Hi I'm Jake Packham

I'm a singer, actor, athlete, and a missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love sports. I play rugby, football, track, cross-country, wrestling, and cycling. The only thing I love to do more than to compete in athletics, is singing and acting. I am very passionate about music and the arts and perform in many different local performing groups. Sports provide a physical sense of accomplishment, while performing gives an emotional and spiritual satisfaction. It is extremely difficult to balance school, sports, music, and church, but I wouldn't want my life to be any other way.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I belong here. I have found more support, love and growth in this gospel. My parents raised me as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, but I didn't gain my own testimony until I had to know before going on a mission to New Jersey. I had made a billion too many mistakes and found that the Atoning sacrifice made me clean again. The priesthood power on the earth and that is only found in this church is what helped make that possible. I know that this is the truth.

How I live my faith

I love this church very much! I love participating in the young adult activities the church puts on for the college students in my area. There isn't a better organization that allows you to meet better people doing the best things you could possibly be doing. My favorite part about this church is it's teachings and beliefs on charity and service. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints provides so many opportunities to help others through service. Helping others allows me to be more grateful for the things I have been blessed with and when I feel blessed I want to help others out even more! It's a wonderful cycle that I hope never ends!

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is the greatest book on the Earth. It holds the teachings of Jesus Christ and other prophets that teach us how we can be happy in this life and gain eternal happiness in the life to come. Show more Show less
