I love the gospel and the peace it brings to my life. I'm a missionary I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've been a member all my life. I'm the oldest of 3 sisters (if you can imagine). I love my family we have had a lot of fun together. We love the state of idaho because of the outdoor activities there. I love hunting and fishing I've had the privilage of going on a few trips to Alaska with my dad which brought us closer together (and put a bear rug on the wall). Family is important to me my family is what brings me happiness. They are a huge blessing to my life. I also enjoy snowmobiling. I love cars and trucks (especially Diesel trucks). I'm a hard worker and believe that anything in life is possible if we just put our mind to it and work for it. I like to read business books and books on success. I've always been interested in business and investing. I'm currently serving as a misssionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I love serving others and I'm a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

The Church of Jesus Christ of latter Day Saints means so much to me. The Gospel brings me so much happiness and peace to my life that nothing else in this world will. When we make mistakes in life we can be fully healed through the Atonement of Jesus Christ. I have felt Gods love in my life as I have strived to be the person he wants me to be. The only way we can be the person he wants us to be is by applying the principles of the gospel to our lives. The really cool thing about the church is that we are encouraged to build a relationship with God as our heavely father. If we look at God being our heavenly father than we are his children and he loves us and knows us personally and because he knows us personally he can help us with our specific needs and challenges. My relationship with God is the most important thing that I have and were it not for the church my relationship with him wouldnt be nearly as strong as it is today. Our focus is always centered on Jesus Christ he is the cornerstone of our religion. What makes this church attractive is that it is the same church that Jesus Christ had established in ancient times built on a foundation of prophets and apostles these men have had a huge influence to my life as I listen to them speak I know they are speeking the truth. I have taken the time to read from the Book of Mormon and that simple act of reading everyday has brought me to the knowledge that the church is true. On top of all this I simply and sincerely prayed for God to let me know that the church was true, and he answered my prayer and that was all I needed.

How I live my faith

I currently am serving a mission for two years to help others come to the same joy that I have felt in my life. We teach the gospel of Jesus Christ and invite others to act on the message they hear. This has brought me a tremendous amout of joy. I have seen others come to the same joy by acting on the message and that is what is most important to me. Service to others is what Christ did while he lived here on earth we believe that he set an example of how we should live our lives. So how I live my faith is by striving to be like him. This has brought me happiness.
