Hi I'm Jake

I grew up in a the small town of Burley, Idaho. I go to school at Utah State and am on a mission.

About Me

I have lived in Idaho most of my life and have loved every second of it. I graduated high school in 2012. and went and attend Utah State for a semester (go aggies!). I played sports in high school. I love to be adventurous which is great because i can do practically anything where i live. My hobbies included mountain biking, wake boarding, Skiing, Rock Climbing, and just being outside. Pretty much the world is my playground. Living in Idaho and Utah has been awesome because i can pretty much do whatever i want that is outdoors. My friends are pretty awesome too, we just go to work play and then sleep and do it all over again. I am now serving a mission in Angola Africa.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and it has been a huge blessing to me. I can see Gods hand in my life all the time. Sometimes it has been hard to recognize my blessings in my life and what God has given me. In today's world many times people forget about what God has really given us. I have been guilty of not remembering God but i know that He loves me. I know that He has blessed me to have the gospel in my life. He blessed me with a family that I can be with for time and all eternity. I know that the book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ and that Joseph Smith translated it for us to learn and grow from it. I know that Jesus Christ came to this earth and suffered for us so that we can be forgiven of our sins and strive to be a better servants unto the Lord.

How I live my faith

I attend my church meetings every week. I love this gospel and all it does for me. Like i said earlier i will be serving a mission for my church and i am extremely excited to do so. I have not had a church calling recently because i have been moved back from Idaho and Utah and then back to Idaho. I have had church callings but i am mainly working towards being worthy.
