Hi I'm Jake

I grew up mostly in Arizona. I love adventures. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm almost done with high school. I'm going to serve in the Cali Colombia Mission. I like to play sports, like soccer, baseball, and basketball. I love canyoneering, as well as talking with my best friend. I also enjoy my job and mountain biking, which are unfortunately not the same. Hunting and fishing are also fun, as well as hiking.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents raised me in the church, as did their parents before them. When I was young it was simply what I was taught, and that was my reason. But as I grew older, and began to learn about the differences between my religion and others, I came to know that it was true. I've seen the blessings that God has given me, and know that it is because of my faithfulness.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by not only doing the things that have been asked of me, but also through trying to understand why it is asked of me. I can do what I'm told, and simply go through the motions, but in order to become the best I can, I have to make the choice myself to do those things, and understanding why I want to do those things is part of making myself better.
