Hi I'm Jordan Flake

I love being around friends and family. I enjoy being outside and being active. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

First of all I must say that I am from Arizona and very proud of it! I also adore my family. My favorite thing to do is spend time with my family, whether that be watching movies or having cookouts, when I am with them it is always great. I was taught by my parents at a young age the importance of work and I now quite enjoy working outside. I have played many different sports (though I must say that I was never the best at any of them!) and I love being active. And as I mentioned watching movies with my family, that is one of my favorite things to do is just going in and turning on a good movie with some popcorn. I love being involved in the community. I was able to be involved in the student government at my school and I really enjoyed that. Camping is something that I also enjoy and loved doing it with my scout troop as I progressed to get my Eagle Scout Award. Through spending time in the outdoors I have really come to appreciate the beauty of God's creations on this earth. I love getting up early enough to see the sunrise as well as seeing the colors of the sunset. The most important thing about me however is that I love this church! It has brought me so much happiness. I have found friends and guidance from being a member of this church. As I have fulfilled callings that I have had in the church it has prepared me for so many things and I am so grateful for that. I know that Christ lives and that he is truly there for us at all times.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love the peace and happiness it brings me. While I am following the standards of the church I don't have to worry about certain things that can make people's lives harder because of the protection of the church. I am a Mormon because I know that Joseph Smith the Prophet did see our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and I cannot deny that. I am a Mormon because it makes me part of a family type unit. I know that wherever I go I can count on the members of the church to support me. I am a Mormon because I love this church and I know that it is the true church of God.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a mission in the New Hampshire Manchester Mission and am trying to share what I know to be true with others. I try to be the best person I can be so that people around me can see what I believe through my actions.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Jordan Flake
We do not worship Joseph Smith. We worship Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ. Joseph Smith was chosen by God to be a prophet and restore His church to the earth. So we respect Joseph Smith but we do not worship him. Show more Show less
