Hi I'm Jake

I'm a missionary in the Maryland Baltimore Mission, I'm a skateboarder, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 19 years old. I grew up in Granite Bay, California, and in high school, moved to Meridian, Idaho. I love my family more than anything. I love skateboarding and listening to music, (from the Pixies to the Chili Peppers, to the Velvet Underground) and sometimes both at the same time. Being a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is my life right now. I am currently serving in the Maryland, Baltimore Mission, and loving it! Fall 2015 I will be attending BYU-Idaho.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon not just because my parents are, but because I know for myself that it is God's only true church on the earth today. Prayer, reading the Book of Mormon, and attending this church is the only way I know this for myself. We have a prophet on the earth today! God still speaks to His children. He loves us. I know more happiness comes from this Gospel than anything else on the earth.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by following Jesus Christ. I do my best to be a good person and to contribute to society. Right now my biggest focus is sharing those truths most precious to me with everybody I come in contact with.
