Hi I'm Jake Jensen

I'm a friend, an athlete, and a missionary. Most importantly, I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I grew up in a small town in what I believe to be the heart and soul of Utah! Although this town is one that I doubt anybody has ever heard of, I believe It to be one of the best places on earth! Where friends are close, and love within the community is strong! I have always considered myself to be a competitive, fun-loving, person so naturally I've been involved in many sports and hands-on activities. My favorite hobbies range from wrestling and football to mountain biking and golf! I absolutely love the outdoors and spending time with my wonderful family. I am currently serving in the Hawaii, Honolulu Mission!

Why I am a Mormon

I have been born of goodly parents! Parents that have always helped me to strive to be my best self, to always look and be grateful for the blessings that come from our Heavenly Father, and the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I have been blessed. I am the first to admit that I am not perfect. Through many trials and temptations in my life I have found so much strength in turning to the Savior and the teachings of this gospel. It was not always easy. But I cannot deny the feelings of love and confirmation I've felt, that I know were sent from God through the power of the Holy Ghost telling me that this is the truth and my desire, and that this is the true church. Applying the Atonement truly leads me to earnestly believe and know that Jesus Christ our Savior and He lives. I know that this is the gospel of love and of second chances. I know that our Heavenly Fathers love is unfailing and constant. He, in fact, sent His son Jesus Christ to save us all from the pains and afflictions of life on earth and opened the doors of eternal life for everyone! This is the same gospel that was taught, and established by Jesus Christ long ago and was restored through a modern day Prophet, Joseph Smith who was called of God. I have gained this testimony by praying to Heavenly Father and reading The Book of Mormon. I know that the Book of Mormon is also the word of God. I know this because I have received answers and confirmation by the Holy Ghost. I know that God loves all of his children and desires our happiness so he sent His son to Atone for us all so that we can be forgiven from sin and live with our families forever after this life.

How I live my faith

I try to be a good example and serve people around me. I strive everyday to obey God's Commandments and apply the Atonement daily.
