Hi I'm Jake Reedy

I grew up in Holladay Utah and am now serving a mission in the New York New York North Spanish Mission!

About Me

I love art, music, being in the mountains, traveling, and meditation. I attended college in Chicago at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (shout out) but I am now serving a mission in the tongue of Spanish in New York City! Most of all I love my friends and family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because I know that through actively practicing my faith in Christ I can live a more meaningful deeper happier life in this life and the next!

How I live my faith

I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ and how it enables me to live closer to my savior. The great thing about the church is that everyone is sharing the same peace and happiness and tries to lift one another. I am living my faith by serving a mission in New York, by doing this I have seen the amazing blessings that come from the gospel, I have seen how God loves each and every one of His children and if we seek him out he is waiting to lift us.

What is the First Vision?

Jake Reedy
The first vision is the revelation that brought back the truth to the earth. As a young boy Joseph Smith had many questions about which church he should join. He had a deep desire to know the truth and to receive answers. One day after reading in James 1:5, he resolved to ask God himself the question "which church should I join?". In the spring of 1812 he went out into a grove in upstate New York to offer up the desires of his heart before God. He was then visited in God and His Son, and they directed Joseph Smith and communicated that the churches honored them with their lips but were far with their hearts. Later Joseph was a great tool in restoring many plain and simple truths to the earth. Show more Show less
