Hi I'm Jake

I write music. I'm studying Civil Engineering. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I'm a single college student studying Civil Engineering. I love to snowboard during the winter. I play piano and sing and even write music from time to time. I spent two years teaching the gospel in South Florida where I learned to speak Haitian Creole. I now teach new missionaries to speak Haitian-creole. I love playing pretty much all sports and hanging out with friends on the weekend. Movies are always fun to watch, especially Mega Mind.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in this faith and was taught about our Savior and his Atonement. Through a sincere desire to know that these teachings were true, I read in the Book of Mormon and prayed with a real intent to follow the answer. I received an answer that this is the true and living Church of Jesus Christ. It has the fulness of the gospel. As I live the principles of the gospel and study in the Bible and the Book of Mormon, I have come so much closer to my Father in Heaven. I have received great blessings of peace and guidance through the Holy Ghost. I have been guided by it along the path that Christ wants me to follow. I have been given strength and comfort to be able to endure the trials of life. I know that you can receive these same blessings as well.

How I live my faith

I help organize and plan for Institute each week for our stake (multiple congregations make up a stake). Institute is a program offered for all single adults to learn about the gospel, meet new friends, and have fun! We study the scriptures together and hang out afterwards and eat awesome food! I am also a hometeacher. A friend and I visit a handful of members of our congregation each month and make sure they're doing well. We share messages about Christ and offer help for anything they need. I'm also a member of a Civil Engineering society. We participate in service activities for the community such as building homes, parks, and helping at the local elementary schools.

What is faith?

When I have faith in Jesus Christ, I believe in Him to the point that I follow what He has taught and act the way He wants me to act. I become the person our Heavenly Father wants me to become. Show more Show less
