Hi I'm Jake Ray Murdoch

I am from Shelley Idaho I am a farm boy love the outdoors and am serving a two year mission in San DiegoCA and I am Mormon!!

About Me

I am from a small town called Shelley, Idaho, were I played on the high school football team for 2 years of 4, but my favorite sport was track, I have been doing it since 7th grade, and I love running as hard as I can, did not get into any cool classes in High School, just the basics, did take German for 2 1/2 years, that was prob's my favorite class. I am 20, and am currently serving a mission in San Diego California, for 2 years, and it is the most high paced, fun, hard working, and life changing experience that I have ever had. I worked on my Uncles farm from 10 to 16, so I am a farm boy, a hard worker, and like to get down and dirty as much as possible, working hard is something that my parents made a part of my life and I am forever thankful for it, it has made me a very dedicated person I am a big fan of reading, it is one of my biggest hobbies and one of the things that I do often, my favorite series is the Inheritance series by Christopher Poloini, I have probably read the whole series 4-8 times, so I know the whole plot and story line like the back of my head, the movie was a super disappointment.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member all my life, my family became members back in the 1830's-1840's, and since then we have continued to be members of the church, we all have grown in it, and all of us have had to gain a testimony of the church and I would like to share mine with you! I know that my heavenly father loves me as he has blessed me with one of the best families on the earth, and has given me the earth as a place to become a great person, and to learn about the restored gospel, and the Book of Mormon, which for a fact that I know is true and that Joseph Smith was a prophet, and I have read it and have come to the knowledge that it is the word of God, and that Jesus Christ is the savior and redeemer of the world, and that he suffered for every thing you can think of in the garden of Gethsemane, and I know that he lives, and loves me, and that he knows me, and nows what I go through on a daily bases, and he will always be there to be my savior and guide. HE LIVES

How I live my faith

I love to serve, I used to really hate serving but know I have a different look on what service is, helping the community or just some older people in the ward that are in dyer need of some help, I was part of the Boy Scouts, and we did plenty of things, lots of service. Service is my thing.

What blessings can we receive through the gift of the Holy Ghost?
