Hi I'm Jake Harris

I am an student at Utah State University studying mechanical eingeering and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am one that absolutely loves the outdoors. In my spare time I love to mountain bike, hike, trail run, and work on my family farm. I am a currently a student at Utah State. I will graduate in engineering in May of 2015. I had the amazing opertunity of serving a mission for the church. I served for two years in Sao Paulo Brazil. Brazil is a wonderfull place that changed my life. My time spent there truly set a pattern as to how I would like to live my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I find that as I follow God's teachings I am really happy. I know that God loves me. He is always there for me. By going to church and serving the Lord I have truly found that no matter what happens I can simle and be happy. I know that it sounds cliche but I am happy! I know that the Father is happy with me and what I am doing with my life. For a long time I searched for accpetance from God. Though I may not be perfect I can still at the end of everyday kneel down before my maker and know that he is here for me. The teaching of the church bring me hope and peace in this life. I am Mormon and wouldn't have it any other way.

How I live my faith

Since returning home from my Brazil my life has continued as a normal member of the church. I have the apazing opertunity to serve and help out my local congegration. I get to be over all the men in my congregation and help them continue on in faith living their religion. It is very rewarding to give meaningful service to them and my fellow communitiy. Besides serving in the church to help others I have the full time job of keeping myself spiritually nurished. I do that by alway doing my best to do daily scripture study and prayer. Thankfully I happen to have a temple only a half mile from where I am currenly living. It is a wonderful place where I can learn about the plan God has for me. I strive to go there as often as time allows.
