Hi I'm Jake

I'm from upstate NY. I love to skateboard, play soccer, or basketball. I love my family and friends. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the oldest son in our family of five. I have two younger brothers. I love them all very much along with my close friends. I love to play soccer and basketball anywhere that I can. I also love to skateboard and ski. I've grown up in a small town that has taught me many lessons. I am serving a mission in Las Vegas Nevada speaking Spanish and I am beyond excited. I'm very energetic and eager to meet new people. I would like to get a degree in Marketing or business management.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church and have chosen to stay with it because I know that it is true. I love the lord because he has brought me great feelings of comfort, relief and love. I couldn't imagine living my life without being able to turn to the lord. I love him and all of his children.

How I live my faith

I do my best to live life according to how our church intends us to. I pray often and study the scriptures. I take every opportunity presented to learn more about our church or even other religions view points. I teach the young men in the church my family attends. I think it was a blessing that I was given the power to teach my own little brothers and their friends at our church. I've learned that studying, in order to teach others the principals of our gospel is the most effective way for me to learn. This has made me extremely anxious to go to the missionary training center because I'll be learning more about our gospel in order to teach others. I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to serve.
