Hi I'm Jake

I love being happy by making others happy. I enjoy writing songs on guitar. I love music. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

Hi! My name is Jake. I am a Senior in high school. I am a fairly typical high school Senior I think, an extracurricular activity or two and just waiting to graduate! I am in the Chamber Choir at my school and I love it! I love music; I play the piano, guitar, ukelele, kazoo, and the vocal chords! I love to sing! I love beautiful music. I love writing music on the guitar, and I have written a bunch of songs about life, girls, changing the world, and being yourself! I love writing music and lyrics especially. I love playing sports (just for fun) such as soccer, basketball, ping pong, volleyball, and anything that gets me moving! I also have been in musicals and stuff and I love that! It's way fun! My favorite thing to do is hang out with my friends! I love them! They have really changed who I am! I am getting ready to serve a mission for the LDS church in Paraguay and I can't wait to go! I am Jake, I am me, I am a song-writer, and I am a Mormon!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it is the happiest life I can imagine. I have been a member all of my life, and I know for myself that it is the true church. If it were not for the church and its' standards, I don't think I would be where I am supposed to be, and I would definitely be very confused and unhappy. I cannot imagine a truly happy life without the church. I love it!

How I live my faith

I believe that a Religion is not just what you do on Sunday, but how you live it! I love serving others. I am truly happiest when I make someone else happy! On Sunday nights I go to a nearby rest home and sing with a group of kids from our neighboring High schools and Jr. High schools and sing to the residents there! It's a lot of fun! I also love writing songs on guitar about being yourself and what I believe. I could sit down all day and play! I try to treat others as Christ would treat them, as a beautiful or handsome child of God. I try to live my life in a way that when I return Home after I die, I will be greeted by my Heavenly Father and he will say, "Well done" and give me a big hug. Then I imagine, lined up behind him, there will be people waiting for me to thank me for anything I have done that made their lives better. I can't imagine anything better! So that is how I try to live my life, to help others, just as Christ did.
