Hi I'm Jake Atwood

I dance like no one is watching. I can never sit still. I love to laugh. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Brother of six, I played football, baseball, and basketball in high school. I'm going on a mission to Colombia in September. And I love having a huge family!

Why I am a Mormon

You know, I've thought a lot about this. I grew up in the church, and I always went to church just because I was told. But that doesn't really get you anywhere, when you start dealing with problems. I struggled a lot with some stuff for six years of my life, and I finally turned to Christ and let him reach down and pull me up. He saved me, I know he did. So I guess the reason that I am a Mormon is simple really. I am a Mormon because I feel the love of Christ, and I want everyone to feel that love, and always have someone to rely on. That's why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I teach primary, It's pretty cool I love it. I actually teach my little brothers class, and the best part of it is singing with those wacky kids. I consider it the best calling in the church, it always brings a smile to my face.
