Hi I'm Jake

I grew up in Utah. I'm going on a mission to Jakarta, Indonesia. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to be outdoors. I am a skier, wakeboarder, mountain biker, and so many other things. I enjoy participating in races and Ironman events. I am in college. I love to play tennis. I am a son and a brother. I love doing humanitarian service.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon since birth. My whole family is Mormon, as are many of my ancestors. Still, I continue to live and follow the gospel of my own choice. I choose to continue to follow Christ's gospel because I know that it is true. I know that my Heavenly Father loves me and knows me individually. I know that he cares about me and that he has given me answers to my prayers. I have read and prayed about the Book of Mormon and have gotten my own answer, and I know that the Book of Mormon is the true word of God in addition to the Bible. I love the joy and spirit that this gospel brings to my life and I never want to lose that. I know that I am happier and feel better when I live closer to gospel standards and am closer to my Heavenly Father. Because I know that the gospel is true and I know of the happiness that it brings to me, I never want to leave it and lose that feeling. That is why I am and continue to be a Mormon!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to actively participate in my ward every week. I will be serving an LDS mission to Jakarta, Indonesia soon and am so excited to show Christ my faith and love for him. I cannot wait to bring others the happiness and joy that this gospel has brought me! I know that a mission is the best thing that I can be doing for the next two years and that it is what the Lord wants me to be doing.
