Hi I'm Jake

I grew up in Utah with my wonderful parents and sisters. I will serve a mission in Santa Cruz Bolivia. I am a Mormon

About Me

I just graduated from High School and turned 18 years old this summer. I will leave on my mission in 3 days for Bolivia. I love to ski and play sports. In high school I played football and tennis. I love to have fun. But most of all, I love getting to meet and getting to know people on a personal level, it is what makes life enjoyable because we are all in this together.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the church. This does not mean that it wasn't my decision to follow Christ, because I decided that for myself. I love the standards of this church. The standards keep you from harmful situations and addictions. The standards teach love and respect for everyone no matter their situation. I love the story in Joseph Smith History of the First Vision. His testimony is so powerful that even I can feel its power by reading it from his account. I also love Moroni's promise to anyone who reads the Book of Mormon which can be found in Moroni chapter 10. Find out for yourself if this church is right by reading the Book of Mormon and praying about it.

How I live my faith

I participate in the youth programs that the church provides. On Wednesday nights our age groups get together and participate in activities together. While some of the activities are hard work and provide service to others, we also have fun activities where the youth can bond with each other. The church is a great place for youth to grow up.
