Hi I'm Jake Whipple

Music is amazing, Horses are great, Friends are the Best. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I grew up in a small farm town in Southern Utah. We grew up on the farm riding horses, swimming in the creek and just having fun out in the hills. I love to ride horses. Nothing is better than a warm summer day to just ride and rope. Snowboarding in the winter jammin to Imagine Dragons comes close second. I love being around my friends and just talking hours away. Im currently serving a mission for the church in Pennsylvania afterwards I plan to head off to college and just love life.

Why I am a Mormon

Being born into the church it seems you don't have a choice of your own. I've learned that you most definitely have a choice of your own and the only way to truly be happy is to do what you believe in your heart. I am a Mormon because I believe in my heart that this is Christ's church once again established on the earth. I believe that because of trying it out for myself and living by its precepts and seeing the happiness that follows. I KNOW that prayer works. I've had experiences where I know my Heavenly Father has answered my Prayers. I know that he cares about all of us individually, that he does give each of us personal revelation, and that he wants us to be happy. Happiness comes through following the teachings of Jesus Christ and I know that those teachings are found in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

How I live my faith

So how I live my faith is by serving the Lord on a mission. I've loved being on a mission. Here I get to talk about my faith everyday. Its been one of the most challenging and rewarding things I've done in my life. I live my faith by being happy :). Life is a time for all people to be happy and I know with my life that I couldn't be happier than to be apart of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Nothing is better than smiling at people and sharing the happiness that I've been able to find in my life.
